Google’s game streaming platform Stadia is live for more than two months now. As promised, Google is delivering the last batch of games. It includes Borderlands 3, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The US search engine giant has now revealed that it will add more than 120 games in 2020. While more than 10 games are likely to join the platform in the first half, the remaining will be available in the latter half. This will be a massive jump from the 26 games and one exclusive that are currently available. Google in a statement said the company is working with its partners to bring the games soon.
The company added gamers can expect more features in the first quarter. Google in the next three months is planning to release support for 4K web gaming. It is also looking at improving assistant functionality for web gaming. Besides, Google said the Stadia controller will get wireless support for laptops, desktops, phones, and tablets this year. The wireless functionality will use built-in WiFi. It will directly connect to Stadia servers when users are playing games. It will significantly reduce input lag. Stadia already support third-party controllers from Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Google noted that the key benefit is that the new features can be added without any updates or downloads.
Google has also confirmed introducing four games Doom Eternal, Cyberpunk 2077, Gods and Monsters, and Watch Dogs: Legion this year. However, none of them have confirmed release dates for Stadia. Google Stadia was launched with 22 games on board on November 19 last year to take on Apple Arcade. Meanwhile, Google has started testing Stadia gaming on non-Pixel Android devices. Last November, Google had said it wants to bring its cloud gaming service to as many devices as possible. The company is already running a randomized testing trial to see how non-Pixel smartphones handle Stadia. If all goes well, Stadia will soon be extended to all Android devices.
