Let’s hit the highlights of what you can start playing on Stadia right now.

More on the horizon from Stadia Games & Entertainment

Outcasters is coming this fall: a frenetic competitive multiplayer game where you can aim around corners! Compete across different maps and game modes, unlock endless pick-ups and abilities, and customize the look of your absurd little Outcaster. Outcasters is being developed by the shooter specialists at Splash Damage. We’ll have more to tell you about Outcasters in the coming months.

We’re working with more studios too, like Harmonix, Uppercut Games, and Supermassive Games. Soon, we’ll be sharing more about what they’re creating for Stadia.

A new game on Stadia lets you unleash your inner troubadour

You’ll really want to try One Hand Clapping. There’s nothing else like it: a stylish platformer where you control your avatar by singing. Hum, whistle, chant, or yodel to move your character across obstacles. It’s ridiculously fun to play, and just as much fun to watch someone else playing.

This initial Early Access version of One Hand Clapping gives players just a small sampling of what’s coming in the full game. It includes about twenty minutes of musical gameplay to give you a sample of just what to expect. New instant updates will continue to expand on the game and add new features. One Hand Clapping is available to buy on Stadia today in Early Access for a limited-time discounted price $2.99 USD, with mic control currently supported on laptops, desktops, and TVs with Chromecast Ultra.

Tombs need to be raided. Grab your friends.

Confront ancient magics and dark passages in Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris. As Lara, Isis, Horus, or Carter, unearth sprawling tombs, outwit enemies, and escape cunning traps in search of treasure! Up to four players can cooperate on Stadia to solve puzzles and bring the buried secrets of the past to light. Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris is ready to buy on Stadia for $19.99 USD, and for a limited time it’s $10 for Stadia Pro members.

Take control of live streams with Crowd Choice and Crowd Play

If you were watching carefully during the Connect, you spotted a glimpse of two upcoming Stadia Enhanced Features. Soon, you’ll be able to play with your favorite Creator while the world watches with Crowd Play. As the action unfolds live on YouTube, you’ll be able to join in and fight alongside (or against) Creators in Dead by Daylight, or take them on head to head in Super Bomberman R Online.

With the other upcoming Stadia Enhanced Feature, Crowd Choice, you’ll be able to vote alongside other fans on YouTube and take control in games like Dead by Daylight. Choose whether the Creator is Victim or Killer, and pick which Killer they’ll play.

Both Crowd Play and Crowd Choice are headed to Dead by Daylight, as well as select other games coming to Stadia.


Don’t miss The Elder Scrolls Online on Stadia Pro

There’s still time to get The Elder Scrolls Online for free on Stadia Pro. Grab TESO for free before 7 AM PT on July 16 and it’s yours to keep with your Stadia Pro subscription. After July 16, you’ll still be able to pick up TESO in the Stadia store for $19.99.

I am so excited for Dead By Daylight. I am so happy it's coming to Stadia

Thanks for all the updates! Any news about family subscriptions?

Keep up the amazing work 🙂

I wish hyperscape and apex legends was announced but the games are kinda cool.

Keep doing what you do Stadia. Rome wasn't built in a day and at this rate we'll all be Dead by Daylight anyway 🙂

Guys, this is all good but please share a road map with us. Next-gen is coming soon and there's many people out there ready to ditch Stadia if they don't see progress on things like Family Sharing, more countries, Ray Tracing support, iOS support, etc. you don't need to announce dates, just say you're working on these things, and give updates on their progress. I know these things take time and thankfully the games are slowly getting here. but a road map would be much appreciated.

Games, games, games! I can't wait!!! 😄

I just bought Ghost Recon Breakpoint for $2.60! I love Stadia! 

Community Member

You mean £12.60?

I'm happy more games are announced, but I have to agree with one of the postings on here... Give us a roadmap, even just a ballpark estimate.

It would make me & so many others happy if you said something relatively vague like "Family sharing is coming September!" Or something.

I hate to say it, but this holiday Stadia will be an afterthought once next Gen console's launch. I don't want that of course, I have loved Stadia, but for a company that excels in the internet world, communication has been pretty lackluster.

Community Member

Instant connect.  Yeah

I agree with others in regards to sharing a road map. We don't need hard dates. The approximate quarter of release would be helpful with monthly updates to the road map. That way you can share what is coming faster and what is moving back. Also, in regards to next-gen consoles, it would be great if you can share with some kind of detail how you plan to remain competitive against the next-gen consoles.

 

Thanks. 👍🤘

Amazing news Stadia!

Thank you as well for Orcs must die 3 that's pretty to cool to be able to play it directly now as Stadia Pro member.

Personally I am super excited for Outriders, Outcasts, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

If family sharing is coming soon as well a dream would become true ❤️

@ImBatman if you use your $10 coupon, it comes out to $2.60. unless you used yours already.

Please be quick. Come to ARGENTINA!!!!

Family subscription would be amazing!

I have been trying to figure out how to play online co-op with my son on some of the games I have without paying for the game twice.

I think family subscription would make Stadia more appealing to gaming families. 

Community Member

Orc's must die 3 is lots of fun!

Community Member

Amazing technology. It works perfect on my devices, and the stadia controller is great!

But at the moment i think it's not worth paying the monthly subscription. Too expensive for the catalogue, in comparision to other streaming or gaming subscription services.

BUT I THINK THAT ADDING THE "GOOGLE PLAY PASS" TO STADIA PRO, OR GOOGLE PLAY GAMES WILL MAKE THE SUBSCRIPTION TO STADIA PRO MORE WORTHLY.

Amazing technology but it needs to improve a lot the offer, prices and the catalogue, if you want to compete with playstation, xbox,... 

Community Member

Great games are coming, that's great! What about family sharing?  I don't want to buy a game twice for someone who lives with me 

Founder

Good stuff. I am very happy about the Lara Croft game. Now we need family sharing and *please* some strategy games. Civilization, cities skylines etc.

Community Member

Launching Lara Croft without local co-op is underwhelming. I was going to buy it but without being allowed to play with my wife I'll have to pass. 😑

Orcs Must Die! 3 free for StadiaPro is awesome!!!  Bring old games like Sekiro and new games like Outriders and Hitman3 is good.. we saw last week new games coming from Ubisoft this fall, and we know other great games are coming this year such as Baldur's Gate 3, Marvel's Avengers and Cyberpunk 2077(this year?).. this is very good!!

But... there is a but.. something is missing in last two Stadia Connect! A sincere WOW effect.. for me this time was Sekiro.. but it was released 1 year and half ago, and I'm scared about the price... for sure I'll buy it! I never played (I don't have a current gen console, and my PC is too old) and for sure when the game reach the right price I'll buy it, and I'm happy for that.. the same for Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, this is the main reason I got Stadia Founder Edition at the day one! but other players for sure need more to choose Stadia instead of PS4 or XBOX One or better next gen console...

The "Stadia Experience" is amazing, and I understand that this should be the main feature, but the game library still too little, and some price too high.

Good job stadia team i also I was unexpected the dlc was in the game hahaha nice one Lara Croft and the temple of osiris best way to get everything completed thanks Stadia team

Community Member

My previous network hardware made it impossible to enjoy Stadia. Now I renewed it but I won't buy a Stadia game or a subscription unless you create a demo to test responsiveness, quality and performance. Speed tests aren't enough.

Community Member

Expand your Stadia datacenters pls!

India, australia, south korea.. 

 

And the connect was a snoozefest, I better lower my expectations next time. 😒

At least OMD3 is decent.

I am very much enjoying my time with Stadia and their first game, Orcs Must Die! 3. I do recommend sprucing up the Stadia Games & Entertainment splash screen though. It's a little bland. Add some pizzazz to it, Stadia team!

Ghost recon is suffering terrible frame rate issues.  Definitely not connection issues.  Feels more like a hardware issue.  What is being done about it?

Outcasters looks like it could be fun. Will wait for reviews and price though before getting too excited.

Community Member

I love Stadia but can only use it on my Mac. A bit sad. Still hoping for some google Chrome work around to bring stadia to IOS or Vizio TV App
