2021 is right here, and Stadia is beginning it off with a bang. Following the quiet ultimate week of 2020, Stadia information was nonetheless fairly scarce this week other than the notable delay of the upcoming sport Outriders.
Introducing “Stadia Changelog,” our new weekly sequence the place we spherical up what video games have arrived on Stadia prior to now week, what video games have been rated for the platform, and updates launched for video games on the platform.
New video games coming to Stadia
Whereas we had large hopes for the primary “This Week on Stadia” of 2021, there wasn’t something truly price sharing. No new video games have been truly launched on the platform, however fortunately, there have been a few video games seemingly confirmed for Stadia.
Our good mates over at StadiaSource observed that two new Stadia titles handed by the USK score board this week. That features Monster Power Supercross 4, which was formally announced not too long ago as being launched in March. Extra necessary is Phoenix Level. The sport was announced throughout Stadia’s “Good Stuff” occasion a number of months in the past, and based mostly on this, evidently it’ll be popping out sooner relatively than later.
Stadia Recreation Updates
Immortals: Fenyx Rising “A New God” Growth
The primary DLC for Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising surfaced on Twitter this week with a January 21 launch date no less than on Nintendo Change. It’s seemingly for apparent causes that this can arrive on Stadia, although it’s unclear how a lot it is going to price.
Outriders will get a slight delay on all platforms, Stadia included
On Twitter this week, the builders behind the upcoming sport Outriders confirmed that the title was being delayed to April 1, 2021. The sport was initially scheduled to debut in December 2020 and was then delayed to February 2021 earlier than deciding on this date one other month later. This Outriders delay isn’t all dangerous information, although, as the sport will supply a playable four-hour demo on February 25, 2021, the place gamers will have the ability to strive all 4 courses and each single-player and co-op.
Proper now, it’s unclear if the demo model of the sport will probably be obtainable to Stadia gamers, however the delay on Outriders as a complete certainly contains that port.
What we’re enjoying this week
Ben Schoon — Threat of Rain 2
Are you able to inform I’m addicted? Threat of Rain 2 was the spotlight of my Stadia week but once more, although this time there was a little bit of a twist. I ended up streaming the sport with a friend of mine on Twitch this week, and we shortly observed that his stream was far sharper than it had been whereas he was streaming different video games instantly off of his PC. Perhaps it was the lesser stress on his machine? Most likely, however in any case, it definitely had him excited.
Kyle Bradshaw — Future 2
I’ve as soon as once more been sucked into the time wormhole that’s Future 2. This week, the sport launched the most recent mission to progress the story of the Season of the Hunt. This mission ended up being extra irritating than the rest, because the ever-present boss will often glitch in a approach that retains the mission from progressing. Humorously, the advice we were given by Bungie was to decelerate, that we have been killing it too shortly. I suppose issues like this are merely a part of the continued actuality of parents working throughout a pandemic.
Damien Wilde — Watch Canine Legion (sort of)
I’ve tried to play by a little bit extra Watch Canine Legion however regardless that the open world seems superb and “bustling”, it’s acutely devoid of any actual substance. So I’m again flitting between RDR2 with a little bit Outcasters thrown in for good measure.
Bradley Chambers — Jedi: Fallen Order
One of many issues I’ve been grateful for this week with Stadia is having the ability to choose up Jedi: Fallen Order and play the place ever I’m and the video games mechanically regulate the controls and layouts. Regardless if I’m utilizing a mouse and keyboard or a Stadia controller, Stadia by no means misses a beat with playback. I can’t wait to make the most of that with Madden 21, too, if EA ever will get round to it.
