Google Stadia confirms the 12 games – including one exclusive – that will be available when the platform launches later this month.

We were at GDC when Google unveiled the Stadia game streaming platform earlier this year. With an impressive, albeit overlong, stage presentation and demo pods around the Moscone Center, it really felt like Stadia could be a game-changer.

Since then, a steady trickle of announcements has done nothing but dilute our excitement. Right now, we wouldn’t place too many bets on Stadia being the future of games.

It’s early days of course, and every platform has to start somewhere. Google has announced that Stadia will start with a paltry 12 games at launch.

There are some quality titles amount the launch lineup, make no mistake. Highlights include Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2, Drool’s Thumper and Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Pick of the bunch is the only brand new – and exclusive – game on Stadia, Tequila Works’ spooky fantasy adventure, GYLT.
