Google has confirmed that its Stadia game streaming platform will launch with 12 games this month, with an additional 14 arriving before the end of the year.
When it launches on November 19, players will be able to play or purchase games including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Destiny 2, Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11 and Tequila Works’ Stadia-exclusive horror game Gylt.

Stadia will be released in 14 markets in November: the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.
However, Google recently confirmed that people who’ve pre-ordered Stadia aren’t guaranteed to receive it by that date. It aims to fulfil all pre-purchases within two weeks of launch.
To access Stadia this year, users will need to buy the $129/£119 Founder’s Edition, which includes a Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition controller and a three-month Stadia Pro subscription. Alternatively, they can buy the Premiere Edition, which comes with a white controller.
The Pro subscription, which will normally cost $9.99/£8.99 per month, offers 4K/HDR streaming with 5.1 surround sound and approximately one free game per month.
A free version of the service, Stadia Base, will offer up to 1080p streaming with stereo sound when it launches in 2020.
