Everything We Learned At Google’s Stadia Connect Presentation

Stadia, Google’s new video game streaming service, will go live this November. The service will launch initially in 14 countries: the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.

The November release of Stadia will be for Stadia Pro subscription members only, and even then only through purchase of the Stadia Founder’s Edition Pack. Stadia’s base service, which is free but comes with limited features, won’t launch until 2020. Here’s a breakdown of what each tier of the service offers:

The Stadia Founder’s Edition Pack will contain a Chromecast Ultra, which will support the 4K 60FPS gameplay that Google has promised, an exclusive Night Blue controller, a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro, as well as a Buddy Pass that will allow you to offer three months of Stadia Pro to a friend. Purchasing the Founder’s Edition Pack will also allow you to reserve a Stadia username early, which will be tied to your Google account. The Stadia Founder’s Edition Pack costs £119 and can be preordered now exclusively through Google’s G-Store.
