TEKNOKU.me – At the time of its introduction in March, Google plans to launch the Stadia cloud gaming service in November.
Now, at the Made by Google 2019 event held in New York City, USA, Google finally provides clarity that the service will launch in the near future.
“The stadium will be available on November 19,” said Google Senior VP Devices and Services, Rick Osterloh, at the Made by Google 2019, Tuesday (10/15/2019) morning US time.
Osterloh actually did not disclose anything about Stadia, other than the date of its availability. However, there are some things that have been revealed by Google at the Stadia launch event a few months ago.
Stadia is a gaming platform that can be played streaming without having to buy a console, download games, or buy disks. All game data processing relies on cloud computing or Google data centers.
Because it utilizes hardware that is on the server, Stadia can also be played on various devices that have screens, including TVs (with the help of Chromecast Ultra), laptops, and Pixel 3 / 3XL smartphones to Pixel 4 / 4XL.
For ease of control, the player can use a controller that is already owned, including the keyboard, mouse, PS4 controller, and Xbox controller.
Google also provides a Stadia Controller that has functions similar to the Xbox controller, but with an extra Google Assistant button and recording button to take photos and videos from the game.
Concerning performance, Stadia is able to display images with a resolution of up to 4K with a frame rate of 60 fps and has been accompanied by 5.1 Surround Sound sound technology to help produce sound output blaring the third gameplay.
Stadia can play “AAA” or the latest high-end games, such as Cyberpunk 2077, Destiny 2, Baldur’s Gate 3, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Division 2.
Stadia itself is planned to be launched in 14 countries, including Belgium, Finland, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Other countries are planned to follow in 2020. Even so, Google has not to spit out any region that will be visited by Google Stadia next year.
