Google Stadia adds Borderlands 3 and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Since its launch in November this year, Google’s game streaming platform Stadia has become popular among youngsters. The cloud gaming service has now included Borderlands 3 and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Ghost Recon Breakpoint is reportedly coming soon.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the first game to offer Google’s promised Stream Connect feature. This allows players to see their teammates’ screens so they can coordinate.
After adding these games, Google has also reportedly confirmed four new ones for 2020 - Doom Eternal, Cyberpunk 2077, Gods and Monsters, and Watch Dogs: Legion. None of them have confirmed release dates for Stadia.
There’s also a holiday surprise that Stadia founder’s Edition mentioned - an extra Buddy Pass that can be gifted to a friend or family member so they can test out Stadia for themselves. The Buddy Pass gives a friend three months’ free use of the Stadia Pro service.
This is the second Buddy Pass that Google is giving users, as a part of its marketing campaign to promote the service.
According to reports, the Buddy Pass needs to be activated within three months of being gifted, once it expires, the user will be charged $9.99 (Rs. 710.36)/month for Stadia Pro unless the subscription is cancelled.
