Google‘s upcoming video game streaming platform Stadia has just been announced to arrive in November of this year with full compatibility across TVs, PCs, Laptop, and smartphones. Stadia will offer specific games to buy as well as a subscription service of $10 USD a month to play high-end games without the need for a console or computer by plugging Chromecast into the TV and accessing titles through the cloud. The subscription service offers titles at 4K resolution and 60 frames-per-second at 35mbps.

A free version of the subscription service is due to arrive that’ll be capped at 1080p, but for now, a Founder’s Edition bundle will be available for $130 USD at launch which will be required to play Stadia this year until the complete rollout next year. This also means the service won’t be accessible on smartphones and internet browsers until then.

The Founder’s Edition comes with the $70 USD standalone Stadia controller, Chromecast Ultra, a copy of Destiny 2 and its newest expansion, and a three-month subscription and three-month pass for a friend. Titles like Ubisoft‘s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Ghost Recon: Breakout will be available, as well as a new adventure game from Tequila Works called Gylt and the long-awaited Balder’s Gate 3.
