In a livestream presentation Google revealed that Stadia, its cloud gaming platform, will launch in November with a limited edition starter pack for early adopters.
Stadia games will run on servers at Google data centres around the world, with the video footage streamed to a TV. The company said that Stadia will give gamers over 10 teraflops of graphics processing – more than the Xbox One and PS4 combined. The service will also offer 4K gaming,
The system is available now for pre-order in the UK for £119. A starter pack includes a Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra TV stick and a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro. A subscription will then cost an additional £8.99 per month.
Major studios such as EA and Bethesda will provide games for the service but big developers, such as Epic Games, are still missing.
