These are the best games to try at Google Stadium

On this holiday, many can receive a gift from Google Stadio, or a special Stadia Premiere Edition package. For those who are just starting to stream games in the cloud, here are our recommendations for the best starting games at Google Stadium.

Destiny 2

One of the possible disadvantages of getting a Stadium for Christmas is that the donor may not know for sure if your internet connection is good enough for streaming games. Fortunately, before you unpack the Stadia Premiere Edition or exchange your gift account, you can play Destiny 2 at the Stadium for free on your computer or phone, without the need for a free trial of the Stadia Pro or any purchase.

Also, in addition to being a fantastic test for the Stadium, Destiny 2 is an endless first-person shooter with RPG elements from the studio created by Halo. Between things like pooled strikes, competitive multiplayer Crucible and single-player missions in the game – though many need to be unlocked with paid DLC – as well as full multi-save support to bring your character from another platform, Destiny 2 is ready and willing to be your one-man game on Google Stadium.

If shooters aren’t your thing, and you still need a game to test the connection, Super Bomberman R Online is also completely free to play on Stage.

Cyberpunk 2077

Now I know what you might be thinking. Yes, Cyberpunk 2077 is absolutely a mess that will take you months to correct.

However! As a shock to everyone, the Cyberpunk 2077 works surprisingly well on the Stadium, with significantly better graphics than the latest generation consoles, along with support for 4x 60 frames per second with the Stadia Pro.

Cyberpunk 2077

In case you somehow haven’t heard, Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person RPG with CD Project Red, the creator of the video game series The Witcher. The game takes place in a highly futuristic corporate dystopia where the main character V is fitted with a chip containing the consciousness of a partly rock star, partly a terrorist Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves.

Although, again, the game is full of bugs and problems, Cyberpunk 2077 is playing surprisingly smoothly at the Stage and I hope it should take shape over the coming months. Meanwhile, the game serves as a fantastic exhibit of what streaming streaming is truly capable of.


Each console is rightly judged based on its exclusive solutions, and Google Stadio is no different. Stadia’s collection of exclusive games “First on Stadia” and “Only on Stadia” is still limited, but our personal favorite exclusive is Outcasters.

Outcasters is a top-down shooter in the arena shaped towards vinyl toys, offering the game a unique look and feel as well as almost endless customization options. The core hook Outcasters is that you are able to bend and control bullets after they are fired, making some wacky and smart games that test your reflexes and ability to predict opponents.

More importantly, Outcasters is one of the many games that can currently be requested for free from Stadia Pro, so be sure to download it during the free trial.

Red Dead Redemption 2

If you’re looking for a game and a world you’ll really sink your teeth into after setting up with Google Stadium, look no further than Red Dead Redemption 2. As the latest entry into Rockstar’s highly acclaimed Red Dead series, The Story takes place before it begins 20th century and serves as a sign of Red Dead Redemption.

Red Dead Redemption 2 for Google Stadion

You play Arthur Morgan, a respected member of the Van der Linde gang, but also a man with purpose and conscience. As America modernizes and as the lawless period ends once the Wild West is over, the Van der Linde gang is forced to adapt and secure their own. All in all, the experience of a single Red Dead Redemption 2 player is conceived and deeply emotional in a way that doesn’t achieve many games.

In addition, Red Dead Redemption 2 will bring you back even more thanks to an equally massive and ever-evolving multi-player Red Dead Online experience. At Google Stage, Red Dead Redemption 2 is more accessible and mobile than it has ever been.

Orcs must die! 3

Another exclusive Stadia, Orcs Must Die! 3 is, despite the name, the fourth entry into the popular series of tower defense games. Defend each level from the invasion of orcs and other mythical monsters using any combination of traps, from simple floor spikes to complex distractions and dangers.

Orcs must die!  3 for Google Stadium

What Orcs must die! 3, in addition to most other tower defense games, in combat you can borrow your own weapons, skills and magic, perfect for choosing a spreader. You can even bring a friend to enjoy all levels of the addictive cooperative experience.

Thanks to the power of the Stadium and cloud games, Orcs Must Die! 3 can show larger simultaneous enemy waves than was previously possible in the series. Orcs must die! 3 is currently free to claim Stadia Pro, and there is an optional Drastic Measures DLC that includes multiple levels as well as multiple traps to fight the next horde.
