Google Stadia is coming out soon and if you’re getting access at November 19, 2019, then you may want to get a heads up on what video game titles are worth purchasing. Whether you missed out on this generation of video game platforms or just looking to enjoy something new with the Google service, then we have the top rated games that are confirmed for the Google Stadia launch below.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed latest installment is known as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The video game is set in 431 BCE where players will have the choice of being a mercenary that fights for Athens and the Delian League or the Peloponnesian League led by Sparta. Either way, players will be a descendant of Spartan King Leonidas I during the Peloponnesian War.
Much like the previous Assassin’s Creed installments, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will feature a modern day protagonist as well. Ubisoft will be reintroducing players to Layla Hassan who was present during Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Destiny 2: The Collection
The sequel to Destiny takes place after the events of Destiny: Rise of Iron. This title starts off with the Red Legion faction of the Cabal having attacked The Last City. Guardians are forced to flee and find new powers to face the Red Legion and bring order over The Last City once again. Just as before, there is new content being added to the game in order to extend narratives or competitive gameplay with other players.
Mortal Kombat 11
Do we really need to explain Mortal Kombat at this point? The franchise has been around since 1992 and its received installments over the years since. The latest installment being Mortal Kombat 11 which came out this year and it’s filled with a variety of fighters both old and new. The big appeal for this game is the vs mode as its still a 2.5D fighting video game full of brutal fatalities, easy to pull off move sets and again as mentioned a long list of characters you are likely familiar with such as Raiden, Sonya Blade, Liu Kang, Kitana, and Baraka to name a few. If this release is anything like the last installment to Mortal Kombat then we will likely find more familiar characters added into the roster from DLC launches.
Red Dead Redemption 2

Their beloved long-running series Grand Theft Auto, the single IP release of Bully, and of course their old western series, Red Dead Redemption just to name a few.
