Hitman and Madden on Stadia highlight an otherwise slow start to 2021

Hitman and Madden on Stadia highlight an otherwise slow start to 2021Source: IO Interactive

I don’t think Google could have ended 2020 in a stronger position than it did with Stadia. After several months of uncertainty and launch woes following its debut in November 2019, Stadia has now come into its own as of late. After the surprising success of Cyberpunk 2077, which now tops our list of the best Stadia games, Google’s cloud gaming service is in a better position than ever going forward, even if the start to 2021 has been a bit slower.

However, now that Stadia has shut down its first-party studio to focus on platform development and third-party support, the future is looking even more open.

Stadia Status is our monthly recap of what’s new and what’s next for the Stadia platform. Let’s dive in!

Stadia Status: January 2021 Recap

Scott Pilgrim Subway Car Level

Source: Ubisoft

The first few weeks of the month began with almost complete silence. Other than shuffling around a few Stadia Pro games like Hotline Miami and F1 2020, there wasn’t really much to get excited about so far this year until last week. However, in the second half of the month we got Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition, followed by Hitman 3, and it was a really solid one-two punch.

Scott Pilgrim isn’t a perfect beat ’em up, but it does a lot right and features some of the best pixel art and chiptune music I’ve witnessed this side of the 16-bit era. Switching gears for Hitman 3 was a shock to the system, but it’s a great reminder of how magical Stadia can be when utilized to its fullest.

With the launch of Hitman 3, Google also completed its rollout of State Share, a feature that allows you to simply take a screenshot and save a “state” of your game to share with others. For Hitman, this means your mission, difficulty, objectives, and loadout can all be saved in the cloud for someone else to pick up and play. I’m really excited to see how this feature is utilized in future games.

There wasn’t really much to get excited about so far this year until last week.

Beyond that, Hitman 3 was exciting for Stadia because it’s a well-known and high-caliber title that launched on the exact same date as every other platform, just like Cyberpunk 2077. In order for Stadia to keep growing, it needs to do this with every new release. When faced with whether or not to buy a game on Stadia or any other non-cloud platform, sometimes Stadia will win out with gamers due to the allure of no downloads, no updates, and no patches. Speaking from experience, it’s really nice not having to wait for a 100GB game to install or twiddling my thumbs while Elder Scrolls Online downloads its latest patch.

This past week, we got a handful of other really solid games, like the XCOM-like turn-based strategy title Phoenix Point and the long-awaited Madden NFL 21 from EA. I’ve been a Madden player ever since the Sega Genesis days, and I am most excited for what Madden’s release means for the future. If we’re on the verge of getting more EA titles, such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, on Stadia, then that’s huge news. Hopefully, Apex Legends isn’t far off, or Star Wars Battlefront 2.

I get the feeling that January was a slower month intentionally due to how big November and December were with the deluge of Ubisoft titles and big new releases like Cyberpunk. Back at launch, Google said Pro would usually include one game included with its subscription per month, but over the last few months, it’s gotten as high as six Pro games in a single month. That’s a great value.

Stadia Status: February 2021 and beyond

Since Journey to the Savage Planet is finally releasing in February from Typhoon Studios, a company that Stadia Games & Entertainment acquired way back in December of 2019, I originally wanted to believe that means it would open up the door to more first-party Stadia titles, but that’s no longer a possibility. As of today, Google is shutting down all of its internal Stadia studios, according to a recent statement.

What Stadia needs is a big, platform-selling must-have game that you can’t play anywhere else

This is troubling news because, more than anything, Stadia needed big exclusives to attract users to the platform. We have no idea what Jade Raymond, who was in charge of the project, was working on over these last few years and now she’s gone.

Cyberpunk 2077 sort of became the game to get for Stadia for a brief period of time, but that was basically an accident. In place of actual first-party titles, what we need now is long-term planning, clear and transparent communication, and alluring releases that get the Stadia community excited for reasons other than getting just another old port.

In the near term, February could be another slow month for Stadia compared to the end of 2020. Journey to the Savage Planet should be a good, quirky adventure with its exclusive Stadia content, but other than that, we don’t know much about what’s coming next. The previously-announced FIFA 21 is a safe bet on the heels of Madden, though, so we’ll probably see that in February. I’m expecting Ubisoft+ to continue expanding as well and for more THQ Nordic titles to make their way onto Stadia.

God of War is getting a free PS5 update bringing it to 4K 60 FPS

God of War is getting a free PS5 update bringing it to 4K 60 FPSSource: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Sony Santa Monica’s 2018 title God of War reached critical acclaim and commercial success on the PS4. Now the studio is providing a patch so it’s an even better experience on the PS5. This update is completely free and is arriving for PS5 owners on February 2. With this update, God of War runs at 4K 60 FPS on PS5, using checkerboard rendering.

If for some reason you want to play it with the older settings, you’ll still have that ability by going to the options and selecting Original Performance Experience. God of War is part of the PlayStation Plus Collection of games, so if you haven’t played it yet, this is the perfect time to do so.

A new God of War is one of the games currently slated to arrive on the PS5 later in 2021. It doesn’t have an official title or release date though. Other upcoming PlayStation exclusives throughout 2021 include Horizon Forbidden West and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Part.

Is Google shutting down Stadia?

Best answer: No. At the time of this writing Google is not shutting down the Stadia platform. It is, however, closing its internal development and publishing studios that were working on exclusive first-party Stadia games to instead focus efforts on third-party deals and supporting the platform as a whole.

So, Google isn’t shutting down Stadia?

No, on Feb. 1, 2021 Google announced that it’s closing its internal Stadia development studios that were working on exclusive Stadia projects, not that it was shutting down Stadia as a whole. This means the platform will continue to exist as it does today, but in the future, Google is focusing on third-party projects and supporting the Stadia platform rather than investing resources into developing exclusive first-party games.

Will new games continue to release on Stadia?

As of right now there is no reason to assume new games will stop releasing on Stadia. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of the best Stadia games were third-party releases and most of the first-party content has been subpar so far. According to today’s statement, Google is committed to continuing Stadia. We don’t personally think it’s in trouble just yet.

What happens to my game data if Stadia shuts down?

Right now, Google allows you to download all of your Stadia player profile information, game history, achievements, game stats, social data, captures, and game saves using Google Takeout. If Stadia shuts down completely, you will likely lose access to all of that and all of your games, but you should get a warning to give you time to grab your data.

Just because you can download this data doesn’t mean you’ll be able to access your game save on another platform. Some publishers, such as Ubisoft, support cross-saves between consoles, but most don’t. Division 2 and Elder Scrolls Online have cross-saves between Stadia and PC, for example, but in all cases you’d need to rebuy the game on another platform before you can access any save data.

What happens to my games if Stadia shuts down?

In all likelihood you will lose all access to your games if Stadia shuts down. There is no option to download a game from Stadia to play it locally since it’s a cloud-based gaming platform, and, technically speaking, you don’t actually own any of the games on the service.

Back in the summer of 2019 before Stadia launched, Andrey Doronichev, director of product for Stadia, gave a very carefully-worded non-answer to this same question during a Reddit AMA. The gist of it is that Google doesn’t want you to worry because lots of stuff is in the cloud these days. The closest he gets to an actual answer is, “the games you buy on Stadia are yours to play,” which is a fancy way of saying nothing.

There is no explicit confirmation at this time, but if the day comes that Google does actually shut down Stadia completely then you will likely lose all access to your games on Stadia, including the ones you’ve purchased outright.

The LG Velvet finally starts receiving stable Android 11 update

Owners of the LG Velvet can rejoice as the stable build for Android 11 has finally begun to roll out to devices in Korea, which means a U.S. rollout shouldn’t be too far behind. The update began appearing over the weekend, and there’s no apparent changelog included with the update, but it’s expected to carry all of the goodies that come with Android 11 such as Chat Bubbles, improved security, and more.

The update is based on LG UX 10, up from UX 9 on previous devices like the LG Wing. That means there’s likely to be some visual changes to the UI, although those haven’t been identified. The size of the update comes it at around 2.2GB.

In December, the LG Velvet became the first and only LG smartphone to receive the Android 11 beta in Korea, which included a number of improvements and additions. According to LG, this is is the only device scheduled to receive Android 11 this quarter. With any luck, the company will push updates for more of the best LG phones like the LG Wing and V60 ThinQ by next quarter, as they are the only two flagship LG smartphones released last year.

VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 & more

LG is expected to announce at least two more premium flagship smartphones this year, a traditional flagship that is likely to be a successor to the LG V60, and the LG Rollable smartphone that was teased at CES. The fate of either and/or both devices is unknown as they may face delays in the wake of the company’s alleged sale of its smartphone division.
