Google has taken to the airwaves to talk all things Stadia, its upcoming cloud-based gaming service. We've got all the details including release date, countries for release, pricing, included games and much more.

This is the first in a series of Stadia Connect videos that will be published from time to time over the course of the coming months.

The goal is to make gaming more accessible for everyone. No downloads. No patches. No installs. It's a huge shift in the gaming world. Google's datacenter is the platform. No console is required to play your favorite games.

Larian Studios is bringing Baldur's Gate 3 to Stadia. 

Stadia is set up to provide the fastest possible response. Highest quality gaming experience is 4K HDR 60 FPS at 35Mbps. "We handle the backend so you can play the games you want, where you want."

Stadia Controller is designed for streaming games with a button to screen cap. Mouse and keyboard and other controllers are compatible as well. Chrome Connect and any screen that runs Chrome will work with Stadia.
