Stadia Savepoint: October updates

A blue image shows a top-down perspective of a person's hands holding a white controller while sitting on a blue bed and playing Stadia games on a silver laptop.

It’s time for another round of our Stadia Savepoint series, recapping the new games, features and updates on Stadia.

In October, Stadia Pro subscribers claimed and played the more than 30 games in our growing library of titles. That included newly-added Pro games like Hello Engineer, which is available First on Stadia with State Share support, plus DreamWorks Spirit Lucky’s Big Adventure, Cake Bash, Mafia III Definitive Edition and Control Ultimate Edition. On top of that, Pro subscribers had access to Free Play Days for Borderlands 3 and Dead by Daylight.

New games on the Stadia store teleported players to a massive, open-world multiplayer sports playground in Riders Republic, while others trained to become the most powerful fighters in the universe in DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT. Stadia players were also the first to take on Anton Castillo’s regime in the action adventure game Far Cry 6, playable instantly at launch with no downloads.

October also marked more than 25 games on Stadia that support platform features like State Share, Stream Connect, Crowd Play and Crowd Choice. With State Share added to DOOM Eternal’s Horde Mode, Crowd Play in Serious Sam 4, permanent Stadia store categories, and new Help Center articles, there are more resources than ever to help you change the way you play your favorite Stadia games.

October also brought new Stadia features for players:

Direct touch support on iOS

Interact directly with a game using your iOS phone’s touch screen by tapping, sliding and pinching with your fingers — now available within HUMANKIND on Android and iOS.

The HUMANKIND direct touch menu shows instructions and diagrams entitled "Tap" "Drag" and "Hold".

Public parties

Public parties provide a new way to find and connect with users who want to play the same games as you.

A sequence of three images shows the Stadia UI with orange highlighted instructions for creating public parties, with lists of games to choose from and join.

Parties and voice chat on Android

Communicate with friends in parties on Android over both voice and game chat.

Bulk Capture deletion on web

Remove multiple Captures at a time with ease, making more room for your favorite game states, video clips and screenshots.
