Google Stadia set to launch in November with £119 Founder’s Edition

Google has announced details of its upcoming Google Stadia service as promised, revealing an initial launch aimed at November and 30 titles that will be coming to the service on launch.

If you want in on day one, you'll be wanting to pick up the Founder's Edition. This will cost you £119 and include a Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition controller in Midnight Blue and two subscriptions to what's being called Stadia Pro – one for you, and one for a friend.

Stadia Pro will be a subscription service, priced at £8.99 a month, which will include access to a selection of to-be-announced games and will let you stream them at 4K resolution at 60fps and surround sound if you have the bandwidth to do so, which Google claim will be around 35mb per second. A Pro subscription will also, at launch, allow you access to 'Destiny 2: The Collection' which will consist of the game and all its add-ons, including the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion. If you don't want Stadia Pro, a free Stadia Base service is promised to arrive in 2020 at a maximum of 1080p resolution.
