Cloudy with a Chance of Games

In a mid-week blog post, Stadia announced that sometime in the summer, Control will arrive on the platform and Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is dropping on June 22nd.

Let’s have a look at exactly what they’re all about.

In another outing for SEGA to Stadia, this time we see the Olympics take the stage front and centre.

Control

Control is certainly the bigger of the two games and I think most in the community will be caught between surprise that it’s actually coming to Stadia or feeling like it was only a matter of time. Regardless of where you sit on this, it’s an absolutely top-notch game launching on the platform. Not only is it launching but it’s the Ultimate Edition!

Winner of over 80 awards, Control is a visually stunning third-person action-adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Blending open-ended environments with the signature world-building and storytelling of renowned developer Remedy Entertainment, the game presents an expansive and intensely gratifying experience. Control Ultimate Edition features the main game and all previously released expansions (“The Foundation” and “AWE”) in one incredible package.

Features:

  • Uncover The Mysteries – Unfold an epic supernatural struggle filled with unexpected characters and bizarre events as you search for your missing brother and discover the truth that has brought you here.
  • Everything Is Your Weapon – Unleash destruction through transforming weaponry and telekinetic powers.
  • Explore a Hidden World – Delve into the ominous expanses of a secretive government agency. Explore the Bureau’s shifting environments only to discover that there is always more than meets the eye…
  • Fight For Control – Battle a relentless enemy through exciting missions and challenging boss fights to earn powerful upgrades that maximise your abilities and customise your weaponry.
  • Complete Control Experience – Once you’ve uncovered the secrets hidden within the main storyline, it is time to explore further with “The Foundation” and “AWE” expansions included in Control Ultimate Edition.

It has to be said that this is a great mid-week blog post and it’s excellent to see two new titles joining the line-up. Pro Games yesterday and two new games today, it’s shaping up to be a solid week of announcements from the Stadia team.

My first gaming experience was on a ZX spectrum, from there I've gone through every Nintendo system, Playstation , Xbox up until the last generation of the consoles and of course PC. I finally seen the light earlier in 2020 and made the move to Cloud Gaming and quite genuinely it was the best thing I've ever done. The future of gaming is here and with my deep passion for gaming I can't wait to experience where it's going.
