Stadia game updates
Watch Dogs: Legion goes online
A major update to Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs: Legion rolled out this week to deliver online multiplayer to the game. While reception has been mixed, it’s definitely a welcome feature for many players, and notably it’s not available yet on PC, only consoles and Stadia.
PixelJunk Raiders gets inverted controls
Stadia’s latest exclusive, PixelJunk Raiders, is getting its first update this week. Available today, March 12, the update most notably adds the ability to invert both X and Y axis controls through the settings. Beyond that, it also fixes an issue that saw players lose their loadout inventory when mission data was interrupted. The update is available for all players now.
Crayta Alien Conspiracy Battle Pass has arrived
Available this week, the first Battle Pass for Crayta, Alien Conspiracy, has arrived. It brings with it the two new packs mentioned previously as well as a host of new cosmetic items. Like Battle Passes in other games, Alien Conspiracy in Crayta sees players ranking up through 100 levels to unlock items and gain XP. Notably, a lot of the items are ones used in game creation. You can buy the Battle Pass on its own for $9.99 if you already bought the game.
Immortals Fenyx Rising v1.1.2
Good news for fans of Ubisoft’s mythic adventure game — Immortals Fenyx Rising picked up Title Update 1.1.2 this week and it’s rolled out to Stadia. There are no Stadia-specific fixes listed in the official changelog, but highlights include support for the upcoming “Myths of the Eastern Realm” expansion as well as a new option to toggle the “double press dodge.”
Games coming to Stadia
Google wasn’t shy about announcing new games for Stadia this week. The company confirmed the launch of Terraria is set for March 18, a day after FIFA 21 makes its debut. Beyond that, Blue Fire and Trine 4 were both also confirmed for Stadia without firm dates attached.
