Following the AAA launch of Far Cry 6 last week, Stadia had a quiet few days. But now Stadia has gained a new bulk edit feature for deleting screen captures and the release date for two new games.
Stadia Changelog is a weekly series on 9to5Google where we round up some of the Stadia news that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to talk about. This includes a roundup of which new games were released on Stadia during the week, which games saw updates and patches, new games either confirmed or speculated for the platform, and more. Come back every Friday, and don’t forget to check out Bandwidth, our weekly look at the rest of the cloud gaming world, including GeForce Now, Luna, and more.
New games on Stadia
No new games were released on Stadia this week. Google has added 84 games to Stadia since the start of this year with 11 weeks left to meet its promise of at least 100 titles added during calendar year 2021.
Games coming to Stadia
Originally scheduled to release today, Google confirmed that Ben 10: Power Trip would be delayed to a release on October 21. When it debuts, the game will cost $29.99.
One new game is coming to Stadia next week, too. Heist Simulator this week confirmed its release date of October 19 on Stadia in early access.
You can now bulk delete Stadia captures
Announced on the official Stadia subreddit, the platform finally now supports the ability to bulk delete captures. This functionality is, for now, limited only to the web client, but allows Stadia players to much more easily delete captures. Previously, the only way to clear out the limited library of screenshots and clips was to delete every Stadia capture one by one, which is a very tedious project if the library has grown.
We hope you’re enjoying the Capture feature to record your favorite moments on Stadia. We understand how frustrating it can get when you’re navigating through all those screenshots and clips. With that being said, we’re excited to announce the rollout of a bulk delete feature on web. This feature will allow you to easily remove Captures that are no longer needed so that you can take and keep meaningful captures.
Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost
Destiny 2 announced a new holiday event including community-chosen #TeamDino armor sets.
The roar of #TeamDino heralds the start of the Festival of the Lost today! Dress your dino best while you hunt for the new Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle, new masks, and a crypt’s worth of spooktacular cosmetics. Brave new tales of terror in the Haunted Sector activity and complete the new Book of the Forgotten.
