Google Stadia Gets Three New Games Soon

Written by on | OpenCritic

Games discussed: , Republique Remastered, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom

Google promised 120 new games on Stadia in 2020, and to that end, three new games have been announced as coming soon. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, Republique, and West of Loathing are all on their way. 

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom released on Xbox One, PS4, and Switch on December 4, 2018 and received rave reviews from 55 critics on OpenCritic. Today it averages an 86, giving it "Mighty" distinction. It's described as a "colorful, side-scrolling action adventure" set in the Wonder Boy universe. 

Republique comes from the team at Camouflaj, currently finishing Iron Man VR for PlayStation VR. The stealth-adventure game first released in 2013 though was quickly remastered for PC and PS4 in 2015 and 2016 respectively. It earned "Fair" scores, averaging a 73 from 45 critics, but it's been quite polarizing, with just over half (52%) of critics recommending the game for play.

West of Loathing is an turn-based RPG from Asymmetric Studio. With a stick figure art style, it tells the story of The Day the Cows Came Home, which turned all the town's cattle demonic. As a Snake Oiler, you can talk your way out of situations or fight through them in a story that is meant to humor you with slapstick comedy. It's another "Mighty" release, averaging an OpenCritic 85 from 32 critics. 

Release dates for these three new games have not been been announced. In case you missed it, Google Stadia Pro is free for the next two months. Google is running the promotion as a means of combating the widespread stay at home orders seen throughout the world right now amid the ongoing pandemic. Players who sign up during the free trial will instantly be given access to recent Pro titles, like Destiny 2 and the exclusive Gylt.
