Renamed Project Stream after many months of the devil, this new streaming platform allows you to access your video games from any connected device (computer, tablet, smartphone, or TV). Stadia-compatible games do not run on game consoles, but on Google servers.
The stadia has innovative features like the ability to play the part of a streamers from Youtube (Crowd Play). Stadia also offers state share, a feature that allows you to share your backup with your friends
THE TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STADIA.
Google promises to introduce its service a 4K definition up to 60 FPS with the support of HDR. Finally, Google hopes to stream 8K at 120 FPS. It is important that the quality of the connection depends mainly on the bandwidth. Google also points out that a traditional broadband connection is sufficient to access the service.
Regarding the server infrastructure, Google announces that the GPUs used have been developed in partnership with AMD and can generate up to 10.7 teraflops of power. Mountain View compared this data with the performance of the PS4 Pro (4.2 teraflops) and the Xbox One X (6 teraflops). The servers of the stadiums are equipped with 16 GB of RAM and an L2 + L3 cache of 9.5 MB.
Finally, Google also presented the Stadia Controller, a W-iFi controller with Google Assistant. The Stadia controller has a button that makes it easy to record, record and share immediately.
BUILDING A CITY OFFICE AND PARTNERSHIPS
Google also announced the creation of its first video game development studio.Stadia Games and Entertainment will therefore offer exclusive games for Stadia.This new division will be led by Jade Raymond, a Canadian video game maker.
The California company is also working with new partners for this service and has signed contracts with solution providers for development studios. Industry leaders such as Unreal Engine, Unity, Havok or CryEngine are of course part of the team.
A FEW MORE GRAY AREAS
During the conference, Google did not mention any other points that are very important:
The release date of Stadia
The stadium will officially open in 2019 in the United States, the United Kingdom and selected European countries. France could be a part of it, but that has not been confirmed yet. An exact date has not been announced, but it is expected to be published in the second half of the year.
Google announced that Stadia would be compatible with some smartphones and tablets, Android TVs and computers. However, the company has not indicated if Stadia will be available on iOS or tvOS. The same is true for smart TVs that are not running on Android.
The price of the stadium
Google has not informed at all about the business model of its cloud gaming service. Are the games sold individually? It is also unknown whether the service is accessible via a monthly or annual subscription. We will know more in the next few weeks.
Advantages for Google Stadia For Pc , Mobile, tablet
Google uses its advantages in browsers, video sites, and back-end technologies to give Stadia an unprecedented feature experience.
- The first demonstration is a multi-screen seamless switching function, the game screen can be smoothly switched between mobile phones, computers, TVs, tablets, regardless of the use of Google’s control handles developed specifically for Stadia or the PS4, Xbox One handles that are already in the hands of users or Keyboard and mouse, Google claims to be able to achieve a seamless seamless cut
- The second is to open up the gap between the game live player and the game. Players can participate in the game at any time during the live broadcast of the game through Chrome. For example, the live demonstration is a game of “NBA2K” series, when the Stadia user is playing in the level. With a simple click, you can enter the next game of NBA2K directly on the browser page, becoming the actual controller instead of the viewer.
- The third is to create an sharing experience that is unprecedented. The previous game content sharing only stayed at the level of screenshots and videos, but if the player shared a game progress through Stadia, such as getting a high score in the time-limited challenge, then the player clicking the share link can immediately enter the level to continue the challenge or It is a challenge to your friends, this is another dimension of sharing experience.
- Fourth, the use of the server group or platform as a feature architecture can achieve an unprecedented multiplayer gaming experience. For example, the current tactical action game (BRG) usually only supports about 100 players, but in Google’s vision. Stadia has the ability to support more than 1,000 people to “eat chickens” at the same time, and because of the abandonment of localized data, all calculations are done in the cloud, so it can completely shield cheating and plug-ins.
With powerful server-side features, players can also instantly influence the content of the game. For example, a robot running scene that was previously demonstrated, the player can arbitrarily choose the material style that is reflected in the scene, and then the server automatically generates a brand new one. The scenario, which is impossible in the traditional local client game era.
In the process of playing the game, it is inevitable to encounter the card off. According to the past habits, the player needs to open the phone or switch to the desktop search strategy or video to help them crack the difficulty, but after Stadia combines the Google assistant function, the player only needs to be in the game process. In the middle of the call out of the Google assistant to ask the puzzle, the best answer from the system search will be automatically reflected in the game, such as turning to the puzzle mechanism and so on.
In addition, the way to get the game has changed revolutionarily. No special application or page is needed. You can see the game introduction or screen anywhere on the Chrome browser, and it may become the entrance to the game.
