Google has made a few changes to the FAQs of its cloud-based gaming service, Stadia by adding some new information and features. Now, you won’t lose access to your games on Google Stadia even if its publisher decides to exit the platform.
“Once you purchase the game, you own the right to play it. In the future, it is possible that some games may no longer be available for new purchases, but existing players will still be able to play the game,” the Stadia FAQ page reads. “Outside of unforeseen circumstances, Stadia will aim to keep any previously purchased title available for gameplay.”
Stadia will only support mobile gameplay on a limited number of devices at launch, namely the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a (3a, 3a XL, 3, 3XL) phones, as well as tablets running Chrome OS. Google further says it’s presently working on compatibility for more devices the FAQ says that the company doesn’t have any news to share regarding VR support on the platform yet and you can buy games from any iOS 11+ or Android M+ device that can run the Stadia app.
The company has now further clarified that the account you sign up for Stadia doesn’t necessarily have to be the address you use. The service will merely send a Stadia redemption code to the Google account you use to sign up, but you can redeem that code using a different email address. That makes it easy to buy codes as gifts for friends and family if you’re feeling lonely and want to try out the platform’s multiplayer titles.
