Google announced today more details on its game-streaming service Stadia. The company first launched the service in March and is announcing some more details ahead of E3 today.

Google's Stadia will become available in November with an entry price of $129.99 for the Founders Edition package (pre-order on Google's Stadia site), which includes a game controller, Chromecast Ultra streaming device and a three-month subscription. This will be the only way to access Stadia until the service goes wider sometime next year. Initially the service will be available in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the UK, and the US, with plans to expand to more countries in 2020.

As for the games, Google plans to have 31 titles from 21 different publishers available in the service's launch window, a period that Stadia director of games Jack Buser says includes a period of "a few months" thereafter. Those titles consist largely of already-released games, though a few new ones appear as well, among them Larian Studio's Baldur's Gate 3. Two of them, Tequila Works' surreal adventure game Gylt and Coatsink's co-op top-down action-puzzler Get Packed, will be exclusive to Stadia, though there's nothing confirmed yet coming from Stadia Games and Entertainment, the first-party studio headed up by games veteran Jade Raymond.

Google says this isn't the entire list of games, either, with more set to be announced next week during E3 and in the run-up to the November launch.
