Marvel’s Avengers get ahead on Google Stadia
Since the service launch, it has been said that one of the things that Google Stadia needs is a game catalog. Because at the technology level, Google’s streaming game proposal has proven to work very well on any of the compatible devices so far. But all that is useless if, in addition to the prices that are equal to what the physical editions for consoles cost, there are no games that really interest users.
Now we are not going to tell you that the batteries have been put in and out of the blue they have doubled the number of games available, but they have played the card well early access. And it is that perhaps for the impatient and for those who do not have a console, but want to enjoy triple AAA games, this is a good way to attract attention and encourage more than one to bet on the service rather than on classic options. Because from now on you can buy the special version of the latest Avengers title.
If you access Google Stadia you will see that you can already do with Marvel’s Avengers: Deluxe Edition. And that will give you the option to play two days before the rest. Because the official launch of the game developed by Cristal Dynamics together with Square Enix goes on sale next September 4.
Is Deluxe Edition of The Avengers has a cost of 89.99 euros and includes a series of extras compared to the normal version that will cost 69.99 euros. For that price difference, you get a pack of classic Marvel outfits, an exclusive nameplate for Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk and Ms. Marvel, as well as six others for more aesthetic customizations of the characters. .
Stadia vs gaming on consoles
At this point, you may be wondering who would pay the same to play via streaming than to do it on a traditional console such as the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One and their experience is identical. Well let’s see, everything will depend a little on each one, but the truth is that there are reasons to do so.
It is true that the first thing we will have to do is change the way of thinking about the value of a game that is accessed digitally compared to a physical one. Although here it is true that with digital purchases there is always the debate about to what extent it is ours and not a “rental” prolonged in time while the service is active.
The second thing is to think that the great advantage of Stadia and the like is that they allow you to play it wherever you go just by having an internet connection. That is interesting, because a simple compatible Android phone or a Google Chromecast already allows you to access the service and its entire catalog of games. And it is likely that many users will have access to one of these before a console.
Therefore, it is not about competing but about giving the user other options and after seeing some gameplay the difference if it exists in terms of performance is minimal. So, if you don’t have a console or a powerful PC and you want to enjoy The Avengers, this is it. a great opportunity to do it in 4K at 60fps and also before the rest of your friends.
