How will Google Stadia open world games change the way we play?
One of the main benefits of Google Stadia is its ability to play high quality, ultra HDR, 60 frames per second games on even a fairly limited internet connection. It is for this reason that one of the things that we, as a Google Stadia community, are most looking forward to is seeing how Google Stadia open world games will perform.
What Are Google Stadia Open World Games?
When it comes to gaming, one of the most revolutionary models for games has been the open world model. The open world model makes it possible for gamers to explore the game world at will, without the limitations that otherwise more limited and structured game play models used to offer.While some traditional platform games have stood the test of time—such as the much loved Super Mario franchise—on the whole, gaming has shifted towards a more open world model in almost every scenario.
The first example of the open world game model being played was in May 1986 with the release of the open world game, Turbo Esprit, which was a vehicular combat based game that was playable across four cities at the player’s discretion. This freedom, which had previously been unseen in gaming, made Turbo Esprit a truly revolutionary title. However, with it being played on the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64, there isn’t much chance we’ll be seeing this piece of history on Google Stadia!
Which Google Stadia Open World Games Will Be Available?
Regardless of the fact that traditional examples won’t be available as one of the Google Stadia open world games, it is now guaranteed that Turbo Esprit’s legacy will live on in the form of a number of Google Stadia open world games. The majority of these titles will be announced in the coming months, but there is one game that we have been able to guarantee with certainty. In fact, it’s a game which we’ve known about since Google Stadia’s first announcement at the GDC in March: Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
Other Google Stadia open world games that we are particularly looking forward to include Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto (GTA), Fallout, Fortnite, and Watch Dogs, to name just a few.
