Stadia News: New Ubisoft F2P FPS Coming, Cris Tale Arrives + More.

As ever it's been a busy week in Stadia land. Tom Clancy's XDefiant will be arriving on the platform upon release. Road 96 is no longer coming to the platform, unfortunately. The brand new Cris Tales is available now as is ONE PIECE: World Seeker.

Cris Tales - Available Now

Cris Tales is a gorgeous, indie love letter to classic JRPGs with a new perspective. Peer into the past, act in the present, and watch as your choices dynamically change the future - all on one screen as you play! Beautifully hand-drawn 2D animations bring to life a world where your choices will change both the present and the future across more than 20 hours of gameplay.

Criss Tales is priced at $39.99/£34.99 and available in the Stadia Store.

ONE PIECE: World Seeker - Available Now

Leave your compass behind and join Luffy as he embarks on a brand new action-packed adventure where you can experience the powers of the legendary Gum-Gum fruit to uncover hidden secrets on an original, never-before-seen island! Time to set sail!

Take control of Monkey D. Luffy and explore the vast areas of this all-new island as you try to uncover its hidden secrets.

ONE PIECE: World Seeker is priced at £15/$20 and is available in the Stadia Store.

Tom Clancy's XDefiant - Coming Soon

Yesterday Ubisoft announced their brand new free-to-play first-person shooter, Tom Clancy's XDefiant. The good news is it will be coming to Stadia on release. Unfortunately, right now we don't have a specific date.

You can register for potential beta testing but unfortunately, no cloud platforms are available it will have to be tested locally right now.

Personalized Playstyle

Personalize your Defiant to match your playstyle. Choose your faction, traits, abilities, and ultras. Select from an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and a device to complete your loadout – then tweak it on the fly to adapt to an ever-changing battlefield.

Competitive Clashes

Tom Clancy’s XDefiant offers a variety of competitive 6v6 arena and linear game modes, such as Domination and Escort. Combine that with a large pool of uniquely designed maps in rotation and no two matches will feel the same.

Diverse Factions of Defiants

Wolves, Outcasts, Cleaners, and Echelon factions battling across iconic locations is just the starting point. We’ll keep adding to our cast of Defiants as the game evolves, drawing on a range of characters and abilities from the Clancy universe and beyond.

Road 96 Diverts Off Stadia Avenue

Thanks to our friends over at Stadia Source we can tell you that Road 96 is no longer coming to Stadia.

The release date was revealed minus confirmation of the game coming to the platform and the CEO of DigixArt, who are developing the game had this to say:

We did some tests on Stadia last year, and this technology is wonderful, the game ran really smoothly on it, if we have the resources and time we would be happy to release that version of Road 96 in the future.
As a studio of 15 people, it's really hard to make several platforms at the same time.

Road 96 is an interesting game for sure and we hope to see it arrive soon.
