We could soon be able to pre-order games on Google Stadia
Currently, the only game you can pre-order on Stadia is Destiny 2: Beyond Light, however, it seems that we could soon see more games up for pre-order.
Now when it comes to pre-orders, as we see with PS4 and Xbox, pre-orders give you access to download the game a few days early so when it launches you can play it straight away. So we can see why Google probably didn’t think they needed pre-orders as you can play games instantly on Google Stadia.
However, the main attraction when it comes to pre-orders is with certain games, if you pre-order you either get bonus in-game content or early access to the game.
We have seen this with windbound, which is due to release on Google Stadia on Friday, however, on other platforms it has been available to pre-order and if you pre-order windbound you get access to bonus in-game content. Now luckily Deepsilver is still allowing Google Stadia players a chance to get the bonus in-game content if they buy the game before September 11th.
Now while Destiny 2: Beyond Light is currently the only game you can pre-order, it seems we will also see Marvels Avengers receive a pre-order on the 1st September, which will allow early access to the game before it fully releases on 4th September.
So looking at all this pre-orders is something that is needed for any platform, well it looks like Google has realised this and will soon be allowing more pre-orders, according to GemStadia’s findings.
Who managed to find two recently added store pages, which if you go to currently take you to pre-order and pre-order now, now both of these store pages are empty, so there is no hint as to when we will see pre-orders come to Stadia, but at least we know Google is working on it.
