Stadia Savepoint: March updates

It’s time for another update to our Stadia Savepoint series, recapping the new games, features and changes for Stadia.

In March, players took to the pitch in FIFA 21 and explored an open-world of a bizarre, over-the-top city in Saints Row: The Third Remastered. They raced high-octane cars in DIRT 5 and started their journey as a legendary hero in Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition. In addition to these March games available now on the Stadia store, subscribers to Stadia Pro played new titles like PixelJunk Raiders, AVICII Invector, PAC-MAN Mega Tunnel Battle and Reigns — all on top of their existing library of Pro games.

State Share, the platform feature that’s only possible on Stadia, is now available in PixelJunk Raiders and gives players the ability to share gameplay clips and screenshots that create portals for friends to play their procedurally-generated levels. Available Only on Stadia, PixelJunk Raiders is an action adventure rogue-like that uses State Share in a unique way, allowing you to add new items and weapons to the levels that you share, changing future playthroughs for other players.

Stadia Savepoint: January and February updates

It’s time for another update to our Stadia Savepoint series, recapping the new games, features and changes for Stadia.

So far in 2021, players have traveled the world over in the spy thriller HITMAN 3, and they’ve gone long for touchdown passes in Madden NFL 21. They’ve brawled in 16-bit action in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World™: The Game, and they’ve discovered the dark secrets of an ominous world in Little Nightmares II, available now in Stadia Pro. Subscribers to Stadia Pro also gained instant access to play new games like Hotline Miami, Figment and Enter the Gungeon on top of the existing library of Pro games available to play as soon as you sign up.

State Share launched in January — the newest platform feature available only on Stadia — and it lets you capture playable slices of supported games and share them with friends. It's as simple as taking a capture in-game and a game state will be automatically attached. Share the state via link to give friends the chance to try the same mission or custom level, beat your high score or experience new in-game content. Try it now across the entire HITMAN - World of Assassination trilogy as well as PixelJunk Raiders (play for free in Stadia Pro). State Share will be coming to more games soon.

Hitman 3 - Now available for purchase on the Stadia store.

Play a custom game state in HITMAN 3 with State Share by clicking here to play on Stadia. You’ll need to own HITMAN 3 to use this link.

If you haven’t already, try free games like February’s new Crayta: Starter Edition, which allows everyone on Stadia to create games, share them with friends and play community creations at the click of a link. Other free games on Stadia include Destiny 2 and Super Bomberman R Online!

More than 100 games are coming to the Stadia store in 2021, including FIFA 21 (March 17), Kaze and the Wild Masks (March 26), Outriders (April 1) and Judgment (April 23). We’re also looking forward to jumping into Far Cry 6, Riders Republic and First on Stadia games like Hello Engineer.
