Google’s game streaming platform, Stadia, will launch on Nov. 19, and early adopters will get access to 12 games on launch day. Stadia’s launch lineup will include one platform exclusive — surreal fantasy adventure Gylt from Tequila Works — and the recently released Windows PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.

But the launch games for Stadia consists mainly of older PC games, including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Destiny 2, and three Tomb Raider titles. Here’s the day-one Stadia game lineup, from Google:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

  • Gylt
  • Just Dance 2020

  • Samurai Shodown
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
  • Thumper
  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

Google also confirmed 14 additional titles coming to Stadia by the end of 2019. Here’s what else early adopters can expect this year (minus, of course, Doom Eternal, which was previously expected at Stadia’s launch but was recently delayed to March 2020):

  • Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
  • Borderlands 3
  • Darksiders Genesis

Stadia will be available in 14 countries at launch. The Stadia Founder’s Edition will include a Chromecast Ultra, which supports 4K gameplay; a limited-edition “midnight blue” controller; a three-month Stadia Pro subscription, plus one voucher to give the same subscription to a friend; and the ability to reserve a Stadia username early, which is tied to the user’s Google account. The Founder’s Edition will launch in United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. It retails for $129.99 in the United States.
