Google announced 16 new titles coming to Stadia, the tech company’s game streaming service, including FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a new battle royale-style Bomberman game, and an exclusive from developer Splash Damage called Outcasters.

Outcasters, described as a “vibrant and accessible competitive online multiplayer game​ set in a distinctly stylised vinyl world,” joins Orcs Must Die! 3 as a Stadia exclusive. Three more exclusive games are coming to Stadia from Rock Band developer Harmonix, Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games, and Submerged developer Uppercut Games.

Konami will bring Super Bomberman R Online, a battle royale take on the multiplayer series, first to Stadia. The online game will support up to 64 players and feature Stadia’s Crowd Play feature. Super Bomberman R Online is based on Super Bomberman R, which was released for Nintendo Switch in 2017.

The addition of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be a true test of Stadia’s latency promises, given that game’s near frame-perfect tolerances during intense boss battles.

The following games were also confirmed for Google Stadia:

  • One Hand Clapping
  • Dead by Daylight
  • Hitman, Hitman 2, and Hitman 3
  • Serious Sam 4
  • Outriders
  • WWE 2K Battlegrounds
  • PGA Tour 2K21
  • NBA 2K21
  • Hello Neighbor and Hello Neighbor: Hide & Seek
