The gaming crowd is now upon us at the end of 2020, meaning that the gaming release schedule is now really warming up before the busy holiday period. A major competitor has arrived from Amazon in September 2020 and so far Stadia has received more incremental updates and improvements, while the more important game has also hit the service!
About Stadia ‘Save the State’: This is our overview of all updates, upgrades, and potential pitfalls for Google’s game streaming platform over the past month. We also decompose the latest versions of the Stadia application and dig into the code to better understand where Stadia is. Expect opinions, information, and speculation on Google Stadia, games, and everything in between.
September new release
Another month has passed, which means another set of new Stadia titles to begin streaming. The “new” game saw a slight decrease last month, but now we’re hitting the usual late-fall crowd just before the busy holiday gaming season. So as frustrating as it is – and it now seems customary – we’ve seen another wave of re-runs and re-releases of classic and old titles on Stadia by September 2020.
Creed Indie Gaming hit Hotline Miami and it’s a sequel to Terror 2D Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has changed its way to Stadia, allowing you to “jacket” through the Russian mafia as the silent protagonist. Can be switched off.
Sting on your friends in basketball sim NBA2K21, who have joined the fellow 2K Sports PGA Tour on the cloud gaming platform. Oddly, while it is “21” – to denote the current season – it is actually the 22nd title in the 2K basketball franchise.
After what seems like a long wait, September 2020 saw a Stadia release, which allows comic book fans to step into the shoes of Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, and Thor. The most entertaining comic book tie-ins ever.
République started life on the iOS path in 2013, but has since broken Apple’s mobile OS chains and found itself on multiple platforms, including now Stadia. The Stealth game draws inspiration from classic titles such as Metal Gear Solid with some neat twists on the old formula.
Real “wrastlin” fans can also enjoy the over-the-top action of the WWE 2K Battleground, a caricature-style comeback of Brawler games. You can catch your way through the current WWE roster with some notable Hall of Famers including “Rattlesnake” Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, The Rock, Plus and more.
Those titles also join us in the fourth in the Serious Sam franchise, which sees you shooting your way through hordes of aliens and animals to save planet Earth. The final new additional classic card game for September 2020 is Uno.
In total, a fair eight new titles arrived at Stadia in September 2020, including:

Google Stadia: New features added in September 2020
IOS Support Type (s)
If you’ve been tracking Stadia fans for the past few weeks, then you might know that iOS 14 makes it possible to run Stadia through an iOS web browser. It is actually possible to play games on the iPhone or iPad, by tricking the user agent and visiting Stadia’s web app. It’s just … well, it’s a pain in the butt.
You can run Stadia on iOS using a modified web browser, but it can’t recognize the controller you’re using so you’ll have to use something nous to use the gamepad of your choice.
Safari support for Google Stadia controller in beta
Even though Apple is still digging in its heels to allow game streaming on iOS, it still added support for Google Stadia Controller with Safari in beta just before the September 2020 shutdown . This may prompt Google to bring Stadia to the web as an iOS application, but for now, it only applies to the desktop version of Safari.
Portrait mode sign-in removed from Stadia on Android TV
Although a dedicated Stadia Android TV app is still missing, the latest version 2.32 build has now removed portrait sign-ins forcing you to sideload the app to your porting box. This makes the sign-in process slightly shorter and more consistent with your TV UI.
As is customary, you can count on us to spend some serious time dive deep into the Google Stadia Android app. It would not be appropriate to keep our findings to ourselves, especially when we are bringing the upcoming and experimental features to the stage soon. Google Stadia has the biggest upcoming or most notable additions that we found in September 2020:
UPlay + Integration
With the release of 2.32 Stadia, Google has officially introduced Finishing Touch, as well as UPlay +, an improved recruitment system, and more to send messages to launch. To be clear, UPlay + has not been added to the Stadia store until September 2020. It seems that this will come in the form of a new category of games in front of the online store, which is not even in the very distant future.
Stadia Community Forum
The Stadia Community Forum is a hotbed of official Stadia news, but this month, Google is linking a detailed account on the online community. When enabled, you will be able to link your account and Stadia Founders will receive a special badge with additional “Founders Hub” exclusive Q & As Plus.
