Google is holding its Stadia Connect event tonight at 9:30 pm IST. It, however, seems like some information got leaked prior to the event. According to ESRB’s official website, one of the world’s largest games at the moment, PUBG, is coming to Stadia.
ESRB or Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated PUBG, along with another game, Switch favorite, Octopath Traveler. Click here to learn more about Octopath Traveler. While a PC rating was just fine for PUBG, it seems ESRB is rating games for Stadia separately.
PUBG has been rated T for Teen with Blood and Violence. Interestingly, the rating page says, “Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB (Stadia)”. Here’s the summary from the ESRB page –
This is a multiplayer action game in which players can participate in “last-man-standing”-style shootouts while collecting supplies/weapons/armor around an island. From a third-person perspective, players parachute onto an island and search for items, vehicles, and supplies that they must defend from other players; characters can engage in fistfights, and use weapons (e.g., machine guns, rifles) to shoot and kill opponents. Successful hits are accompanied by brief splashes of blood; characters fall to the ground when killed, as their items become available to other players. Players can also use vehicles (e.g., motorcycles, trucks) to run over opponents.
PUBG or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is already available on all major platforms – PC, PS4, Xbox One, Android, and iPhone. Now, it’s making its way towards Stadia, Google’s game streaming service.
We’ll learn more about PUBG on Stadia tonight during Google Stadia Connect. Google might reveal a release date for the game as well.
Google Stadia is currently available only in select countries. If you didn’t know it already, no, Stadia isn’t available in India. Even existing Stadia users in the United States aren’t quite happy with the service. Many have called it a decent effort, or an okay service.
Google has not mentioned anything about releasing Stadia for India yet. We’ll keep you updated if there’s an announcement regarding that.
