Google announces Google Stadia Founder's Edition

Google revealed details for the Google Stadia Founder's Edition during the latest Google Stadia Connect.


Today Google announced the Google Stadia Founder’s Edition, a limited-edition Stadia package for those looking to adopt the program early on.

The Google Stadia Founder’s Edition will feature a special, limited-edition Google Stadia gamepad, three months of Stadia Pro subscription, as well as a three-month buddy pass for Stadia Pro, allowing a friend to join you. The Founder’s Edition will also launch with a Chromecast Ultra, and the full Destiny 2: Collection, which grants access to all of the content release so far for Bungie’s hit shooter. Those who purchase the Founder’s Edition will also have a first chance to choose their Stadia name, making it a great way to secure your favorite gamertag.

The Founder’s Edition of Google Stadia is a very limited run item. According to Google, the Founder’s Edition will only be available for a short amount of time, and only in a small quantity. This means that those users who want to pick up the Founder’s Edition and acquire Google Stadia early, will need to go ahead and preoder.
