Today, Google Stadia announced that it will bring the Kids & Family genre to the platform, with a number of Outright Games titles being available on August 13. While PAW Patrol the Movie: Adventure City Calls will head to the platform on the same day as other platforms, family-oriented gamers can also pick up the previous game, PAW Patrol Mighty Pups: Save Adventure Bay for free through Stadia Pro. For those that want more mature fare, Rainbow Six Siege will be available free this weekend for Stadia Pro members too.
This Friday you’ll find a new category, Kids & family, within the Stadia store. It’s a place where grownups and kids alike can find family-friendly, age-appropriate games, including many based on favorite movies, shows, and franchises. We’re launching Kids & family with a bunch of games, including five titles from Outright Games that are hitting the Stadia store August 13.
PAW Patrol the Movie: Adventure City Calls leads the new Stadia store category’s launch, along with another PAW Patrol excursion in PAW Patrol Mighty Pups: Save Adventure Bay. Both games put players in control of their favorite pups as they race to save friends and use pawsome teamwork in two-player co-op modes.
In Ice Age: Scrat’s Nutty Adventure, help guide the endearing saber-tooth squirrel on a quest to gather the hallowed Crystal Nuts of myth.
Stepping back in time from the Ice Age to the late Cretaceous period, Gigantosaurus: The Game invites up to four friends to cooperate in platforming challenges, then race one another between levels to rescue their big buddy, the beloved Giganto!
Then it’s off to flights of fantasy and legendary adventure in DreamWorks Dragons Dawn of the New Riders. Toothless and all the rest of your draconic buddies are back and ready for a quest that will take them through puzzles, traps, and monsters on a mission to save their imprisoned friends.
