For those that might not be so proactive over on Stadia, Google back in July this past summer unveiled another unique release for its video game streaming platform – Crayta. However, the game comes from a separate, third-party developer rather than an internal Stadia Games and Entertainment team. Coming from Unit 2 Games, the title is ultimately a game creator in itself allowing users to create environments and experience when playing.
But, as already stated, the game only happens to be exclusive to the Google platform and users on other platforms are unable to drop in and create their own projects unless they pay their way in, of course. But now, Crayta is said to be breaking its exclusive ties with Stadia at the start of March. In that, the game will be hitting PC via Epic Games Store.
However, while Crayta is now hitting a new platform, Unit 2 Games discloses some exciting news for current Stadia fans: the Starter Edition of Crayta will be free on Stadia. Even more, Stadia’s in-house Crowd Play feature is also entering beta for the platform as well.
“Play from an endlessly growing library of user-generated multiplayer games across a huge variety of genres. From team-based shooters and obstacle courses to farming simulators and cooking games, there’s going to be something for everyone,” reads the listing on Epic Games Store. “Crayta is a truly collaborative game creation platform built on Unreal Engine 4 – you and your friends can jump in and create games together in the cloud, regardless of your experience.”
Looking ahead, Crayta is also putting to rest its daily progression system in favor for battle passes instead. Alike on other platforms, players can use the new feature to unlock an array of specialized in-game items. Also, Crayta is welcoming a few new editiosn to choose from – Crayta: Champion Edition ($49.99), and Crayta: Deluxe Edition ($59.99).
