Playable locations may be situated near points of interest, such as sidewalks, parks, playgrounds, town squares, and other publicly accessible areas.

Radeon Graphics Profiler

Leverage detailed timing and occupancy information for GPU hardware

Stadia

Radeon Graphics Profiler is an optimization tool that provides detailed timing and occupancy information for GPU hardware and can be leveraged during the development of games for Stadia.

The Stadia partners website provides instructions for how to analyze graphics, async compute usage, event timing, pipeline stalls, barriers, bottlenecks and other performance inefficiencies using Radeon Graphics Profiler. 

Interested developers should apply for access at Stadia.dev.

SDK / API

Build augmented reality experiences that seamlessly blend the digital and physical worlds

ARCore

Transform the way people play, shop, learn, create, and experience the world together—at Google scale.

Use different APIs to enable your phone to sense its environment, understand the world and interact with information. Some of the APIs are available across Android and iOS to enable shared AR experiences.

To integrate virtual content with the real world as seen through your phone’s camera, ARCore uses three key capabilities: motion tracking, environmental understanding, and light estimation. With these capabilities you can build entirely new AR experiences or enhance existing apps with AR features.

Visual Studio

Stadia integrated development environment

Stadia

The Stadia SDK integrates with Visual Studio for building and debugging Stadia projects. Visual Studio as an integrated development environment (IDE). 

Visual Studio supports 36 different built-in languages. Additionally, it can utilize nearly any programming language, provided a language-specific service exists. Support for other languages are available via plug-ins.

This platform is highly extensible and can be customized for developer needs using macros, Visual Studio add-ins, and Visual Studio packages.

Asset system

Ensure that developers can rapidly manage thousands of assets out of the box

Stadia

Stadia’s Asset System is a feature set that links developer Stadia DevKits to their studio’s existing storage solutions. 

Utilizing cloud-based services, the Stadia Asset System ensures that developers can rapidly manage the thousands of files that programmers, artists, and everyone else on the production team swap, share, and deliver every day during the development cycle.

By connecting to the existing repositories within the studio, critical functionality is established “out of the box” and can be enhanced through further integration with cloud services.
