Stadio continues to work on beefing up its game catalog. And while the latest two games aren’t new, they’re new to the gaming streaming service. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Kona are coming to Stadia, along with Marvel’s AvengersThe Elder Scrolls Online, and SUPERHOT.

A game console or game service is only good as the games it has on tap. And that’s one of our reservations about Google Stadia. It’s a work in progress, but at least there is progress.

The latest two games Google plans to bring to Stadia should be familiar to anyone who spends a lot of time gaming. First up is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.

This isn’t your typical Lara Croft game. It plays more like a 2.5D shooter, although you’ll still solve puzzles and escape traps. You can play online with friends, and the game features four characters that work together to avoid the dangers and find the treasure.

In Kona, you’ll control private-detect Carl Faubert as he explores an isolated village.

Set in harsh winter land, you’ll need to survive freezing weather while searching for clues to solve a mystery. You won’t find guns and action here. Instead, this game is about the story and intrigue.

Google didn’t say when the games would hit the service, but we’ll let you know when you can buy them.
