Play a few games while you're at home with Google, because you can get two months of Stadia Pro for free!

Originally launched in November 2019, Stadia is a game streaming service from Google where you can play a library of over 60 video games, including free titles like Destiny 2: The Collection, GRID, Serious Sam Collection and more. No special hardware is required, as the service is cloud-based and supported on desktops, laptops and mobile devices.

Simply visit the Stadia website to sign up and start gaming! Stadia Pro lets you stream Stadia games at up to 4K HDR resolution at 60 FPS (streaming quality may vary depending on your network connection) and the service is regularly $11.99 per month, but you'll get two months for free!

This offer is available for a limited time. Note that the Stadia Pro subscription will automatically renew at regular price after the two-month trial, but you can cancel your subscription at any time to turn off auto-renewal.

    • Finally. I've had promising results a few years ago with cloud gaming with Parsec and GeForce Now, but I did notice some minor hitchiness and pixelly graphics at faster paced scenes. Enough to be a little annoying, but not horrifyingly bad. I hope Google's infrastructure is even better. I wanted to try it before, but I didn't want to buy that controller and get a Chromecast Ultra.

      Now time to play the waiting game for the code. I have high hopes, but do realize what an enormous task this is to get right. At least the cost of entry is free now.

      Edit: Now I read that you still need a Stadia Controller (to play on TV), and phone support is limited to a few popular devices, kind of a bummer.

      If you have one of the listed phones and controllers, then yes I think you could technically run the games on your phone with a controller connected, and then cast your phone to your TV with a chromecast. May not be the best way to experience Stadia because I can't comment on what kind of input lag this indirect way of playing would cause.

      There are a few ways you can play.
      If you want to play on the TV, you will need a ChromeCast ultra, and a stadia controller.

      If you want to play on your phone, you will need a supported phone, a supported controller (doesn't need to be a stadia controller), a USB chord to connect controller to phone.

      If you want to play on your computer, you can do it with mouse/keyboard, or hookup a supported controller to your computer.

      I do have a listed phone and a listed controller, so maybe I'll give it a try.

      Thanks!

    • This is great - I was actually chatting with Stadia support on Twitter as I had let my buddy pass lapse; I hadn't realized that it only had a 3 month period to be activated. They had told me that something was in the works as part of the various Covid initiatives.

      Anyway, the Stadia is super underrated. I used to play PC games (MOHAA, COD1-4, Battlefield (all of them), etc) and never got into system gaming. Now that I am an adult, I don't have time to play tonnes nor do I want to spend a bunch of money on games when they come out. Stadia gives me the option to play when I want to play without ever having to worry about my system not being of the latest and greatest specs. I grab the controller and it just works.

    • While $12 a month to play these games is a terrible deal, everyone should at least give Thumper a try while it's free. Preferably with good audio. Game is intense!

      -e- and don't forget to turn off auto renew in your subscription options!

      There will be at least two additional free games available to claim each month (on top of these 9 that you will already have claimed this month) as long as you're subscribed each month. It's not just these 9 games forever.

      Lol you think you're going to get good games for free on Stadia Pro? The entire business model of Stadia Pro is to repurchase old games at full retail prices, some of which you may already own. Not to mention, if you cancel Stadia Pro you're bumped down to the free tier, and we all know what happens when Google doesn't make money from a product - they destroy it completely and make it into two apps and put messaging capability in one.

      If you really are serious about saving money and playing casual games, look at GeForce Now free tier and get your games for free from Epic Games. I already have Destiny 2, Watch Dogs, entire Batman trilogy, etc to play (and keep). GeForce Now let's you play games you've already bought, with exceptions of course. Epic Games is also slated to get a massive integration upgrade so even more free games will be available to play. GeForce NOW also has the Founder's Edition available in Canada (sold out everywhere else in the world) which gives you three months of premium for free to try out and cancel without penalty. Also it's half the price of Stadia Pro at $6.50, if you wanna do premium that is.

      tL;dr

      Stadia Pro:
      • Good if you're a dev with lots of old IP you want to make more money off of
      • Anti-consumer as you gotta rebuy all your games at full retail price


      GeForce NOW Founders:
      • Good if you're a consumer (even without a library of old games) as you can buy / get old games from other places for cheap / free
      • An additional month of free trial
      • Half the price of Stadia Pro if you sign up now

      I tried geforce now, my only concern is if you are not a pc gamer, you are completely reliant on other game stores and they can at anytime decide to stop supporting geforce and you're screwed. The geforce founders subscription will also increase in price next year, most likely will become $9.99/month so what are you paying for? just to play your purchased games? Stadia, you don't pay to play your purchased games its free. The best subscription service will end up being xcloud with game pass and prime might end up a good option as well, should wait and see what amazon does. Geforce is catered toward PC gamers who already own a PC but want to stream it on other devices.

      100% this

      I preordered the founders edition and I promptly returned it. The free games at the time were even worse than now and it didn't stream at 4k like they claimed.
