Stadia Pro subscribers get 5 new games on June 1

By - | Views: 18,492

Each month, subscribers of the Stadia game streaming service with the Pro tier get free games and in June they're getting an additional five.

Games included on June 1 for Stadia Pro will be:

  • Get Packed
  • Little Nightmares
  • Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  • SUPERHOT
  • Panzer Dragoon: Remake

That's the largest amount of games Google has added in a single month to Stadia Pro, which will bring the count up to 17 in total that you get instant access to. You could read into that in a few ways, most likely Google needing to pull in more users and additional games is obviously the best way to do so.

So from June 1, Stadia Pro will have these games:

  1. Destiny 2: The Collection
  2. GRID
  3. Gylt
  4. PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
  5. Serious Sam Collection
  6. Spitlings
  7. Stacks on Stacks (on Stacks)
  8. SteamWorld Dig 2
  9. Steamworld Heist
  10. SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech
  11. The Turing Test
  12. Zombie Army 4
  13. Get Packed
  14. Little Nightmares
  15. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  16. SUPERHOT
  17. Panzer Dragoon: Remake

On top of that, as already announced recently Stadia Pro will also be getting The Elder Scrolls Online on June 16 bumping that list up even more. Google kept telling people not to think of it as the 'Netflix of games' but as Stadia Pro keeps on increasing the game count, it's starting to feel a little more like it.

As a reminder, Stadia will soon drop down from two to one free month of Stadia Pro when you sign up. Do so before June 3 if you want both months free.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is a game I would like to get into. Hopefully Zombie Army 4 goes on sale or something.

Then don't read the article? What point does this serve? Stadia is growing whether you like it or not and unlike any other streaming platform available today is free and works on Linux.

To be honest, I could do without these Stadia posts. Stadia is a closed platform that takes away all your rights since you are basically paying monthly and full price per game to interact with a video on another server. Once that service is gone or Google gets bored of it, you lose access to $60 games.

I of course game on Steam and try to buy on GOG when I can. I like the DRM free nature and can archive my games if I want. It’s one of the last outlets where I still feel like I’m getting something that will last.

Stadia being “Linux” is just like saying macOS is “BSD” due these companies taking free software and locking it down into their own walled gardens.

Then turn them off in the control panel? Bye Felicia.

Here's my thoughts on why I use Stadia. Stadia is Linux and DOES help Linux gaming. It's up to developers/publishers to bring their games to desktop Linux.

If DOOM Eternal was on Linux, I would have bought it on steam. If RDR2 was on Linux, I would have bought it on steam. But they're not and I'm not about to rent a Windows machine in the cloud just to play the games I want to play but cannot on Linux (DOOM Eternal on proton could break after any update, as already proven).

QuoteNative Linux Release > Supported Proton Release > Stadia > Unsupported/Non-legal tweaks

I will buy Metro Exodus on steam...once it comes to Linux.

The point of my post is that people are not really caring much about Stadia or if it gets 5 new games. I may raise a eyebrow if they add 100 new games a month... but 5 is pretty crappy.

Also the whole concept of how it works is pretty bad, you pay full price for the game you can't take home, then you must pay to USE the service on top... WHY don't they just include a flat rate price per month and let people play everything much like how game services on consoles work that give you a big collection of stuff to play for free..

BUT its like talking to a brick wall...

Your concept of how it works is misinformed. You do NOT have to pay to use Stadia, it's free. You CAN pay for a Pro subscription to unlock higher resolutions and "free" monthly games, but that's optional.

If I quit my Pro membership today I'd still be able to play Doom and RDR2 on Stadia free of charge, at 1080P resolution.

Many of the games on Steam and GOG are closed source also...I hear you, though. Also games are not $60. They have some games going as low as $5 to $10. I picked up MK11 for $30 and they accepted free gift cards from Gpay so that's a win since you can earn that elsewhere in the same way that ppl sell items on Steam to buy games.

A Linux gamer can play games on Stadia on their Linux desktop that alone is reason enough to cover, IMO.
