While the port of The Elder Scrolls Online was something of a disappointment on Stadia, there's more coming to look forward to if you're a fan of the game streaming service.

Today, Google announce that on July 1 not only will Stadia Pro subscribers be getting the upcoming (and fun looking!) Crayta with their sub but another 3 games will also be available on Stadia Pro including:

  • Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
  • SteamWorld Dig
  • West of Loathing

Keeping in mind that The Elder Scrolls Online will only remain free to claim until July 16, when anyone who hasn't claimed it by then would need to buy it as normal on Stadia here's the list of games you can claim and play instantly with Stadia Pro from July 1:

  1. Crayta
  2. Destiny 2: The Collection
  3. Get Packed
  4. GRID (2019)
  5. Gylt
  6. Little Nightmares
  7. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
  8. Panzer Dragoon: Remake
  9. PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
  10. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  11. Serious Sam Collection
  12. Spitlings
  13. Stacks on Stacks (on Stacks)
  14. SteamWorld Dig
  15. SteamWorld Dig 2
  16. SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech
  17. Steamworld Heist
  18. SUPERHOT
  19. The Elder Scrolls Online
  20. The Turing Test
  21. West of Loathing
  22. Zombie Army 4

That is quite a list but will it be enough to keep people paying for Stadia Pro? Crayta, the upcoming 'First on Stadia' title might perhaps be the one to do it, as long as there's enough players which has been Stadia's problem on games like Destiny 2.

Additionally, Wave Break releases today as a new 'First on Stadia' title with other platforms to come in the following months. Wave Break is an arcade-style 'skateboating' game involving plenty of action:

On top of that both previous Metro games (Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux) will also arrive on Stadia today.

No word yet on expanding into more countries, when we know we will let you know.

All games can be purchased on Stadia if you don't have a Pro subscription which you get 1 month free when you sign up. They've announced another bunch of sales including discounts on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, The Crew 2 and more.

So what to do, what to do...
Should I get Metro Exodus at a crazy good price on Stadia and play now, or wait until the Linux version comes up on Steam, sometimes in the future?
(btw, is it still coming to Linux?)

Think you meant West of Loathing, not Kingdom of Loathing:

QuoteWest of Loathing is a laugh-out-loud funny RPG from the creators of Kingdom of Loathing. Set against the backdrop of a bizarre Wild West populated with undead monsters and giant cattle, West of Loathing’s combination of wry humor and role-playing mechanics makes it an addictive addition to the Stadia Pro library.

Article corrected. Kingdom of Loathing was supposed to be West of Loathing.

I'm really looking forward to Crayta. The other 3 are solid additions, but nothing I'm particularly interested in right now.

I'm waiting for the Linux native release even though I have it claimed on Stadia Pro. TBH the 30fps performance at 4K on Stadia is a bit hard to accept given the performance of other such Metro games on Linux.

The Linux depot on steam was last updated 27 days ago. QA testing, perhaps?

What about 1080p though, does it work at 60fps? (really don't care about 4k fortunately)

It's 60FPS at 1080P on Stadia.
West of Loathing, huh? Well, nice to see they're getting some titles that really make good use of those huge servers to do games that would be hard on smaller home machines. Those stick-figures don't render themselves, you know!

Unity does, yes.
