Google's game streaming service, Stadia, today adds another 5 titles available for anyone who has an active Stadia Pro subscription to redeem. As promised by Google recently, they continue to expand Stadia and reward those who stick with the Pro tier.

Hitting Stadia Pro today and available right now are:

  1. Get Packed
  2. Little Nightmares
  3. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  4. SUPERHOT
  5. Panzer Dragoon: Remake

So right now there's 17 games in total you can access instantly with Stadia Pro. As a reminder of what, here's the current list of Stadia Pro games:

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

Stadia also has The Elder Scrolls Online on June 16, which will be another free game to claim on Stadia Pro pushing it up to 18. The Elder Scrolls Online will be coming with cross-play with Windows and cross-saves too. That will end up making The Elder Scrolls Online one of the easiest games to play, with it being available on so many platforms across many different devices since it carries your progression.

More games were also confirmed for the Stadia store recently including Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux. Not surprising, since they already have Metro Exodus up on there.

As an added bit of extra info, it seems the game porter and SDL2 software developer Ryan "Icculus" Gordon was behind the port of Doom 64 to Stadia. As Icculus wrote on Patreon, Stadia already has SDL2 support done by another game porter, Ethan Lee. According to the post, porting was somewhat straightforward too so it seems traditional Linux builds can be very close to what Stadia actually uses (barring Stadia-specific features).

For what's coming next on Stadia, according to 9to5Google who scape updates from the Android package, it seems Google are planning a lot including: a better chat system with party support, trials, demos, free weekends, big sales and more. As expected though, Stadia over-promised initially as noted by Take-Two's CEO and covered by GameSpot, who said pretty clearly it's been slow going.

You can try it out now on Stadia.com. It works on Linux in a Chromium-based browser and you don't need Pro, you can just register and buy a game like other stores (Doom 64 seems cheapest at £3.99). As a final reminder, if you sign up for Pro before June 3, you get 2 months free instead of 1.

Is ESO any good on a console though?

I tried it with a Steam Controller and it was... ok, casually, for just doing quests (at a slower pace than usual).
But other than that it was a no for me.
I spent quite a bit of effort on the controls scheme and it was miles ahead of the default config, but I still wouldn't call it a good experience.

But I only tried it on the PC version... is the Xbox/PS version any better? How much?

And also, is Stadia ESO gonna be the PC version or the console one?

They confirmed cross-play with "PC", which will mean both Windows and macOS since it's all the same there. So all Windows, macOS and Stadia players are together.

I wouls probably play it a lot more if they would release a native version for Linux.
Funny enough this game runs much nicer than Daggerfall:Unity does. Of course that is probably my fault as I installed some mods...
Stadia needs more games that don't work in Wine / Proton.

If you own a gaming computer, Stadia is mostly useless except for games currently borked in Wine/Proton.

While it's nice it has Destiny 2, PUBG, RDR2 it needs more like Fortnite, Apex Legends, Hell Let Loose, Paladins, RUST, etc.

GeForce Now has a lot more of these borked games, which makes it more ideal.

I'd love to see a inexpensive cloud gaming service specifically for Mac and Linux users that only has games known not to run in Wine / Proton and as games become supported, get removed from the service.

MK11 and Zombie Army 4 those games that do not work at all via of Wine or Proton. Currently, my group has picked up ZAT since it was on sale recently via of GreenManGaming and we started playing that more but MK11 is still something that does not work fully via of ProtonDB. When it does, we will all be there with NRS shirts one.

I have been playing Destiny 2 on Stadia alot recently. Not using a controller, but my keyboard and mouse, and it has been working great. Every once and a while i get a slight internet connection hickup, but for the most part it's on par.

I installed Stadia, and it plays pretty well, responsive.
I'm not sure if it's because I'm ultra sensitive to quality levels or if its because they've reduced quality during this free trial period, but it looks like I'm playing it at 1080p on my 1440p monitor.

In all honesty though, I either already own or am not bothered about any of the free games in the pro bundle, and I feel like if I'm going to pay full price for a game I would rather get it on Steam/GoG/Battlenet/Origin.

So, not really for me. But a cool technology.

I recommend installing and using Stadia+ (plus), it seems to run better and give you more options. Its an extension that really should be part of Stadia.

There's no "free" games here, this is to be considered a rental service? Monthly fee to access a given set of games, like the Playstation Plus membership?

IIRC we had the same type of arguments when Liam started posting Proton news, the same idea that we should keep Linux news "pure" as in native only news. Luckily we got past that, but I see we're starting all over again with Stadia.

From where I'm standing I think that if we're OK with news about games made for Windows > played locally through Wine, we might as well be OK with news about games made for Linux > played remotely through a browser.

Sure, it doesn't fit in the pure/native/etc category, but the Linux connection is there nevertheless, and is worth posting news about it.
