Google has announced the latest set of Stadia Pro games, along with new titles about to release like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Watch Dogs: Legion. PLUS news of Ubisoft+ coming to Stadia soon.

What is Stadia? A quick primer for people not following: it's a game streaming service that uses Debian Linux under the hood along with the Vulkan graphics API. Playable on Linux in Chromium / Chrome browsers. You can either buy games, or subscribe to Stadia Pro to claim games each month (or do both).

First up, here's what's coming to Stadia Pro on November 1, free to claim if you have a Pro subscription:

  • Sniper Elite 4 (NEW on Stadia) – As an elite agent of the Special Operations Executive, infiltrate WWII Italy and destroy an Axis superweapon. This version of Sniper Elite 4 features Stadia-exclusive HDR support.
  • Risk of Rain 2 – The breakout survival roguelike comes to Stadia. Join forces with up to three friends in this innovative and haunting adventure from Gearbox Publishing.
  • The Gardens Between (NEW on Stadia) – Wield control over time to unravel gorgeous puzzles in a rich, tranquil world.
  • Hello Neighbor: Hide & Seek (NEW on Stadia) – The sequel to the original Hello Neighbor makes its Stadia Pro debut. Get ready for more chilling hijinks and stealth action.
  • Republique – Hack security systems and take down a despot in this game of stealth and subterfuge.
  • Sundered: Eldritch Edition – Unravel dark magics and unlock new paths to victory in this vast, beautiful exploratory platformer.

You should act fast as Just Shapes & Beats, Metro Last Light Redux, Strange Brigade, and West of Loathing are leaving Stadia Pro on October 31. So claim them before they're gone to keep them while you have Stadia Pro, otherwise you have to buy them on Stadia as normal.

As for new titles, here's what's coming you can buy:

  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - October 28
  • Watch Dogs: Legion - October 29

If you still haven't given Stadia a go, anyone can try out the free HUMANKIND beta through October 28 and also the Immortals Fenyx Rising demo free through October 29.

When you fully sign up to Stadia, you also get one month free Stadia Pro too which will give you instant access to over 20 games. You can usually find the current Stadia Pro games available here. To save you a click, as of November 1 2020 these will be the games available to claim in Stadia Pro:

On top of that, we've learned that Ubisoft have rebranded UPLAY+ into Ubisoft+, with it confirmed to be coming to Stadia. They haven't given an exact date but they said it will arrive November 10 starting with Amazon Luna and then "later" on Stadia sometime before the end of 2020. This will be an additional monthly subscription to gain access to a growing library of Ubisoft titles, and Stadia Pro will not be required.

I don't get why? It has absolutely nothing to do with any external clients.

Six new games are a welcome addition to the pro subscription! However I don't get the idea behind for adding games that the customers may already have bought (like Risk of Rain 2 and Republique)? I didn't own them personally, but were shortly before buying Risk of Rain 2. As a regular pro user I would NOT be happy paying for something which is shortly afterwards added to my subscription. So is it really a good idea letting the (pro-) customers think twice about any purchases they may like to make (to estimate the chance the game will be added to pro in the very near future)? For me, I don't think so...

There may be a rationale behind it (or not), but I agree, I was thinking about buying Risk of Rain 2 (overwhelmingly positive on Steam) but now I feel less and less inclined to buy any game on Stadia knowing that I may get it for free later.

The problem is their currently limited back catalogue of games to use, and they can only get so many games ported in a certain amount of time. The same happens on the likes of the PS4 with PSPlus and their monthly games, only it's less of an issue as Sony has tons more to pick from. Eventually, it will be less of an issue.

The limited back catalogue is a good argument. Regardless I think it would be better not to sell games before they're included in the pro subscription because of the problem described above. Nobody like to pay money for something twice (buy a game and pay the subscription for the same game) and in my opinion Stadia don't need any angry customers.

But I've to agree - with a much bigger catalogue this should not be such an issue anymore.
