We now know what you can expect from Stadia Pro, the optional Google Stadia subscription, if you stay subscribed in June with the next set of claimable games announced.

On June 1 you will be able to claim:

  • The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III - It doesn’t get more hardcore than this standout JRPG from the masters at Nihon Falcom.
  • MotoGP20 - Blazing speed. Custom careers. Motorsports action at its absolute finest. 
  • Blue Fire - Scratch that 3D platforming itch with Blue Fire, a delightful eldritch adventure that will have you leap through deadly traps, battle daunting adversaries, and more. 
  • Chronos: Before the Ashes - Every time you die, you age a year, growing in some ways while diminishing in others. Can you slash your way through this atmospheric RPG before time runs out?

Additionally, May 31 is the last day for Stadia Pro subscribers to be able to claim Reigns, as then it will go back to the Stadia store as normal for purchases.

If you missed it Super Animal Royale and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse were also recently announced and Stadia claim the service is "alive and well" in a recent interview. Something a bit bigger is coming though, and soon too. ARK Survival Evolved will be launching on Stadia this "Summer" they confirmed, and it will be a Stadia Pro title too.

Want to try another game to see how Stadia does? While there's a few free to play games now, you will also be able to try Ghost Recon Breakpoint during their Stadia Free Play Days between Thursday, May 27 until Monday, May 31 but it does need a current Stadia Pro subscription to try it. Honestly, I still find it completely stupid they force Stadia Pro subscription to try some of these free weekends, definitely doesn't help the service.

On top of all that, Destiny 2 is finally going to be a bit less lonely on Stadia soon. Bungie are testing cross-play (finally!) in a special Cross-Play Beta Playlist for Vanguard Strikes which is live right now until May 27. Go try it out. No word on when it will come back proper after this initial test.

Want more? Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 - The Official Video Game is confirmed for launch on June 22 and Control Ultimate Edition will be available on Stadia as well sometime this "Summer".

Reminder: Stadia Pro is not required, it's optional to give you regular free games to claim along with 4K support for titles that have it. Normal Stadia accounts buy games like any other store. One day, Google might actually advertise and explain it all properly.

Is it possible to remove or hide claimed games from pro, there are those that you found out are completely not in your taste and now just clutter your list?

With ARK coming to Stadia, does this mean they will also update the broken Linux build?
And finaly add that promised Vulkan support?

After all these many years, last time I tried to play it, the graphic/performance was stil terrible….

If you have the Stadia Enhanced extension installed (which I must say is a must considering the lack of options in Stadia's interface) then yes, you can hide them.

Don't count on it. This is the company that took multiple months to fix broken water, even when we showed them a 2 minute fix. They probably only care about Stadia, as clearly Google are giving them a monetary guarantee with it being in Stadia Pro.

I have Pro for free til mid-July. I will check out Chronos as the premise is interesting. Right now everyone I know is in love with The Division 2. I'm enjoying it a lot with them as it's the most pick up and go of the games I own on Stadia.
