Stadia Pro will soon drop down to one free month

By - | Views: 14,001

If you have been sitting on the fence about trying out Google Stadia, you might want to decide soon as their current generous offer is about to get less so.

Back in early April, Google officially opened the gates to anyone in the currently 14 supported countries. This came with some freebies too, as anyone who signed up (and existing subs) got two free months of Stadia Pro. Google has announced today, that this offer will reduce from two months down to one on June 3. If you sign up before then you get the two months. You can cancel at any time with a few button clicks too. If you do cancel Pro, it reverts to a standard Stadia account to purchase games on it as normal.

If you do sign up, you get instant access to claim and play:

  • Destiny 2: The Collection
  • GRID
  • Gylt
  • PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
  • SteamWorld Dig 2
  • SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech
  • Serious Sam Collection
  • Spitlings
  • Stacks on Stacks (on Stacks)
  • The Turing Test
  • Zombie Army 4

If you're interested you can sign up on Stadia.com. It works in pretty much any Chromium browser on Linux.

Right now, I'm a little disappointed.
In Chrome, the maximum resolution is 1080p for the moment, but I sometimes feel like I'm playing in 720p because the games are so ugly.
I have a 1440p screen and I would like to enjoy this resolution ALL the time.
I have a strong enough connection to play in 4K...

From what I've seen, 1440p appears to be there and some people have seen it so it looks like some sort of slow roll-out perhaps. Would definitely be nice to see more resolutions and to have a built-in way to show what res you're at.

On community forum from Stadia staff :

Currently, Stadia is limited to just 1080p via Chrome, higher resolutions are available only via CCU on a TV. The expectation has been that additional resolutions would be possible in 2020, but we don't have confirmation of the date that this will happen yet.

Is there a free to try option?

Yes, it's free for 2 months right now. Soon it will drop back down to 1 month. The link is in the article.

That's my question. I have to check the terms of service.
I'm not looking for a contract that runs, let's say,
12 months and they just offer me the first two for "free".

That's not what I would consider "free to try". :)

4K is available via Chrome if you have a 4K display - that's likely just outdated information. I can confirm I was one of the ones to get native 1440P in some games so that support is coming. The stadia+ extension still works for forcing 4K on non-4K displays.

^ This. I've been enjoying the 2 months free. I also picked up MK11 and everything looks great.

As long as they want the digits upfront they can keep their trial as far as I am concerned.
