Ahead of the Cyberpunk 2077 release, Google has expanded the list of supported countries for their game streaming service called Stadia.
In the blog post update from Samuel Peterson who is the "Head of EMEA Business Development" at Stadia, they confirmed these newly supported countries: Austria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Switzerland. If you already have a Google and/or Gmail account - you're good to go. It may take up to 24 hours for it to all roll out fully though.
Stadia as a service is entirely free to sign up and use like you would any other store to buy games from. Plus there's the optional Stadia Pro subscription to get free games (currently about 33), 4K support and extra discounts at times. There's also now some free to play titles like Destiny 2 and Super Bomberman R Online with more to come. Once in, you can also grab Stadia Pro free for one month.
You can use the service on Stadia.com on Linux through a Chromium browser.
For new users I would suggest checking out the new Stadia exclusive Outcasters. I've ended up personally putting quite a few hours into it, as it's actually a huge amount of fun. Trailer is below:
