Courtesy of Google, we have an extra Buddy Pass to give away for their game streaming service Stadia. Google gave Founders an extra Buddy Pass, so instead of hogging it we're giving it away.

What is the Buddy Pass? It gives you three months of Stadia Pro with any games that can currently be redeemed like Destiny 2, Farming Simulator 19 and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, giving you a chance to try out Stadia before the masses when it opens up next year.

How to enter the competition?

Simply comment and let us know you want to try it out. That's it. The competition is open to all, including regular GOL contributors.

A winner will be picked at random on Thursday 19th, 8PM UTC.


You will need access to either an Android or iOS mobile device, as the Stadia app is the only way to redeem and setup a Stadia account currently. Once done, any Linux machine with Chromium/Chrome can play with Stadia.

You also need good internet, at least 35 megabits per second to get the full experience.

Stadia is also only available if you live in these countries: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Ireland and the Netherlands.

Our Stadia unit was paid for thanks to supporters, we have our first impressions up here.

I need this. I really want to be able to play the games I can't play on Linux through wine or proton (or native). Like Destiny 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, et al.

Watching people on twitch, it seems pretty straightforward. I wonder if living in the middle of nowhere affects latency to datacenters. Would be fun to try out.
