Elder Scrolls Online is the first MMORPG to land on Stadia, and it's free for Pro members

It's been known that the popular MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online would be coming to Stadia since the very beginning, but only recently did we learn that the game would be launched on June 16th. As of a few moments ago, ESO is officially available on the Stadia Store, and the base game is free for all Pro members. Now, this free version does not include any of the game's expansions outside of the Morrowind chapter, which coincidentally means the latest chapter Greymoor isn't included either, but thanks to the game's PC cross-save functionality, whatever you already own on PC is included with the Stadia version (all of my Zone and Dungeon DLC is indeed intact), as long as you link your accounts.
