Act fast: Claim 3 free months of Stadia Pro, no purchase necessary

If you've been meaning to try the pro tier of Google's streaming games platform, then you have some quick work to do to try it for free.

Square Enix's Outriders has landed on Stadia the same day as consoles and PC

Since Google announced that Stadia's first-party development arm, Stadia Games & Entertainment, would be shutting down, there's been a lot of online prognosticating about the platform's imminent death — but Google seems committed to making good on its pledge to keep bringing on third-party titles.

Stadia is giving away controllers and Chromecasts again — but there's a catch

Lenovo gives away 3 months of Stadia Pro with gaming PCs, because Lenovo doesn't know what Stadia is

Lenovo doesn't seem to get the point of Stadia. It's offering three months of access to the service's $10 Pro tier if you buy a new Legion or IdeaPad Gaming-branded laptop or desktop PC. Which is nice. But the entire point of Stadia is that you don't need local gaming hardware to play it. So what's the point of tying a promotional freebie to gaming machines? Wouldn't it make more sense to offer free Stadia Pro on a low-cost machine that can't play high-end PC games?

Following the initial announcement in early February, FIFA 21 is finally available on Stadia for $24.59 (£25.19) today.

All the games on Google Stadia (Update: Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition)

Google's cloud gaming service, Stadia, began trialing on November 19 (2019), and even though you needed a $130 Founder's Edition kit to gain access, Google eventually opened the floodgates to everyone in August (2020).

If you like to play games but don't want to invest in a console, Google Stadia is worth considering. It's a subscription-based service that lets you stream games and works on virtually any device, including your phone, tablet, computer, and TV.
