Sign up for Ubisoft+ through Stadia to get access to 20 games

Not everyone is a fan of monthly subscription services, but in some cases, they can end up being cheaper than buying everything you want individually. Ubisoft+ is a subscription that includes most of the titles published by the French game company of the same name, and Google has announced you can now sign up for the service right through Stadia.

Five notable times Google probably pissed you off

Five notable times Google probably pissed you off

There's a reason Google has become one of the most important companies on the internet: its core products like Gmail and search are great—when was the last time you looked something up with anything other than Google? And then there's Android, which under Google's stewardship has become the largest computing platform on Earth with devices ranging in price from dirt cheap to obscenely expensive. But Google doesn't always make the right call. In fact, it has royally screwed up on numerous occasions. Here are five of the worst Google missteps, as chosen by the AP staff in a spirited Slack debate.

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

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

Life is Strange: True Colors is coming to Stadia in September

Life is Strange: True Colors is coming to Stadia in September

This year hasn't been kind to Stadia, but Google can rest assured at least one major publisher is on its side. Earlier this week, Square Enix brought its hit JRPG Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age to the cloud-streaming platform, and its brand-new RPG-shooter Outriders is set to release next month. Stadia fans can look forward to another major title this fall, as Life is Strange: True Colors plans to go live on September 10th.

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

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?

FIFA 21 may be an underwhelming entry to the long-standing series, but for those of us who use Stadia, it couldn't be more exciting — it's the first game in EA Sport's football (okay, soccer) franchise to make the jump to Google's game streaming service, hot on the heels of Madden NFL 21. Following the initial announcement in early February, FIFA 21 is finally available on Stadia for $24.59 (£25.19) today.

Stadia's still here, and it's still getting new games. New in the sense that they're new to Google's streaming platform, not in the sense that no one has played them before.
