Blast through Far Cry 5's campaign for free this weekend on Stadia Pro

Blast through Far Cry 5's campaign for free this weekend on Stadia Pro

Stadia can be a tough sell for a lot of gamers. The library is still maturing, there's always the fear of connection issues getting in the way of gameplay, and plenty of people are just going to be more comfortable going with a gaming solution from a company with more history in the field. But for those who do give it a shot, there can be a lot to like, and for me, Stadia really became something I was excited about last fall with the release of Far Cry 5.
