Google has announced August’s free games for Stadia Pro subscribers.
Metro 2033 Redux, Kona, Strange Brigade, and Just Shapes & Beats will join the service on August 1, while Rock of Ages III will be available from August 14.
Stadia Pro includes 4K HDR streaming with 5.1 surround sound and approximately one free game per month. Google is currently offering a one-month Stadia Pro free trial, after which it costs $9.99/£8.99 per month.
The company announced a host of new Stadia games, including several exclusives, in mid-July.
Splash Damage’s Outcasters will launch this fall exclusively for Stadia, and Google has signed exclusivity deals for untitled games from Harmonix (Rock Band), Supermassive Games (Until Dawn) and Uppercut Games (Submerged).
Other upcoming Stadia games include Super Bomberman R Online (fall 2020), Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (fall 2020), PGA Tour 2K21, WWE Battlegrounds and NBA 2K21 (all 2020).
Stadia also launched Click to Play this month. The new feature lets Stadia Pro subscribers click the links in YouTube video descriptions to instantly play the games they are viewing.
Google introduced a significant Stadia price cut in June, just seven months after the platform’s November 2019 launch.
It’s now offering the Stadia Premiere Edition (which lets you play games on your TV using Google Chromecast Ultra and a Stadia Controller) for $99.99/£89.99/€99.99, down from its original $129/£119/€129 price.
