Google is offering 2 months of Stadia Pro for free
One of the interesting side effects of people being cooped up in their homes is the outpouring of content. Movies have been released digitally early, online classes for kids have gone free, and many paywalls have been lifted. Google is now joining in by making Stadia Pro free for 2 months and they’re removing the hardware kit buy-in.
All you have to do to take advantage of this offer is go to stadia.com and sign up with your Google account. Then you will need to download the Stadia app on your Android or iOS device. You can also play on your computer or Chrome OS device with an HID-compliant USB controller or mouse/keyboard. There’s no requirement to buy the $129 hardware kit to get started.
Google isn’t forgetting about current players either. If you’re an existing paid Stadia Pro user, you won’t be charged for your next 2 months. This offer is only available in 14 countries and will be rolling out over the next couple of days. Those countries are the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
Once you sign up, you will have free access to 9 games, including Destiny 2: The Collection, GRID, and Thumper. Also, since there is an increased strain on internet traffic, Google is working to reduce the load by changing the default resolution from 4K to 1080p. There may be a limited number of spots available for this free Stadia Pro offer, so act fast.
