UP IN THE CLOUD: ‘CYBERPUNK 2077’ LAUNCHES EARLY ON STADIA, BIG DISCOUNTS ON THQ TITLES
THQ titles are also on sale this week in the Stadia store, while games such as PGA Tour 2K21 and Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition are available for $10.99. Players can snap up Zombie Army 4: Dead War Deluxe Edition for $10.79 and several editions of Destiny 2 are also available at reduced prices, ranging from Forsaken and Shadowkeep for $8.24 to the Legendary Edition for $51.99.
In a Stadia live hangout last week, hosts Austin Creed and Katie Wilson announced Outcasters and Submerged: Hidden Depths are now free to play on Stadia Pro. Google Stadia is offering a free month of Stadia Pro to new Stadia subscribers. Stadia pro offers up to 4K resolution, 5.1 surround sound, additional free games, and exclusive discounts on select game purchases.
With the arrival of new games comes the ability for players to live stream directly from Stadia to their YouTube channel. Here’s how you can get started.
The service has also expanded to eight new European countries — Austria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Switzerland — bringing the total number of countries in which Stadia is available to 22.
Elsewhere in cloud gaming, Microsoft revealed its Game Pass streaming features will be available for PC and iOS in the spring of 2021. iOS will support streaming through a browser instead of an app. The Game Pass will also be available to new markets in Australia, Brazil, Japan and Mexico.
