Google Stadia Pro Streaming Plan To Include One Free Game Per Month

Players who subscribe to Stadia Base will not receive the periodically free games and will only have access to the database of Stadia; any games Stadia Base players want will then have to be bought. As you may already know, Google hopes its cloud gaming service will be a disruptive force, with claims of handling gaming at up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, along with HDR and 5.1 surround sound support. The first of those will be Destiny 2, in case you were wondering. The larger offering (see: more expensive) comes with a ton of free games but those go away if you cancel. But not the ones that were offered to Pro subscribers while you were unsubscribed'.

It is a mistake to equate Google's upcoming Stadia service as a Netflix for games.

Achievements, trophies, digital trinkets that make you feel good about spending a whole weekend playing video games have been a mainstay of gaming platforms for many years but Google's Stadia will not have them, at lest not at launch.

"The games you buy on Stadia are yours to play", he said, adding: "Of course, it's ok to doubt my words".

Record-Breaking Heat Wave Threatens Most of U.S.
Temperatures of around 100 degrees are possible in Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, New York City, Kansas City, St. An excessive heat warning was issued for parts of OH early Friday morning and is expected to continue until at least 8 p.m.

Mods essentially open up games so that they can be improved upon, and with mod support on Stadia players would likely be more receptive to the service when compared to another popular platform like Steam which does support mods and has for a long time. Sony notes on its website that PlayStation Plus nets users two free PS4 games a month, and Microsoft clarifies on its Xbox Live Gold page that you'll get two to four games monthly. Doronichev mentions using Google Takeout to download metadata but doesn't talk about the games themselves. You can connect the Bluetooth headset to your computer or to your Pixel phone and it will work that way.

Quite why the development team is postponing integrating the same sort of functionality for the big launch of Stadia we're not quite sure. We suspect this will change in time, however, as Google has been careful with its wording to leave the door open.

However, Google finally answered this question in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything).

Users of the base plan won't get the discounts or games, as expected.
