Stadia Connect has launched a new video on the upcoming game releases and other Stadia related announcements. New Stadia tech and some new exclusive games have been announced for the future and some that are available now. Take a look each of the details that this Stadia Connect video has revealed. We’ll go over all of them here.
New Free Games for Stadia Pro Memebers
Host Meagan Timney leads Stadia’s User Experience Research Team. She starts tell us about the free games that just got released and can play as long as you are a Stadia Pro member. You can try out Stadia Pro for a month under the free trial. You’ll access to the free games and you’ll get the $10 bonus to purchase another title while under the trial period. Here is a list of the free games that just got released for Stadia Pro.
New Stadia Features
Along with the new games, the core of Stadia is being updated. As time goes on, Stadia’s infrastructure is rapidly developing into what they said they would have since day one. Since Stadia is one of Google’s properties, we expected Google to uphold this promise. This Stadia Connect announcement video confirms that they are continuing down the road of where they should be instead of keeping their consumers in the dark and/or not keeping their promises on what they are doing.
Click to Play
One of these update features Stadia promised was Click to Play. Click to Play is a feature where you are somewhere on the web (the video mentions YouTube) and you are looking to play a particular game. All you need is a link to that game and you are in that game after clicking on it. Since Stadia is browser based, this works very well for YouTubers or Streamers who are watching videos about that game and want to jump into the fun immediately after hitting one link.
Stadia Premiere Edition
Stadia Premiere Edition isn’t new but they did lower the price. Now it’s $99.99 instead of the original
$129 it was before. With the Stadia Premiere Edition, you get a Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra so you can set Stadia up on the TV of your choice (unless you have a PC connected to your TV, of course).
Note that the three free months of Stadia that originally came with the Premiere Edition is no longer included. It is cheaper though. Plus, if this is your first time signing up with Stadia, you can try out the Stadia Pro trial. Trust us, you are going to want to play your games in 4K on a TV.

Serious Sam 4
Take on hoardes of invaders while wielding a huge explosive arsenal. Play with 4 others while hitting the game hard cooperatively. Also, enter the new Legion System where you and your team can fight thousands of enemies.
There were many games that caught our eye but this one in particular really set itself apart from the crowd. Very unique game play without being a standard shooter. I can see many trick shots in the future.
There were more games on the list but these were the ones that really stood out to us. We are looking forward to playing as many games as possible to leave our verdict for you. As the Stadia Connect feature keep coming out with new tech and more games, we’ll keep posting about the good and the bad about Stadia.
