Google announced that it will allow users to play Destiny 2 anywhere for free through its Google Stadia cloud games service, starting from November 19, which may represent the largest single test of the service so far.
The search giant is trying something different to encourage people to try the platform as the first anniversary of Google Stadia launches on November 19.
This represents a significant change for Google, as over the past year you have had to either subscribe to Stadia Pro and claim a free copy of Destiny 2: The Collection or purchase the Forsaken and Shadowkeep expansions for the game separately to play.
Either way, you had to spend money with Google to access the game.
Google Stadia a year ago imposed three ways to try out the new cloud gaming service; It includes purchasing $ 130 worth of equipment, paying $ 10 per month for service, and purchasing several of its games.
Destiny 2 is free to play, and works across gaming platforms and Windows computers, but you need to purchase extensions.
You will not be able to play with your friends on other platforms; Because Google Stadia’s version of Destiny 2 does not support cross-platform multiplayer.
If you’re not paying $ 10 a month for the Stadia Pro category, the resolution is limited to 1080p, which doesn’t compare favorably with the experience you get on Xbox One.
Students can play the game via Chromebooks, within a web browser, or via an Android phone.
Google said: There are no restrictions on the length of your session when you play Destiny 2 for free as well, which may be a temptation for groups of players to create their new groups of friends who play together.
GeForce Now by Nvidia has been offering free-to-play games for months, but you’re limited to one-hour sessions unless you pay for a monthly subscription.
And when Nvidia first announced the one-hour trials, an important feature was that the company would pay money for the player to try cloud games for free.
Meanwhile, Google has had an unlimited Google Stadia free plan for several months as long as you buy the games, with very few very recent free trials.
