Google is offering YouTube Premium subscribers three free months to try the games included with Stadia Pro, as long as you’re a new subscriber. The offer is automatically applied across eligible accounts when subscribing to Stadia.
There may be someone who hasn’t tried Stadia before and is willing to pay to remove ads from YouTube.
As a result, three months is a long period of time to see if cloud gaming works for him, which is two months longer than a typical Stadia free trial.
The promotion comes with some conditions. Besides limiting the free months to new subscribers, Google also offers promotions only in the following countries. United States, Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
If you have previously had a Stadia Pro subscription or trial, you will not be eligible for the promotion.
The offer is applicable to YouTube Premium subscribers who have individual, family, and student accounts.
You can claim the promotion until January 31, 2022, and you have until February 14, 2022, to redeem, according to the company.
If you cancel, expect to be charged $9.99 of Stadia Pro price per month once the three months are up and you lose access to any games you didn’t purchase.
Stadia Pro includes the benefits of a game library and HD video quality for the games you stream. The service requires that you provide a valid payment method upon registration. But you will not be charged until the three months are complete. You can cancel at any time.
It’s worth noting that the current selection of games that you can claim for free is a bit selective. There are popular modern games like Hitman, smaller indie games like Floor Kids, and classic options like Killer Queen Black.
For most newer versions, you have to buy them directly. And you can find some things to play with this way.
Stadia Pro subscribers usually get a discount as well. Although Google has pulled back from Stadia, the platform continues to receive interesting new releases for purchase in its store.
Moreover, Stadia also offers games like Destiny 2 and Super Bomberman R Online to try for free with only a Google account. There is no need to present a credit card to see if Stadia is right for you.
