It took some time, but Google finally seems to want to get the right gear for its streaming games service: for some hours now users in 14 countries around the world can sign up for the Stadia Pro subscription free for two months. Countries that benefit from this offer also include Italy, as well as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.
Thanks to the new offer, it is no longer necessary to purchase one of Google's hardware bundles to access the platform. All you need to do is visit the Stadia website, sign up and download the app for iOS or Android, even if you need a USB compatible controller or keyboard and mouse for proper operation. When you start the service for the first time, you will have access to nine games, one of which Destiny 2. If you choose to subscribe to Stadia Pro, Google will not charge costs for the first two months, which will be totally free.
After the trial period, the Pro level of Stadia will cost 9.99 euros per month and as known allows you to play in 4K resolution and get discounts on games and expansions. The user will also have some free titles available, new every month. With the free level, however, the games will have a maximum resolution of 1080p, and you will need to buy the titles before playing them in streaming.
At the moment, in an official note, Google claims to temporarily limit the default streaming resolution of the games to 1080p, instead of 4K, to limit the impact of the platform on Internet traffic, already severely tested by the surge in data for work at home, remote school, video chat and video conferencing, audio and video streaming and so on. however, it is possible to return to streaming video games in 4K resolution by manually changing the video settings within the Stadia app.
The new free two-month offer for Stadia Pro proposed by Google will probably make you forget the disappointing launch of the service. Although not exactly a flop, Stadia has not been launched with all the features promised by Google and detailed at the GDC 2019. Fans have not found some promised features at launch, such as the possibility to play in 4K from the Web. Anyway , hard to complain now that two months will be totally free.
