Stadia Pro free games that will hit us in January are now revealed, and they are Thumper and Rise of the Tomb Raider. However, the same time their price drops to $0, Google is removing Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for good and it will happen on December 31, 12 PM Eastern. People who have claimed it or do so before the end of this year will still be able to play it, naturally, but the offer will no longer be available come 2020. However, the array for free games is getting bolstered with a catalog size increasing to five titles.
But, what matters is that Thumper and Rise of the Tomb Raider will be requiring no extra charge, beginning on January 1st, 2019. Google’s initial offer at launch was somewhat criticized online, as the number of games was scarce, and the fees were a bit costly, but now with these slight adjustments and expansions of the original deal, it certainly got better. However, free game section is still lacking a bit more titles, which is the common opinion on the web. It doesn’t contain a wide selection or any must-have titles. However, since Stadia will have a separate free game tier, it will be easier to decide if we want to focus on pursuing new games and purchase them, especially if we don’t like the free offer that comes with the Pro subscription.
But, the arrival of Thumper is definitely aiming to rise up the stakes. It is a game that originally came out in 2016 and is best described as a combination of rhythm and violence, which uses the classic rhythm-action gameplay iconic for Guitar Hero. Of course, the gameplay and graphics are much more last-word and the game has had its reviews in the Very Positive niche, on other platforms. Developed and published by Drool, it’s certainly going to look appealing with that Stadia Pro subscription.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is currently on sale for most of the other platforms, because it is Christmas after all. The game’s PC version on Steam has Overwhelmingly Positive reviews and, despite it being released in 2016, is still quite a thing. Lara Croft is involved in a new story, with the standard exploration, tomb raiding, and fighting being supplemented by a zombie infestation, in the Lara’s Nightmare storyline. Again, it will be a fine addition to all subscribers.
Google Stadia certainly hasn’t gone out of its way to offer a bunch of freebies for the subscribers, but Pro users know there are other benefits to it than that, of course. Still, having the selection more balanced as time goes by is guaranteed to get the customers satisfied. Ten bucks per month is definitely not too much for 4K resolution, 5.1 surround sound, and even these free games to fill the mix.
