Google releases battle royale PUGB as next free to play Stadia Pro title

It's no secret that Stadia's current business model is rather divisive among players. However, Google remains confident in their platform and has been offering a 2-month free trial of the service since earlier this month. Try it out for yourself or check out our Stadia review for a bit more detail on the service.

During today's Stadia Connect livestream, Google announced several new and upcoming titles for the platform. Upcoming releases include many of EA's biggest franchises like FIFA and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Another future title that looks quite interesting is Crayta, a co-operative building and creation game. I think a game like that could really flourish on an 'always-on' platform like Stadia.

Three new arrivals were announced and released during the livestream. This includes PUBG (Playerunknown's Battlegrounds), Octopatch Traveller, and Get Packed. PUBG is also free for Stadia Pro subscribers, which includes those using the free trial. Octopath is unfortunately purchase-only at the moment, but it's great to see some JRPGs arriving on Stadia.

Despite it's flaws, Stadia is an option worth looking into to play games on Linux that aren't available or playable natively on our OS of choice. It runs surprisingly well through the Chrome browser on any Linux desktop.
