What is Google Stadia?

Google Stadia is a cloud-based gaming service that went into limited release in November 2019. With customer accounts and game history stored online, Google Stadia promises that no consoles or game disks will be necessary. All you need is a computer or a compatible mobile device, which can be connected to a TV through a Chromecast Ultra. When using Chromecast Ultra, a dedicated Stadia Controller is needed.

Google Stadia price and games

Google Stadia has two subscription tiers. A basic Stadia subscription is free, although users still have to pay for each game. For Stadia Pro, the monthly subscription fee is 9.99 USD, with an additional cost to purchase each game. Stadia Pro offers higher quality visuals and audio when streamed over Chromecast Ultra. Stadia Pro also offers a one month free trial.

Another option is the 99.99 USD Premiere Edition package that includes a Chromecast Ultra, a controller, and one free month of Stadia Pro service for new users.

Google Stadia is rapidly adding to its list of games, which already includes scores of titles, such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Countries with Google Stadia

Google Stadia is available in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It is expected to expand to more regions over time.

Subscribers need to have a billing address in a country where the service is available. It is expected that some countries will not have all the games offered by Google Stadia. This means subscribers traveling in another country might not be able to access the games purchased in their home countries.

A VPN can help you appear to be in a different country so you can access your account and play the games you expect, wherever you are.
