Stadia Savepoint: April updates

A group of friends gather on the couch while playing a Stadia game on their TV.

It’s time for another round of our Savepoint series, where we recap the new games, features and updates available on Stadia.

In April, players took a swing at the leaderboard in Golf With Your Friends. Meanwhile, those who wanted a bit more action fought the undead in House of the Dead: REMAKE, a callback to the original 1997 arcade classic. Like any game on Stadia, players could jump into these titles right away, without waiting for downloads or installs.

Active Stadia Pro subscribers enjoyed four additions to the Pro games library, including two new titles that launched on Stadia — World War Z: Aftermath and City Legends - The Curse of the Crimson Shadow. Pro subscribers could also claim Chicken Police - Paint it RED! and Ys IX: Monstrum Nox at no cost to add to their growing library of titles. It’s easy to try out new games like these in the Pro library, especially since creating a new Stadia account includes a one-month trial of Stadia Pro.

We’re continuing to make it easier for players to try Stadia in seconds, without having to create an account. In April, we doubled the number of timed trials for full games on Stadia, adding seven new trials — including World War Z: Aftermath, HUMANKIND and DRAGON QUEST XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age. You can now choose from 13 trials to play, all at no cost.
