Stadia Savepoint: January updates
It’s time for another round of our Stadia Savepoint series, recapping the new games, features and updates on Stadia.
Last month, all eyes were on Rainbow Six Extraction, the sci-fi team-based shooter from Ubisoft. Available on the Stadia store to purchase or play for free as a timed demo, players teamed up in-game to fight Archaean aliens with tight coordination and tactical gameplay. Meanwhile, families found new game night options with Troll Hunters: Defenders of Arcadia and Fast & Furious: Spy Racers Rise of SH1FT3R from Outright Games. These are just a few of the 100+ games expected to arrive on Stadia this year from publishers big and small.
In January, the Stadia Pro library added new titles like Darksiders III, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark and DreamWorks Dragons: Dawn of New Riders. With 45 games in January for subscribers to claim and play right away, it was easy to pick up a new adventure — especially since all new Stadia users receive a one-month trial to Stadia Pro.
Last month, we also revealed an exciting milestone for Stadia Pro — as of February 1, our included library for subscribers hit 50 games! Stadia Pro subscribers who have claimed every game added to the library since launch now have 130 titles to choose from.
Here’s a quick look at how Stadia Pro’s library has expanded since November 2019:
