To ring in the new year, Google has added four new titles to Stadia Pro: Ary and the Secret of Seasons, Figment, F1 2020, and Hotline Miami. All of those titles are now available to play with the $9.99 subscription, along with another unannounced title, El Hijo - A Wild West Tale, according to 9to5Google.
Open wheel racer F1 2020 is currently available for $29.99, while action-RPG title Ary and the Secret of the Seasons is offered at $39.99. Stadia describes $19.99 Figment as “a musical journey through the mind,” while the highly-rated indie top-down shooter Hotline Miami normally goes for $9.99. So in other words, there’s a fair amount of value in there for a $10 subscription.
Meanwhile, the Stadia page describes El Hijo as a “non-violent stealth game, replacing violence with the mischievous, playfulness of a young child. One core element of the gameplay is ‘El Hijo’ using the shadows to his advantage to hide from outlaws.”
Stadia got off to a slow launch, game-wise, but recently pledged to add up to 400 titles by 2022 or 2023. It also failed to launch certain features like 4K play and social/stream capabilities within the promised timeline. To make that up, Google offers two month free trials, provided you’re willing to provide credit card details. However, it recently unveiled 30 minutes of free play, with no plastic needed, showing that it’s trying hard to get users to at least try the platform.
