Stadia Pro is offering, yet again, four free games to Stadia Pro subscribers for the month of April. Starting tomorrow, April 1, 2021, you can add them to your collection with a few clicks – no joke. Headlining the pack, you’ll be receiving Resident Evil 7 Biohazard – a game I vividly remember playing on my PS4 when it released four years ago, and it was scary as hell.
Next up, you’ll be able to play Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA. I spent some time watching reviews on this title today, and I have to say – it looks pretty fun. For those of you looking for a JRPG on the platform, you’ll now have more to digest. The game is very fun and features some pretty addicting arcade-style combat and combos. It was previously plagued with some pretty atrocious localization errors, but they’ve been patched up.
These next two are going to be fun, family-friendly games that you and your kids, should you have them, can play around the television on your new Chromecast with Google TV – wait…nevermind. No, that’s not right – you’ll actually need to use your older Chromecast Ultra, but you should have one of those laying around or already plugged in if you got a free Premiere Bundle with your pre-order of Resident Evil Village.
Either way, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated looks like a lot of fun, and PIKUNIKU – a cute, Loco Roco-style game that looks like it could certainly be a game that one day utilizes Stadia’s new touchscreen gameplay. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be playing any of the titles below and as always – happy gaming!
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
Resident Evil 7 biohazard is the next major entry in the renowned Resident Evil series and sets a new course for the franchise as it leverages its roots and opens the door to a truly terrifying horror experience. A dramatic new shift for the series to first person view in a photorealistic style powered by Capcom’s new RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 delivers an unprecedented level of immersion that brings the thrilling horror up close and personal.
Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil® 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level.
