Now until May 21 you can get a free Stadia Premiere Edition when you pre-purchase Resident Evil Village for Stadia. If you’ve been looking to pull the trigger on Google’s cloud gaming service, there may not be a better time to give it a shot.
A direct sequel to 2017’s acclaimed Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Village (releasing May 7) is one of this year’s most anticipated releases for fans of the series and potential newcomers alike. If you want to try the previous installment, Google announced that Stadia Pro members can get a free copy of Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition when the game comes to Stadia on April 1st.
This bundle includes Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil RE:Verse, a Stadia controller and a Google Chromecast Ultra, which would all typically cost you around $159.99. You’ll also get additional in-game content for Resident Evil Village, including a Mr. Racoon Weapon Charm and the Survival Resources Pack, all for $60.
For the unfamiliar, Stadia is a cloud gaming service developed by Google that lets you play without needing to buy a console or download any games. You can stream games on your PC, Android device or TV via Stadia’s app or Chromecast. It’s a flexible means of gaming that’s attractive to players wary of complicated, high-price hardware and annoyingly large game downloads.
You’ll need a Google account to get started, but once your bundle is purchased, you’ll have access to Stadia’s library of free games. If you want to check out the rest of Stadia’s library, you’ll need to purchase any additional titles you’ve got your eye on separately.
Stadia also has a Pro subscription option for a more comprehensive experience. Going Pro lets you claim free games every month and get discounts on select titles. You’ll also be able to play in 4K resolution, with High Dynamic Range (HDR) visuals and in 5.1 surround sound with a compatible TV or PC setup. It normally costs $9.99/month, but can be sampled via a one-month free trial.
The Resident Evil Village bundle for Stadia is a great chance for players to get their hands on the newest entry in the Resident Evil franchise while getting a steal on the Stadia Premiere Edition.
