Google announced the purchase of Resident Evil Village on Stadia for USD 60 would get the Stadia Premiere Edition. Good news for gamers on Stadia or those who want to join. Google reports that it will bring the Resident Evil Village game to the cloud game service. According to a Google report, customers who pre-order games for streaming services from the Google cloud will get free Stadia Premiere Edition hardware.
The Stadia Premier Edition includes a white Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra that can run games on consumer TVs. For new customers, the set will also offer a one-month free trial on the Stadia Pro.
This is a pretty good offer because the regular price for the Stadia Premiere Edition is USD 100. However, with this bundle, customers can get Resident Evil Village for free in the Stadia Premiere Edition at USD 60 for the Standard version and USD 70 for the Deluxe version. Also, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Gold Edition will come to Stadia on April 1. Stadia Pro customers can claim the game for free on the first day of release.
Stadia has a problematic track record as a cloud gaming service. Recently, the owner of Stadia, Google, laid off its in-house game studio to focus on the technology that underlies Stadia. To note, Stadia works like a console in the cloud. Purchase games through Stadia Pro, and connect them to your Chromecast, browser, or mobile via Google servers in the style of Netflix. In contrast, Stadia’s rival NVIDIA GeForce Now uses the PC ecosystem to stream games. This will connect the user to existing game libraries on the PC, such as Steam and the Epic Game Store.
The company is known to have just doubled its premium GeForce Now membership price to USD 10 per month. But it also offers an unlimited free tier that allows the customer to play for up to an hour before asking the customer to log in again. A premium GeForce Now subscription lets users play and activate ray-tracing effects in real-time.
