There’s no question that Google Stadia hasn’t exactly gotten off to a blazing start. Between technical issues with the games and other minor inconveniences, the company is struggling to make it worthwhile. And that includes adding a few games to its Stadia Pro membership.
The company revealed today on its blog page that two new titles will join Destiny 2: The Collection and Samurai Shodown in the service. They will make their debut early next week.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (2013) — available Dec. 1
The revival to the classic adventure series, Tomb Raider follows a younger Lara Croft on her first adventure. She comes across a mysterious island loaded with threats, and she’ll need to use her skills in order to survive. This is the Definitive Edition of the game, which includes all its downloadable content.
Farming Simulator 19 — available Dec. 1
Ready to farm like a pro? Then choose from a variety of American and European farms and show your stuff in Farming Simulator 19! You’ll take part in many activities, including taking care of animals, making sure crops don’t go bad, and much more. Plus you get to control many farming vehicles. These include John Deere, along with Case IH, New Holland, Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, Krone and Deutz-Fahr.
Whether these will help turn the tide in Stadia Pro memberships isn’t known yet. But it can’t hurt to offer freebies, right? Just keep in mind that if you cancel your membership, you’ll no longer have access to these games.
As for what games will join the Stadia Pro program for January and beyond, it is unknown, but Google will likely have something in place. People seem to be losing interest in Stadia already, and this could turn around Google’s misfortunes a little bit. In the long term though, things don’t look overly promising for Google’s unique platform.
