Correction: 12/3/21: Google has reached out to let us know that Little Nightmares is not, in fact, being added back into Stadia Pro and that Darksider’s 2 is not leaving Stadia Pro. Instead, Everspace left the Pro lineup on December 1, 2021. We will leave the original article intact below.
Google’s game streaming platform, Stadia, usually gives away 4 free games at a time with its Pro membership, which costs just $9.99 per month. This usually keeps about 30-40 titles in cycle for subscribers to claim upon signing up and paying the initial cost, which comes out to an incredible value when you consider the normal cost of each game.
For the month of December, Stadia is being very generous, perhaps as a Christmas gift to its community, by adding a total of seven free games to the Pro lineup! This means that anyone signing up for the holidays or receiving a Stadia Premiere Edition bundle as a gift will immediately have access to 44 games to indulge in.
Starting December 1, 2021, you can claim TRANSFORMERS: BATTLEGROUNDS, Wreckfest, Destroy All Humans, Falconeer Warrior Edition, Foreclosed, and Little Nightmares (Yes, this is the first repeat Pro game!). Just a while later, on December 10, 2021, Unto The End, a title that was initially delayed, will be released on Stadia Pro, so you can add that to your library too, so long as it’s not held back again.
Lastly, you should be aware that if you’ve yet to claim Everspace and Darksiders 2 up until this point, you have until November 30, just one week, to do so. At that time, they will be leaving the Pro lineup, so grab them while you can! With all of that out of the way, let’s take a look at each title you’re getting for December. Be sure to drop a comment letting me know which ones interest you most, and as always, happy gaming!

Unto The End
Unto The End is a hand-crafted cinematic platformer about a desperate journey home.
As the adventure unfolds, the decisions you make can carry consequences not just for you, but also for the creatures you encounter. Mastery of combat is critical, but fighting isn’t always the only way. Overcoming adversity can sometimes be better achieved through sharpness of perception.
