The Stadia team doesn’t seem to know the meaning of ‘quit’ and it’s filling me with joy months before Christmas. They got quite a bit of scrutiny for a certain Twitter mishap that we won’t keep talking about, and according to many, they were slow to roll out lots of promised features, but it seems like they’re getting their legs now that they’re nearing their first birthday. Six more games will be available to you with your Stadia Pro subscription starting November 1, 2020, and the selection this month is pretty hot. Let’s take a look at what you get for your $9.99 per month and don’t forget that you can now share a free trial with a friend or family member for the opportunity to get a free month of Stadia Pro for yourself in return!
Sniper Elite 4
Set in the aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series’ World War Two heritage by transporting players across the beautiful Italian peninsula, from sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, to colossal Nazi mega structures, daunting forests and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Cassino.
Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before it’s even begun.
If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe.Youtube
