Google’s streaming game platform, Stadia, appears to be grasping at straws to build its player base and that’s unfortunate. The tech behind Stadia is mind-blowing and the titles available offer a decent sampling for a variety of gaming tastes. Still, Stadia has yet to take the world by storm as we had hoped and I feel like it will take a massive shift in the tide before that changes. Despite that lack of mass adoptions, Google has decided to whittle down Stadia’s 2-month trial promotion to a mere 30 days. Starting tomorrow, new subscribers will still be able to claim the available Pro games for free but at the end of one month, the party’s over. Unless you’re a T-Mobile customer, that is.
If you are a T-Mobile customer, you’re probably familiar with TMO Tuesday. Every Tuesday, T-Mobile gives back to its customers in the form of swag, discounts on gas, free food, and more. This week, the Magenta giant has teamed up with Google and is giving its customers a free, 3-month subscription to Stadia Pro and all the games that come along with it. To snag this deal, you’ll obviously need to be a T-Mobile customer and have the TMO Tuesday app installed on your phone. Log in and find the Stadia Pro promo and click it. You have until June 9 to save and redeem the promotion and it’s only open to new Stadia Pro subscribers. The moment you sign up, you’ll have access to the titles below plus new games at the beginning of every month.
