Adventure and rhythm are on deck next month for Google’s streaming service.
The launch of Stadia has been…something. It doesn’t seem to have gone particularly great (though that’s hard to say without knowing exactly what Google’s goals were, of course), and it showed the many challenges a streaming based service still has to overcome. Regardless, it is also yet another avenue for free games, so there’s that.
For January, those who are subscribed to Stadia Pro will get two new free titles in their rotation. First up is Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. The game is the second in the rebooted Tomb Raider series, and this edition includes all the post-launch content. The second title is the wild and dynamic rhythm-based Thumper. The game sees you controlling a beetle-like creature as you speed through horrifying worlds of light and sound as you must bump to the music.
Both games will be available to all Stadia Pro users starting on January 1st. If you’re a Founder, don’t forget you’ll get an extra buddy pass to give away for the holidays.
