Stadia News: 4 Pro Games, Riders Republic, World War Z + More!

It’s been a week of chops and changes for Google Stadia and that has brought us a load of new content to sink our teeth into during this Halloween season.



Let’s first address the new setup that’s in store for us avid Stadia followers. The “This Week on Stadia” blog post will be coming to us in bi-weekly intervals from here on out. They have decided this is the best way to communicate and if today’s blog post is anything to go by then I’m personally pleased to see this. My only wish is they announce the news in advance rather than after the fact.


November Stadia Pro Games


So let’s get in about today’s blog post. We have our November pro games announced and first up is a new game to the platform, Saints Row IV. The epic conclusion to the franchise see’s The Saints move from the crackhouse to the White House - But the earth has been invaded and it’s up to you to free the world from Overlord Zinyak and his alien empire. This crazy as hell game is a welcome addition to any subscription service and will be available to claim for Pro Members on November 1st.


DIRT 5 is the 2nd Pro game for November and is a fun, amplified, off-road arcade racing experience. Blaze a trail on routes across the world, covering gravel, ice, snow and sand, with a roster of cars ranging from rally icons to trucks, to GT heroes.
