Five games are now live for you to claim as part of your Stadia Pro subscription and one game that was set to leave pro will be hanging around for some time yet. We have a free play weekend upcoming, Ubisoft+ is now available in more countries and more than 20 indie games are on sale right now.
Today Stadia dropped another 2 games into the pro library; ARK: Survival Evolved & Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Manager. Both these games come in addition to the previously announced Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, Little Big Workshop & Wave Break. You can head to the store and claim all 5 games right now as part of your pro subscription.
