Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is coming to Stadia soon. You can experience the latest instalment of this fantastic action-RPG series on July 6.

Renowned adventurer Adol “the Red” Christin and his companion Dogi arrive at Balduq, a city annexed by the Romun Empire, only for Adol to be detained before setting foot inside. While imprisoned, he meets a mysterious woman named Aprilis who turns him into a Monstrum, a being with supernatural Gifts and the power to exorcise monsters. Now, Adol must ally with his fellow Monstrums to fend off the fearsome threats emerging from a shadowy dimension called the Grimwald Nox, as well as unravel the mysteries of the Monstrum curse, and the truth behind the unrest within Balduq.

Refer Friends & Get Rewards

American and Canadian Stadians' are getting a new and improved rewards program for referring friends to Stadia while us "schmucks" here in Europe get nothing.

Why? Goodness only knows why. A question we don't get an answer for the same way we never got a reasoning behind the prior referral program being locked into the same region either.

It's a kick in the teeth for sure but let's show you how the new program works:

  • When you refer one friend, you can get a free month of Stadia Pro

  • When you refer two friends, you can get an exclusive Stadia avatar.

  • When you refer three friends, you can get a Stadia Controller for half the price.

This is a limited time offer between June1 - August 31, 2021.

Ubisoft+ Rolling out to Europe?

As you see from our video above it seems like Stadia is rolling out Ubisoft+ across Europe. It's not available in every country which Stadia is available in right now though but the wheels are in motion and I expect an announcement in the coming weeks.

Will this announcement be part of a Connect in the near future? Surely we can't go through the summer without some sort of event...

That's you all up to date with the Stadia news for now. You can keep up to date with all the latest goings on at CGX across Twitter, YouTube, Discord and right here on our website.
