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...
