Stadia Savepoint! April 2020

We’re back with another update in our Stadia Savepoint series – here’s what happened in April.

This month we welcomed everyone within our 14 launch countries to Stadia and gave gamers two months of free games with Stadia Pro. Stadia is now free and open to anyone who wants to create an account. Our most recent Stadia Connect revealed that players can click here to play PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS on Stadia, plus new info on First on Stadia titles Wave BreakCrayta, and Get Packed

Stadia’s Phil Harrison also revealed: “We are bringing five games from Electronic Arts to Stadia as part of our partnership. It all starts with Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order™ coming this fall followed by EA SPORTS™ Madden NFL and FIFA. We are excited to bring these hugely popular franchises to our players on Stadia in 2020 and beyond. We’ll have more news to share about EA games on Stadia later this year.”
