Hot on the tail of NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW, Google’s streaming game platform Stadia is also coming to iOS. As with competitors, it will use a browser-based version of the service to bypass Apple̵
Plus, Stadia is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a giveaway of some free hardware. Players who pre-order the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 gets Stadia Premiere Edition, including a Stadia Wi-Fi controller and a Chromecast Ultra, for free. The game costs $ 60 and the hardware bundle is $ 100, so it’s a great deal … and an enticing way for those who were planning to buy the game to try out the service.
Those who have already pre-ordered Cyberpunk Stadia can claim a free Premiere Edition and the promotion will run until December 18, eight days after the game’s release. This is the second time Google is giving away the Premiere Edition bundle – it will also be sent to YouTube Premium subscribers.
Stadia is also announcing its first free game for all players, Destiny 2: New Light. Destiny 2 is at least a free to play game, but the New light extension costs $ 40 on other platforms. That makes New Light the first free game that doesn’t require players to have an active Stadia Pro subscription for $ 10 per month.
