Google announced today that Stadia is rolling out to eight more countries in Europe. The latest expansion means that the cloud gaming service is now available in 22 territories.
Players in Austria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Switzerland can start using Stadia over the next 24 hours. Samuel Peterson, Head of EMEA Business Development for Stadia, reiterated that the service won't require new hardware since it's designed to work with laptops, desktops, mobile phones, tablets, and game controllers.
In addition, you can sign up for the service using only your Gmail account, although you will need a strong internet connection to play games. Some of the titles you can play for free are Destiny 2 and Super Bomberman R Online, plus you can share games with family members through the service's Family Sharing feature. More titles are also available to purchase via the Stadia store such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
And if you're a new member, you can get a free month of Stadia Pro, which gives you access to a number of additional games. After that, your access to games will cost €9.99 per month in the European markets where it's available.
