Google recently offered some Chromebook owners three months of free access to Stadia Pro, with more than 30 games available to play. Today, Lenovo announced a similar offer for those who have purchased its new Legion and IdeaPad gaming PCs.
The freebie is courtesy of a new partnership between Google and Lenovo which gives free access to Stadia Pro games for three months with the purchase of those laptop lineups. The offer will be available starting this month across the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the U.S.
Lenovo noted that the offer gives customers the freedom to play on their laptops anywhere. More than 130 games will be available, including Immortals Fenyx Rising, Cyberpunk 2077, NBA 2K21, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion. Gamers can also play recently added titles such as Journey to the Savage Planet, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Enter the Gungeon.
It's interesting to see Stadia Pro's titles becoming available for free on Lenovo laptops amid some challenges faced by Google's Stadia Games & Entertainment division. It's the same team that's responsible for developing exclusive games, and it's reportedly shutting down.
