Doom 64

Doom 64 is a classic first-person shooter that was released in 1997 for the Nintendo 64. It was later ported to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Nintendo 64, Xbox One, and PC. And now it’s available on Google Stadia (released on May 12) where players can battle demons in the 32 levels that retain the retro look and feel.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Ubisoft recently released the reveal trailer for its next Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The franchise has featured Egypt, Greece, Italy, and the Americas, and soon, players will get to make life hard for an English king as they play a Viking warrior named Eivor.

Aside from the current and next-gen consoles, it will also be available on Google Stadia. And the best thing for Stadia users is that there won’t be any waiting times downloads, installs or updates.

The Turing Test has you exploring the mystery surrounding an the icy moon of Europa. Zombie Army 4: Dead War will have you teaming up with up to three friends to stop the zombie horde. And SteamWorld Heist is a space adventure where you control robot pirates.

Embr is coming to Stadia on May 21, with early access available on Stadia and PC. The comical game takes place in a world where people can respond to emergencies to put out flames. (Just think of Uber but for amateur firefighters.) You can play by yourself or with up to 4 players.

Jotun: Valhalla Edition is developed by Thunder Lotus Games and has you exploring Norse mythology in a hand-drawn world. Thora is a Viking warrior who has died and must prove her worth to enter Valhalla. She’ll need to fight the jotun with her trusty axe.

Sundered: Eldritch Edition is a hand-drawn metroidvania where you have the power of corrupted relics that will help you fight bosses. You can choose to use the eldritch powers or refrain from using it, which will affect your humanity. You can play with up to 4 friends locally in the co-op multiplayer.

And if it’s your first time, you can sign up for two free months of Pro by signing up at Stadia.com. This allows you to claim the free games mentioned above while also playing in 4K and HDR via the Chromecast Ultra device.
