Google’s streaming-based platform Stadia released nearly two weeks ago, and for users who own the Founder’s Edition of the platform is aware that there are two already available titles that comes with the Stadia Pro subscription: Destiny 2 and Samurai Shodown. And Google doesn’t plan for this to be a one-time special as a new batch of games have been announced for next month in December.
Revealing that Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Giants Software’s Farming Simulator 19 will be the next duo of free games for Stadia Pro subscribers.

One interesting point brought up upon the announcement for next month’s Stadia Plus goodies is what will happen to those who already purchased these titles. With the platform only limited to twelve games at launch, those who want to use Stadia are virtually limited for the time being. And now discovering that these two games will be of no cost next month will surely upset some users.
However, Google has said to be happy to issue refunds to those who have already purchased either of the two due to the scarce timing between launch and this December a Google spokesperson told to Engadget. “We know that some users have recently purchased these two games for their collection. Because of the proximity between the launch of the platform, and the announcement of these titles in Stadia Pro, we are happy to assist players if they would like to request a refund if they purchased either or both of these titles, even if it’s outside of our normal policy.”
In other Stadia-related news, it was revealed last week that Stadia does not meet the promise of games supported on Google’s platform to run 4K resolution with high-performance frame rates as the platform was advertised to do.
