For April 2021, Google is adding four games to Stadia Pro in a continuation from last month. Led by Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, there’s also the recently announced Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA.

Update 4/1: The April 2021 games — Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Gold Edition, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA, and PIKUNIKU — are now available for Stadia Pro subscribers.


Thursday, April 1st will see all four come to the $9.99 per month membership, starting with Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Gold Edition ahead of its sequel in May. It includes Banned Footage Vol.1, Banned Footage Vol.2, End of Zoe, and Not a Hero.

Set in modern day rural America and taking place after the dramatic events of Resident Evil® 6, players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective. Resident Evil 7 embodies the series’ signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago; meanwhile, a complete refresh of gameplay systems simultaneously propels the survival horror experience to the next level.

It’s joined by three other additions:

  • SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated (normally $29.99): A classic returns in an HD overhaul. Live out all your pineapple under-the-sea fantasies. 
  • Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA: It’s pronounced like “Eeeeezzzzzz.” One of the most hardcore JRPG series of them all makes its Stadia debut this week. Get ready to sample that sweet, sweet Nihon Falcom magic. 
  • PIKUNIKU ($12.99): It’s cute, it’s puzzley, and there’s something creepy lurking underneath. 

This month sees 5 claimable games leave — for prospective subscribers — Stadia Pro on March 31st: SteamWorld QuestSteamWorld Dig 2SUPERHOT MIND CONTROL DELETEF1 2020, and Hotline Miami
