It was a quiet week for Stadia with just one new game released, but there’s some fun in the pipeline with April’s Stadia Pro lineup having been revealed and Far Cry 6 offering up a free-to-play weekend.

Stadia Changelog is a weekly series on 9to5Google where we round up some of the Stadia news that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to talk about. This includes a roundup of which new games were released on Stadia during the week, which games saw updates and patches, new games either confirmed or speculated for the platform, and more. Come back every Fridayand don’t forget to check out Bandwidth, our weekly look at the rest of the cloud gaming world, including GeForce Now, Luna, and more.

New games on Stadia

One new title joined Google Stadia this week, in Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion. The game, which first launched in 2018 on other platforms, follows the popular characters with same voice cast as the TV show. Pricing lands at $29.99.

So far, nearing four months into 2022, Google Stadia has added 15 new games to the platform. In 2021, Google delivered 107 new titles to the Stadia library, and the company promises at least 100 new games during 2022.

While there was nothing new this week, Google did confirm some new titles on their way for next week. On April 1, Deliver Us The Moon will join the platform as a part of Stadia Pro. City Legends: The Curse of the Crimson Shadow Collector’s Edition will also join on the same day as a part of April’s Pro lineup. World War Z: Aftermath is also launching straight to Stadia Pro.

Notably, Stadia has also opened up pre-orders for Elemental War 2 ahead of the game’s May 6 release.
