Try Out these Games on Stadia for Free, No Account Required!
April 14, 2022
Looking for new video games to try out? What if I told you that you can do so completely for free, without the need to subscribe anywhere or install anything? At this moment, it just so happens that Google Stadia is making it possible to play a few video games for free, no account or download required.
Well then, today we’re going to find out more about the free video game trials on Google Stadia that don’t require an account!
Google Stadia, the cloud-based gaming on demand service
On demand content on the Internet has seen an incredible surge in popularity over the last 15 years or so. Just pay a monthly or annual subscription, and you’ll have access to mountains of content (movies, shows, documentaries, etc.) you can experience whenever and wherever.
But what about gaming? Is gaming on demand a thing yet? Yes it is, and Google Stadia is a great example of it. Stadia is a cloud gaming service that can stream video games at up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Since the service is cloud-based, players won’t need to install video games: all it takes is a stable Internet connection, through which it’ll be possible to play video games in-browser or in-app, no matter the device that’s being used (you can even play from your phone or TV!).
Also, while a gamepad is not mandatory, you can get the authentic gamer experience by purchasing the Stadia Controller.
Free trial for a few Stadia video games (no account required)
Now, cloud gaming is struggling to take off and gain serious traction within the gaming community, but we’ve got to keep in mind that it’s still a relatively new thing, having been released in November 2019.
That considered, in order to boost Stadia’s popularity the service is now offering players a free trial on a few selected games. A free month-long trial is already standard practice on the site, but you’re required to sign up if you want to use it. Once the free trial expires, you’ll have to pay $9.99 a month for the Stadia Pro subscription.
But in our case, you won’t even have to create an account to play the following games:
– MotoGP 21
– Risk of Rain 2
– SteamWorld Dig 2
– Super Animal Royale
– The Jackbox Party Pack 8
– World War Z: Aftermath
– Ys IX: Monstrum Nox
You can play each of these games for a very limited time, though: the trial period only goes from 30 minutes to 120 minutes. Anyhow, this timeframe will be enough to get a feeling about how the games perform on the platform, and to test out your hardware. If you find the experience fun and satisfying, you can then proceed with subscribing to the service!
While a Stadia account is not necessary, you’ll need to sign in through your Google Account.
