On top of announcing a Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and a Doom Eternal update yesterday, Stadia appears to have added support for free game trials starting with its own exclusive title, 9to5Google has reported. Spotted by YouTuber Gem, the feature allows users on the free tier to get access to a 30-minute trial for Hello Engineer, before deciding whether to spend $20 buying it. 

Hello Engineer is a new free game for Pro tier subscribers, but it costs $20 if you’re on the free tier. Below buy/claim with Pro options, however, is a a new “Free trial” button that allows for 30 minutes of free play. Once launched, it starts a countdown timer from when you start the trial, rather than active playtime. At the end, Google asks if you’d like to purchase the game while saving your current progress, according to 9to5Google

Google has yet to officially mention the new option and there’s no word on whether it may expand to other games. You could, of course, trial any game available for free on the Pro tier with Google’s 30-minute free trial of Stadia Pro. It would be nice, though, for all users to be able to try any game before deciding to buy it.
