If you thought that it was just Xbox and PlayStation owners who get freebies, you’d be mistaken.
Despite all of its downfalls – and there are a fair few you can choose from – Google Stadia does have one redeeming factor; the amount of free games offered with the Stadia Pro subscription is impressive.
Of course, you actually have to be a member of the Stadia Pro service to get these games, but we’ll gloss over that.
For anyone signed up for Stadia Pro, here are your free games for January;

El Hijo – A Wild West Tale
Published by: HandyGames
“El Hijo – A Wild West Tale is an exciting spaghetti-western stealth game, in which you guide a six-year-old boy on his quest to find his mother.
El Hijo is a non-violent stealth game, replacing violence with the mischievous, playfulness of a young child. One core element of the gameplay is ‘El Hijo’ using the shadows to his advantage to hide from outlaws. The gameplay is extended naturally, as variations of existing mechanics are gradually introduced and then combined to increase the challenge. These twists on familiar mechanics are often a product of the varied environments that the boy must traverse to reach his ultimate goal: Freedom”.Stadia
