Resident Evil Village is coming to Google Stadia – with a free Stadia Premiere Edition

After the success of their Cyberpunk 2077 giveaway promotion Google are at it again, and if you pre-order the upcoming Resident Evil Village on Google Stadia you’ll nab a free Stadia Premiere Edition pack to play it on!

Resident Evil Village is the latest outing in Capcom’s iconic Resident Evil series, the series itself being Capcom’s most popular franchise of all time. It’s already got gamers hot under the collar after the 9ft-tall Lady Dimitrescu’s reveal, and the terrifying gameplay demo, but there’s clearly so much more to come.


Resident Evil Village focuses on the continuing narrative, with Ethan Winters transported to a remote snow-capped village stocked with all manner of horrific entities to keep you on your toes. Familiar faces like Chris Redfield return as well, keeping long-term fans happy and snug while everything goes to hell.

Resident Evil Village comes to Stadia, PS4/5, Xbox consoles and PC on May 7th. If you’re up for a spot of streaming when you pre-order before May 21 at midnight PT you’ll get a free Stadia Premiere Edition while supplies last (terms apply). That’s Resident Evil Village, a Stadia Controller, and a Chromecast Ultra – everything you’ll need to thwart Lady Dimitrescu for just the cost of the game ($59.99/£64.99/€69.99 for the Standard Edition or $69.99/£74.99/€79.99 for the Deluxe Edition).
