(Pocket-lint) - Stadia Pro members not only get up to 4K HDR video streaming and 5.1 sound, they also get free games each month as part of their subscription.

Since launch, Pro members have received a mighty collection of top tier games, including Destiny 2, Zombie Army 4, Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Sniper Elite 4, Serious Sam and many more - all as part of the £8.99/$9.99 monthly fee.

And, with Stadia Pro available for free for a month to new members, that means everyone can enjoy them right now.

An amazing five free games will be available in October, so here are the titles you can play on the Stadia cloud gaming platform at no extra cost.

How to redeem your free Stadia Pro games

    To redeem this month's games (and any games still available as part of Stadia Pro membership) follow the instructions below:

    • Open the Stadia app on Android or iOS, or head to the Stadia webpage in Google Chrome.
    • Open the store through the tab at the bottom (phone) or top (Chrome browser).
    • If you are signed in you should see "Stadia Pro games" as the second scrollable menu.
    • Either tap or click on each game you are yet to claim and that will take you to their individual page.

    Note, games are often taken off the Stadia Pro list, so can no longer be redeemed afterwards. However, they remain in your library to play.
