As the first EA Sports title to make the move to cloud gaming platform Google Stadia, players will now be able to enjoy the full NFL experience across multiple devices.

Madden NFL 21 hits Google Stadia today

Originally released back in October 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Madden NFL 21 is the latest in EA's long-running American football franchise.

Now, those without a console can also play on Google Stadia, marking the first time EA has brought one of its flagship sports franchises to the platform. 

To celebrate the release, and to tie-in to the NFL Pro Bowl weekend, Stadia Pro subscribers can play Madden for free between January 28 and February 1. 

Google Stadia offers two tiers of membership. The free version allows you to play Destiny 2: New Light and Super Bomberman R Online, as well as purchase and keep games.

The Pro version, which costs $9.99 per month, offers players a list of free games, including Hitman 1 and 2, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and F1 2020. 

Games that can be purchased include Cyberpunk 2077, DOOM Eternal, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Marvel's Avengers

New Stadia users can also take advantage of a free month's trial of Stadia Pro when they sign up, allowing them to play in up to 4K resolution at 60fps. Simply go to the website and sign in with a Gmail account.
