Google really wants you to buy Cyberpunk 2077 on Stadia — so much, in fact, that it’s giving away a Stadia Premiere kit to each person who preorders (or who has already preordered) the game on Stadia or buys it after launch until December 17th. The promotion runs “until supplies last,” though Google declined to say how many units it will be giving out.
The hardware bundle that usually costs $100 includes a white Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra, and, for new users, a one-month trial subscription to Stadia’s Pro-tier service. Stadia Pro includes 4K streaming and a growing collection of free games similar to Sony’s PlayStation Plus and Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold subscriptions.
To redeem the deal, you’ll need a Stadia account, though you don’t need to be a paid subscriber. Then, head to Cyberpunk 2077’s product page and purchase the game. If you have a Stadia Pro subscription, you can save $10 on the game if you haven’t already used that promo.
For preorders, you’ll receive an email containing a code to redeem your free Premiere kit within a week of the game’s launch, so keep a lookout for that. If you buy the game post-launch, you should get an email containing a code if Google still has a supply of the free kits available.
Google says that your kit will take several weeks to ship, which means you probably won’t have it in hand when Cyberpunk 2077 actually launches. Also, it says your shipment may or may not arrive prior to the holidays. Thankfully, there are other ways to play Stadia with controllers you might already own, including on your phone or through your PC’s Chrome browser. So just because your complimentary hardware won’t arrive for a while doesn’t mean you can’t play the game on launch day.
