Google apparently heard the cries for more and better deals on Stadia Games. This morning, I noted that the Grid Ultimate Edition, which normally retails for $84.99, is on sale for $34 - a savings of $50.99.
Here are all the goodies that you get with the Ultimate Edition, in addition to the core game:
"Be an Ultimate Edition GRID player to get 6 months of premium content including: 99 extra Career events (33 per season), 12 new cars (4 per season) & Seasonal rewards*: Season 1 (Hot Hatch Showdown), Season 2 (Track Day Supercars), Season 3 (Track Day Hypercars). 5 Grid Edition Carbon Liveries (each with added XP boost): Aston Martin Vantage GT4, Pontiac Firebird Modified, Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Time Attack, Renault R26. 10 player cards, 10 player banners, 10 extra unique liveries, VIP status."
In other news, Google must have brought some of their magical servers online somewhere near my place yesterday, because holy hell, it was running great last night. I am keeping a close eye on the Stadia - it is the most interesting story in gaming right now as far as I'm concerned - and plan to continue following up on the platform's status and functionality in more detail soon. But for right now - yowza - I'm one step closer to fully convinced.
