The Premiere Edition of Stadia doesn't include Buddy Pass anymore. It solely comes with a Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra, and the opportunity to grab a nickname ahead of the full release in 2020, when Stadia Base will be available, and you won't require any additional hardware to join the platform.
Stadia Pro, the only way you can reach Stadia at the time being, also offers two free games per month. The subscription has launched with Destiny 2 and Samurai Shodown, while in December, it will add Farming Simulator 19 and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition.
