What you need to know

  • Super Bomberman R Online is now available to play, for free, for anyone, via Google Stadia.
  • Google Stadia Pro subscription is not required at all.
  • You can play the game right now in your web browser with a free Stadia account right here.

Super Bomberman R Online is only the second game to be available entirely for free to anyone and everyone on Google Stadia starting today, joining Destiny 2: New Light. All you need to play right now is an active Google account, so you can sign into Stadia and jump into the game using a compatible web browser, the Stadia app, or a compatible Chromecast device.

Super Bomberman R Online is a multiplayer-focused battle royale-style version of the classic Bomberman formula that pits 64 players against one another in a massive map to battle it out and be the last bomber standing. It even features a litany of iconic character skins from the wide range of Konami properties, such as Snake from Metal Gear Solid, Pyramid Head from Silent Hill, and even Castlevania characters. There's even a Bomber Pass with cosmetic rewards and emotes to equip as you level up, just like you'd find in other free-to-play battle royale games such as Fortnite. It's exclusive to Stadia, so if you want to play, you'll need to use the cloud gaming service.

If you have a Stadia account, clicking this link should automatically launch the game in your browser. Previously the game was included in the Stadia Pro subscription as recently as this past September, but is now available for free for anyone to play using Stadia. You can play Stadia in your web browser using any game controller or your keyboard and mouse.
