Cloud Gaming Comes to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Tomorrow With Over 150 Games

Written By

Microsoft has revealed over 150 games which will be available as part of its cloud gaming streaming service through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Interestingly, Microsoft appears to have completely ditched the "Project xCloud" name, making no mention of it at all in the announcement as it brings the streaming service in under the Xbox Game Pass branding. From tomorrow, you'll be able to play a huge selection of titles through the Xbox Game Pass app on any Android phone or tablet, using the same save files across console and cloud.

Games available include Batman: Arkham Knight, Battletoads, Carrion, Darksiders III, DayZ, Destiny 2, Fallout 76, Gato Roboto, Gears 5, Grounded, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Hollow Knight, Nier: Automata, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Resident Evil 7, The Outer Worlds, Yakuza Zero and over one hundred more games. For the full list, check out Xbox Wire here.

Microsoft is also experimenting with full touch controls, which you can see in action in Minecraft Dungeons in the video down below, which is perfect if you don't fancy carrying around an entire Xbox controller every time you want to stream games on your phone. This isn't as simple as just moving controller buttons to a screen, and instead is fully optimised with "native touch controls and a redesigned UI" as well as custom layouts and overlays, meaning this version of the game will feel as if it was designed specifically for mobile.

"This is just the beginning: the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate team will continue to work with developers to add touch to even more titles soon after cloud gaming goes live on September 15," Microsoft explained.

The service formerly known as Project xCloud has been available in beta for all Android phone users for a while now, and we've only heard good things, but the full launch tomorrow will be the real test. Unfortunately for iPhone users, Apple is still stubbornly not allowing game streaming apps on its platform without every game going through Apple's own authentication, meaning it's unlikely we'll see Xbox's cloud gaming on iOS devices anytime soon.

Cloud gaming comes to the Xbox Game Pass app tomorrow on Android phones - if you try it, let us know what you think down in the comments.
