Microsoft Project xCloud Launches Tomorrow with Over 150 Games

Missing from the list of 150 games are EA's Play titles.

Cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will have support for over 150 games right from the start. Leveraging these connections and the open accessibility of Euronet's REV Payments Cloud, epay now will provide processing and settlement services between the two parties for sales of Games Pass Ultimate and Xbox All Access in the mobile operator's physical and online stores. It's not unlike a service like Google Stadia, this just has the backing of Microsoft and the impressive Xbox Game Pass library.

Meanwhile, thanks to Apple's App Store policies, the streaming service will only be available on Android phones and tablets.

Setting up Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on your phone is a straightforward process. At this time, xCloud isn't supported on iOS because of Apple's terms of service were too restrictive until earlier this month. Progress is shared via cloud saves on your account, so if you start a game through streaming you can pick up where you left off on your Xbox, or vice-versa.

As detailed before, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a subscription service that gives access to more than 100 games.

Customers will find a curated selection of games available in the Xbox Game Pass library, including popular Xbox Game Studios titles such as Tell Me Why, Grounded, Forza Horizon 4, and Battletoads, along with favorites from content partners like Spiritfarer, Untitled Goose Game, and Destiny 2. Will any of you be trying out xCloud when it rolls out tomorrow? The on-screen button layout is also customisable, so you can move the locations of virtual analog sticks if you're not happy with the default setup. It also features multiplayer and cross-play with PC players, if a game supports cross-play between that platform and Xbox One.

You'll soon be able to play Minecraft Dungeons with touch controls on mobile when the Project xCloud beta launches later today (September 15th).
