Xbox has now confirmed over 100 games will be available to stream to your mobile devices from launch day, with more being added at a later date.

As detailed before, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a subscription service that gives access to more than 100 games. Racing fans will also find Forza Horizon 4 and F1 2019 in the list, and there's a real focus on shooters as well with Halo: MCC, Halo 5: Guardians, Gears 5, and Destiny 2 (available Sept 22). We've often said Game Pass is one of the best deals available at the moment, even without discounts, and it's certainly living up to it. The service is not exclusive to Galaxy mobile devices but Samsung fans who have pre-ordered a device from the Galaxy Note 20 or the Galaxy Tab S7 series have a head start over other Android smartphone owners. Game Pass usually costs $15/month, but new members only have to pony up a dollar for their first month. The full Xbox ecosystem, such as cloud saves, achievements, and multiplayer, will be available.

Notably missing from the list of games are EA Play titles.

It makes it easier for players to continue their games on different devices as well. After that, Microsoft will then ask $14.99 per month for access to Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass PC, Xbox Live Gold and the new Xbox Cloud Gaming service.

More than 150 games will be available for Xbox Games Pass Ultimate members via the cloud at no additional cost in 22 countries beginning September 15, Microsoft announced today. 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.

Thus, Microsoft has announced up to five new video games that will become part of the Xbox Game Pass catalog as of September 17 and throughout the following days, arriving in a staggered manner.
