Microsoft’s video game streaming technology, Project xCloud, will hit Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on September 15th, at no additional cost for members. The initial rollout covers 22 countries across North America, Europe and South Korea, and gives you access to over 100 games, including Destiny 2, Gears 5, Minecraft: Dungeons, The Outer Worlds, Sea of Thieves and Yakuza Kiwami 2.
Microsoft revealed in July that xCloud would be rolled into Game Pass Ultimate in September, but didn’t give us an exact date or specific titles. Today, Microsoft listed the names of 36 games heading to Game Pass Ultimate via xCloud.
Project xCloud makes Xbox console games playable on Android smartphones and tablets, streamed in over WiFi or cellular data. It’s been in beta since October of 2019, and it’s proven to be one of the most consistent, steadily-growing streaming services.
Game Pass Ultimate costs $15 a month, and it gives you access to a massive game library on Xbox consoles, PC and Android devices, plus Gold multiplayer services. There’s also a basic version of Game Pass for consoles, which costs $10 a month, and a separate version for PC, which is on sale right now for $5 a month.
XCloud will be available via Game Pass Ultimate in 22 countries at launch, and those are: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
