This week Microsoft has revealed more details about its new Project xCloud game streaming technology that in the near future will offer “you the freedom to play on the device you want without being locked to a particular device, empowering YOU, the gamers, to be at the centre of your gaming experience” says Microsoft. Watch the videos below to learn more about the Microsoft Project xCloud streaming service.
The Project xCloud game streaming is currently in its development stage and Microsoft is hoping to carry out public trial sometime during 2019. Microsoft has already enabled compatibility with existing and future Xbox games by building data centres specifically for Project xCloud that are equipped with custom hardware. “We know we must make it easy for developers to bring their content to Project xCloud. Developers of the more than 3,000 games available on Xbox One today, and those building the thousands that are coming in the future, will be able to deploy and dramatically scale access to their games across all devices on Project xCloud with no additional work”.
“Cloud game-streaming is a multi-faceted, complex challenge. Unlike other forms of digital entertainment, games are interactive experiences that dynamically change based on player input. Delivering a high-quality experience across a variety of devices must account for different obstacles, such as low-latency video streamed remotely, and support a large, multi-user network. In addition to solving latency, other important considerations are supporting the graphical fidelity and framerates that preserve the artist’s original intentions, and the type of input a player has available.”
Project xCloud will make game streaming possible on the current 4G networks and will dynamically scale to adopts the faster 5G networks as they roll out globally.
