XCloud streaming comes to Game Pass Ultimate tomorrow, supports over 150 titles

The update will be available in 22 countries including Austria, Italy, and South Korea, and will include a mix of Xbox exclusives and non-exclusive titles such as Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Destiny 2, and the Untitled Goose Game. Now just £21.99 for 3-months of membership, this is an impressive discount when you consider the entire Ultimate service costs £10.99 per month normally. For now, it also appears that xCloud will only be available via Game Pass Ultimate and not as a standalone subscription, or in a bundle with just Game Pass for Console or PC. Through cloud gaming, Galaxy smartphone and tablet owners can play a variety of titles on their mobile devices as long as they have the Xbox Game Pass app installed and a compatible controller.

Earlier today, Microsoft finally pulled back the curtain on the entire launch lineup for their cloud streaming service: Xcloud. Nisshagen says that Minecraft Dungeons played via xCloud will "feel like it was designed specifically for mobile, bringing a level of familiarity to those who've been playing mobile games or Minecraft on a phone or tablet for years".

You'll need to download the Xbox Game Pass (Beta) app in order to play, we've included a link to the Google Play Store page, here. 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.

Now called the less snappy Cloud Gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the service will offer over 150 Xbox One games to be played over a data connection on an Android device.

Beginning on the 15th of September, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will get unhindered access to xCloud streaming. Microsoft has announced that EA Play titles are being added to Project xCloud, but they will not be playable till the holidays.
