Project xCloud's Streaming Lineup Expands With New Games

Destiny 2, The Master Chief Collection, and more are all part of the Project xCloud streaming lineup as the service continues its test phase.

Though Project xCloud is still only in beta, the games streaming service already has 83 games in its catalog. The increase comes as a dozen new games were just added by Microsoft. They cover a wide range of genres. 

The new lineup includes a number of Telltale titles, which goes against the norm considering the studio's demise. Some other digital services have been jettisoning those games instead. For fans of those games, though, their inclusion in the xCloud lineup is a boon. 

Other games, such as SUPERHOT, Destiny 2, The Surge, and Sid Meier's Civilization 6 also make appearances. Here's the full list of newly added xCloud titles:

Several of those games are currently available through the growing Xbox Game Pass library, although Project xCloud and Game Pass are two separate entities at this point.

Game Pass notably has a monthly fee and currently supports installing games on Xbox One and PC. The two services are expected to eventually become compatible with each other, however, and may merge in some way.

At the moment, Project xCloud remains free, though in beta. If you get into the beta, you can play all the available games at no cost, However, the service is currently only available for a small number of player testers. Potential applicants need a compatible Android mobile device, a wireless Xbox One controller, and a stable wi-fi connection to take part.
