Project xCloud Heads to Game Pass Ultimate Very Soon

Here's when Game Pass Ultimate members can start gaming on their mobile devices.

A little while back, we reported on Microsoft's plans to merge its Project xCloud streaming platform with Game Pass Ultimate. And Microsoft recently announced when that's actually going to happen: September 15.

Over 100 games will be available to play on xCloud, though Microsoft only mentioned a handful of them in their statement, including Destiny 2, Grounded, Minecraft Dungeons, and Sea of Thieves. Many are already included in Game Pass.

The idea is to make them playable on nearly any device and without having to access your console or TV to do it.

Microsoft said you can use xCloud on any Android device and jump back into the game the same as if you were playing at home. That includes multiplayer, achievement tracking, player profiles, and save data.

Project xCloud itself is free, included as part of your monthly Game Pass Ultimate subscription. And the company plans on releasing a number of control grips and accessories to make mobile gaming more comfortable and practical too.

We considered Project xCloud to be at the pinnacle of game streaming when we tried it out a short while ago. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Xbox news as it develops.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
