Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Project xCloud Access Coming on 15th September

Xbox Store

Microsoft is competing with companies including Google and Nvidia that are also investing in cloud-based gaming services.

xCloud lets users play high-powered Xbox games such as Halo on their smartphones. xCloud will be coming to Windows 10 as well as the Xbox platform. Your saves, controller settings, achievements, and even your friends list will be migrated across the cloud-which means that you can pick up where you left off seamlessly.

The service is now available on Xbox One and Windows 10, though that's expanding to mobile with the launch of xCloud.

The latest step in Microsoft's ambitious Project xCloud gaming technology coup will be rolled out across North America, Europe and South Korea from September 15, allowing you to play games like Destiny 2, Minecraft Dungeons and Gears 5 on your Android devices.

What is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate/Project xCloud? One such innovation is that from September 15th, players will be able to access Xbox Game Pass from the Samsung Galaxy Store.

In addition, Microsoft is also partnering with Razer, PowerA, 8BitDo, and Nacon to create accessories and controllers that are ready for xCloud. Microsoft is pretty emphatic with this message, stating that "Xbox Series X is compatible with ALL Xbox One controllers across ALL games".

Among features of the new store is the ability to discover new games and apps more easily, and the ability to watch trailers inline while searching or browsing.

Cloud gaming will become available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate beginning September 15 and requires a compatible controller to play. Meaning you can instantly play the Game Pass titles whether you're on Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, or 5G connections.
