Project XCloud And What It Can Do For Us


Microsoft has announced its new game-streaming service, Project xCloud and it is coming to Xbox Game Pass later this year.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer posted on Xbox Wire that xCloud will be coming to Xbox Game Pass when it launches later this year.

He went on to say:

” We’re excited by the response to Xbox Game Pass and yesterday we announced that Game Pass now has over 10 million members from 41 countries worldwide.”

So, what exactly is xCloud you ask? Well xCloud will allow players to play Xbox games on their mobile phone or tablet directly from the cloud.

Some of the big titles you will be able to play via xCloud will be Devil May Cry 5, Tekken 7, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, and many others.

Project xCloud streams games directly from the cloud to a player’s mobile device and does not require an Xbox console.

Players will be able to stream games directly with no downloads required.

Unfortunately, “Touch Controls” will not be supported yet so you will need an Xbox controller with Bluetooth support if you wish to play on your mobile device.

Microsoft says:

“While this will be a multi-year journey to deliver at the scale and quality that we want, we have begun a public preview so we can learn more from a high volume of real-world use-case scenarios.”

All in all, it sounds like this is going to be a huge step forward in the future of gaming and we can’t wait to see how xCloud evolves after this “testing” period.
