Microsoft’s xCloud has officially launched with over 150 titles for Android gamers


When Microsoft first announced that its Project xCloud would launch on Android phones and tablets on September 15th, I posed the question that debuting with over 100 titles would represent a clear and present danger to Google’s Stadia streaming service. Now that the day has come, and ‘Xbox Cloud Gaming’ has actually got more than 150 games on offer thanks to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Stadia is beginning to look like it’s dead in the water.

The initial line-up of more than 150 games can be played by Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members via the xCloud service in 22 countries from today onwards at no extra cost. So if you were already paying for a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, there is no additional cost. Also, don’t forget that EA Play is being added to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate before the end of 2020, again at no extra charge.

If you don’t actually own an Xbox, don’t worry because you don’t need one to play the games on offer, all you need is a compatible smartphone or tablet, a supported game controller, and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Oh, and WiFi, of course. You’ll be able to enjoy the same experience as someone with an Xbox console, and you’ll even be able to play with PC players in games that support cross-play such as Forze Horizon 4 and Gears 5.

A subscription to the awkwardly named Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $15 monthly although you can pick up a month’s trial for just $1 if you are a new subscriber by signing up here.

He’s been an Android fan ever since owning an HTC Hero, with the Dell Streak being his first phablet. He currently carries an OPPO Find X2 Pro in his pockets, a Galaxy Tab S5e in his backpack, and thinks nothing of lugging a 17-inch laptop around the world. When not immersed in the world of Android and gadgets, he’s an avid sports fan, and like all South Africans, he loves a good Braai (BBQ).
