Microsoft xCloud Game Streaming Now Available, Includes Forza Horizon 4

Microsoft xCloud Game Streaming Now Available, Includes Forza Horizon 4”

From September 15, subscribers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will have the ability to use xCloud on mobile and tablet devices.

There's a huge list of games supported -too many for us to reasonably list here- so check out the full list here on the Xbox website alongside details with all 22 countries the service will be supported in, but alongside the obvious Xbox Game Studios titles we can tell you there's also plenty of third party offerings such as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2, Untitled Goose Game and many, many more.

If you've been unsure about Game Pass Ultimate and are eager to jump in to xCloud, you can get your first month subscription for just $1, with the regular subscription price at $14.99 per month. However, the component that makes cloud gaming possible is not available everywhere Xbox Game Pass Ultimate was released. Among the 22 countries that the service is available include: US, Canada, most of Europe, UK, and South Korea.

The service supports cloud saves, which means players will be able to continue their progress on a game played on console when they switch to their phone, as well as cross-platform play in supported titles.

Meanwhile, thanks to Apple's App Store policies, the streaming service will only be available on Android phones and tablets. Apple wants the games that will be available to stream with Project xCloud (or Google Stadia) to also be available as standalone packages within the App Store.

As detailed before, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a subscription service that gives access to more than 100 games.

In a response to a query over the changes from The Verge, Microsoft snubbed the new policy and said it will deliver a "bad experience for customers".
