Microsoft has been testing its Project xCloud gaming streaming platform for a long time now. Today, Microsoft has finally announced what’s new with this service. As explained by the company, xCloud will be available to the public in September to complement the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($14.99/month). The xCloud will only be available through Game Pass Ultimate at launch. Also Read - Microsoft buys developers of Fallout, Wolfenstein, Doom, Elder Scrolls ahead of Xbox sales

Moreover, access to Microsoft Xbox Game Pass allows you to play a Rotary library of over 100 games on demand, and a selection of exclusive benefits and discounts.

Although Microsoft has revealed the launch window, in an interview with The Verge, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said, “We don’t actually have the final name yet, but it won’t be Project xCloud.” Besides, a very limited trial with Halo: The Masterchief Collection is available for iOS. The xCloud beta is only available on Android smartphones and tablets. Also Read - Microsoft's Your Phone App gets new features with the latest update

“We want to bring xCloud, eventually, to every screen that someone can stream games to. Right now, we’re just saying mobile,” said Spencer. He further stated, “there are discussions going on and we’re working through things. We’ll talk more specifically about which mobile devices through August and the September launch.”

Microsoft plans for the rollout

It also remains to be seen what kind of support xCloud will have for third-party drivers and accessories. Before xCloud goes public in September, Microsoft plans to showcase more xCloud games as part of its Xbox Series X event next week. The offering of this service as part of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one more way to add value to the premium model of Microsoft game passes. This is quite attractive in themselves, but will only improve the perception of users when choosing this type of game pass.
