Project xCloud

Project xCloud will join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in September at no additional cost, Microsoft announced.

The cloud gaming service allows users to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on a smartphone or tablet along with the nearly 100 million Xbox Live players around the world, including the holiday-due Halo Infinite.

Microsoft also reaffirmed that Xbox Game Studios titles released “in the next couple of years” will be playable on both Xbox Series X and Xbox One, and that “it is our intent for all Xbox One games that do not require Kinect to play on Xbox Series X at the launch of the console.” Most of said games “will load faster and look and perform many times better.”

Xbox Series X is due out this holiday.
