Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: xCloud has Over 100 Games Coming To Android in September

The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is Microsoft’s latest SKU to promote its xCloud service. It will give you access to a library of more than 100 games for Xbox and PC. Additionally, it will also give you access to the xCloud gaming service that is coming to Android. In a recent announcement, the company mentions that the Game Pass Ultimate will be available on September 15, 2020.

The official announcement on the Xbox Wire reads,

Cloud gaming as part of Xbox Game Pass is the next major step in our ongoing vision to put you at the center of the experience, to give you more value from your games and membership, and to remove the barriers from play. Last month we laid out our commitment to you and announced cloud gaming, powered by Project xCloud, will be part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at no additional cost.”

Phil Spencer had mentioned in an interview that the Xbox Series X console was no longer the ‘star’ of Microsoft’s gaming strategy. There was also a recent design change in the branding of the Game Pass which pointed towards it being treated as a separate entity.

Wait, there’s more. The upcoming xCloud service will kick off on September 15th in select countries only (22 for starters). This will further expand into different markets over the course of time. Microsoft also announced its partnership with Razer, Nancon, PowerA, and 8BitDo. These will create accessories designed specifically for xCloud gaming. In a very surprising bit of news, Microsoft also announced that the xCloud games will be compatible with PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controllers.

There was speculation around Xbox Game Pass coming to PlayStation in the near future. While that may take some time, the compatibility with DualShock 4 sure seems like a step in that direction. The Game Pass Ultimate is now available for an introductory price of $1 for the first month and $14.99 second month onwards.

Microsoft may still have big plans for its xCloud service. Stay tuned for further updates.
