Microsoft’s game streaming service Project xCloud will begin its first public preview in October. Sign-ups are currently live but it will be limited to the United States, United Kingdom and Korea. Available games include Halo 5: Guardians, Gears 5, Sea of Thieves and Killer Instinct.
The service will grow and update over time though initially, you’ll need an Android phone or tablet to access it. An Xbox One controller is also required, of course. Being able to stream games from one’s console is also part of the plan though it will likely take some time before players can access the over 3,500 Xbox One games available.
As you’d expect, you can play on your Xbox One and continue game progress on your phone with the power of xCloud. With Google Stadia launching in November, Microsoft is looking to get ahead of the curve with xCloud. Stay tuned for more details from the current Inside Xbox stream.
