Microsoft Will Launch xCloud Streaming To Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for Free in September

Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox at Microsoft, announced today that, as of September 2020, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will also include access to the cloud gaming at no additional cost.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users will, therefore, be able to play over 100 titles available on the Xbox Game Pass from their mobile device directly from the cloud. In addition, the post published on the official blog confirmed some commitments made by Xbox towards the players for the phase of transition to the next generation of consoles and video games.

The next-generation console of Microsoft, in fact, will be decidedly different from those that preceded it and will be characterized by the diffusion of new game modes, such as cloud gaming and subscription services, but also by new opportunities to play with your friends on different platforms:

  • Players will always be welcome: A commitment from Microsoft that is based both on community support, allowing all developers to bring their content to the Xbox platform, and on technological innovation to combat hate speech and toxic behavior.
  • Players will not be forced to move to the next-gen: The Xbox Game Studios titles that will arrive in the coming years will be playable on both Xbox Series X and Xbox One and the company will continue to support cross-play so that gamers can have fun with their friends regardless of the platform or the generation of consoles used.
  • Thanks to Smart Delivery technology, players will be able to buy titles once and play on different generations of consoles at no additional cost. Highly anticipated titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077 will support Smart Delivery.
  • Xbox Game Studios titles will be playable from the day of launch on the Xbox Game Pass.

Here is also a part of Phil Spencer ‘s message, which you can find on Xbox Wire:

The future of gaming has never been more exciting and limitless. It’s a future you’ll explore on your terms, not constrained by restrictive policies. Where your gaming legacy will not be left behind and where you will not be locked out of new exclusive Xbox Game Studios games even if you choose to stay with your current console for a while.

It’s a future where you and your friends play the most immersive, responsive, and vivid games together on every screen in your life, and where games reach across the world and bring you stories you’ve never experienced before. It’s a future in which you get more value from your games. And where everyone is welcome.
