Today begins a new beta of Project xCloud on Android for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
Totally surprising, Microsoft has announced that it is intending to give Xbox Game Pass subscribers a chance to try Project xCloud early today, Tuesday 11 August, thanks to a new beta.
The house of Redmond company, according to what reported by The Verge, will launch a new version of the beta app of Xbox Game Pass for Android that includes the game streaming service.
Although Project xCloud is ready to officially debut on September 15, those who have a subscription to Game Pass Ultimate can download the application and try everything from today.
“As we approach the launch of cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on September 15, we’re entering a limited beta period to ensure a smooth transition of the cloud gaming experience to the Xbox Game Pass app on Android,” explained a spokesperson from Microsoft. “Existing Xbox Game Pass (Beta) app users will get the opportunity to test a subset of the available titles as we ready the experience for broader availability next month. This limited beta is critical to providing the best possible experience for members at launch and should not be considered indicative of the final experience or library.”
The Project xCloud beta won’t have all 100 games that will be available next month, but around 30 of those are expected to be playable. Microsoft is still planning to stop the Project xCloud Preview on September 11, 4 days before the general launch.
