Microsoft Gives More Details About Cloud Streaming Series X Games To Older Consoles

Microsoft­’s Xbox Cloud Gam­ing Ser­vice, once know as xCloud, will offi­cial­ly be head­ing to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S con­soles this hol­i­day for Game Pass Ulti­mate sub­scribers. Of course, this will allow users to play games via stream­ing instead of hav­ing to down­load a game.

Over 100 Game Pass titles will be playable on the ser­vice when it debuts, includ­ed games like Sea of Thieves and Minecraft Dun­geons. Play­ers will also be able to hop right into mul­ti­play­er ses­sions when receiv­ing an invite, no installs required.

Games playable via this ser­vice will be updat­ed to include a small cloud icon in the bot­tom right cor­ner of its icons on con­soles, as men­tioned in the new Xbox Wire post. Then just press play to get start­ed on your adventure.

The fea­ture will let Xbox One users enjoy Xbox Series X|S con­sole-exclu­sive game like Microsoft Flight Sim­u­la­tor through stream­ing. How­ev­er, this fea­ture won’t be avail­able at launch. That will even­tu­al­ly arrive and make the wait for a cur­rent-gen con­sole a lit­tle more tol­er­a­ble. No details on when this abil­i­ty would released.

Test­ing for Xbox Cloud Gam­ing on con­soles will come to the Xbox Insid­er pro­gram this fall before its full launch lat­er in the year. Games played while using the ser­vice will sup­port 1080p res­o­lu­tion at 60fps.

Microsoft recent­ly announced the ini­tia­tive to use Xbox Cloud Gam­ing to bring mil­lions of play­ers more games from cur­rent-gen con­soles to the old­er gen­er­a­tions. They also have plans to use Cloud Gam­ing to bring con­sole games to PC users.
