A new feature will soon be a part of Xbox Game Pass' Ultimate membership.
Today it was announced on the Xbox Wire that Project xCloud will be brought to the Ultimate subscription of Xbox Game Pass this September. This addition to the service will not cost extra. Through Project xCloud, gamers will be able to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on their phones or tablets. Since Xbox Game Pass connects across devices, those playing on their phones or tablets will be able to play with all other Game Pass members around the world.
"Cloud gaming in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate means your games are no longer locked to the living room," stated Xbox boss Phil Spencer. "You can connect more than ever with friends and family through gaming. And just like you do with your movie and music streaming services, when cloud gaming launches into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can continue your game wherever you left off on any of your devices."
Four games were added to Xbox Game Pass earlier this month. The first two were Soul Calibur VI and CrossCode, which released on the console version of the service. The third game was Out of the Park Baseball 21, which released for the PC version of Game Pass. Finally, Fallout 76 was released for both the PC and console versions of the subscription service.
Xbox Game Pass comes in three forms. There is a console version, and a PC version. The console version is currently $9.99 a month, and let's console players access over 100 games on their Xbox. The PC version, which is currently $4.99 a month, allows gamers to play Xbox games on their PCs. Then there is the Ultimate plan, which runs for $14.99 a month. This plan allows gamers to play on both console and PC, and includes Xbox Live Gold.
