Microsoft has announced that the Xcloud game streaming service will launch in 22 countries on September 15 for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. In a new Xbox Wire post, it was revealed that xCloud will be coming to the following countries at launch:
- Czech Republic
- South Korea
- Sweden, Switzerland
- United Kingdom
- United States
The announcement also came included with a new video showcasing controller support on mobile devices. Xbox has confirmed that in addition to the official Xbox controllers, you can also use your DualShock 4 to play xCloud on your android device.
As far as mobile is concerned, xCloud will only launch on Android with no mention of iOS in sight. Given how strict Apple’s app store policies are, we don’t expect the xCloud app to be available there any time soon.
The xCloud game streaming service was recently merged in the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. All new and existing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be able to enjoy xCloud. Game Pass Ultimate subscription starts as low as $1 for the first month, with a regular monthly price of $14.99 onwards.
