Cloud Gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Launches with More Than 150 Games

Today, I’m pleased to share the initial launch line-up of more than 150 games that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can play via the cloud in 22 countries starting September 15 at no additional cost. You will find a fantastic, curated selection of games available in the Xbox Game Pass library, including popular Xbox Game Studios titles such as Tell Me Why, Grounded, Forza Horizon 4, and Battletoads, along with favorites from our content partners like Spiritfarer, Untitled Goose Game, and Destiny 2. Similar to Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC, you can expect the library to evolve over time based on members’ feedback, with new games added all the time.

As Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, you can discover the freedom and flexibility the cloud brings to your gaming experience. One of the key benefits of cloud gaming is that it gives you more choices in how to play. Because your Xbox profile resides in the cloud, you can easily continue your Wasteland 3 play through that you began on your living-room Xbox console on your Android phone or tablet. It’s perfect for those times when you want to get in a gaming session while away from home or when your shared TV or console is occupied. With the cloud, a game like Sea of Thieves can transform into a great couch co-op experience with multiple people playing across console, PC, and mobile devices in the same room.

Additionally, cloud gaming as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate now opens up the world of Xbox to those who may not own a console at all. With an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, gamers need only an Android phone or tablet and a supported controller to join in on the fun of Xbox gaming while enjoying the full benefits of the Xbox ecosystem. This includes friends, achievements, parties and voice chat, cloud saves and the ability to enjoy multiplayer with other gamers, irrespective of whether they are playing on console or via the cloud. You can also play with PC players in games where cross-play with Xbox One consoles is supported, such as Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5 and more.

Finally, cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate makes it easier than ever before to play games with your friends. Because members have access to a common library, members immediately have dozens of multiplayer games at their disposal that they can play together. And best of all, if you’re all playing together via the cloud, the games are all ready to go, so you and your friends can all jump in and start playing in seconds. Whether you’re playing with friends on an Xbox One, or if you’re playing with someone experiencing Xbox for the first time through cloud gaming on a mobile device, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate brings you together and makes for the best gaming experience.

I started Hotshot Racing last night. It’s a lot of fun. Quick question for anyone else who has tried it: when the screen goes dark in loading pauses, does it flicker different shades of black? Or is my TV playing up?

Looking forward to having a go at xcloud tomorrow. Picked up a Pixel 3a XL - my first android phone. Apple have missed a trick. They've lost at least one customer due to not letting this on their platform.

Quick question here.

I have Gamepass ultimate but don't have a PC so could I give my account details to someone I trust who has a PC but no xbox so they can use the PC stuff? Can both the PC and xbox be signed in at the same time so we could play multiplayer?

Hey everyone, quick question. Is the Xbox console streaming function now available to the masses? The game streaming app I’ve downloaded gives me a “not available in your ring” message which suggests it may still be in preview? Cheers.

Yep it's available to Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. It's the Xbox Game Pass app you want, a 'Cloud' section has been added to it:

Cheers for the quick response Garth. I might be missing something here (hence the question) but I was looking to stream a game I own on the Xbox console to an Android device elsewhere in the house.

I’m an Ultimate GamePass subscriber and have apps installed on an Android tablet (Xcloud tested and working on this) but I’m not clear how to see my own Xbox game library on the Android device? Am I missing something or is it not available outside the preview programme yet? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Yeah it's just the games that show up in the Cloud section of the app that are available to stream so far.

Hoping you guys can clarify something for me. I'm new to game pass but looking into it it looks great, however I updated my gold subscription in June. So I have 9 or so months left on it, I saw today there is an upgrade function where I can pay £1 to upgrade my xbox gold to ultimate pass. Which sounds great.

Couple of things that aren't too clear, will the remaining duration become ultimate pass without having to pay any more (i.e. I won't get charged £1 every month, or just the first month is upgraded at £1)? If so what will happen when it ends, will it renew or just expire? Or will it be based on the ratio on the link below, it reads as if that is just for gold codes where people already have ultimate pass?

Just want to check as the £1 upgrade seems like a great deal, especially with EA Play joining ultimate pass soon!

The remaining balance is upgraded for you. It's an insane deal, but you only get one shot at it. Highly recommended to stack Gold for three years before you do it, that's what everyone else has done (3 years is the maximum).

Ah, thanks! That is a good deal, I'll see if I can find a cheap 12 month gold code!

Doing that really does make Ultimate one of the best deals in gaming ever.
Even if all you got is Microsoft games it'd be good but the extra's and now EA access make it a bargain and a half.
I can see a whole lot of people only needing to buy a couple of extra games a year at most that won't be on the service and if they have the S it's a seriously cheap new generation.

I'm not trying to be an xbox fanboy as I'm getting a PS5 as well but the value of super cheap ultimate and a £250 console is a strong proposition from Microsoft.

It'll be hard for Sony to match that let alone come up with a better deal.
