Microsoft xCloud Game Streaming Launching as Free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perk

From PC Mag: Microsoft’s game streaming service, xCloud, will arrive first as a free perk for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

The company will bundle xCloud with the $14.99 monthly game pass plan in September, according to Xbox head Phil Spencer. Subscribers in the US, UK, Canada, and South Korea—where xCloud is currently supported—will be able to stream games at no extra cost.

“Cloud gaming in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate means your games are no longer locked to the living room,” Spencer wrote in a blog post focused on the future of Xbox gaming.

Currently, the service is available as a public preview, enabling people to play Xbox games without the need to own the console hardware. With xCloud, Microsoft is able to stream the game experience over an internet connection to your smartphone or tablet.
