After the announcement that Project xCloud was going to be a part of Game Pass Ultimate when it launches, Microsoft has shared more details on what players can expect from the service next month.
In an official announcement by Microsoft, Android phones and tablets will get first dibs on Project xCloud, which will boast of more than 100 games playable at launch, like Yakuza Kiwami 2, Gears 5, Minecraft Dungeons, and much more.
Staying true to the promise of bringing your legacy across generations, all your friends, achievements, controller settings, and saved game progress will be carried over as you play, giving players a seamless transition from platform to platform.
Along with this, Microsoft is teaming up with the likes of Razer, 8BitDo, PowerA, and Nacon for accessories that will level up your mobile gaming experience. Oh, and PlayStation DualShock 4 controllers will be compatible as well, along with the standard Xbox One Bluetooth Wireless controller.

We’ve tried xCloud and we were left impressed and hopeful with what the technology will mean for the future of gaming. The next generation is fast approaching and with it, fantastic offerings from both Sony and Microsoft that will only mean great games for the years ahead.
