Today Microsoft announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can expect to be able to enjoy Project xCloud at no additional cost.
The integration will start in September, promising the ability to play Xbox Game Pass titles on phone or tablet, or anywhere xCloud will be available.
Of course, the usual integration with Xbox Live will be available, so you’ll have everything within the usual Xbox ecosystem.
That’s certainly a vast amount of freedom to choose where and how you play your favorite Xbox Game Pass titles, likely further removing any friction in trying new things since you don’t need to download them.
Here’s the full message.
You will get more from your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership. Finally, today we’re announcing that this September, in supported countries, we’re bringing Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud together at no additional cost for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. With cloud gaming in Game Pass Ultimate, you will be able to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on your phone or tablet. And because Xbox Live connects across devices, you can play along with the nearly 100 million Xbox Live players around the world. So when Halo Infinite launches, you and your friends can play together and immerse yourselves in the Halo universe as Master Chief—anywhere you go and across devices.
Xbox Game Pass offers over 100 games that enter and leave the service on an ongoing basis, with the Ultimate version also including PC games and Xbox Live Gold.
