Next month Microsoft will be launching a public beta for Project xCloud, an Xbox game streaming service in a number of selected countries which was announced during Xbox Inside.
Project xCloud Xbox Streaming Service Launches Public Beta October 2019
Project xCloud will be getting a public beta test for the Xbox game streaming service. Announced about a year ago, the service allows Xbox games to be streamed to other devices such as mobile phones or tablets. This means you can play titles such as Sea of Thieves on a variety of devices. In order for this to work you will need a compatible device and a Bluetooth Xbox controller.
The first locations to get to try out xCloud will be UK, US and Korea. If you want to sign up you can from today. So far this is for Android only.
So what kind of games will be up for the beta? The first titles include Halo 5: Guardians, Gears 5, Killer Instinct and Sea of Thieves, with more games coming in the future. Access to the games will be free for those who take part in the program.
Microsoft have yet to unveil when xCloud will leave its testing stage or what kind business model it will adopt. So far Microsoft have said that the testing phase will last “until customers are consistently reporting a great, fun experience and the technology meets our internal quality standards.”
Project xCloud public beta is currently available for sign up starting with UK, US and Korea.
