Microsoft’s Project xCloud is one of the most exciting cloud gaming services among all those currently available in the market. After being in the preview period, finally, Microsoft will be making it public with its new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which entitles you the benefit of using the Project xCloud at no additional cost.
Microsoft’s cloud gaming technology helps you play games without having to use your device hardware on any platform and that’s why even if you own a crappy hardware, you won’t have to upgrade your system anymore. After the public preview across North America, Europe and in South Korea, Microsoft has improved the gaming experience.
From September 15, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be able to play more than 100 games from the cloud via your Android device or tablet. This cloud gaming service will launch in beta for the exclusive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members accessible in 22 markets:
- Czech Republic,
- South Korea,
- United Kingdom, and
- United States
Sadly, the cloud gaming service won’t be available for Indian gamers as for now, but provided the fact Microsoft has its cloud servers in India, it should be rolling out in the country sometime later.
Microsoft also planned to partner with tech giant Jio for bringing the Project xCloud to India but no new developments have been announced, maybe, Jio’s upcoming 5G network could bring new light to the industry. Also, Jio has its own Gigabit Fiber internet, so a partnership via that medium might be in cards for Jio, who knows? Considering Jio’s capabilities, nothing can be guaranteed.
