As of mid-September, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 22 countries can play over 100 games on Android devices via the cloud using a compatible controller.
Microsoft says touch controls “have been one of the top-requested features for cloud gaming” and last month it introduced them for Minecraft Dungeons.
Today it has added touch controls to 10 more titles: Dead Cells, Gucamelee! 2, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Hotshot Racing, Killer Instinct, New Super Lucky’s Tale, Slay The Spire, Streets of Rage 4, Tell Me Why, and UnderMine.
Xbox touch controls enable players to do everything with just two digits and choose where to position the controls on the screen.
“With the team at Ninja Theory we worked on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice to integrate the controls and how they show up in different scenarios and game modes,” she said. “As a result, you’ll see the controls change as you move around and fighting controls will appear when you encounter the Northmen.
“For other games, we added touch controls without modifying the existing game. In Hotshot Racing we added a touch-controlled throttle that provides the same control that you would get from analog triggers on a controller. Just tap the handbrake button, spin the wheel, and you’ll find yourself drifting around the track in no time. In New Super Lucky’s Tale, the controls will feel very familiar and will even take on a little bit of Lucky’s personality.”
Rainbow Six Siege joined Xbox Game Pass for console and Android today, while Grim Fandango Remastered, Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Full Throttle Remastered will join Xbox Game Pass for console, PC and Android on October 29.
