New xCloud games include Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Batman: Arkham Knight also among five titles added to Microsoft’s cloud gaming service
Microsoft has added five new games to its Project xCloud preview, including Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
The other new additions to the cloud gaming service are Batman: Arkham Knight, Mortal Kombat X, Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham and Pillars of Eternity.
Project xCloud users can play Xbox games on their Android phone or tablet directly from the cloud, including Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4.
Microsoft opened registration for xCloud’s preview in September 2019, before launching the following month with four games.
It expanded the xCloud public preview with 50 more games in November. Following today’s additions, Xbox’s website lists 99 titles available through xCloud.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in late April that xCloud had hundreds of thousands of users.
In 2020, xCloud users will be able to stream Xbox games they already own from the cloud, as well as Xbox Game Pass titles.
And Microsoft is reportedly working on a feature that will allow users to stream PC games across xCloud. In theory, it will allow users to stream PC games to their Xbox console and play them in the living room.
