On Android, of course. Public testing of xCloud, Microsoft’s cloud powered gaming service is well underway, even though only a handful of video games have been available for it.
But all that changes today, as the company has added 5 more games today.
There are well over 50 games now available. A solid number, some may say, but considering we have been at it since October, testers expected the company to up this count massively in order to improve the cloud service in the direction it must be.
The service is still in preview and therefore free to use, and who can say no to more games, right?
Major Nelson announced the good news, confirming that these 5 titles can be played starting today:
- A Plague Tale: Innocence
- Age of Wonders: Planetfall
- Cities: Skylines
- Journey to the Savage Planet
What’s not so radical is that these are exclusive to the Android client.
The recently launched xCloud preview on iOS is still limited to just one game, that being Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Microsoft blamed this limitation on Apple and its App Store policies, though it stopped shy of providing more details on what this limitation was exactly.
Or how it plans to get around it.
Nevertheless, Android users have more games to play in the meantime, and that’s always good.
What’s even better is that an xCloud client will be coming to Windows sometime this year, very soon as a matter of pure fact. And that will allow even more users to jump in and see how well the Microsoft cloud can stream them some games.
