xCloud joins Xbox Game Pass this September at no additional cost for Ultimate subscribers

By Sean Carey,
Microsoft has finally unveiled more about the full launch of its game streaming service Project xCloud. In a blog post over on Xbox Wire, Phil Spencer revealed that Project xCloud is set to join Xbox Game Pass this September at no extra cost to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.

Project xCloud will join Xbox Game Pass

When Project xCloud launches in select countries this September, the service will feature over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles that can be played on mobile phones or tablets. Microsoft has not confirmed if the current games available in the Preview will be a part of the service when it launches. As of yet, it's unclear exactly what countries will be getting the service, but it's likely to be those that are currently included in the current Project xCloud preview.

If you're an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, xCloud will be included in the cost of your subscription, and you won't have to pay anything extra to take your games on the go. The Xbox Wire post from Spencer reads:
"Finally, today we're announcing that this September, in supported countries, we're bringing Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud together at no additional cost for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. With cloud gaming in Game Pass Ultimate, you will be able to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on your phone or tablet. And because Xbox Live connects across devices, you can play along with the nearly 100 million Xbox Live players around the world. So when Halo Infinite launches, you and your friends can play together and immerse yourselves in the Halo universe as Master Chief—anywhere you go and across devices."
The Project xCloud preview has expanded into numerous countries across the world. Eleven European countries were recently added to the Android preview along with Canada. According to a report, Project xCloud's servers will be upgraded with Xbox Series X next year.
