Microsoft have officially confirmed that their game streaming service Project xCloud will be available to all Game Pass Ultimate users at no additional cost.

Project xCloud, Microsoft's game streaming service which soft-launched in October last year, and it is yet to be widely available, will be free to all Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. This has been confirmed today, by Microsoft in the latest post over at Xbox official website.

"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," Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox wrote.

This is, of course, huge news for everyone who owns Game Pass Ultimate subscription. It means over 100 titles from Xbox Game Pass catalogue will be available on your phone or tablet. Neat.

Spencer once again reiterated that every Xbox Game Studios title will be available on Xbox Game Pass on launch including the heavy hitters like Halo Infinite, new Forza games, Age of Empires, Gears of War, Hellblade and more.

Xbox will talk more about these and other brand new IPs at the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase, which is scheduled for July 23, 2020. Spencer confirmed that Xbox Game Studios are currently working on new franchises, which are early in development. Fingers crossed we get at least some teaser trailers at the long-awaited show.
