Starting this September, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will incorporate cloud gaming at no additional cost to the user. As such, those who subscribe to that top tier version of the subscription service will be able to play more than 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on their mobile devices, via the cloud.
In the same Xbox Wire post, Phil Spencer also detailed other ways in which Microsoft’s gaming division will continue to support its players, subscribers and fans:
- Players will always be welcome – a commitment backed up with community support, empowering creators of different backgrounds to bring diverse content to our platform, and the acceleration of new technology to reduce hate speech and toxicity.
- Players will not be forced into the next generation. Xbox Game Studios titles shipped in the next few years will play great on Xbox Series X and Xbox One, and Xbox will continue to support cross-play so that gamers and their friends can play together across platforms, as well as across console generations.
- With Xbox’s “Smart Delivery” technology, players can buy supporting titles once and play across console generations at no cost. Highly anticipated titles like “Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla” and “Cyberpunk 2077” will support Smart Delivery.
- Players can play new Xbox Game Studios titles on the day they launch with Xbox Game Pass.
