Xcloud News: Series X Blades, Open to All, Streaming Device and TV App Coming Soon


Xbox are kicking it up a notch with their cloud gaming service. They have laid out their plans for the future of their Xbox Cloud Gaming service recently in an article from Xbox Wire.


Xbox are actively working with global TV manufacturers to bring an Xbox TV App to internet-connected televisions. The only extra hardware required will be a compatible controller


A new subscription offer for Xbox Game Pass could be on the horizon. With the moves they are making I am 99.99% certain we will see a "Cloud Subscription" in the future.


A new streaming device is in the works for cloud gaming. This will allow gamers to play on any TV or monitor without the need for a console.


Gaming in the cloud through Game Pass Ultimate is expanding into Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and Japan later this year.


In the coming weeks you will no longer need an invite to use Xbox' Cloud Gaming Beta service. If you have an active Game Pass Ultimate subscription you will be able to play without invite very soon.


Penultimately, they are in the final stages of updating the Microsoft datacentres around the world. The latest generation of hardware, Xbox Series X, is being installed as we speak. Once finalised, we will see faster load times, improved frame rates and experience Series X/S optimised games.


Finally, later this year Xbox will integrate cloud gaming directly into the PC app. They will also integrate into the console experience so you can try before you download.


All this Xbox Cloud Gaming news is really lighting up the cloud gaming landscape right now and I for one can't wait to see what else they bring to us from the upcoming Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase.
