Xbox Cloud Gaming, previously known as Project xCloud while it was in preview in the US, is Microsoft’s answer to the game streaming market, also populated by competitors like Google Stadia. With Xbox Cloud Gaming, anyone subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate can play hundreds of Xbox Game Pass titles directly on their phone, either using a controller or, with some games, even touch controls. While Xbox Cloud Gaming is publically available in several markets like the US, and many parts of Europe, it has been strangely mising from a few key markets. That’s set to change soon, with the Project xCloud Preview program opening up in four new regions.
Starting November 18, 2020, players in Australia, Brazil, Japan, and Mexico will be able to sign-in to test Project xCloud on their Android device, using a limited catalogue of free games, including some of the Best Xbox Cloud Gaming games on Android like Minecraft Dungeons, and other games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza Horizon 4, Black Desert, PUBG, and Yakuza 0.
Players can now register to be invited to the Project xCloud Preview (yes, it’s invite-only right now) when it starts on November 18. The Preview is available on Android devices through the Google Play Store, and will be available in English, Portuguese, Japanese, and Spanish. Microsoft intends to gather feedback and improve the experience, before eventually rolling out Xbox Cloud Gaming to these markets sometime next year, as a part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Is the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate the best value in all of gaming? It’s possible. Ultimate bundles your Xbox Live Gold subscription, an Xbox Game Pass subscription for both Xbox consoles and Windows PC’s, and Xbox Cloud Gaming for on-the-go.
