Tracks – The Train Set Game and Train Sim World 2019? You’re spoiling us Microsoft! Okay, okay, that’s a bit snarky. Project xCloud isn’t just about train set sims -- in addition to the games above, the xCloud lineup also includes games like Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Madden NFL 20, and Devil May Cry 5. You can check out the full list of available games here.
As mentioned, Project xCloud is currently in beta, and lets you play its current list of 50+ games with an Xbox controller on your computer or mobile device with Android 6.0 or greater. Only a 10mbps Wi-Fi or mobile connection is needed to play, so pretty much anybody will be able to play once it launches. The service recently expanded to South Korea, where it’s already rather popular. Unfortunately, signs ups for Western players are currently closed, but keep an eye on this page -- perhaps Microsoft will open them up again.
Project xCloud is set to launch in full later this year. What do you think? Are you interested in giving Project xCloud a spin? Have any of the newly-supported games changed your mind?
