Project xCloud has received an expansion of its games catalog. Microsoft has ramped the total to 80, far outdoing Stadia’s 32. Among them are some big titles, including Destiny 2, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI.
As a beta app, xCloud is currently free for preview members to use. However, the service is currently limited to Android devices in the US, UK, and Korea, with Western Europe, Japan, and India coming in early 2020.
As well as the titles above, xCloud will get several Telltale Games titles, including The Wolf Among Us, Batman: The Enemy Within, and Batman: The Telltale series. Also notable is Wasteland 2, which is likely a result of Microsoft’s acquisition of developer inXile Entertainment. The company’s relations built through Xbox publishing are also starting to shine through, with the full list (via Windows Central) as follows:
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
Batman: The Enemy Within – The Complete Season (Episodes 1-5)
Batman: The Telltale Series – The Complete Season (Episodes 1-5)
The Wolf Among Us
Wasteland 2: Directors Cut
GoNNER – BLÜEBERRY Edition
Kingdom Two Crowns
Tracks – The Train Set Game
Train Sim World 2019
Of course, you’ll have to play all of them on your phone in 720p for now, which isn’t ideal. xCloud will be coming to PC this year, but Microsoft hasn’t given a firmer date than that. Strategy games like Civilization VI are particularly fiddly with a controller, so let’s hope some kind of keyboard and mouse support will arrive soon.
