Today Microsoft will be launching cloud gaming on Android phones and tablets through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. And today Microsoft will release Minecraft Dungeons via cloud gaming with fully-optimized, native touch controls and a redesigned UI to make it easy to navigate the inventory or in-game menu on a smaller screen.
The new overlay and custom layouts to optimize the game for touch, these optimizations will ensure the actions players take the most (move, melee, ranged attack, roll/dodge) are in the most intuitive locations on the screen.
With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, players can jump on their mobile device and play online co-op mode with their friends on Xbox One. Later this year, when Minecraft Dungeons enables cross-platform play, mobile players will also be able to join forces with friends on Windows PC and other consoles.
Microsoft’s vision for cloud gaming is to provide you with a choice in how and when you play games. Beginning today, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 22 countries including Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States will enjoy the freedom to play more than 100 games on their Android mobile phones and tablets via the cloud. But as we think about ways to create a unique gaming experience for each individual, it’s about more than just the device they play on; we want to offer more choice in how the game is played.
Microsoft has been stated that the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate team will continue to work with developers to add ouch to even more titles soon after the cloud gaming goes live on September 15, which means today.
