Project xCloud, Microsoft’s answer to remote game streaming, has added a bunch of new games into its preview program. The tech has been available to Xbox insiders in the US, UK and Korean markets for a few months, with plans to expand in 2020. Now, a good selection of new titles are playable within the service, including Destiny 2.
Word comes by way of WindowsCentral, and the full list is as follows:
- Batman: The Enemy Within – The Complete Season (Episodes 1-5)
- Batman: The Telltale Series – The Complete Season (Episodes 1-5)
- Destiny 2
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- GoNNER – BLÜEBERRY Edition
- Portal Knights
- Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
- Kingdom Two Crowns
- The Surge
- The Wolf Among Us
- Tracks – The Train Set Game
- Train Sim World 2019
- Wasteland 2: Directors Cut
This is a nice mix of styles and genres, but a few stick out the most. Destiny 2 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be great to test for latency and response times. Of course, Destiny 2 is also available for streaming on Google Stadia, so the comparison will be interesting to see.
Another remote option, Console Streaming, recently left closed preview and opened up to all Xbox Insiders in supported regions. This feature allows you to stream games from your own console to a mobile device, where xCloud doesn’t require an Xbox console.
