Microsoft has revealed the full list of Xbox games that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be able to play on Android devices starting tomorrow. All these games will use Microsoft’s Cloud Gaming technology, previously known as Project xCloud, which has been in testing since fall 2019.

Cloud Gaming in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be available in 22 markets starting tomorrow, and it’s included for free with a $14.99/month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. “Similar to Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC, you can expect the library to evolve over time based on members’ feedback, with new games added all the time,” said Kareem Choudhry, Corporate Vice President, Cloud Gaming at Microsoft.

At launch, the list of over 150 games will include popular solo games such as A Plague Tale: Innocence, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and The Witcher 3, but lots of multiplayer games will also be available including Fallout 76, Sea of Thieves, or Bleeding Edge. Racing fans will also find Forza Horizon 4 and F1 2019 in the list, and there’s a real focus on shooters as well with Halo: MCC, Halo 5: Guardians, Gears 5, and Destiny 2 (available Sept 22). You can check the full list of games on this page.

While Minecraft isn’t in the list yet, Minecraft Dungeons is and it will be the first game that will be playable with touch controls. All other games in the catalog will require an Xbox Wireless controller or a third-party controller that supports Bluetooth. “This is just the beginning: the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate team will continue to work with developers to add touch to even more titles soon after cloud gaming goes live on September 15,” Microsoft said.

To get started with Cloud Gaming tomorrow, you’ll need to download the Xbox Game Pass app from the Google Play Store, the Samsung Galaxy Store, or the One Store. Again, Cloud Gaming is available for free with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, and new subscribers can get their first for just $1 instead of $14.99. Microsoft said earlier this year that it had crossed 10 million subscribers for Xbox Game Pass, and Cloud Gaming will help the company reach the 2 billion people playing games worldwide. Unfortunately, Apple’s complicated App Store policies are still preventing Microsoft to make Cloud Gaming available on iOS devices.
