Minecraft Dungeons adding full touch controls to Xbox Cloud Gaming on phones

Minecraft Dungeons adding full touch controls to Xbox Cloud Gaming on phones

Back in July, Microsoft said its game streaming service Project xCloud will exit preview in September. And players don't have to worry about leaving left behind when cross-play is finally added to the game; since Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox Cloud Gaming is just the Xbox version of the game, cross-play will work perfectly even with touch controls enabled. Now just £21.99 for 3-months of membership, this is an impressive discount when you consider the entire Ultimate service costs £10.99 per month normally. Leveraging these connections and the open accessibility of Euronet's REV Payments Cloud, epay now will provide processing and settlement services between the two parties for sales of Games Pass Ultimate and Xbox All Access in the mobile operator's physical and online stores.

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.

Meanwhile, thanks to Apple's App Store policies, the streaming service will only be available on Android phones and tablets. However, the component that makes cloud gaming possible is not available everywhere Xbox Game Pass Ultimate was released. To enhance their cloud gaming experience, they can order a new Samsung Galaxy device and select the Gaming Bundle at purchase, which includes three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and the all-new Power A MOGA XP5-X Plus Bluetooth Controller with an attachable phone clip.

The feature is available through the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription service's app, launching via update for Android devices in 22 countries.

Microsoft has also made great efforts to bring more Japanese games to the library, so titles like Yakuza 0, Kiwami and Kiwami 2 are all included.
