Xbox One Project xCloud Beta Adds Three EA Titles
The beta preview is open on iOS and Android.
Project xCloud is Microsoft’s game-streaming service. Currently still in beta, the program has been available to select users since October last year. With big Microsoft titles like Gears 5, Halo 5: Guardians, Killer Instinct, and Sea of Thieves all on the service, EA becomes the newest company to add games to the service.
Your adventure continues in the cloud. Thanks to @EA, we're adding three new games to Project xCloud (Preview)! Take Dragon Age: Inquisition, Unravel 2, and The Sims 4 with you #InsideXboxhttps://t.co/VkWfJ9Jsrn pic.twitter.com/N0uSs7ezGg— Xbox (@Xbox) April 7, 2020
Dragon Age: Inquisition, Unravel Two, and The Sims 4 are all big titles for Microsoft to scoop up. Whether you’re a fan of Bioware’s RPG series, ready to traverse puzzles with the power of yarn and friendship, or just someone who enjoys the satisfaction of living through and managing the lives of their Sims, these three are some of the best titles to come out of EA in the past few years.
There is no word on when the streaming service will be ready for testing on other platforms. The Inside Xbox April 2020 announcements only touched on Project xCloud, including the addition of the three EA titles, with the streaming service preview set to open up in 11 more countries across Western Europe on top of the original four countries it began in.
If you are lucky enough to live in a country participating in the beta preview, you can still sign up to be a part of the program. To participate you'll need a compatible Android device, a Microsoft account, an Xbox One controller with Bluetooth, and an internet connection with 10Mbps downloads.
Project xCloud is also available on iOS, but with fewer games and features currently available.
