Comments

Microsoft's xCloud game streaming service allows users to play titles with either a wireless controller or through touch controls. However, the platform launched with touch controls only available for Minecraft Dungeons, but now a handful more titles are supported.

Microsoft has now confirmed 10 more titles available on the service that now support touch controls, including Dead Cells, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and Killer Instinct.

You can see the full list below.

  • Dead Cells
  • Gucamelee! 2
  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
  • Hotshot Racing
  • Killer Instinct
  • New Super Lucky’s Tale
  • Slay The Spire
  • Streets of Rage 4
  • Tell Me Why
  • UnderMine

Touch controls are integrated differently depending on the game. For example, Hellblade displays different controls for when you're walking around the world and when you're in combat. In Hotshot Racing, meanwhile, there is a touch-controlled throttle that aims to replicate the feeling of analog triggers on a controller.

The guiding principle for all of the touch controls is to allow you to do everything with two digits. And for those looking to customize the experience, the on-screen controls can be moved around to your liking. Finally, Microsoft created new icons to help people quickly understand what they're doing. These are the jump and dodge icons, as well as something involving a lightning bolt.
