Microsoft has revealed that that more than 150 titles will be available to stream through Xbox Game Pass in Canada and 21 other countries starting September 15th.

It’s important to note that the company’s game streaming service was previously known as ‘Project xCloud’ while it was in beta, but now, Microsoft is simply referring to its as ‘cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.’

What has remained the same, however, is that game streaming is available at no additional cost to those with a $16.99 CAD/month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Through that integration, xCloud allows you to stream the majority of titles from the Game Pass catalogue, all through that monthly fee.

At launch, xCloud will be available on Android devices version 6.0 or greater that support Bluetooth version 4.0+ via an app on the Play Store. Samsung owners can download a special version of the app via the Galaxy Store which supports in-app purchases to buy additional content for games. Across all Android devices the xCloud app also features full integration with Xbox Live, meaning friends, achievements, party and voice chat, cloud saves and more will carry over from console and PC to mobile.

It’s important to note that while Microsoft has noted its intent to bring xCloud to as many devices as possible, the service will likely not be coming to iOS anytime soon. That’s because Apple’s App Store rules have long prevented game streaming services like xCloud.

While Apple updated its App Store guidelines last week, the new policies were still restrictive, requiring each game in a service like Game Pass to be offered on iOS through its own standalone app. Naturally, this would allow Apple to take its standard 30 percent cut per title, whereas Game Pass’ current all-in-one offering would prevent this.

In response, Microsoft said this would create a “bad experience for customers,” arguing that “gamers want to jump directly into a game from their curated catalog [sic] within one app just like they do with movies or songs, and not be forced to download over 100 apps to play individual games from the cloud.”

For now, though, Microsoft promises to continue to grow xCloud on Android with new games over time. Overall, Game Pass Ultimate is meant to be Microsoft’s most accessible option for those looking for console-quality gaming. On November 10th, the company will also launch its next-gen consoles, the $379.99 Xbox Series S and $599 Xbox Series X, for a more traditional gaming experience.
