Microsoft’s new tech lets you play Forza Horizon 4 on your phone

Microsoft are working on a streaming service that will let you play Xbox games on the go.

Project xCloud is designed to stream your games to almost any device, from your phone to a tablet. Microsoft’s official video shows Xbox One games such as Forza Horizon 4, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Cuphead running flawlessly on mobile platforms. When the tech gets its full release, you’ll have a choice of using an Xbox One controller linked via Bluetooth or innovative touchscreen controls.

Public tests of this exciting new tech will begin in 2019, although Microsoft have revealed that internal testing has already begun. We’re picturing huge Halo deathmatches in the Microsoft cafeteria.

Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President, Kareem Choudhry, writes that the service’s goal is to “deliver a quality experience for all gamers on all devices that is consistent with the speed and high-fidelity gamers experience and expect on their PCs and consoles.”

With Microsoft’s exclusive library of games going from strength-to-strength, such as the critically acclaimed Forza Horizon 4 recently racing onto hard-drives, we can’t wait to see how Project xCloud will open up the Xbox gaming library to us, wherever we are.
