Microsoft is rolling out next-gen Xbox games to the Xbox One with xCloud
Microsoft will let Xbox One proprietors play next-gen Xbox games through its xCloud service. The news was buried in a blog post recapping Microsoft’s Xbox + Bethesda exhibit, with the organization confirming plans to use Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) for Xbox One control center. That implies the 2013 hardware will actually want to play Xbox Series X exclusive games from 2021 — expanding the lifecycle of what might regularly before long be obsolete boxes.
“For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers,” says Will Tuttle, editor in chief of Microsoft’s Xbox Wire.
As of recently, Microsoft had just described xCloud on consoles as a route for players to “try [games] before you download,” yet it’s clear the organization considers the to be as offering substantially more. Microsoft originally declared Microsoft Flight Simulator as a Xbox One title, before unobtrusively removing references to the Xbox One launch in December. Microsoft as of late affirmed Flight Simulator will currently launch on Xbox Series X/S consoles on July 27th.
It’s anything but clear when xCloud game streaming will be free on Xbox One control center, however. It’s probably not going to be prepared on schedule for the July dispatch of Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Microsoft’s head of cloud gaming, Kareem Choudhry, recently said xCloud will be integrated into consoles “later this year.”
xCloud accessibility will give a welcome boost to Xbox One consoles, especially as Microsoft is upgrading its worker cutting edges to run Xbox Series X hardware not long from now. It will give this older hardware an approach to play upcoming titles like Starfield, which, similar to Flight Simulator, will launch dispatch only on the new Xbox Series X/S consoles.
