Xbox has kicked off its X019 gaming event in London with a raft of announcements that will help gamers play the latest titles whenever and wherever they want.
Project xCloud, the game streaming service that lets users play their Xbox game on mobile devices, is being expanded; the Xbox Game Pass library will get 50 new titles for players to enjoy; and there was gaming news from studios such as Rare, Obsidian and 343 Industries.
Thousands of Xbox fans flocked to the Copper Box Arena in London for X019, a fan event that was being held in the UK for the first time, to play the latest titles and get hands-on. The three-day event kicked off with a special episode of Inside Xbox and FanFest, which announced that Project xCloud, which currently uses Xbox One controllers and runs on Android devices, would run on Windows 10 PCs and support the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller and game pads from Razer.
Xbox is adding more than 50 new titles to the service, including Madden NFL 20, Devil May Cry 5, and Tekken 7. Project xCloud is currently being previewed in the US, UK and Korea, but will be rolled out to more markets in 2020, such as Canada, India, Japan and Western Europe.
Fans at X019 could also play eagerly-awaited titles such as Minecraft Dungeons, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Grounded – a first-person, co-op survival game from Obsidian that will launch in Spring 2020.
