Project xCloud and console streaming will be offered in preview in October of this year, Microsoft confirmed at its Xbox E3 2019 press conference.
When available, players will have two opportunities to stream to handheld devices whilst o the go. First, Console streaming will allow a player to stream from their Xbox One to a handheld device of choice, for free, and offers up all the content available inside their personal Xbox One library. This also includes Xbox Game Pass titles if a user is a subscriber.
Second, Project xCloud streaming will pretty much allow the same library of available titles to a user, just without the need to stream from a console. Instead, Microsoft will handle that from its own server farm.
“With console streaming, gamers will have access to their Xbox One game library and Xbox Game Pass titles on the go, streamed directly from an Xbox One console to a mobile device,” Microsoft said in a press release.
Those at E3 2019 will be able to play Xbox One games including Halo 5: Guardians and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on a smartphone or tablet using the Project xCloud technology base.
“Console Streaming from your Xbox One means you can play your games on the go. Going into preview in October 2019,” Microsoft also confirmed via Twitter.
