Next up is the already announced Destiny 2 along with the Shadowkeep (Shadowkeep) and Forsaken (The Forsaken) expansions, a host of content available on Xbox One and xCloud on September 22.

The game streaming service will support cloud saves so players can continue a game they have been playing on their Xbox while they're on the go.

Microsoft's xCloud games streaming service is available from today in 22 countries worldwide. For now, it also appears that xCloud will only be available via Game Pass Ultimate and not as a standalone subscription, or in a bundle with just Game Pass for Console or PC.

It remains to be seen if xCloud will be available to Apple smartphone and tablet users in future.

You'll have to connect your Microsoft account to the app before you can access your games online via the Cloud tab within the app.

Microsoft has also made great efforts to bring more Japanese games to the library, so titles like Yakuza 0, Kiwami and Kiwami 2 are all included. A controller can still be used with the game on xCloud, but if you find yourself caught short without a gamepad, you can still jump into the dungeon crawler and start exploring. This isn't as simple as just moving controller buttons to a screen, and instead is fully optimised with "native touch controls and a redesigned UI" as well as custom layouts and overlays, meaning this version of the game will feel as if it was designed specifically for mobile.

When cross-platform play is enabled later this year, mobile players will be able to join their friends on Windows PCs and other consoles. First, they are partnering with third-party companies to produce accessories like the Razer Kishi, a $99 controller that transforms your phone into something that resembles an indie Nintendo Switch alternative. In an official news post, Microsoft have also revealed details of the launch title lineup.
