The announcement came via a press release, published on the News Wire of the brand dedicated to the world of Microsoft video games . “As part of our mission to bring joy and gaming to all gamers, wherever they are and make everything more accessible around the world, I am happy to announce that we have joined forces with Epic Games to make Fortnite available on supported devices, for free thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming (currently in beta) in 26 countries, ”reads the statement written by Catherine Gluckstein, Vice President and Head of Product of Xbox Cloud Gaming .
In order to play Fortnite using Microsoft’s cloud technology , only two requirements are necessary: a Microsoft account (an essential requirement now even just to use Windows 10 and 11) and an iOS device, iPadOS, Android phone or tablet and a Windows PC with a Internet access . “With no installation or membership required, just visit the Xbox site on your browser and log in with your Microsoft account,” reads the release.
Fortnite, however, is only the beginning. Microsoft’s next steps are in fact aimed at integrating other free-to-play games on Xbox Cloud Gaming .
“Here at Xbox we want to make gaming as accessible as possible to 3 billion players around the world and the cloud plays an important role in that mission,” concluded Gluckstein.
