Hits like ‘Yakuza: Like a Dragon’ and ‘Rainbow Six Siege’, for example, now show settings previously restricted to Xbox Series, such as 120 fps and next-gen graphics options. Additionally, load times are reduced courtesy of the speed capable of generating the SSD. To ensure the lowest latency and highest quality experience on the largest number of devices, streaming will run at 1080p and up to 60 fps.
How does it work?
Games in the cloud are capable of offering next-generation titles in perfect condition on all types of devices, from the ultra-operational Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G, to the efficient Oppo A53 4 GB, the quality level only varies depending on of the screen characteristics of the mobile device. When you’re streaming a game on PC or mobile device, it plays from Xbox hardware in a Microsoft data center. This means you can play games, connect with friends, and play over the Xbox network as usual. The saved games are the same and at any time you can pick up the game from where you left off.
As of now, the cloud platform is also available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members with Windows 10 PCs, Apple phones or tablets, and through a browser, in 22 countries (including Spain). Ultimate members can now go to Microsoft Edge, Chrome or Safari on a PC or mobile device and start playing the 100+ titles available in the Xbox Game Pass library.
In practice, this translates into more detailed graphics, smoother transitions, and virtually non-existent load times, even on a web browser or any Android device. What is needed, of course, is a powerful Internet connection that is capable of handling the volume of retransmission.
