At Xbox, we’re always looking to make games accessible to more people in more ways than one. Since we launched Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) two years ago, we’ve continued to expand support for devices: Hello Infinite to entry-level computers, Forza Horizon 5 on iOS phones and tablets, Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox One and hundreds of games on even more devices like Samsung Smart TV from 2022.
As we look forward, we’ll continue to meet people on the devices they already own, breaking down barriers to entry.
So today we’re announcing that Xbox Cloud Gaming will be available in more places with Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld when it will launch in North America on October 17th. You’ll be able to play soon Grounded and Sea of Thievesor discover your next favorite game, right in the palm of your hand using the power of the cloud on a brand new device.
Handhelds are the natural next step in our cloud gaming evolution and it’s great to see a world-class hardware leader like Logitech optimize Xbox Cloud Gaming for their new device. You can jump in with ease, wherever you are, and take advantage of the full-screen 16:9 aspect ratio. With extended battery life, built-in Wi-Fi and ergonomic controls, the Logitech G CLOUD will allow you to progress through campaigns or go online for a multiplayer session where it suits you best.
Getting started is easy: when you launch your Logitech G CLOUD, you’ll see a shortcut for Xbox Cloud Gaming pinned right to your home screen. You can play hundreds of high-quality titles with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, including new day-one games from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda, as well as fantastic titles from our partners such as, The Gunk, PowerWash Simulatorand A tunic. You can also play Fortnite with your friends for free, no Game Pass subscription required.
Additionally, we worked with Logitech to enable our Remote Play feature, also pinned as a home screen shortcut. Remote Play differs from Xbox Cloud Gaming in that it allows you to stream your own full Xbox library – going beyond the titles in Xbox Game Pass – from your personal Xbox console to phones, tablets and now handhelds.
