Microsoft xCloud preview now has 50 new games, more than the launch list of Stadia

Microsoft is expanding its Project xCloud preview today, with the addition of 50 games. The software maker originally launched the xCloud preview with just five titles exactly a month ago, and it’s now working with more than 25 partners to launch 50 games today. Titles include Madden NFL 20Devil May Cry 5Tekken 7, and Forza Horizon 4. This will give xCloud testers a lot more games to play, but also provide us with a better understanding of how the service will run for more demanding titles.

Microsoft isn’t at the point where it’s ready to launch Project xCloud as a full service with a monthly cost or subscription model, but the company has also committed to launching xCloud in 2020. The new games arrive just as Google prepares to launch its Stadia game streaming service next week. Google’s Stadia has 44 games lined up from a wide array of publishers, but only 12 of them will be available at launch, for an initial price of $130 for the hardware starter kit with three months of service, which will be $10 a month afterward.

Microsoft is operating xCloud as a free preview, for now, but it’s planning to combine this in some form with its Xbox Game Pass offering next year. Either way, having 50 games is more than Stadia’s launch list right now and it shows the hurdles Google will need to overcome in order to get developers to publish games on Stadia. Google is also promising a lot more titles for 2020, and Microsoft will obviously expand xCloud next year as it continues to test the service.
