Xbox’s backwards compatibility program is growing again, as Microsoft has announced that select titles from the library will be playable on Xbox Cloud Gaming–the service formerly known as xCloud–starting today, March 31. Subscribers to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate program can now play 16 titles from across the original Xbox and Xbox 360 on an Android device.
In a blog post, Microsoft said adding games from previous generations to Xbox Cloud Gaming was one of the most requested features for the program to date. Games like Banjo-Kazooie, Fable II, Fallout: New Vegas, Perfect Dark, Oblivion, and Kameo are now playable via xCloud with a controller. Games like Viva Pinata and Jetpac Refuelled, meanwhile, have touch controls baked in so you don’t need a controller at all.
What’s more, all of the games will include any past saves you might have from over the years, while there is also multiplayer support through
Xbox Live Xbox Network.
