When Microsoft's xCloud launched as part of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription back in September, the platform promoted that you would be able to play games with an Xbox controller or touch controls on your mobile device. However, xCloud launched with only one game supporting touch controls, Minecraft Dungeons.

This has now changed, as Microsoft has now confirmed that ten more games will be getting official touch control support. You can find the full list of games below:

  • Dead Cells
  • Gucamelee! 2
  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
  • Hotshot Racing
  • Killer Instinct
  • New Super Lucky's Tale
  • Slay The Spire
  • Streets of Rage 4
  • Tell Me Why
  • UnderMine

Touch controls are implemented differently for each game. An example of this would be Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. In the game, touch controls differentiate while running around the world and in combat. Games such as Hotshot Racing has touch controls that simulate an analog gamepad.

There are over 150 games that you can play with xCloud, and it is available in over 22 countries worldwide. If you are interested, go and pick up a month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and try it out! The best part is that you do not require an Xbox to play the games. Just a mobile device!
