Microsoft added touch controls to more than 50 cloud-based games on the Xbox Game Pass.
The news came when Microsoft revealed the list of games coming to the platform in April in a blog on the Xbox website.
Xbox touch controls debuted in September 2020 alongside the release of Minecraft Dungeons, but Microsoft is now expanding the control system to include over 50 cloud-compatible games on the Xbox Game Pass.
This means that Android device owners can use the Xbox Game Pass app to play Xbox Cloud Gaming titles without connecting a console to their phones. Games that will benefit from touch controls include Slay the Spire, Sea of Thieves, Spiritfarer, Gears 5, Tell Me Why, Desperados 3, Dead Cells, Donut County, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, and more.
The complete list of 54 games that will take advantage of the Xbox’s touchscreen controls can be found at this link. In other Xbox Game Pass news, Microsoft also revealed that GTA V will be back in service this week, after leaving it in May 2020. Other games that will join April include Zombie Army 4: Dead War, MLB The Show 21, and more. The latter is especially interesting given that MLB The Show 21 was developed by Sony San Diego.
