Xbox PC Games Arrive on Boosteroid Cloud Gaming Platform

Key Takeaways

  • Boosteroid now streams various Xbox PC games.
  • Games accessible on any device, supporting cross-play and save.
  • Microsoft's strategy is to expand global game access via cloud partnerships.

Boosteroid now streams a selection of Xbox PC games from the Microsoft Store and Game Pass.

This move allows gamers to play Deathloop, Dishonored series, Gears 5, Gears Tactics, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Pentiment, and more on various devices without downloading or installing.

Starting March 7, Boosteroid members with access to games through Microsoft Store purchases or Game Pass subscriptions can play these games on any supported device, including PCs, smartphones, and smart TVs. The integration also supports cross-play and cross-save features, enabling a seamless gaming experience between Xbox consoles and Windows PCs.

The collaboration is part of Microsoft’s broader strategy to make its Xbox PC games more accessible globally. It follows a commitment announced last year to partner with several cloud gaming providers to enhance gaming accessibility and choice.

To play, users must log into their Boosteroid account, select the game from the Xbox section in their library, and start playing after logging into their Microsoft account. The gaming experience quality will depend on various factors, including the user’s hardware and network connection.

This development marks a continuation of Microsoft’s efforts to expand its gaming ecosystem, allowing more players to access its titles across different platforms and devices.

In March 2023, Microsoft inked a third deal involving Call of Duty. The 10-year agreement with Boosteroid aims to stream Xbox PC games and Activision Blizzard hits, including Call of Duty, contingent on regulators approving Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision. This followed similar agreements with Nvidia and Nintendo.
