What you need to know
- Project xCloud is a cloud game streaming service along the lines of Google Stadia.
- It's available on Android phones at the moment, but it's expanding to Windows 10 next year.
- Six more games like Shadow Warrior 2 are available through the service for free.
- You just have to be accepted into the program to play all of these games through the cloud.
Microsoft seems like it's hell-bent on adding as many games to Project xCloud game streaming preview as possible. A few days ago, a lot of games like Wreckfest were added to the service. Now, six more made their way. A few hours ago, Xbox Live's Director of Programming Larry Hryb — better known as Major Nelson — said that Bomber Crew, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Shadow Warrior 2, and more were available on Project xCloud.

For the King is a really fun game.
Kingdom Come Deliverance is one of the best games I've played in a long time, glad I'll be able to stream it from the cloud now too.
This is crazy, Microsoft is now adding games to Project xCloud every week! It's like the new backward compatibility, ha ha!
This service keeps making stadia look worthless everyday 😂😂
The whole idea of xCloud was meant to be every game being available. At this rate it's going to be years before that's the case.
