T-Mobile is the U.S. technical partner for Microsoft’s public preview of Project xCloud, streaming Xbox games like Gears 5, Halo 5: Guardians and more over LTE.
Microsoft chose T-Mobile as its U.S. technical partner during the Project xCloud preview that will optimize mobile game streaming, which starts this month. Today, there is no way to play Xbox games over mobile networks on a smartphone or tablet, but with a preview of Project xCloud, T-Mobile and Microsoft are using T-Mobile’s LTE network to learn more about the ways gamers stream great games on the go.
For anyone who wants to preview the future of gaming and experience console-quality gaming without the console, on the go, anytime, the public preview of Project xCloud is a can't-miss.
Catch all the details about about the preview in our T-Mobile Newsroom. Microsoft will invite a limited number of players into the Project xCloud public preview -- gamers can sign up for a chance to participate at http://www.xbox.com/xbox-game-streaming.
