Microsoft adds touch controls to 50+ titles in Xbox Game Pass' cloud-enabled line-up

Gears 5! Sea of Thieves! Killer Instinct! More!

Microsoft has given a wide selection of Xbox Game Pass titles a mobile-friendly makeover, introducing new touch control options to over 50 games in its current cloud-enabled line-up, including Sea of Thieves, Gears 5, Dragon Quest XI S, Killer Instinct, and more.

Microsoft's first touch-enabled Xbox title, Minecraft Dungeons, launched last September. "Since then," the company writes in its announcement post, "touch controls remain one of the top-requested features for cloud gaming, to unlock new ways to play on your Android mobile devices without the need for an external controller."

To that end, Microsoft says it's now implemented touch controls in 54 games from its existing range of cloud-enabled Xbox titles, and Xbox Game Pass subscribers can put those efforts through their paces by downloading the Game Pass app to their Android devices.
