Valheim Now Live on Xbox Cloud, Ghostwire and More Coming to Game Pass

Games Coming to Xbox Cloud Gaming

Update: Sea of Thieves: Deluxe Edition is also now available on Xbox Cloud, alongside Game Pass for PC and Console. This version of the game includes all the permanent content of the game, 10,000 gold, and a pack of special cosmetics. What a great way to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the game, which released March 20, 2018. You can check out the trailer here.


We aren’t even out of March yet and the line-up for April is looking stacked! These last couple of days, Xbox has been on fire. Announcing all kind of deals and partnerships with different cloud gaming services. Barely a month ago, we learned about their partnership with NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW. Just yesterday, we learned about another partnership with Boosteroid. Today, the same applies to Ubitus, the company behind Nintendo Switch cloud games. To say that Xbox and Microsoft care about cloud gaming would be an understatement. Specially after looking at all the new games coming to Game Pass next April.

Even thought we don’t exactly know which games will be playable via Xbox Cloud Gaming, we can still take a look at all the confirmed titles. Even so, Xbox Cloud users have a new game available to enjoy as of today. The popular title Valheim, has just been added to Xbox Cloud!

Valheim

First announced earlier this month as coming to Game Pass, it did not mention any cloud option. But on the 14th March, it dropped as a cloud game. This is a game I’ve certainly wanted to try since I first heard about it.

Valheim is a brutal exploration and survival game for 1 to10 players set in a procedurally-generated world inspired by Norse mythology. Craft powerful weapons, construct longhouses, and slay mighty foes to prove yourself to Odin!

Ghostwire: Tokyo

Coming April 12th

Originally released as a PlayStation exclusive back in 2019, Ghostwire Tokyo is now coming to Game Pass Ultimate. However this version will include the Spiders Thread update which includes new areas, deeper combat and a new game mode.

Face the unknown, uncover the truth and save the city Tokyo is overrun by deadly supernatural forces as a dangerous occultist causes the city’s population to vanish in an instant. Join forces with a powerful spectral entity on their quest for vengeance and master a powerful arsenal of abilities to unravel the dark truth behind the disappearance as you FACE THE UNKNOWN in Ghostwire: Tokyo.

We are fairly certain this will be coming to the cloud given that it is a Bethesda title, but it has not yet been confirmed. This garnered some very positive reviews on the PlayStation and is a welcome addition to the Xbox ecosystem.

Minecraft Legends

Coming April 18th

We are certain this will be coming to the cloud.

The piglins’ Nether corruption is spreading across the Overworld, scorching everything it touches. Are you the hero who will protect this gentle land? Plan your strategy and face the piglins in epic battles – but be warned: they always fight back. Take on piglin bases by day and defend your allies after dusk. Explore lush biomes filled with treasures and perils, meet new friends, and reunite with familiar mobs. With the allays by your side, all that’s left to do is save the world.

The first major Xbox first party of the year is finally getting released. The behemoth that is Minecraft is releasing a full new game dubbed an Action Adventure which remixes the series standard survival and crafting into a real-time strategy adventure across the Minecraft over world. Which is now split into both new and familiar biomes. The main gameplay cycle has the player traversing through biomes on a mount while they gather materials, support allies, fight angry mobs of piglins, and craft personalized bases.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox

Coming April 27th – not cloud confirmed

Descend into a limbo of decaying memories as Benedict Fox, a self-proclaimed detective bound to his demon companion. Use that unholy bond to explore the minds of the recently deceased in search of clues as you uncover the mysteries of a massive, decrepit mansion — the site to a young couple’s grisly murder, and the disappearance of their child. Immerse yourself in a dark, intriguing world full of secret organizations, forbidden rituals, and cold-blooded crimes in an arcane adventure brought to life through a fascinating Burton-esque art style.

Homestead Arcana

Coming April 2023 – not cloud confirmed

Become a farming Witch. Pioneer the range that has been mysteriously corrupted with Miasma. Discover the secret behind its appearance, grow plants to power up your spells, and use nature’s magic to heal the land.

You might find us playing Valheim via Xbox Cloud.
