Cloud gaming has quickly become a great secondary form to access your favorite games when away from your home console. It’s not necessarily a great primary source for gaming, but in spurts, the utility to play wherever you want is a great function to have.
In the case of MLB The Show 23, this annual franchise has a history of appearing in the cloud for a particular platform, allowing you to slide your way to victory even when away from a TV screen.
With that in mind, should you expect to see MLB The Show 23 available for cloud gaming?
Can you play MLB The Show 23 in the cloud?
While MLB The Show 23 is releasing on three different platforms, only one of them offers you the ability to play the game through the cloud. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to access the game on their phone or stream it to their Xbox console without needing to install it. Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation players are stuck only being able to buy and install the game on their console of choice.
While Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can play MLB The Show 23 on their phones, that is not the case on PC since the game is only made for consoles. If you want to stream your console gameplay to your PC, you can do that, but you are still playing the console version.
To access MLB The Show 23 on the cloud, you must install the Xbox Game Pass app on your mobile device. From there, sign in with the Microsoft account with a Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Find the game under the Cloud section, and you can stream it when it is released.
