Xbox has announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available on PC and Apple devices via web browser for all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.

Early Black Friday deals are starting to go live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Black Friday discounts early, with many more to follow.

As per the Xbox Wire, subscribers in 22 countries can now access the service by going to Xbox.com/play via any compatible browser and a connected controller. Once you do this, you’ll be able to access and play over a hundred Xbox games available via the Cloud on the service.

The company has also noted that it’s made improvements to the back end of the service, with Xbox Cloud Gaming now powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware. Currently for bandwidth reasons, streaming tops out at 1080p and up to 60FPS, but Xbox promise “going forward we’ll continue to innovate and add more features to enhance your cloud gaming experience.”

The service first formally launched on mobile and Android devices last September following an extensive beta period. Back in March, the service also started bringing older Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles to its catalogue including Fable II, Gears of War 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
