Epic Games’ “Fortnite” game is a true long-running hit. Microsoft knows this too and has therefore ventured into a direct partnership with the developer studio. The Redmond-based company already offers cloud gaming through its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. However, this requires a paid membership. An exception is made for Fortnite. Therefore, it is possible to play the title through Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) at no cost.
It doesn’t take much: If you want to play “Fortnite” this way through the cloud, all you need is a Microsoft account and an iOS, iPadOS, Android, or Windows device with Internet access. You can then simply get to work via your browser by xbox.com/play calls There you sign in with your Microsoft account and you can get started. Microsoft has also confirmed that this way they want to unlock access to other free-to-play titles through the cloud for free.
You can play “Fortnite” through the cloud with the compatible controllers and touch controls. Why did Microsoft decide to take this train? The goal is to give more players the easiest possible access to games. However, the idea behind this should certainly be to anchor your own brand in people’s minds and possibly turn them into mainstream games that are subject to a fee.
