Update: During today's Inside Xbox show, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed that the Project xCloud preview is getting three new EA games. They are Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Sims 4, and Unravel 2. He didn't reveal when they would be joining the program, and a quick check of our account shows they're not live yet.

We'll update you as soon as they are.    

Original: Project xCloud, Xbox's streaming service set to take on Google Stadia and PS Now, is expanding its preview sign-ups to 11 new Western European countries.

The full list of new countries is below, and people in those territories with Android devices are invited to register for the preview now at the official site.  

  • Belgium 
  • Denmark
  • Finland 
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Spain
  • Sweden

There's no word of when exactly the preview will launch in each country, with Xbox keeping an eye on the COVID 19 situation and strain on different countries' internet infrastructures. 

"We continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation and will begin rolling out the Project xCloud preview across 11 Western European countries when we are confident it is sensible to do so," said Catherine Gluckstein, GM & head of product for Project xCloud.

"We will take a measured approach to help conserve internet access, beginning the preview in each market with a limited number of people and adding more participants over time."

The preview is well worth checking out, with around 92 games to stream to your device. The list includes first-party favorites like Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection as well as third-party standouts such as Destiny 2, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Devil May Cry 5.
