Xbox adds touch controls to Dead Cells, Killer Instinct, Hellblade, and more on Game Pass

Microsoft added 10 games with touch controls to Xbox Game Pass.

These include:

  • Dead Cells
  • Guacamelee! 2
  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
  • Hotshot Racing
  • Killer Instinct
  • New Super Lucky's Tale
  • Slay The Spire
  • Streets of Rage 4
  • Tell Me Why
  • UnderMine

Microsoft said that it was building off the success of Minecraft Dungeons, the first game it launched with touch controls.

"Touch controls have been one of the top-requested features for cloud gaming, so to build this collection we worked closely with players and game designers to create a familiar experience, and support a level of play that you’re used to with a physical controller," said Catherine Gluckstein, GM & Head of Product, Project xCloud. "For each title that uses Xbox touch controls we’ve worked to create an experience designed specifically for that game on mobile devices."

The company also created new icons so players can easily find button commands.

Microsoft said it will add more touch control-enabled titles soon to Android mobile devices. Xbox Games Pass Ultimate, which includes Xbox Live Gold, costs $15 a month. Console or PC subscriptions without Gold cost $10 a month.
