Next week, Xbox titles will arrive on the cloud gaming platform Boosteroid for the first time. On June 1, users of the platform will have access to Deathloop, Gears 5, Grounded, and Penitent.

Users of Boosteroid in the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, and Ukraine will be able to stream Microsoft-owned games purchased from Steam or the Epic Games Store. In the future, support for Microsoft Store purchases and other titles will be added. Sarah Bond, corporate vice president at Xbox, wrote in a blog post, “We’ll frequently add more hits and fan favorites from our extensive library of PC games.”

This makes Boosteroid the second external cloud service where Microsoft will offer its games (Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can also access these games via Xbox Cloud Gaming). Since May 18th, NVIDIA GeForce Now users have been able to broadcast Gears 5. Deathloop, Grounded, and Penitent will become available for GeForce Now later this week.

Microsoft signed 10-year agreements with NVIDIA, Boosteroid, and other cloud gaming providers to offer Xbox and Bethesda games, as well as PC versions of Activision Blizzard titles, if its attempt to acquire that company is successful. It entered into these agreements in an effort to convince regulators to sanction the $68.7 billion transaction. While the acquisition has been approved in dozens of countries, most recently in China, cloud gaming has been a point of contention for regulators in some nations. The United Kingdom’s competition authority blocked the transaction on the grounds that it would strengthen Microsoft’s dominant position in the burgeoning cloud gaming market. Concerns about cloud gaming (and other factors) were cited in the lawsuit filed by the US Federal Trade Commission to obstruct the merger. In contrast, Microsoft’s cloud gaming concessions have appeased European Union officials, who last week gave the deal the go-ahead.
