The popular open-world shooter Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) returns to Xbox Game Pass. From April 8, Microsoft will again include the Rockstar title in its game flat rate and offer it for Xbox consoles and stream it to Android devices via xCloud.
More than seven years after its Xbox 360 debut, GTA 5 is still very popular, thanks largely to the popular GTA Online mode. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to find the action shooter in their library again from Thursday (April 8th) and download it as part of the flat rate. Microsoft will only provide Grand Theft Auto 5 for the Xbox Series X and Xbox One. The PC version is (so far) not available for free. The game also supports the Redmond-based cloud gaming option, with which GTA 5 can be streamed independently of the consoles on Android smartphones and tablets

In its most recent blog post, Microsoft also confirms seven more titles that will be added to Xbox Game Pass over the next few days. These include console games like NHL 21, MLB The Show 21, Rain on your Parade, and Zombie Army 4: Dead War. The latter two are also available for Windows PCs in addition to Pathway. Disneyland Adventures and Rush: A Disney / Pixar Adventure are offered exclusively for xCloud and game streaming.
The latest adjustments to the touch controls show that the cloud gaming function of the Xbox Game Pass is the focus of the Redmond-based company. It should now be possible to play more than 50 new games “by finger” on smartphones and tablets without an Xbox controller. Well-known titles include Sea of Thieves, Gears 5, Minecraft Dungeons, Dragon Quest XI and Slay the Spire. Game Pass members can find a detailed list in the game overview, which can be filtered according to the “Xbox Touch controls”.
