Right after Sony’s “State of Play” stream for PlayStation, Microsoft followed up with its own “Inside Xbox” presentation, announcing the launch of Project xCloud‘s public trial as well as dropping a teaser trailer for DayZ‘s latest DLC.

For those unaware, Project xCloud — which was announced last October and teased at this year’s E3 — is Xbox‘s upcoming streaming service for its games. The service extends beyond the Xbox console and allows gamers to also play their favorite titles on phones and tablets. Microsoft has now announced that public testing for xCloud will begin sometime in October, with user registration now underway. Fans based in the US, UK or Korea can now apply for a chance to be selected, but you’ll also need an Android phone or tablet with Bluetooth 4.0 support and a Bluetooth wireless Xbox One controller. The four titles included in the preview are Halo 5 Guardians, Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, and Killer Instinct. Those interested can sign up over at Microsoft’s website now.

Aside from xCloud, the presentation also revealed a teaser trailer for zombie survival game DayZ‘s upcoming DLC, which will bring to the game a fresh new map called Livonia. Largely reminiscent of PUBG‘s Erangel map, the teaser depicts a new environment spanning across large fielded areas and forests, with crumbling, abandoned housings dotted all over. There’s currently no release date yet for DayZ‘s new Livonia DLC, so stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in gaming, Sony is releasing a Death Stranding PlayStation 4 Pro bundle.
