The Samsung Galaxy S21 release date is fast approaching, with the new flagship from the South Korean smartphone giant out this Friday. And ahead of the Galaxy S21 arriving in Samsung fans’ hands EE are running a great deal which is perfect if you love gaming. The EE Gaming Unleashed deal gives you everything you need to access and play tonnes of great Xbox games via an S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra handset.
You may not realise this but you don’t need an Xbox Series X or Series S console to play must-have Xbox games. Thanks to the cloud-based Project xCloud service bundled with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, Android smartphones and tablets can run over 100 Xbox games.
Titles such as Gears 5, Destiny 2, Skyrim, Halo and Forza Horizon 4 can all be played on an Android device. That’s pretty impressive. And if you pick up an S21 on an EE Smart Plan you’ll be able to take advantage of this huge library of games.
To make this a more authentic gaming experience, EE’s Gaming Unleashed bundle is also throwing in a Razer Kishi controller. This essentially makes an Android device look similar to a Nintendo Switch, with a controller that comes in two parts being attached to either side of your phone when it is held vertical.
In total, all of these gaming goodies are worth £218. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs £10.99 per month while the Razer controller is priced at £87. If you want to get hold of this great money-saving deal then you can grab it when pre-ordering an S21 device right now.

Outlining the deal, the EE website says: “Pre-order any new Samsung Galaxy S21 phone on the UK’s no.1 network for gaming and you can claim the incredible Gaming Unleashed bundle worth £218 including 12 months Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Razer Kishi controller. What’s more, you can add our exclusive Smart Benefits like BT Sport Ultimate or Amazon Prime.”
Being a cloud-based service you need an internet connection to access the huge library of Xbox games on offer vix xCloud.
So if you are thinking of picking up this EE deal to play Xbox games on your shiny new Samsung phone it’s maybe best if you make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network when you play, instead of eating into your monthly data allowance.
EE said this offer is “free to customers on any Smart Plan when they take out the new Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, S21+ 5G, or S21 Ultra 5G”.
And that’s not all, with Samsung fans who pre-order the S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra also able to claim a free pair of Galaxy Buds Pro or Buds Live, plus a SmartTag tracker.
