Google's Project Stream lets gamers play straight through the Chrome browser

Assassins-Creed-Odyssey-1024x576

Now, Google has announced its Project Stream that will allow players to stream Assassin's Creed Odyssey directly to their Chrome browser.

A Google logo in an office building in Zurich September 5, 2018. A limited beta test will kick off on October 5, and will allow participants to stream the full version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey completely free.

Google Project Stream is a technical test that is created to "push the limits " of streaming "with one of the most demanding applications for streaming-a blockbuster video game". Apparently, Google feels confident enough now to start testing the waters with the new streaming service.

Game streaming is one of the hottest topics in the industry right now, and the world's racing to flawless it. In order to access Project Stream you need to be residing in the USA and have a 25Mbps connection along with a computer running Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, or Linux.

To have a chance at being selected to participate in the project, you'll have to sign up for Project Stream via the project's website.

But it admitted there were technical challenges involved in streaming graphically rich content via a browser. The way Project Stream works is that it streams gameplay from a computer in the cloud while your PC sends the keyboard and mouse commands. Graphics degradation is also a concern with game streaming, so not only does latency have to be low enough that there isn't severe input lag, but it has to look good too. Are you going to apply to the test?

News of the potential return for multiplayer was revealed during an interview between Game Informer and Ubisoft CCO Serge Hascoet.

In their own words, here is Google describing the massive scope of Project Stream.

In partnership with Ubisoft, the search giant is planning on bringing Assassin's Creed Odyssey to your home via the Chrome browser. It's also only limited to users aged over 17 years, and those who live in the United States.
