Play 'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' for Free With Google's Project Stream

Play 'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' for Free With Google's Project Stream

The blog post makes it clear that this is just the beginning of a more substantial initiative which will see Google throw its hat into the ring in the gaming market.

In a surprise announcement Monday, Google revealed a partnership with Ubisoft to bring the upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey to your Chrome Browser.

Not much is known about the tech behind Project Stream as of writing, but starting now, U.S. residents with "reliable internet access", Chrome, and a Google account can sign up to test the service out for free.

It was previously reported that Google was experimenting with some sort of game streaming service that would allow players to stream the game to specific Chromecast-enabled devices.

Google isn't saying how far along Project Stream actually is, and whether it'll launch any time soon.

India, Pakistan at United Nations trade blame over failed bid for talks

"Assassin's Creed Odyssey" is projected to release October 5 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

What do you think of Google's venture into the gaming world? The team is asking for home users with connections of 25Mb / second and who are at least 17 living in the US. To be clear: this is not a service where people can stream footage of themselves playing video games like Twitch, it's a service that lets people play games without downloading them by streaming them over the internet.

For as much as it's discusses, game streaming is something that's still very much in its infancy.

The point of this testing is to stream "graphically-rich" content that as Google puts it, "requires near-instant interaction between the game controller and the graphics", to try and do so with milliseconds of latency and no graphic degradation. They want precision with controls and a game that still looks great.
