Google's Project Stream lets you play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Chrome

Nichole VegaOct 02, 2018

Game streaming is taking off, as services like PlayStation Now and NVIDIA's GeForce Now attract more mainstream attention.

Google announced Project Stream today, which allows Google Chrome users to stream video games. "Starting on October 5, a limited number of participants will get to play the latest in this best-selling franchise at no charge for the duration of the Project Stream test".

Google's game streaming service seems quite promising, especially because of the fact that it works through a browser.

In our review of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, we called the game "Amazing" saying, "While there are definite rough edges, Odyssey sets a new bar for Assassin's Creed games and holds its own in the eternal debate over the best open-world roleplaying games ever".

Sadly, the Project Stream test-run is limited to America only, although hopefully they'll be testing it in other regions soon.

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

"When streaming TV or movies, consumers are comfortable with a few seconds of buffering at the start, but streaming high-quality games requires latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphic degradation", project manager Catherine Hsiao wrote in the announcement. You'll need a home internet connection capable of reaching speeds of at least 25 Mbps, and testers need to be 17 years old or older. If you want to sign up, you can do so on the Project Stream website. You'll also need a Google account, an Ubisoft account, and the Chrome browser installed.

Google bills Project Stream as "a technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming". For controls, you have options of a keyboard and mouse or a USB (not Bluetooth) game controller.
