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

The company stated that there were a number of technical challenges involved in streaming a game to a browser, including minimising latency between user inputs and on-screen graphics. A beta is being set up to test drive the service, and if you're chosen, you'll be able to stream Ubisoft's open-world title on launch day from a laptop or desktop.

Gaming in the browser is a big goal, especially when you're talking about a graphically rich flagship game like Assassin's Creed, but that's exactly what Google is planning to do with Project Stream. They're looking for people with internet speeds of 25Mb/s or higher.

While still a test, the service does not seem to be restricted to video game streaming as the project is advertised as "a test of Google's streaming technologies in the US".

"There will be one more console generation and then after that, we will be streaming, all of us". This first test is only available in the USA, and there's a limited number of slots.

The game will be free-of-charge to play for the duration of the Project Stream test, which will end in mid-January.

Google's Project Stream test will begin with Assassin's Creed Odyssey on October 5th, but Google hasn't revealed additional details on the project yet.

With Google's impressive existing video streaming tech and capacity, hopefully Project Stream is the start of a hugely popular web destination with lots of classic streaming freebies alongside the income generating AAA releases. Hsiao has also warned that spaces are limited, leaving those interested in participating scrambling to apply on the official website. It's a new video game streaming service created to allow high-end PC and console games to be played via Chrome. You will need to be a 17-years or older resident of the USA, ideally with a 25 megabits per second connection to quality, though.

So what is this streaming platform, exactly? But the test is created to address the challenges of streaming the latest gaming content with little to no latency while maintaining the cutting-edge graphics.
