Google's Project Stream Will Let You Play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Chrome

Assassins-Creed-Odyssey-1024x576

Google has announced Project Stream, a "technical test" that allows users to play graphics intensive PC games through the company's Chrome internet browser. Both companies made the announcement today as they begin working together to test the Project Stream service, with players being given a chance to try out the latest entry in the Assasin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

In a blog post detailing the project's debut, Google notes that game streaming comes with a unique set of challenges not seen in TV or film streaming since "streaming high-quality games requires latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphic degradation".

HEXUS have featured Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey in previous news pieces and Google has chosen this game, and a partnership with Ubisoft, to help it refine the Project Stream game streaming technology.

You'll need a good internet connection as the game will be streamed to your computer, much like how video is delivered from services like Netflix.

The catch: There are a limited number of spots for Project Stream. Google hopes to solve that problem.

Now, Google is joining their ranks, using its already-impressive cloud computing infrastructure and streaming know-how to power Project Stream, a beta-test programme to run triple-A PC games directly in the Chrome web browser.

Reports have been swirling around Google's development of a subscription-based game streaming service for several months.

In an interview with IGN, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot discussed the future of streaming in games, saying "Technology is actually going in that direction".

On the other hand, Twitch and Microsoft are also trying their luck to grab the slice of the upcoming streaming industry.

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".
