Google's new streaming test brings Assassin's Creed Odyssey to Chrome

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

Like video games? If so, you'll want to check out Google's Project Stream. Given that Project Stream will hopefully be running native PC versions of games, a wider variety of input devices should be supported, as well as control rebinding. By signing up for the Project Stream test run ahead of the start date, hopeful applicants can look to secure their spot in the Project Stream test. Oh, and that they're at least 17 years old (mature content, duh).

Google is looking to tackle various issues that arise from streaming services, such as buffering and visual anomalies including graphical degradation.

Google's focus on cloud-centric technologies is nothing new.

The first game to be playable via Project Stream is Assassin's Creed Odyssey starting October 5th with a small number of players trying out the game at no charge while involved in the testing process. It saves users from taking up hardware space with large video games (which can sometimes be larger than 100 GBs) and opens up the possibility of services that allow players to play games for a limited time on a subscription basis. You can watch some actual footage of gameplay below of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

She added: 'I think it's really important we stop building walls and start building bridges. Samantha continued , "The public were making a mockery of the family and it had to stop".

Google is continuing to invest in streaming, and to help fine tune its newly unveiled Project Stream initiative, the company is turning to Ubisoft. Anyone looking to try out the service must be a United States resident and at least 17 years old to participate.

Should you be interested, Google is now looking for people to test its new platform and further makes note that "Project Stream is geared toward home internet connections capable of 25 megabits per second, and you must be 17 years or older and live in the U.S.to participate".

It's no coincidence then that Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has been talking up the benefits of game streaming prior to this announcement, going as far as to say the PS5 and next Xbox are the last-generation of consoles.
