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

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

Called Project Stream, the new service aims to solve the problem of game streaming in the same way tech did the same for music, and video.

'We've partnered with one of the most innovative and successful video game publishers, Ubisoft, to stream their soon-to-be released Assassin's Creed Odyssey to your Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop, ' explains product manager Catherine Hsiao of the project. We'll have to wait and see just how well Project Stream performs when the test starts October 5, but if any company has the resources to make such an ambitious idea work for real, it's Google. But what if you could play the latest AAA titles - say, Assassin's Creed Odyssey - right within Chrome?

Potential issues with retaining Internet personalities in the gaming field has not deterred Google, however, with the company hosting an annual Indie Games Festival and the Change the Game program, an initiative created to bring more women into the world of mobile game development.

The public test will be open to a limited number of participants based in the USA who have access to internet connections capable of 25 megabits per second.




The ultimate challenge for streaming games is minimal, consistent latency. It seems like there were actually some truth behind those rumors as today Google announced Project Stream. Better yet, Project Stream has a fairly short list of requirements, including "a reliable internet connection" (Google recommends 25 Mbps download speeds), accounts with both Google and Ubisoft, and of course, an installation of Chrome.

Console quality video game play streamed online as a service, hosted on servers in the internet cloud, faces challenges including moving data quickly enough to avoid lags in action or imagery.

You can throw your name in the hat at the official Project Stream website. In order to access Project Stream you need to be residing in the United States and have a 25Mbps connection along with a computer running Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, or Linux.

It was rumored several years ago that YouTube may be seeking the purchase of rival Twitch, a dedicated live stream platform. The firm's YouTube acquisition, years past, opened the door to countless YouTubers who earned themselves a dedicated following by posting and streaming game reviews, playthroughs, and more.
