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

While plucky little outfit OnLive may have crashed and burnt in their early attempt to bring game streaming to the mass market, Sony have seen some success with their PlayStation Now service.

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. Streaming direct and interactive via Chrome, they'll be showcasing their tech with the ever-photogenic Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

The plan that Google has been working on involves use of its cloud servers to broadcast the games to users over the internet. If you meet those requirements, you can sign up to be considered as a tester over on the Project Stream website.

Google is looking to tackle various issues that arise from streaming services, such as buffering and visual anomalies including graphical degradation. Project Stream's test program kicks off on October 5, which is also Odyssey's official launch date. Though the footage appears to be running relatively smoothly at 1080p/60fps, input lag and other factors could not be ascertained from what has been shown.




Google said anyone wanting to try the service needs a home internet connections 'capable of 25 megabits per second'.

'For this test, we're going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming-a blockbuster video game'.

Many companies have tried to make game streaming a reality, but up until now, none of them have managed to catch on, with most failing altogether. 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.
