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

Officially announced on the Google blog here, the unimaginatively named Project Stream claims it can push high-end games from Google's servers directly onto your browser screen with minimal lag.

Back in February, Google was rumored to be seeking interest in the gaming market, with a brand new streaming service that would eventually be called Project Yeti, The project was apparently created to allow for quality game streaming at 1080p and 60 frames per second with minimal technical hiccups in Chrome. Starting on October 5, Google will unleash the test on a limited amount of would-be testers that have signed up through its registration web page.

Just like GeForce Now, the idea of Project Stream is to allow users to play graphics intensive games on their device regardless of their specs. 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.

The game industry is hoping for streaming to be the next big thing, and Google is hoping to be one of the first adopters. Google's Catherine Hsiao said, "When streaming TV or movies, consumers are comfortable with a few seconds of buffering at the start, but streaming high-quality games requires latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphic degradation".

Google's Project Stream goes into a semi-public beta on October 5, offering a "limited number of participants" the opportunity to test out the tech for free.

Google notes that you must be age 17 or older and have an internet connection capable of 25 megabits per second. Typically with AAA games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you need to either buy a physical copy and insert it into your gaming console whenever you want to play or download a digital copy with can be tens of gigabytes in size and take some time to download.

Google has enlisted the assassin's guild to help with its experiments into streaming tech.
