Google Project Stream will let you play Assassin’s Creed in Chrome

AC ODyssey 2

Google has unveiled Project Stream, a test of a Chrome-based streaming service that aims to let players dive into triple-A caliber games while armed with only a web browser and powerful internet connection.

Anyone who's accepted into the beta test will be able to play Odyssey in their browsers on a laptop or desktop starting Friday, Google said.

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.

"We're going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming - a blockbuster video game", Google product manager Catherine Hsiao said in a blog post. The game is officially available on October 5 and it will be playable through Chrome with Project Stream.

After the much wait and speculation, the search giant has finally launched the game streaming project named as Project Stream.

While the Assassins Creed series has seen some changes over the past few entries, Assassins Creed Odyssey blows things right open. However, Google will be streaming the entire game's visuals, as well as you inputs from a controller or keyboard and mouse, over the internet. It's a new video game streaming service created to allow high-end PC and console games to be played via Chrome. Specifically, the firm is looking for those with 25 mbps or higher. In order to access Project Stream you need to be residing in the U.S. and have a 25Mbps connection along with a computer running Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, or Linux.

You can throw your name in the hat at the official Project Stream website. Another company called Shadow also offers a game streaming service that gives you access to a high-end computer in the cloud.

In 2014, the company reportedly planned to buy Twitch, a live streaming video platform popular with gamers before Amazon beat them to it. In short, the new video game streaming service is created to run high-end PC games on the Google Chrome browser.
