Google Announces Project Stream, Which Lets You Stream Games In Chrome

Google's Project Stream lets you play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Chrome Google's Project Stream Wants to Make Game Streaming Awesome
Michele Schwartz | 02 October, 2018, 14:14

The game industry is hoping for streaming to be the next big thing, and Google is hoping to be one of the first adopters.

While still a test, the service does not seem to be restricted to video game streaming as the project is advertised as "a test of Google's streaming technologies in the US".

These participants will have access to the game until mid-January of 2019 and Google will start sending out invitations soon for the next two months. Can Google slay the beast that has defeated so many others in the past?

Google spends the rest of its announcement blog post detailing the difficulties in streaming interactive content at such fidelity (i.e. a blockbuster video game) with the near-zero latency required for interactivity.

If Google manages to crack the code on browser-based game streaming, through the most-used web browser in the United States, it could have massive implications on the gaming industry. You'll also need a computer, and 25 megabits per second of internet speed (Google can help test your connection to make sure you meet this mark). The Project Stream test will work on Windows, macOS, ChromeOS, and Linux, and supports wired USB controllers and external mice. If you're playing a video game at 60fps, these services have 16 milliseconds to receive a button press over the Internet, render a new, live video frame, and send it back to you.

News of the potential return for multiplayer was revealed during an interview between Game Informer and Ubisoft CCO Serge Hascoet. Also, when you want to change something in the world in our games, right now the player has to download 20GB.

If that day sounds familiar, that's because it's the Assassin's Creed Odyssey release date - yes, the latest AC is going out gratis to a select handful of potential testers.
