Google has revealed that it is testing a game streaming service, code-named Project Stream, with the aim of solving the issues associated with current game streaming offerings.
Google has also announced that it is partnering up with Ubisoft to stream their upcoming game Assassin’s Creed Odyssey as the first test case. Users will be able to stream the game through Google’s Chrome browser using a desktop PC or laptop.
Game streaming has been seen as a sort of the holy grail in the gaming industry, with many issues such as graphics degradation and buffering plaguing many of the current offerings. The company aims to solve these issues with their testing and will hopefully be able to offer a stable service in the future.
Those that are interested can sign up to be part of the test service, but Google has stated that space for the Project Stream test will be limited and, more importantly, that an internet connection speed of at least 25mbps will be needed for the game to run smoothly.
So if you are hankering for some Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and have a fast enough connection, Project Stream might be something you would want to sign up for.
