After the much wait and speculation, Google has finally lifted the curtains off its under-development game streaming project. Called Project Stream, this service aims to bring the ability to stream games right inside the Chrome browser.
For the starting, Google has partnered with Ubisoft to bring the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to your computer’s Chrome web browser. As a result of this partnership, initially, selected participants will be able to play the game during trial perioud.
The first phase of Project Stream testing will begin on October 5th, which will continue till January 2019. During this period, the users won’t have to pay any charge.
To stream the game on Chrome via Project Stream, the players must be having internet connections of 25 megabits per second or more. This trial is only open for the US users who are above 17 years. You’ll also need a Google account (obviously) and Ubisoft account.
The gaming companies and tech giants are still not focussing much on game streaming mostly due to technical constraints. This whole Project Stream push from Google, if successful, could turn out to be a game changer for PC gaming. Other players like Twitch and Microsoft are also trying to grab the slice of the upcoming streaming industry, and it’ll be interesting to see who ends up being the best.
