Google to test game-streaming service with latest Assassin's Creed

Google to test game-streaming service with latest Assassin's Creed

Google isn't saying how far along Project Stream actually is, and whether it'll launch any time soon. Google is hoping to change that, demonstrating with 1080p and 60fps footage of Odyssey running on their streaming technology.

At the moment, Project Stream is inviting users to apply on the site to be included. You need to have at least 25Mbps of download bandwidth to use Project Stream. "Starting on October 5, a limited number of participants will get to play the latest in this best-selling franchise at no charge for the duration of the Project Stream test".

Google is looking to tackle various issues that arise from streaming services, such as buffering and visual anomalies including graphical degradation.

Google is testing a game-streaming service, dubbed Project Stream, that'll let you play PC games on Chrome.

The blog post makes it clear that this is just the beginning of a more substantial initiative which will see Google throw its hat into the ring in the gaming market.

Michael Avenatti identifies new Kavanaugh accuser as Julie Swetnick
Swetnick, 55, who lives in Washington, D.C., said she graduated from Gaithersburg High School in Montgomery County, Maryland. Ford has accused Kavanaugh of trying to force himself on her at a high school party in the early 1980s when he was 17.

Google is continuing to invest in streaming, and to help fine tune its newly unveiled Project Stream initiative, the company is turning to Ubisoft.

Google made the announcement of this private test on its own blog along with a partnership with Ubisoft to christen the service with the brand-new Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

There's a very limited number of slots available for Project Stream, and testers will need to have a connection of 25 megabits per second or higher and reside in the United States.

Reports have been swirling around Google's development of a subscription-based game streaming service for several months. The quality of this official recording doesn't look great, though it's tough to say how much that will show in the actual streams.

In 2014, the company reportedly planned to buy Twitch, a live streaming video platform popular with gamers before Amazon beat them to it.
