Google's Project Stream: Chrome becomes testbed for game streaming services

Google's Project Stream lets you play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Chrome

Google's Project Stream Wants to Make Game Streaming Awesome

Called Project Stream, the new service aims to solve the problem of game streaming in the same way tech did the same for music, and video. We'll have to wait and see just how well Project Stream performs when the test starts October 5, but if any company has the resources to make such an ambitious idea work for real, it's Google.

The two firms will allow Assassin's Creed Odyssey to your Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop.

If you're eager for the chance to try Project Stream for yourself - or just play one of the best open-world games out there for the price of free - Google is offering sign-ups on Project Stream's site for U.S. citizens 17 and up. Users can sign up for Project Stream to test the upcoming game on the Chrome browser.

The ultimate challenge for streaming games is minimal, consistent latency.

In addition to appointing an independent chairman, Musk will be ineligible to be re-elected as chairman for three years. According to SEC , this settlement will assist Tesla to strengthen its corporate governance and protect its investors.

"The incredible visual fidelity of its world combined with the mechanical demands of being a Spartan mercenary in Ancient Greece make "Assassin's Creed Odyssey" the flawless candidate to push Project Stream to its limits", Ubisoft said.

Google has unveiled a radical new streaming service it hopes will one day replace games consoles. They're looking for people with internet speeds of 25Mb/s or higher.

Game streaming is taking off, as services like PlayStation Now and NVIDIA's GeForce Now attract more mainstream attention. For this test, you're going to need, at minimum, a connection rated at 25 megabits per second. Google was previously rumored to be developing a subscription-based game streaming service that would be offered over Chromecast or even a Google-made console. If you're wondering what's up with the latter, that's because it comes close to the full price of the game on other platforms: JPY 9,072 on PS4 and Xbox One.

There are limited spaces available for Project Stream, but if you're interested in participating, you can apply on our website. I'll let the game explain it to you:Exploration Mode is pretty simple - all it does is remove any waypoint markets from the game and encourages you to find things yourself.
