Google's Project Stream Will Let You Play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Chrome

The company stated that there were a number of technical challenges involved in streaming a game to a browser, including minimising latency between user inputs and on-screen graphics. From 5 October a limited number of invited participants will be able to play the new Assassin's Creed Odyssey in their Chrome browser thanks to the new streaming tech. "Only a select few will be participating in Project Stream, but everyone can experience the journey of either Alexios or Kassandra when Assassin's Creed Odyssey launches October 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC".

Conenamed Yeti and now called Project Stream, it turns any laptop or desktop with a high speed connection into a machine capable of runnign the latest hit games.


Today, Google announced Project Stream, a service that'll let you play such AAA games as Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Chrome, all detailed in a brief development blog post.

"There will be one more console generation and then after that, we will be streaming, all of us".


We already knew that Ubisoft would be bringing Assassin's Creed Odyssey to the cloud for Nintendo Switch owners in Japan but it looks like the game will be streamable in other parts of the world too. The new video game streaming service is created to run high-end PC games on the Google Chrome browser. Like Nvidia's GeForce Now, the Google service would offload the work of rendering graphics to beefy computers elsewhere, allowing even the cheapest PCs to play high-end games. In order to access Project Stream you need to be residing in the United States and have a 25Mbps connection along with a computer running Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, or Linux.

In 2014, the company reportedly planned to buy Twitch, a live streaming video platform popular with gamers before Amazon beat them to it. The firm's YouTube acquisition, years past, opened the door to countless YouTubers who earned themselves a dedicated following by posting and streaming game reviews, playthroughs, and more.


If you're accepted into the program, you'll have access to the game until "mid-January", giving you around three months to sink your teeth into Ubisoft's upcoming title.
