You Can Now Play Assasin's Creed Odyssey Via Chrome Browser


Internet giant Google has entered the video gaming world with a streaming service called Project Stream.


Google made the announcement on Monday, describing the Project Stream service as a technical test that will allow users to stream video games directly from the Chrome browser.

"Streaming media has transformed the way we consume music and video, making it easy to instantly access your favorite content,"Google's Product Manager, Catherine Hsiao said in a blog post. "Its a technically complex process that has come a long way in a few short years, but the next technical frontier for streaming will be much more demanding than video."

Video games usually requires heavy downloads and installs from third-party clients which usually takes up storage space. However, with the coming of Google's Project Stream, users won't need to do all the download and installation. All that will be required is a Chrome browser, a Google account, and a stable Internet connection that can deliver up to 25 MB per second of Internet speed.

"The idea of streaming such graphically-rich content that requires near-instant interaction between the game controller and the graphics on the screen poses a number of challenges," Google's blog read. "When streaming TV or movies, consumers are comfortable with a few seconds of buffering at the start, but streaming high-quality games latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphics degradation."

Google will let a limited number of users to try out the service for free by playing Assasin's Creed Odyssey which will be released by Ubisoft worldwide on Oct. 5. Same day that Google be letting some users to test the streaming service. Those who want to sign up for the Project Stream must be above the age of 17, and must be a resident of the US.
