Google’s Project Stream Lets You Play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey On Your Chrome Browser
Google has announced that users will be able to play the latest Assassin’s Creed Odyssey right on their Chrome browser, without the need of a high-end gaming PC. Google is partnering with Ubisoft and this plan is titled ‘Project Stream’. The company will use a limited number of people to conduct its first test, later this week.
Google might change the way we play games through Project Stream. With Project Stream, Google wants to make all kinds of games available on your Chrome Browser. This eliminates the need to download games or the need for high-end specifications on your device. Streaming such high- end games has its limitations. Google has to ensure that there is almost instant interaction between the game controller and the graphics on the screen. It has to figure out a way to do this, without compromising on graphics and avoiding any lag. Google promises to ensure all this, while providing a cutting edge experience.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is yet to be released. The lucky few who get to be a part of the program will be able to play it for free. There are a few conditions to be a part of Project Stream. First, you have to be a resident of the US. Unfortunately, the testing is still not open for other countries. Second, you need to have an Internet connection capable of 25 mbps or more and need to be at least 17 years of age. If you match all these criteria and want to be a part of the project, you can sign up.
The fact that streaming games has evolved from just being able to view other people playing a game to playing an entire game using just your browser, without the need to download it, is truly amazing. If the project gets through its testing, we might see a future where we do not need anything but a good internet connection to play any game. It will eliminate the need for high-end PC setups, helping gamers who cannot afford the same. The future of gaming is exciting, to say the least.
