Google has announced Project Stream, a game streaming service that it is calling a “technical test”. The aim of the service is solving the issues around interactive video streaming. The company has partnered with Ubisoft to stream Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to a test group of users. Streaming through the Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop.
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. When streaming TV or movies, consumers are comfortable with a few seconds of buffering at the start. But streaming high-quality games requires latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphic degradation.
It seems that, Google was looking into developing a game streaming service that would stream to Chromecast devices. Main motive of project stream is to address issues like graphic degradation and buffering that currently cause issues with game streaming. Mainly with AAA titles like those from the Assassin’s Creed franchise. To play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, You’ll need a home internet connection of at least 25mbps to play the game smoothly. Test users must be at least 17 and live in the US to participate.
