In a blog post detailing the project's debut, Google notes that game streaming comes with a unique set of challenges not seen in TV or film streaming since "streaming high-quality games requires latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphic degradation". For starters, the first game that can be played through Project Stream is Assassin's Creed Odyssey with the first batch of testers will be able to experience the game via Chrome starting from 5 October onwards.
The company also included a sample of what its technology is now capable of doing with a three and a half minute video sample of AC Odyssey playing on a browser via Project Stream, shown above.
Google has revealed its new Project Stream platform, which it said is a technical test to solve the challenges of online game streaming.
If we look throughout, we will find that Google is the only company which is focussing more on game streaming.
While the Assassins Creed series has seen some changes over the past few entries, Assassins Creed Odyssey blows things right open. The new video game streaming service is created to run high-end PC games on the Google Chrome browser.
The idea behind cloud gaming is sound: Rather than needing an expensive high-power graphics card and processor in your desktop, cloud gaming farms out the heavy computational work to remote servers which render the game content then stream it back to you as a video.
