For awhile Google has been working on a game streaming service under the name Yeti. Now we received the official word that the project is real and will be called ‘Project Stream’. This service will allow users to stream games via their Google Chrome web browser. The tech giant has partnered with Ubisoft to show us their newest title Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Google has been wanting to solve the problem of gamers not being able to play games properly unless they have a high-end PC. With ‘Project Stream’ this will allow all of the high-end rendering to be offloaded elsewhere, which means even with the cheapest of PCs you can play graphically intensive games with little to no issue.
Other companies have tried out streaming services and failed, mainly because of input lag and latency. Since Google is giving it a shot, will this be any different? If you want to be a part of the beta program which begins this Friday when Assassin’s Creed Odyssey drops, you can sign up here. Keep in mind you will have to have internet speeds of at least 25 Mbps or higher. Take a look at the gameplay capture below and let me know if this looks good enough to take on the gaming world.
