As Google explains it very well on his blog, how to consume entertainment products such as music or videos is changing thanks to streaming. The next market that the US giant is targeting is the video game in the cloud playable via its browser Chromium.
To move on to concrete things, Google had therefore launched Project Stream last October. To hit hard, the American giant had signed a partnership with Ubisoft so that his flagship game Assassin's Creed Odyssey the first title to be offered to the public. The goal was to get the game running in 1080p and 60 fps, regardless of the power of your computer. The only essential technical requirement is to have a connection of 25 megabits per second.
Google: Project Stream is now complete. Thank you to everyone who took part in the adventure!
Google had been clear by announcing, from its launch, that this game would only be a technical test, available for a limited time and had given mid-January as the end period. It is therefore logical that the test has now ended a few days ago. As a thank you, those who played Assassin's Creed Odyssey for more than an hour, via this service, should in the coming weeks expect to receive a digital copy of the game and credits.
It remains to be seen if Google could get all the necessary information or if the company will test again Project Stream with another game before launching a consumer product. To be continued !
