Project Stream announced by Google

Google has officially lifted the wraps off Project Stream, a new service allowing users to stream content using the company's Internet browser, Chrome. 

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the first game that Google confirmed will support Project Stream, and will be available on October 5. A beta is being set up to test drive the service, and if you're chosen, you'll be able to stream Ubisoft's open-world title on launch day from a laptop or desktop.

Given that Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a massive game however, you probably won't be surprised to hear that Google is looking for users packing high-speed Internet. Specifically, the firm is looking for those with 25 mbps or higher. 

'We’ve been working on Project Stream, a technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming,' said Google. 'For this test, we’re going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming—a blockbuster video game.'

Project Stream's beta is only available in the US, mind, and there's a limited number of slots available. 

Meanwhile, Assassin's Creed Odyssey launches for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on Friday, with a Switch version coming via the cloud in Japan. The good news? It's one of the best Creeds to date.
