Google's game streaming beta lets you play Assassin's Creed Odyssey for free

Assassin’s Creed Multiplayer Could Return in the Future

"We've been working on Project Stream, a technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming", Google product manager Catherine Hsiao wrote in a Monday blog post.

The company is, however, going to allow a select few to partake in its testing and will allow them to play the game, starting October 5, for free in their browser at 1080p, 60fps.

Of course, latency is a more major concern in game streaming than it is in music and video. Combine it with the fully customisable HUD, which gives you the option to remove pretty much every marker on-screen, and you've got a game that just dares you to immerse yourself in it for hours on end. In order to access Project Stream you need to be residing in the U.S. and have a 25Mbps connection along with a computer running Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, or Linux. Even PC users can play older PlayStation games remotely now via the subscription service, although you're at a bit of a disadvantage without an official Sony controller.

Google's new Project Stream will allow you to play AAA games via a browser stream.

Pogba will be sold in January - Man Utd legend Ince
Jose Mourinho isn't exactly a stranger to player bust-ups but this time he wants the backing of the Manchester United board in his feud with Paul Pogba .

In a blogpost outlining its plans for Project Stream, the search engine said it wanted to take streaming to "the next level". You'll need to be 17 or over, in the US, and have an internet connection capable of at least 25 megabits per second.

But there's a little more to streaming a game than a movie. It has partnered with Ubisoft to build a demo of Project Stream around the upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

This won't be the only version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey available via a streaming service.

These participants will have access to the game until mid-January of 2019 and Google will start sending out invitations soon for the next two months.
