Following rumors of its code-name Yeti project, Google recently officially unveiled its push to combat the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Project Stream. Straying from the traditional console route, Project Stream functions more like a service that allows users to stream games directly on their Google Chrome internet browser.
According to reports, the first game to be supported by the revolutionary step in gaming will be Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which is launching October 5. In a public release, Google noted that Project Stream serves as “a technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming” by pushing the limits. Additionally, Google revealed that it is looking for beta testers for the service with the only requirement being an Internet connection that can hold speeds of 25 megabits-per-second or higher.
