Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is Playable Right Through Chrome, If Google Picks You

02 October 2018

The initial launch is just a test, and Google says the project has limited spaces, so most of us probably won't get to try out the streaming service anytime soon, unless you are really lucky.

Normally, "Assassin's Creed Odyssey" requires an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or reasonably powerful gaming PC to play. You'll also need a Google account, an Ubisoft account, and the Chrome browser installed. Participants will be able to stream this week's Assassin's Creed Odyssey on their desktop or laptop via Chrome. As the protagonist, one of the titular assassins, you fight a vast conspiracy across land and sea. The technology, rather unimaginatively dubbed Project Stream, is only a technical test at this point, and will likely not be commercially available for a while. The company will send an email notification to those who are selected. Provided you are 17 years or older and live in the USA, you can sign up at projectstream.google.com. Specifically, the firm is looking for those with 25 mbps or higher.

Google's holding an event on October 9 to unveil the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, and should the company take some time to go into further detail about Project Stream and/or Yeti, we'll be sure to let you know.

Kavanaugh FBI Investigation Could Be Done Soon
Some Democratic members of Congress have accused the White House of stopping investigators from interviewing certain witnesses. The true test for Flake would come once the full Senate votes on the Kavanaugh nomination in the coming days, Walsh said.

According to analyst company IHS Markit, global spending on games content and services is expected to reach $129bn (£99bn) this year, making it the world's biggest entertainment market.

You must own a computer with reliable internet access (Google will test it for you). Given the push for a more "live service" support model for the newest game, with timed in-game challenges and DLC story expansions, the chances of seeing multiplayer of any sorts looks to be a way's away for Assassin's Creed fans. Nvidia is currently running a beta of its GeForce Now game streaming service. Do you think that the future of gaming lies in streaming?
