Assassin's Creed Multiplayer Could Return in the Future

Assassin's Creed Multiplayer Could Return in the Future

The Project Stream test begins on October 5 for a limited number of participants, but how long the test will last has not yet been announced.

"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.

Console quality video game play streamed online as a service, hosted on servers in the internet cloud, faces challenges including moving data quickly enough to avoid lags in action or imagery.

Google offered a glimpse of what the streaming service will look like in the clip below.

Called Project Stream, it will let users stream games in real time to Google's Chrome browser.

In order to participate in Project Stream, you have to apply through the Project Stream website and you should have an Internet connection capable of at least 25 MB/S.

Google's signup page for the Assassin's Creed Odyssey test asks applicants to share their email address and zip codes to potentially gain access to the test.

Ever since the release of Assassin's Creed Unity in 2014, the subsequent titles in the franchise have launched as exclusively single-player games.

To qualify for the trial you must be 17 years or older and live in the U.S. and have a reliable 25Mbps internet connection to your home. Be sure to check back soon for more guides, or sound off in the comments with a question and we'll do our best to get you an answer.

If you're eager for the chance to try Project Stream for yourself - or just play one of the best open-world games out there for the price of free - Google is offering sign-ups on Project Stream's site for USA citizens 17 and up. You will need to be a 17-years or older resident of the U.S., ideally with a 25 megabits per second connection to quality, though.

Reports have been swirling around Google's development of a subscription-based game streaming service for several months.

So what is this streaming platform, exactly?

Just like GeForce Now, the idea of Project Stream is to allow users to play graphics intensive games on their device regardless of their specs.
