"Google's Project Stream, the Ubisoft Platform Infrastructure, and the efforts of other companies will help unlock that potential and break down barriers that once prevented many from playing and enjoying our games".

Google has officially announced its new game streaming service, Project Stream, with an upcoming "technical test" revolving around the upcoming "Assassin's Creed Odyssey".

The first game to be playable via Project Stream is Assassin's Creed Odyssey starting October 5th with a small number of players trying out the game at no charge while involved in the testing process. The almost four-minute video shows off a number of features in the game, from scanning across lovely vistas, naval combat, and Alexios scaling the sides of large buildings.

United fans aren't sure of signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal
All the players are frustrated because they think we will be able to get a good result playing here. They were more than we wanted but we did well in the first half.

Google's game streaming service seems quite promising, especially because of the fact that it works through a browser. Graphics degradation is also a concern with game streaming, so not only does latency have to be low enough that there isn't severe input lag, but it has to look good too.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is now available to those who have pre-ordered the Collector's Edition and Ubisoft has detailed its day-1 patch.

"Assassin's Creed Odyssey" is projected to release October 5 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You'll need to be 17 or over, in the US, and have an internet connection capable of at least 25 megabits per second.
