Google is taking streaming to the next level and has announced plans to stream the popular video game Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for free to a limited number of gamers. Called Project Stream, it will be trialled in the United States and can be participated by gamers aged 17 or older.
Writing about Project Stream, Google's product manager, Catherine Hsiao, said: "The technology and creativity behind these AAA [major] video games is extraordinary - from incredible detail and lifelike movement of the characters' skin, clothing, and hair, to the massive scale of the world in which the game unfolds, down to every last blade of grass.
"Every pixel is powered by an array of real-time rendering technology, artistry, visual effects, animation, simulation, physics and dynamics.
"We're inspired by the game creators who spend years crafting these amazing worlds, adventures and experiences. And we're building technology that we hope will support and empower that creativity."
