On October 5, Google is going to open up a test of Project Stream to a limited number of people.

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 can watch some actual footage of gameplay below of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Like Nvidia's GeForce Now, the Google service would offload the work of rendering graphics to beefy computers elsewhere, allowing even the cheapest PCs to play high-end games.

You can throw your name in the hat at the official Project Stream website.

Google has unveiled Project Stream, a test of a Chrome-based streaming service that aims to let players dive into triple-A caliber games while armed with only a web browser and powerful internet connection. However, you must have an internet connection of 25 Mb/s or above to be eligible.

Google is looking for a select group of gamers to test out Project Stream to see if there are issues and how best to correct them.


For these testers, of course, playing the game for the duration of this test will be absolutely free - don't worry, Google's getting everything it wants in the data generated from this test. This experimental technology can allegedly stream a AAA game to your browser with minimal lag and no graphical degradation.

You must have or be willing to get a Google Account, a Ubisoft account, and Chrome.

'The idea of streaming such graphically-rich content that requires near-instant interaction between the game controller and the graphics on the screen poses a number of challenges, ' it revealed. You need to have at least 25Mbps of download bandwidth to use Project Stream.

The firm met with big video game companies at the Game Developers Conference in March and took meetings at the E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, it has been claimed.
