Project Stream is Google’s new streaming gameplay platform that runs on Chrome. Testing keys for AC: Odyssey went out today.
Initial thoughts: Given that my graphics card apparently can’t run this game (I’ve tried five or six times and never made it all the way to choosing a horse), it’s amazing that it just works in my browser. You’re not allowed to change the graphics settings, but it looks good to me. It runs in fullscreen mode. There’s a tiny bit of input lag but it’s not bad enough to affect the game much.
I know this probably won’t be available to the mass market anytime soon, but it’s good enough that it’s making me rethink the new PC I was about to buy because my seven-year-old machine couldn’t run Odyssey.
