Project Stream isn't necessarily limited to games, but that's where Google is starting.
Google was developing a subscription-based game streaming service that could work either on its Chromecast or a Google-made console, the Information had reported in February.
You must own a computer with reliable internet access (Google will test it for you).
Google isn't saying how far along Project Stream actually is, and whether it'll launch any time soon.
If that day sounds familiar, that's because it's the Assassin's Creed Odyssey release date - yes, the latest AC is going out gratis to a select handful of potential testers.

The point of the test is to deliver the game at a high graphical fidelity with low latency.

Requirements outlined by Google include users to be United States residents that are 17 or older, a computer with an internet connection capable of 25 megabits per second, a controller or mouse and keyboard for input, as well as a Google account, an Ubisoft account, and the Google Chrome web browser.
