Google tests games streaming tech in Chrome with Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey

French publishing firm Ubisoft and tech giant Google have announced a partnership to stream the upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey to the latter's Chrome browser.

That's according to a blog post from Google in which the company revealed that a "limited number of participants" in the US will be able to play the forthcoming historical murder simulator free of charge in their Chrome browser.

The initiative, part of Project Stream, is currently limited to laptops and PC.

It's little surprise that Ubisoft is playing around with streaming technology. The French firm always appears to be messing about with cutting-edge technology including AI, machine learning and the blockchain.
