Back in October, Ricky was creaming himself over the news that Google were testing out Project Stream, a new game streaming service that would allow players to play games through Google Chrome. Now, Google is offering anybody who playtests this service a freebie.
The only game that can currently be tested on Project Stream is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and testing the game through the service will reward players with a free copy of the game. You only need to play the game for an hour to qualify for a free copy, which will be given to you through your Uplay account. Players have until January 15th to play their hour with free copies awarded after this date, and all save content and in-game items will carry over.
You can sign up to get involved through the Project Stream website. Unfortunately, the project is currently only open in the US, so this freebie will (obviously) only be available to US residents.
Ricky thinks that streaming is the future of gaming—largely because he’s too lazy to get off the couch and change a disc—and that Google will eventually sell their technology to the highest bidder (or to everyone who is willing to pay), so taking part in the test could make you a part of history.
