Google launched a website were people could apply for invitations to take part in the test, which will feature free streaming play of "Assassin's Creed Odyssey" while Project Stream technology is put through its paces.
Google has officially lifted the wraps off Project Stream, a new service allowing users to stream content using the company's Internet browser, Chrome. Rather than taking another year off this year, Ubisoft is bringing the series back with Assassins Creed Odyssey, telling the tales of the Peloponnesian War with even more focus on action-role-playing gameplay.
"We're going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming - a blockbuster video game", Google product manager Catherine Hsiao said in a blog post.

Google's Project Stream test will begin with Assassin's Creed Odyssey on October 5th, but Google hasn't revealed additional details on the project yet. There will only be a few testers participating in the project, and signups are open right now via the official Google project page if you're interested in participating. The new video game streaming service is created to run high-end PC games on the Google Chrome browser. You'll also need a computer, and 25 megabits per second of internet speed (Google can help test your connection to make sure you meet this mark).
The biggest advantage of streaming, as opposed to physical discs or downloads, is that it removes hardware barriers for games.
In 2014, the company reportedly planned to buy Twitch, a live streaming video platform popular with gamers before Amazon beat them to it.
Google is developing a subscription-based game streaming service that could work either on its Chromecast or a Google-made console. It is recommended that you have a wired USB controller or mouse, and that you don't try and play the game via laptop trackpad.
