Google confirmed that it’s working on a game streaming service a couple of months ago. It disclosed the technical test it was conducting on Project Stream to see just how well game streaming into the Chrome browser works. It’s expanding the test now and is offering a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to those who sign up for the trial.
The Project Stream test from Google is based on a fully playable version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Participants will receive 1,000 Helix credits for free which they can spend in the game. Moreover, any players than spend a minimum of an hour playing the game in Project Stream will receive a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for PC or Mac through Ubisoft’s Uplay platform.
Ubisoft does point out that players who already have a copy of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey linked to their Uplay account will not be eligible to get a free copy of the game even if they take part in the Project Stream test.
Any in-game items earned and all game saves will transfer over to the free PC copy. Ubisoft mentions that any unspent credits will not transfer to the copy. Players that meet the criteria for the free game will receive an email after January 15th. They have until then to log their hour of gameplay in Project Stream. Those who are interested can sign up for Project Stream here. This promotion is limited to the U.S. only.
