Google Shows Off New Streaming Tech Using Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Earlier today, Google upload a video of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, the latest game in the Assassin's Creed series, running on what the tech giant calls Project Stream. The video outputs at 1080p and 60 frames per second and the technology is still very nascent, but seems impressive for what they're showing off. Check it out below.

While Google dropped the video onto their channel today fairly context-free, it fits in with a number of reports about Google's future gaming plans. In February, reports came in that Google was working on something called Project Yeti, a streaming service that would run modern, major console games with comparatively little quality loss. The idea would be to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in a browser window as easily as you could play it on an Xbox One. That service is now official as Project Stream.

The plan, Google says, is to launch Assassin's Creed Odyssey as part of the streaming service this Friday.

Overwatch's Halloween Terror Event Starts Next Week

On October 9, prepare for a scare as Overwatch unleashes this year's Halloween Terror Event.  

The quick announcement trailer features Chateau Guillard transformed from upscale manor to creepy mansion, but that's probably not the only thing changing. Last year, Overwatch introduced new skins, emotes, loot boxes, and game modes to celebrate the spookiest time of year.  While nothing has been officially announced, this year is sure to have its own batch of seasonally-themed goodies. 

The Overwatch Halloween Terror Event will run from October 9 to October 31, giving you three weeks to confront the evils lurking in their "monolithic lair."

Reader Discussion – When's The Last Time You Chose Replaying An Old Game Over A New Release?

Look: I really was going to play through Shadow Of The Tomb Raider (Kim's review here), I promise. I installed it, played through the first two hours and...well, I kept hoping it would get better but It didn't hook me so I gave up on it.

That's half of the story at least. I mean, it didn't help matters that Grand Theft Auto IV was right there, with Niko Bellic's enthralling tale of getting lost in the drenches of the American Dream and Roman's rapturous voice singing COUSIN, LET'S GO BOWLING right there. How could I resist?

I didn't. Now, three days later, I've got 20ish hours logged into my fourth playthrough of GTA IV, setting up Niko with hilariously awful dates when he's not doing dirty work for the government or your local wannabe kingpin. Guess what, gang? More than a decade later, Grand Theft Auto IV still rocks. Shocker.
