Google‘s upcoming cloud gaming service has partnered with Ubisoft to give free copies of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (PC) to US-based users who play a demo of the game on Project Stream for an hour before January 15th. The full copy will then be accessible via Uplay, at a time which has yet to be specified.
The Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Giveaway
The giveaway is part of a testing and promotional phase run by Google to fine-tune their new chrome-based cloud gaming service. It can be claimed only by those with IPs located in the US, and only after playing a demo version of The Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey for an hour before January 15th, 2019 on Project Stream.
The copy of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will then be gifted via Ubisoft’s gaming platform, Uplay. The progress made in the Project Stream demo will also be transferred to the final Uplay copy.

About Project Stream
Project Stream is a cloud gaming service unveiled by Google on October 1, 2018, seven days before Microsoft unveiled their own, Project xCloud. Cloud gaming allows direct and on-demand video streaming of games onto computers, consoles and mobile devices, similar to video on demand, but with full user controls and interaction, and the use of a thin client. The actual game is stored, executed, and rendered on a remote server, while the video results, which also include the control actions sent by the end user in real time, are streamed directly to (any) video-supporting device.
