Project Stream, is a “technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming,” according to Google.

The first test of the service will be open to a “limited number of participants” who will be able to play Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey via desktop Chrome browsers.

There some minimum requirements including a recommended minimum of a 25-megabits-per-second internet connection while users will need both a Google and a Ubisoft account.

World Health Organization Classification Of Gaming Disorder


As of Monday, June 18, gaming disorder is officially recognized as a mental health condition by the World Health Organization. It’s called gaming disorder, and it’s characterized by “a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior,”, or an addiction to gaming. Folks who suffer from the disorder are said to have “impaired control over gaming,” which is to say an inability to control the frequency, intensity, duration, and context of their habits. WHO also notes that those who prioritize video games over “other life interests and daily activities” and continue to escalate the amount that they play “despite the occurrence of negative consequences” are also showing symptoms of the newly classified disorder.

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which is created by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), has yet to recognize gaming as an official condition. However, the guide does include internet gaming disorder as a potential problem to continue monitoring for future inclusion.

Epic’s next mission is to change Fortnite from a compulsive pastime into a competitive e-sport. The company has pledged $100 million in prize money for the game’s first year of competitive play, and strategically announced its intention to host a Fortnite World Cup in 2019 in the middle of the Pro-Am stream to ensure the news had the maximum impact to its most valuable audience.

Fortnite has enjoyed headlines about obsessed MLB players, basketball pros’ self-described addictions, and its cross-over pop culture appeal. Big names in hip-hop and EDM like Drake and Diplo have participated in record-breaking live streams with Ninja, whose rise to stardom has been more meteoric these past nine months than any other internet celebrity in recent memory.
