American video game company Electronic Arts (EA) recently made an announcement about launching a surprise closed technical trial for its upcoming Project Atlas cloud streaming service. It is a public two-week test, beginning September 9 (Monday) at 10 PM PT / 1 AM ET.
Those who sign up for the test with an EA Origin account will be able to play these four games via the cloud – FIFA 19, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed Rivals and Unravel. The company’s chief intent behind the trial is to ascertain how these games will perform in various real-life scenarios.
Ken Moss, Chief Technology Officer at Electronic Arts, said in a Medium post, ” First, we want to ensure that there is strong quality of service in cloud gaming by being able to adjust to real-world, often less than ideal, conditions such as unstable bandwidth and network strength. Over the last decade, latency and jitter have made cloud gaming a non-starter for any serious gamer. But now that the global cloud infrastructure is finally reaching ubiquity, EA is working on leveraging AWS and the public cloud so that we can deploy as close to the players as possible, even in the face of unstable networks and changes in bandwidth. This player test will help us to better understand how our games perform across real-life scenarios.”
Moss also pointed out that “one of the most exciting parts of cloud gaming will be the ability to deliver full-scale HD games to any device a player wants to use, such as a smart TV, OTT streaming devices, PC or Mac laptops, tablets, and smartphones. This means that you would be able to stream a Madden HD game directly to the smart TV in your living room, or even in a hotel room if you’re traveling. You could even also continue same session on the go, right on your smartphone.”
