EA had announced plans to launch its own cloud streaming service called Project Atlas. Users with an EA Origin or Access account can sign up and register for the technical trial version of the undeveloped service. It is live now and limited users get access to the test run.
Announced Last Month In EA's news section was recently announced in a new media post by the company's chief technology officer, Ken Moss, a technical test of the Atlas project , For the tests, a limited number of players will be selected who will have access to games such as FIFA 19 Titanfall 2 Need for Speed Rivals and Riddling . Selecting these games will ensure that the service is efficiently tested for different genres and graphics. Whether it's a graphically intense game or a multiplayer FPS game, many factors are being tested.
With the "technical test" EA wants to test real challenges like "unstable bandwidth" and "network strength". So far, the only hurdle that has kept cloud gaming from becoming acceptable for serious games (sometimes even casual games) is the high latency. EA believes the cloud infrastructure is becoming more widespread worldwide. By using AWS servers, the company can provide the service closer to the players.
The test will support Full HD games on a range of devices, including Smart TVs (OTT) streaming devices, PC and Mac laptops, tablets and smartphones. It will include a feature that allows game sessions to continue from one device to another. This means that game progress can be stored on one device and displayed on all other devices where players can select one of them. Cross-play is also being tested to allow more players to play together or against each other.
To participate in the technical trial for EA Cloud games:
You need an EA account You have no, you must create a new one. Once you're logged in, follow this link to join the EA Community Playtesting, which includes testing for upcoming EA tracks. After signing up for Playtesting, you will have to wait patiently for the trial to be selected. The company did not specify exactly how many players will get access. If you are selected, it will appear in the "Playtests Available" section. The odds, however, are pretty low.
It is not clear when Project Atlas will launch its first closed or open beta for a larger group of players. As we wait, Google's Stadia (release some time in November) and Microsoft's xCloud approach their release. Neither of them has undergone a public test run, so we look forward to testing these services and understanding whether seamless cloud gaming is actually a reality. videos & more on Chandrayaan 2 Moon Mission in our # Chandrayaan2TheMoon domain.
