The test run will start tonight
The top gaming firm EA has revealed that they are introducing a technical test for its forthcoming project Atlas Cloud Streaming Service. The service will be available tonight at 10 PM PT and 1 AM ET and it will enable any user who has EA origin account to get in and test the new in developmental cloud-based gaming service. The testing will start today and will go on for two weeks.
The EA has chosen four games for the players which include FIFA 19, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed Rivals and Unravel. Ken Moss, the Chief Technology Officer said, “Company is looking to see how games perform in real-world scenarios, particularly in regards to things like latency and jitter.”
The exercise is to develop better gaming services
Moss also told that EA is planning to use Amazon Web Services and public cloud to bring the gaming servers near to the gamers. The games which were chosen are a deliberate effort to test run games from diverse genres which require different graphical demand. This helps in finding the lag that erodes the game in multiplayer mode.
The streaming technology will enable the EA games on different kinds of platforms such as PC, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. But the company did not reveal in which platform they are going to run the trail. The games who will take part in the test will able to sync game progress from the cloud.
The company did not give any details when they are going to release the Atlas-based cloud gaming service in the market and what it will cost the users. The test is just a first step and has less impact but it will help the company to leverage its status above the competition.
