Electronic Arts has announced that it will be running a closed technical trial for Project Atlas, its new cloud gaming service. All players with an Origin account can now sign-up for a chance to join the test.
EA chief technology officer Ken Moss made the announcement on Medium, stating: "For EA, our continued focus will be on making sure our games will be ready for a cloud-powered future where our players can engage and enjoy anytime, anywhere, and on any device,"
"To that end, I’m excited to share that we’ll be taking an important step in this learning journey as we host an exclusive external trial for our players to experience games streamed through EA’s cloud technology," Added Moss.
The trial will help EA understand how its games perform in real-life scenarios and to make sure they provide a seamless experience. Those chosen will have FIFA 19, Titanfall 2, Unravel, and Need for Speed Rivals to try out on the platform.
EA is just one name in the growing list of companies looking to leverage the power of the cloud in gaming. Google Stadia and Microsoft's Project xCloud have a head start with Stadia arriving in November 2019 and xCloud expected even sooner in October.
