EA to run technical trial of its cloud platform

Project Atlas technical trial kicks off Wednesday. It’s a cloud gaming service from Electronic Arts.

About the trial

The trial will be closed. Some players will be able to play FIFA 19, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed: Rivals, and Unravel in the cloud. Those interested can apply for registration with Project Atlas right now. But this requires an account with EA Origin.

According to EA, this is not an official beta test. The participation of real players will allow the company to test the power of the service in various conditions. For the same reason, titles of very different genres and graphic requirements were selected. The creators of the platform will measure any latency occurring at maximum resolutions. The trial will be cross-platform, according VentureBeat .

About Project Atlas

Project Atlas was announced late last year. The platform has two goals.

The platform has features similar to Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud.

Outside of gaming, EA intends to use Project Atlas as an integrated platform for developing games based on the Frostbite engine. The latter aspect of the service will not be tested yet.

The approximate release dates for Project Atlas are unknown.
