Bethesda has presented the technology of acceleration of streaming games Orion; demonstration of Doom on the way
Bethesda Softworks announced a bunch of patented technologies to create a streaming game under the name Orion. These sets are systems developed by id Software in the course of many years of research and development designed to reduce delays, bandwidth requirements and computing power needed to complete the work of streaming games.
We are not talking about self service from Bethesda Softworks — the Orion is a technology optimizations at the level of the engines under different streaming service like Google or Microsoft Stadia xCloud. Instead of the hardware approach technology id Software uses software tricks, to improve the efficiency of streaming games in the cloud.
It should be noted that technology Orion can work with any game engine and any streaming game platform. According to the creators, it not only reduces the delay by 20 %, but also reduces bandwidth requirements by 40 %. Sounds very interesting — let’s see how it will look in practice.
To further familiarization with the technology Bethesda Softworks invited those wishing to register in the club of Doom Slayers to participate in testing streaming Doom (2016) this year. Then invitations to participate in the test will be sent out to some of those who have registered. The first inspections will be performed on Apple devices with iOS platform no older than 11, but later will be a test on PC and Android.
