After months of anticipation, Google will finally reveal its new gaming project today.
The firm is hosting a presentation at the Game Developers Conference today, where it’s expected to announce a new game-streaming service to rival PlayStation and Xbox.
The game-streaming service, which is codenamed ‘Yeti’ has been rumoured for months.
Reports indicate that players will have unlimited access to Google ’s library of games for a fixed monthly fee.

And to make things even more exciting, Google is also rumoured to be launching a physical console and controller alongside the service.
Whether the console will be large like a PlayStation or Xbox, or small like a Google Chromecast, remains unclear.
Thankfully, reports suggest that users won’t need to buy the console to access Google’s game streaming service.

Stream has already revealed the underlying technology behind Google’s service, showing that users will be able to access it via a PC.
Rumours suggest that Google has also been working with several video game studios to port existing games onto its service for internal testing.
