EA Cloud Gaming Trial

A post on Medium Announces plans for a Technical Trial of Project Atlas, EA's cloud gaming service. According to The Verge this testing will commence tonight. We have no reason to doubt them, though we don't see where they say that. Whenever it begins, you need go to the EA website to sign up to Join EA Community Playtesting. Here's word on what they're hoping to accomplish:
Cloud gaming also has the potential to open even more doors around social interactions in games. As part of the trial, we’re testing the technical functionality of cross play that will allow players to play the games they love with others no matter where, or on what device, they have chosen to play — a major step toward cloud gaming finally uniting platforms in play. It will also allow for players to be able to save their progression on one platform and have that reflect in another. In fact during this trial, players in the cloud gaming trial can engage with the live PC environment on Origin. Players will also be able to test out their cross progression when they log in to PC after the conclusion of the trial. This is a very tangible connection between what is possible now and the future we aim to create.

Above all, our pursuit of cloud gaming is rooted in our games and our players. We’ve said all along that we want to be where our players are. We fully believe in more choices for our players, and connecting them to a world of play across more platforms and geographies. Just as subscriptions can be an incredibly strong proposition for players to access great content with minimal friction, when combined with cloud streaming we can make it even more compelling to jump into new games and connect with new communities. We want to make sure that our games are able to perform beautifully and seamlessly in any situation and on any platform.

Can't wait till EA makes this "feature" mandatory.

Is this what the Bioware and Maxis teams have been working on?

Everyone is required to log into Anthem and go to Fort Tarsis, where each game has its own "launch room" you can start the game from.

Who said Anthem isn't good for something?

Ummmm...what? Why was this announced out of nowhere and on Medium of all places? Does EA not have its own website now?

Who visits the EA website?

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

They probably don't want the average doofus involved with this, treating it like a free demo for whatever game they end up playing.

EA has a long history of getting it wrong. We know it works in the Golden high towers of EA games with your $250,000 suits sitting around slobbering on each other. But here in the real world Cloud = Lag. Sorryy for the truth telling but someone had to do it. EA SUX
