Bethesda says its Orion technology improves game streaming

Bethesda's Orion streaming tech at E3

So to be clear, Orion isn't Bethesda's own game streaming service.

In between your Deathloops and your Doom Eternal announcements this morning, Bethesda announced something called Orion.

Announced during Bethesda's E3 presentation, Orion is a new piece of software that works at the game development level to improve streaming quality. The game engine-level software solution is meant to make streaming games accessible to more people, in more areas, at a higher quality. The streaming tech is being developed by Id Software's engineering team and is "game- and platform-agnostic", the press release stated, adding later on that it works with any streaming provider too.

Since it's not a hardware solution, Orion can be used with any streaming platform, whether that's Stadia, or xCloud, or otherwise.

"[Orion is] our name for a group of patented technologies that optimise game engines for performance in a cloud environment", Bethesda's director of publishing James Altman proclaimed on stage.

DOOM (2016) was shown running on a mobile device at maximum detail without any latency.

We already know that Google's Stadia requires a 25Mbps connection to work as advertised, so it's safe to assume that rivals will make similar demands of your broadband and mobile networks.

Cloud gaming is everywhere at E3.

We'll be able to try Doom streaming ourselves, though.
