Bethesda Unveils Orion, A Technology That Will Help Improve Game Streaming

As part of Bethesda's E3 press conference, it announced a new technology called Orion. Orion promises to deliver 4K, 60 FPS gameplay without "perceptible latency." Bethesda demonstrated Orion's streaming capabilities by showing someone off-stage playing Doom on an Orion-enabled mobile device, which looked like it was performing well.

Bethesda didn't offer many details on exactly how the technology works, but it will apparently be integrated directly into software and promises to make games that include Orion better on every streaming platform.

Bethesda will be running some free Orion beta tests to those who are signed up for Doom Slayers Club, encouraging players to register tonight in order to participate.
