And while it's not launching a service of its own, Bethesda will publicly test Orion by allowing gamers to stream the company's 2016 blockbuster FPS, DOOM, on iOS devices - without installing the game locally; Android and PC streaming will follow soon after.
Bethesda described Orion as, 'a patented collection of software technologies that will optimize game engines for superior performance in a streaming environment'. And it looked like it was working, but this was a stage presentation of streaming software, so the only way we'll know whether Orion is up to snuff is to test it in the wild.
Orion will reportedly be able to work with Google Stadia and be be used with any game engine.

Bethesda's Orion is a game- and platform-agnostic tech that is said to reduce latency by as much as 20 percent per frame and decrease bandwidth requirements by up to 40 percent.
The first example of Orion in action is provided by Doom 2016, which is one of Stadia's launch games. "Orion delivers on those goals and will vastly improve streaming video games". Streaming to a mobile phone clamped to a controller mount, it looked pretty damn smooth - although without a direct feed to examine in more detail it's hard to say exactly what was going on with regards to quality.
Bethesda also announced during the press conference that players can sign up to try the technology for free through Doom's slayerclub.com website.
