Discord’s online games store launched in October with a curated selection of indie games in addition to some exclusives. It’s now further incentivizing it for developers to publish games on its online store. The company has announced that it will offer developers 90 percent revenue share, keeping only 10 percent for itself.
Discord is a popular platform these days for gamers to get together to chat about their favorite games. It is also where guilds can organize raids and communicate with each other, but Discord is hoping to be more than that. Recently the company has announced that their in-app store is now open to all.
Discord today announced that it’s launching its own game store. It will begin selling games online through its own platform. Discord is launching the game store in beta today and it will be open to a limited number of its users. It will specifically open the beta to 50,000 users from Canada first before expanding it to users from other markets.
If you’ve ever been in a group call, you know that sometimes it can get quite crazy with everyone trying to speak over each other, and then you have that one person who doesn’t use a headset and the sound from their speakers echoes into the microphone and it just ends up being total chaos.
Over the years there have been plenty of chat apps designed for gaming, but in more recent times it’s starting to look like Discord could become the staple of chat and communications for gamers. This is evidenced in a recent development where according to an announcement on Major Nelson’s website, Xbox gamers can soon link their Discord accounts to their Xbox accounts.
Over the years we’ve seen gamers go from one communications app to the other, and right now it seems like Discord is one of the more popular options out there today where it is at the point where most gamers use it for communications. However that isn’t enough as Discord wants to become the official chat app for gamers.
For those unfamiliar, Discord is one of the more popular applications right now when it comes to communication in games. This is because the platform allows users to create multiple channels which can come in handy for gaming sessions with friends, raid groups, guild chats, and more, and now it looks like Discord has gotten a bit more “entertaining”.
Over the years we’ve seen various apps used for communication in games. Skype was of course one of the more popular options at the start due to its voice calling capabilities, but later we saw gamers turn to the likes of TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, and so on, although in more recent times it looks like Discord is gaining a fair bit of steam.
Many of you guys might be familiar with the workplace chat app Slack, which is used by companies to communicate with each other. However when it comes to gaming, Discord can be thought of as the Slack but for gaming, and recently the company has announced that they will be testing out a couple of new features.
If you’re a gamer, there are various voice chat services and instant messenger services that you can use that are catered more towards gamers, and Discord is one of them that has risen in popularity in recent times.
