Forge a Fellowship – Build an Empire
Three platforms that are extremely popular in the gaming community are Discord, Steam, and Twitch.tv. We’ll talk about these platforms and why all gamers should be using them.
As a gamer just starting out, there are platforms that can enhance your play time and make you a better player with the right connections. Even if you’ve been casually gaming for a while, the platforms we’re going to discuss here can give you a much richer gamer experience.
Discord has been described as ‘Skype for gamers’. The platform allows you to communicate and coordinate via private servers that let you text and voice-chat with other people. You can use it both with desktop and mobile platforms, and enjoy the features of a chat room, message board, and VoIP chatting system all in one place. The great thing about Discord is that it won’t squeeze the juice out of the valuable resources on your phone or PC.
In recent years, the popularity of Discord has gone through the roof, with over 90 million registered users and counting. The platform is great to hang out online with a small group of friends or to communicate with a whole server of players. You can run Discord in your browser or use the app. Get more customization options with the app.
You can create a new Discord server yourself and issue invitation codes right away, or use an invitation code to join a pre-existing server. Creating a server just needs a valid server name. Nothing needs to be installed on your computer or mobile devices.
Steam can be used for playing, discussing and creating games. Users can do all kinds of things; earn achievements, read reviews, get custom recommendations and much more. Game hubs are available and can be used to join discussions and upload content. Steam can help you to be the first to know about new updates. Steam also allows users to stream gameplay live.
Many online games establish official partnerships so that games can be installed, updated and monitored through Steam. Don’t ignore Steam. Many new and exciting MMORPG games are expanding on Steam. Membership can be extremely beneficial for staying up-to-date and networking with other players.
Origin is a digital distribution program that is similar to Steam. Developed by Electronic Arts, purchase and play video games on new generation online gaming. Their software is available for personal computer and mobile platforms.
Origin contains social features such as profile management, networking with friends with chat and direct game joining along with an in-game overlay, streaming via TwitchTV.
Twitch.tv is a specialty media powerhouse exclusively created on the planet for gamers. It is growing to be a vital part of Amazon. There are 2 million unique streamers every month and more than 17 thousand of these users earn money through the Twitch Partner program.
In contrast to YouTube which is part of Google, Twitch.tv can be simulcast for playing a game and watching while streaming a variety of digital broadcasts. Forget about Facebook – live views are declining.
Great or overnight sensations without solid credentials really are making a living from Twitch.tv and YouTube. Different “personality/charisma” marketing skills are required.
The primary purpose of Twitch is to bring video games, pop culture, and conversation together. Chat is built into every stream, so you aren’t just watching whatever is going on Twitch – you become a part of the show. It began as a video game streaming service, but has since expanded and can offer numerous live streams to users.
Discord, Steam, Origin and Twitch.tv can give gamers both new and veteran an enhanced gaming experience. Hang out online with friends, communicate with various players on different games, earn achievements, join discussions, and watch live streams to your heart’s content.
These three platforms will help you to feel more connected to the gaming community than ever and really open your eyes to what you can achieve.
