Discord Targets Steam With New Online Game Store

Discord Targets Steam With New Online Game Store

"Alongside the upgraded Nitro, we'll be launching a curated game store experience similar to one of those cozy neighborhood book shops with recommendations about the hottest and newest games from us to you". As for the store, rather than have every game available on it, Discord wants to make it a carefully curated shop with specific titles and recommendations based on player interest.

Discord has launched a beta for what's being called the Discord Store, a place where users can purchase games directly. It costs $4.99/month or $49.99 a year, but you don't have to subscribe to it in order to use the storefront. "We remember devouring Nintendo Power, PC Gamer, and other various gaming mags to get a sense of the titles coming out". Bad North, the release of which we discussed in detail here, should be among these titles.

"Today, the problem has flipped on its head". Fantastic games that we missed. The store will also feature a "First on Discord" section, which will have indie games the company helped bring to life.

However, the new store will be different from Steam's, which has become a platform where nearly anyone can sell a game.

That's by design, as Discord chief marketing officer Eros Resmini tells Variety. "As the store grows, we'll rely on our community and our team to make the store feel super personal and focused on games that we genuinely think you'll enjoy". Everyone in the beta can buy Dead Cells, Frostpunk, Omensight, Into the Breach, SpellForce 3, The Banner Saga 3, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, Hollow Knight, Moonlighter, This is the Police 2, and Starbound.

Claude Puel, the visiting manager, said: "It was a shame to concede this goal at the beginning of the game". "We should start the Premier League with a win and we did", he said.

Moreover, the new service will allow users to launch games directly from Discord. The voice chat app has made itself a mainstay on most gaming PCs, and now the company plans to expand the feature set to include a store and a subscription library of games.

In addition to this, the firm is introducing "First on Discord" titles - indie games that are available on the platform for - usually - 90 days before they come to other platforms.

"Through Discord's lifetime, we've always been thinking about fun, additive, and cool ways we could build a business that's exciting and respects our players", Discord's announcement concludes.

New York City's famous Strand Book Store is both very big and cozy.
