Discord launches storefront, now has 150m users

Discord launches storefront, now has 150m users

Discord, the online service used by millions of gamers for voice, text, and video chat, is making its way into the game selling business. We'll know for sure when the Discord store beta launches soon.

The Discord game store will be available for free to everyone.

There will also be a "First on Discord" list of titles, comprised of indie games that Discord will work to bring to fruition. According to the company's official blog, they're launching a store where players can purchase games and boot them up straight from the app launcher, similar to what Steam and GOG are now offering. Those who are selected will gain access to the new Nitro Games library, along with having the ability to buy games from the new storefront. Unlike Steam, which appears to be a veritable free-for-all for publishers and users alike, Discord aims to handpick its games. The first games available for purchase will be Hollow Knight, Metro Last Light Redux, Saints Row The Third, Starbound, and Super Meat Boy. The subscribers of its monthly service will get to play a variety of games that are curated by the platform.

He added: "The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it and he is first choice". The England World Cup hero only returned to training on Monday but is still in line to start.

The $4.99 per month Nitro membership will now include access to a library of older games at no extra cost. Thing is, this new idea is a massive one and comes in the form of three key new features: The store itself, the Indie program, and the launcher. This will also serve as a discovery service that will promote games with a boutique feel according to the announcement. Discord is launching the game store in beta today and it will be open to a limited number of its users. Discord isn't looking to offer every single game out there, and will instead focus on curating a storefront of specific recommendations. It was confirmed via email by a representative that "all games [offered on the storefront] will be curated by Discord".

Discord Nitro is getting an upgrade. Fantastic games that we missed. The First on Discord titles can be sold on other platforms once the exclusivity period is up. "With 150 million registered users that's a lot of building friendships while talking about and playing games together".

Discord plans to expand to more countries and currencies before the full launch of the Discord Store later this year, the company told Variety.
