Discord Offers Subscription Service For Games

Discord has opened its Discord Game Store for all users. In the download shop are currently more than 70 games to find, ranging from simulations on first-person shooters to role-playing games. With the “Premiere at Discord” campaign, the company intends to regularly win new developers who publish their titles exclusively in the Discord Game Store for a period of 90 days.

Exclusive titles in the store include the top-down action game At Sundown, the real-time strategy game Bad North, the Beat’em Up King of the Hat, the tower defense title Minion Masters and the action RPG Sinner: Sacrifice available for Redemption.

For the launch of Discord Store Discord has also adapted its subscription service Nitro . Nitro subscribers have received a number of benefits such as animated avatars, better image quality, and a file upload limit for $ 4.99 a month. This subscription model will continue to exist in the form of Nitro Classic.

New is a second subscription model for $ 9.99 a month. Nitro subscribers get here in addition to the well-known chat and upload extras and a game subscription. As part of this, they have free access to a total of 60 games from the Discord Store Library. The songs can be downloaded, installed and played by subscription for free. In the selection you can find classics like Limbo, Super Meat Boy, Brütal Legend, Metro: Last Light Redux and the Darksiders series.

According to their own statements, Discord wants to expand the Nitro library by new games at regular intervals, but older titles will be removed from the Nitro selection. Already created cloud scores remain, however. In addition to the curated Game Store, Discord also offers a Universal Library for PC users. If desired, the tool will scan the computer for installed games and summarize them in a library – whether purchased through Steam or another service. Clicking on the game in the Discord Library starts the corresponding launcher.
