Discord to Start Selling Video Games

Discord launches app store with major games, indies and exclusives

The company takes 30 percent of sales from games that end up in the store, matching what Valve's massive online game store Steam takes from developers.

Discord's gaming store seems like the future of its business.

There will also be a "First on Discord" list of titles, comprised of indie games that Discord will work to bring to fruition. Rather than the firehose approach that digital stores like Steam and the Apple App Store take, Discord intends to recommend and sell only "the hottest and newest games".

Canadian subscribers of the Discord Nitro program will be the first in the world to be granted access to the ability to buy games directly from Discord.

EPL: Mourinho hints at problem with Manchester United board over transfers
UNITED have decided they will NOT be signing Toby Alderweireld , Harry Maguire and Ivan Perisic on deadline day. Pogba was surprisingly named as a starter by Jose Mourinho , having only returned to training last week.

Discord today has announced that it will soon double as a games distribution platform, with THQ and Deep Silver being the first publishers to sign up to support. The initial lineup includes games like Metro: Last Light Redux, Saints Row: The Third, GoNNER, and Super Meat Boy. Discord says that the games offered on the beta service will be title specifically curated by its employees. The Discord Nitro subscription service will cost $4.99 per month or $49.99 annually. If users elect to, Discord can scan their computer for games and then make it possible to launch any of them through Discord, even if they require another launch. This will also serve as a discovery service that will promote games with a boutique feel according to the announcement.

The retail store will initially sell the following games: "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". It was confirmed via email by a representative that "all games [offered on the storefront] will be curated by Discord".

Simply called the "Store", Discord's marketplace will be accessible by visiting the app's home page and selecting the appropriate menu option. Eventually, this will roll out worldwide alongside the store, which will be accessible by regular Discord users and Nitro users alike. Eros Resmini (Discord CMO) explains to The Verge. "With 150 million registered users that's a lot of building friendships while talking about and playing games together".
