Discord Launched a Game Store
9 August, 2018
News

The initial lineup includes Dead Cells, Frostpunk, Hollow Knight, The Banner Saga 3 and many other indie titles. What do you think is going to happen to Steam?

Discord and Steam are apparently not big friends anymore. A few weeks ago Steam launched its own chat system. This week Discord launched the beta of its own store, which is going to sell a lot of video games. So far this product is limited to a small slice of its user base: 50,000 users from Canada.

Discord explains, that this will be a more “curated” platform, offering a smaller number of games (for now). This will definitely give a better visibility to the developers. So far you can purchase the following games through Discord:

  • 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
  • Starbound

Discord will also be getting temporary exclusive deals, which will be available on the platform for the first 9- days or so. The company is also enriching the feature list of Discord Nitro. Now for $5 per month, you’ll get access to a bunch of cool games, including Saints Row: The Third, Metro: Last Light Redux, Darksiders, De Blob, Tormentor X, Kingdom: New Lands, System Shock Enhanced Edition, Super Meat Boy.

Discord is making itself a launcher, so you’ll be able to launch games directly from the launcher.

Why is this important? Well, we still have to wait and see, but it does look like you’ll be able to sell your games on Discord, and if you’ve got a really good game it never hurts to show it to 150 million Discord users. Just saying. What do you think is going to happen? Will it eat Steam? Will Steam eat Discord? 

Here’s the official blog post about the new store from Discord team.
