Red 5 studios, the people behind the MMO Firefall, have recently partnered up with Twitch.tv to provide one-click streaming capabilities, without the use of extra software.
“Red 5 Studios is one of the most innovative independent studios in the video game industry, and we’re proud to be counted among their partners,” said Matthew DiPietro, the vice president of marketing for Twitch. “Video broadcasting will soon be a standard, expected piece of the gaming experience with innovative companies like Red 5 making it possible by pioneering the way it’s built into games.”
Firefall is another addition to this ongoing instillation of Twitch.tv into video games, joining the likes of Sony Online Entertainment’s Planetside 2 and Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
“We’re very excited to have Twitch broadcasting integrated into Firefall,” Said Red 5 Studios vice president of development James Macauley. “By allowing players to stream from directly within the game, we’re expanding its online footprint and creating a whole new discovery mechanism. This, along with our revolutionary e-sports toolkit, provides our community with the technology they need to produce professional broadcasts of Firefall’s elite competitive gameplay.”
Personally, I’m extremely excited to see more games implement this Twitch.tv feature. I thought it was brilliant, the first time that I saw it during the Planetside 2 beta, and I can’t wait to see which games implement it in the future.
