Video company partners with Red 5 Studios to bring real-time streaming to free-to-play PC MMO shooter.
Twitch today announced a partnership with Red 5 Studios that will bring real-time streaming support to free-to-play massively multiplayer online PC shooter Firefall. According to Twitch, Firefall will be the first game to feature integrated Twitch chat functionality.
Twitch vice president of marketing Matthew DiPietro said in a statement that it won't be long before video streaming services like Twitch become commonplace. "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 a team-based, science-fiction MMO shooter set in a future Earth setting. The game was created by World of Warcraft and Tribes developers and is currently in beta. No firm release date has yet been announced.
Earlier this month, Twitch announced a $9/month premium subscription membership called Twitch Turbo. Subscribers get ad-free broadcasts, an exclusive Turbo badge, a custom emoticon set, expanded chat colors, and priority customer support.
