Evolve represents a real step forward in making streaming accessible to millions of prospective broadcasters. This partnership helps bring sharing your video gaming experience into the mainstream.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
Evolve (https://www.evolvehq.com), a leading social platform for core gamers, and Twitch, the world’s leading video platform for gamers, have announced plans to make available straightforward, high-quality game streaming tools to all members of Evolve.
Twitch, the dominant player in its space, attracts more than 23 million visitors every month to view streamed content of popular games. Members of Evolve log hundreds of thousands of hours of playtime each month across thousands of supported titles, which CEO Adam Sellke says “will bring a diverse base of content perfectly suited to Twitch’s skyrocketing audience.”
“Broadcasting tools gamers currently use are often poorly optimized and suffer from confusing interfaces. Additionally, they lack features to make it easy for friends, guildmates, and clanmates to know when a relevant broadcast has started,” adds Sellke. “Evolve’s dual role as both a desktop utility and social network effectively solves both issues.”
Because Evolve operates independent of specific titles and services, it is uniquely positioned to offer a streamlined, instant-on approach to game broadcasting—with a unified interface that functions the same in every one of Evolve’s more than 2,200 supported games.
"We’re very excited by the opportunity afforded by this partnership,” says Twitch CEO Emmett Shear. “Evolve represents a real step forward in making streaming accessible to millions of prospective broadcasters. This partnership helps bring sharing your video gaming experience into the mainstream.”
Due for release in early 2013, Evolve’s Twitch-powered broadcasting features are in active development and will be made available to members through its beta channel in coming weeks.
