Today, we received great news about TwitchTV and the Xbox One! Starting this Fall, you will be able to stream your gameplay on the Xbox One directly to TwitchTV via Xbox Live Gold membership. This has recently become a highly-demanded feature for console gamers, and if new games gradually start to include spectator modes, these two features could be big news for the tournament scenes.
Today we are proud to announce that Twitch will indeed be on the Xbox One, the all-in-one gaming and entertainment system launching later this year. This integration, available to all Xbox Live Gold members, will allow gamers to broadcast their games directly to Twitch from the Xbox One, as well as view content from fellow streamers on the Twitch network.
“Live broadcasting has continued to grow in popularity, but sharing your console experience has never been this easy,” said Emmett Shear, Twitch CEO. “Xbox Live Gold is enabling the ability to both upload your gameplay directly to Twitch and to stream Twitch content on Xbox One. The impact of this level of console integration will be a true game changer.”
We’ll have more to share with you about this integration in the weeks and months to come. Until then, keep your eyes glued to our E3 coverage where we’re working together with our friends at Microsoft to bring you an exclusive line-up of upcoming Xbox titles, including Super TIME Force, Charlie Murder, and Ascend: Hand of Kul.
