Discord’s noise filtration beta wants to silence noisy keyboards

Discord’s store to allow self-publishing with a better revenue split next year

Seemingly in response to Epic's grand announcement of their own games store and subsequent PR barrage at The Game Awards, Discord have announced they're going to be offering a better cut on games distribution too. As of next year, the recently-launched Discord game store will be open for self-publishing, with the company taking 10% (less than Valve's 30% and Epic's 12%, more than Itch's split-how-you-want),…

Discord launches its built-in store and Nitro games subscription

Another day, another place to buy and launch your games from, although Discord does has the advantage of already being on a huge number of PCs. The gaming-centric multi-chat service just launched its integrated game store, albeit in beta. A few temporary exclusives aside (Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption and Bad North seem noteworthy), it seems largely what you'd expect from a modern games storefront. Still,…

Steam launches new Friends and Discordian chat

Valve have dragged the Steam client's chatting out of the noughties and into the early tensies with the launch of its new chat update, which looks to borrow more than a few ideas from smash-hit chat client Discord. Steamers can now create group chats on the fly, see GIFs and YouTube videos and Soundcloud tunes and so on embedded in chats, add extra voice and…
