After making its bones in the VoIP and instant messaging scene for gamers, Discord is now preparing to take its service to the next level by selling games through its own store. This beta won't have any First on Discord titles, but we'll be showing off some soon!

The Discord game store will be available for free to everyone.

The company also announced a "First on Discord" program where they'll be working with indie developers to help produce their games, in return for timed exclusivity on their platform. According to the company's official blog, they're launching a store where players can purchase games and boot them up straight from the app launcher, similar to what Steam and GOG are now offering. Variety says the universal library will allow users to launch any game on their computer via Discord-it sounds similar to how Steam boots up other launchers and games. Game in this library include titles such as Saints Row: The Third, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, and Metro: Last Light Redux.

We have a good case and cause! "We've managed to place before the court forms that show the (results) figures were erased". The party must prove that any irregularities were grave enough to change the outcome of the vote.

As the store expands, Discord outlines that they will "rely on our community and our team to make the store feel super personal and focused on games that we genuinely think you'll enjoy".

"For many people like us, you grew up during a time when there were a relatively small amount of games being released", the company explains about the new service, which costs $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year. As of today, it has entered a closed beta for 50,000 Canadian Discord users, though they have to be subscribers of Discord Nitro in order to qualify.

The initial lineup of games sold through their client include: Dead Cells, Hollow Knight, Into the Breach, Frostpunk, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and The Banner Saga 3. It was confirmed via email by a representative that "all games [offered on the storefront] will be curated by Discord".

Garcia has but one top 10 in his last 11 global starts, that coming at the French Open in July, where he tied for eighth. It was just a reality that his status as one of the greatest golfers ensured a hoopla of distractions wherever he went.

Discord's store will be lead "more by friendships and playing together" rather "than what is now available in the ecosystem".

To be very clear, First on Discord games are temporarily exclusive. Resmini commented on the decision behind adding this convenient feature. Fantastic games that we missed. "With 150 million registered users that's a lot of building friendships while talking about and playing games together".
