The easiest way for people to broadcast gaming experiences just got easier. Forge announced its new livestreaming feature with Twitch and YouTube, enabling gamers to share their gameplay without any additional hardware or software. The Forge app is available to download for free at Forge’s website.
Forge launched its public beta in February and proved to be extremely popular. Basically, it is a simplified way for gamers to connect and share gameplay.
“Our mission at Forge is to make sharing moments from games as simple as possible,” said Jared Kim, CEO and Founder at Forge. “Many gamers that want to get started with livestreaming are often confused by the many technical hurdles involved in setup. Forge livestreaming transforms that process--which typically requires following pages of tutorials--into a single keystroke.”
The app automatically records the player’s session upon launching any title and runs in the background. Users can broadcast their gameplay live to Twitch or YouTube with just the press of a button.
Players can also clip and share short gaming videos – like a Vine video - to the Forge network and other popular platforms like Twitter without having to exit the game.
Some of the key features of Forge include:
- Broadcast your gameplay session live without additional hardware
- System and network auto-detection to optimize your game session for livestreaming
- Livestream to Twitch and YouTube, as well as your Forge profile
- Connect to Twitter to let your followers know when you are live
Forge is a great option for up-and-coming broadcasters, and is a great option for livestreaming veterans. Regardless of broadcasting experience, Forge is a great, free tool available now for Windows PC.
