Fletch here, esports product manager, and boy, do I have some thrilling news to share. Today, we're excited to announce our partnership with CardBoard.Live that enables millions of viewers worldwide to become a part of the Gods Unchained experience on Twitch! Watch the video below.
CardBoard.Live are no strangers to trading card games, and we feel it's only fitting to partner with them to bring an unrivalled viewing experience to our audience. Whether you're watching your favourite content creator, a community tournament or our future esports events, it's never been easier to be a part of the action.
Broadcasters will now be able to bring the viewer "into the game" via the extension's exciting new features. Viewers can gain more information on everything available to the streaming player, including the player's hand, deck list, voids, the sanctum, god powers, relics and any cards on the board.
With this new level of accessibility, we'll be providing viewers with unique ways to get insights into the strategies their favourite streamers or players may use. Viewers can glance at a player's active decklist and cards in real-time.
But that's not all; we've also teamed up with CardBoard.Live to bring digital ownership even closer to viewers engaging with the stream. See a card played in-game that you'd love to add to your collection, maybe a new synergy you had not thought of? Viewers can now get marketplace links to the cards in-stream and view them on Immutable X, Token Trove or Aqua.
We hope this extension helps bring another level of integration and accessibility for viewers, content creators and event organisers. You can install the extension now via Twitch and add it to your next stream!
Note: Only streamers, content creators, event and tournament organisers need to download the Twitch extension.
Viewers - Encourage your fave streamers to install and use the extension to enhance your viewing experience in-game!
