Streaming platform Twitch, recently acquired by Amazon in a deal worth $970 million, has announced that Gameloft's Heroes of Order & Chaos will be the first mobile MOBA to feature its integration.
This is the second time Twitch has partnered with Gameloft, with both companies having previously joined forces to bring the Twitch broadcasting functionality to Asphalt 8: Airborne, which was the first mobile game to run the streaming video service.
Gameloft is now attempting to expand the number of iPhone and iPad models that can use the Twitch broadcasting feature.
Baudouin Corman, VP of Publishing Americas, believes that the deal represents good business for both parties.
"Heroes of Order & Chaos is the benchmark MOBA game on mobile. It’s only natural that it would be the first to integrate with Twitch,” said Corman.
“It’s been a pleasure working with the talented team at Twitch to extend compatibility of this amazing technology to more games and devices.”
Twitch's director of business development, Brooke Van Dusen, is delighted with the partnership, emphasising that the firm is constantly on the look-out for mobile games that fit its vision.
“With the omnipresence of mobile gaming, we are constantly looking for great games aligned with the interests of the Twitch community,” explained Van Dusen.
“Since MOBAs are one of the hottest genres on our platform, integrating Twitch broadcasting into Heroes of Order & Chaos is the ideal title to further tap into what our users are playing.”
Heroes of Order & Chaos' new Twitch content will be available in updates released on August 28.
