Twitch is rolling out an alternative for the popular events, such as E3, that have been cancelled amid the COVID-19 pandemic by getting involved with the Summer Game Fest with exclusive livestreams, including a new channel, reserved exclusively for the event, according to Polygon’s Michael McWhertor.

Twitch has partnered with Riot Games, CD Projekt Red, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Blizzard Entertainment, 2K, and the International Game Developers Association on a number of special events.

Twitch is also planning “console announcements”, and with Sony and Microsoft planning to reveal their game lineups for the upcoming Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X this summer, those presentations will likely be streamed live on Twitch streams, in addition to other platforms.

Twitch posted a new blog post and unveiled the following plans for the Summer Game Fest:

“TWITCH RIVALS: VALORANT LAUNCH SHOWDOWN

Published

on

We have rolled out a new update for the Gamactica mobile app for both Android and Apple. Below are the patch notes:

  • Fixed Notifications issues: we resolved the issue where not all notifications were being pushed.
  • Notifications Menu: many users reported that they would prefer the menu tab for Notifications to be more prominent on the Menu, so we moved it to a higher placing for easier navigation.
  • Members Menu item: Officially renamed ‘Members’ to ‘Gamacticans’ in the menu tab
  • Gamactica Global: re-developed the Gamactica Global section, and created a LIVE tab present on the Menu. This will direct you to the Gamactica Global section where you can see streamers from around the world who are streaming live on Twitch, and find live channels based on language, location.
