Studio Wildcard, the creator of ARK: Survival Evolved, today revealed “Survival of the Fittest”, a brand new PVP deathmatch mode for ARK! To get the blood flowing, Twitch and Studio Wildcard are teaming up to bring you a 35-team “Survival of the Fittest” tournament live from Twitch HQ! Join Studio Wildcard’s Kayd Hendricks and Twitch’s Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez as they break down this new mode, tournament carnage, and interviews with the players.
What’s at stake? The winning tribe will receive a $20,000 Grand Prize, as well extra goodies from Logitech and Gunnar Optiks.
Hey, did we tell you that viewers can participate during the event?! While the teams battle it out, you can vote on Evolution Events–powerful world-altering sequences–that will occur every 30 minutes (Freak Weather, Dino Assault, Supply Drop).
So make sure to tune into on August 1, 2015, at 12:00pm PT, on SurviveTheARK. The action promises to be dino-mite!
Twitch is offering to fly out one special fan (and their friend) to San Francisco with an all-access pass (that means VIP party access, meet and greets with top broadcasters, tour of the event with Twitch staff, & more!) for TwitchCon, but we want to learn more about you before we pick somebody. Here’s the challenge:
Make a 30-90 second highlight on your Twitch channel explaining why you love Twitch and/or why Twitch should send you to TwitchCon. Then, tweet it to us @Twitch using the hashtags #TwitchCon and #PurpleTicketContest.
Before you run off and make another Avatar, we’ve got a few rules and regulations. Here are the major guidelines:
- This must be your video, created and filmed by you for this contest! No re-using cool movie clips, stunt footage or anything.
- Submissions must not exceed 90 seconds in length.
- Submissions must be cut as a Twitch highlight.
- The title of the video must include “TwitchCon Purple Ticket”
- The video can include other people, but only the person who submits the video will have the chance to win.
- The video should be in English and the submitter must be over the age of 18 and reside in the United States
- Your video must adhere to our Rules of Conduct and Terms of Service.
We’ll select the best, brightest, most exciting and heartfelt videos and send one lucky broadcaster and a friend to San Francisco to attend TwitchCon from September 25th-26th! Twitch will supply travel, accommodations and an all-access pass to enjoy the ultimate TwitchCon experience.
Choice Chamber is finally upon us! The first game designed from the ground-up to be played live on Twitch is officially launching TODAY. And it’s going to be cray.
As Choice Chamber is broadcast on your channel, anyone watching can use the chat to participate in the game. As the player navigates one dangerous chamber after the next, you can choose to be helpful, or you can choose to be evil. You can band together to help the broadcaster reach higher levels (fun!), or you can be the instrument of their demise (even more fun?). Or let anarchy reign, if that’s what you’re into.
The Evolution Championship Series is the largest and longest-running fighting game tournament series on Earth. Evo brings together the world’s best in a dazzling exhibition of skill and competitive spirit with over $300,000 in prize money on the line. It’s an atmosphere unlike any other for players and fans alike.
WHEN: Friday, July 17th – Sunday, July 19th
WHERE: EVO Event Page

Thank you one and all for making E3 2015 amazing. Thank you game publishers for making the games we love. Thank you viewers for tuning in. And thank you partners for taking part in this E3 like never before. See below for a handy infographic we drew up to highlight all the goodness.
We’ll see you all next year!
Once again, Twitch has partnered with Humble Bundle to bring you the E3 2015 Digital Ticket, packed to the gills with the best of the best in digital swag. Proceeds support the ESA Foundation (ESAF). We’re proud to further ESAF’s mission to improve the lives of children through video games.
It’s that time again. E3 is right around the corner, and we’ve got it all on Twitch. Check out all the press conferences you know and love, including the all-new PC Gaming Show (exclusive on Twitch).
Attention Twitch Broadcasters!
New this year, we’re encouraging you to “co-stream” all of the E3 content from twitch.tv/twitch. We’ve got all the content, now all it needs is your commentary and opinions. Make E3 your own and personalize it for your community.
*Note – When the time comes, please set your game to “E3 2015″ and only re-stream the official twitch.tv/twitch channel. Restreaming channels other than /twitch will be subject to DMCA as per usual.
My name is Bazza and for the past 3 years I have been streaming a weekly show on Twitch. That show is called Video Game Championship Wrestling or VGCW for short.
Don’t miss out on Bazza’s last VGCW show taking place June 9th at 11PM UK/6PM ET at Twitch.TV/bazza87. And don’t fret wrestling fans, VGCW will continue on under new management!
VGCW takes both famous and obscure video game characters from various different games and throws them all into a wrestling ring together as the A.I. takes control of them while they fight for our amusement. Just like “real” wrestling, the characters have the opportunity to fight over various championship belts and other titles. There are also multiple storylines and feuds going on between the characters which brings a huge amount of personality and life to the VGCW universe. Because of the nature of this show, VGCW is able to have completely off the wall storylines which wouldn’t be possible in a real wrestling promotion, such as stories involving stopping an evil antagonist from taking over the world or even a story involving time travel.
