Can you hear that? That’s the sound of the hype train moving at top speed. Because PAX Prime 2015 from Seattle, WA, is nearly upon us. Whether you’re attending the show or watching from home, Twitch has you covered with all the PAX goodness you can handle with the help of our event sponsors HP Omen, Daybreak Game Company, Super Evil MegaCorp, Corsair, and Turtle Beach.
For those of you getting in on the fun in Seattle, we’ll have Super Evil MegaCorp’s Vainglory and Daybreak Game’s H1Z1 playable at the booth, Partner Meet & Greets (with brand spanking new Kappa Cards), a Twitch Town Hall, the insanity of PJSaltan of Stream II, and enough swag to fill a really big swag bag (including a new addition to the Twitch Pinny Pin collection, more on that after the break).
Watching from home? No problem. You can watch all the content from the Twitch booth and the two main panel rooms (Main and Hydra) on the official PAX Event Page. The full schedule is below the fold, so you can start planning your weekend now.
Here’s a rundown of a few highlights:
Are you ready for more indie gaming goodness? Of course you are.
In this month’s Indie Spotlight, we’re giving you an in-depth look at Space Ape’s Rival Kingdoms: Age of Ruin. It’s a new take on the mobile real-time strategy genre with plenty of action, intriguing backstory, and collaborative guild-based gameplay to go around.
tldr; Get it here. Oh, and we did a cool video, too. Read on!
And now let’s commence with the hyperbole: Version 3.0 of the Twitch app for iOS is – in one word – AMAZING! We completely overhauled the user interface, made it best buds with iOS 7, and added new features such as offline channel search, profile display, and a better chat experience. Most important, we’ve redesigned the app to focus on making it easier than ever to watch and chat about your favorite games with your favorite broadcasters and bffs.
We’ve updated the look of your Twitch Settings pages to better match the rest of the site. You can check out this makeover at http://twitch.tv/settings.
As we made some changes in organization, we’ve provided a brief outline of what you can do under each Settings tab.
Over the past year, we’ve been hard at work on massive improvements to the video system. Our goal is to improve the video system’s stability and scalability so that we can offer the best quality video to as many users on as many platforms as possible, all while we continue to experience explosive growth.
