Discord’s Nitro Is Now a Netflix for PC Games

Popular gaming platform Discord is pumping out multiple updates today, including a major overhaul to Discord's Nitro subscription service. Now, for $9.99 a month, Discord Nitro will offer a library of over 60 games, including hits like INSIDE, FTL and Super Meat Boy.

Right now Discord Nitro is offering mostly indie games, but we're expecting to see more games added to this list as time goes on. Plus, the added $5 from the original Nitro Subscription is well worth the amount of games you'll get access to.

And if you don't want to pay the extra $5, Discord is keeping its original service and dubbing it Nitro Classic. The base service includes a bunch of chat perks like animated avatars, control of your tag number, higher quality screen sharing, custom and animated emojis as well as a larger file upload limit (from 8MB to 50MB).

On top of that, if you were subscribed to Discord Nitro before Wednesday, October 10th, 10:20 PM EDT, you will receive the new Nitro service at no extra cost until January 1st, 2020. If you're subscribed to the yearly plan, then the upgrade will last until 2021. Anyone who was subscribed prior to the aforementioned date will receive an exclusive Early Supporters badge.

Discord is also taking the Discord Store out of exclusivity in Canada and launching it worldwide. For those who don't know, the Discord Store launched as a beta back in August and provided easy access to purchase popular games like Dead Cells, Hollow Knight or Starbound. Now Discord is also hosting its own “First on Discord” titles like Last Year: The Nightmare, Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption and King of the Hat, all of which will debut on the popular gaming chat platform.

To top it all off, Discord is releasing a Universal Library feature, which lets you launch any game you have previously played, despite where the game was purchased, all through the Discord app.

Here's a list of the Nitro Subscription Games as well as games on the Discord Store and the "First on Discord" titles.
