After a long wait, Discord’s store is finally here and ready to give Steam a run for its money. Discord launched the beta version of its store worldwide today after announcing this news back in August. It’s nice for gamers to have a second option when it comes buying their games and also great to see Discord branching out like this.
We checked out the prices of some games that the Discord store had to offer. Here’s how they stack up compared to previous pricing points:
Help Madeline survive her inner demons on her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain, in this super-tight platformer from the creators of TowerFall. Brave hundreds of hand-crafted challenges, uncover devious secrets, and piece together the mystery of the mountain.
Frostpunk is the first society survival game. As the ruler of the last city on Earth, it is your duty to manage both its citizens and its infrastructure. What decisions will you make to ensure your society’s survival? What will you do when pushed to breaking point? Who will you become in the process?
Into the Breach
Control powerful mechs from the future to defeat an alien threat. Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game.
Dead Cells is a rogue-lite, metroidvania inspired, action-platformer. You’ll explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle… assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers in 2D souls-lite combat. No checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat.
Descend into the depths of an alien underwater world filled with wonder and peril. Craft equipment, pilot submarines and out-smart wildlife to explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, cave systems, and more – all while trying to survive.
As you can see, some of the games are equal in price on Steam vs Discord. At least, for now. Discord may very well change that to compete with Steam and get players to come over from there.
Free Games With Nitro
If you don’t want to buy games individually, you can also opt-in to Discord’s Nitro subscriptions. The Nitro Classic model, which only has chat perks, is still available for the price of $4.99/month or $49.99/year. However, if you prefer the pricier option — $9.99/month, $99.99/year (with two months free) — you get a whole slew of games. This includes some pretty good titles, such as:
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
Super Meat Boy
RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack
By opting into the Nitro service, you are getting a great deal and saving a ton on some of these games compared to buying them all individually. Discord is really off to a fantastic start, and it’s surely just a matter of time before we see other big titles on the new service. Don’t forget you can also launch these games directly from Discord itself, making it easier to game and chat.
The Discord Store service just began today, but stay tuned for future coverage on sales. You can also check out some of our previous coverage here.
