Path of Exile Adds Twitch Streaming

Grinding Gear Games announces Path of Exile is the latest game to jump on the Twitch bandwagon, as the action/RPG now has integrated support for the streaming video service:

Auckland, New Zealand - July 16, 2013 - Grinding Gear Games today announced that Twitch, the world's leading video platform and community for gamers, has been integrated into their online action RPG, Path of Exile. Path of Exile now allows players to stream gameplay from inside the game client, including full support for streaming webcam footage and integrated Twitch channel chat. Twitch integration also enables players to know who on the leaderboards is racing at any given time for real-time spectating.

Leveraging Twitch's new software developer kit, Path of Exile is able to add functionality beyond the live broadcasting of gameplay. When Path of Exile and Twitch accounts are linked, users viewing the Path of Exile website will be able to see little Twitch icons next to player names wherever they appear on the site while streaming and can click on the logo to visit the user's stream. In addition, while a Path of Exile race event is in progress, the leading streamer for that event is shown on the race page. Since all streamers are marked on the leaderboard, players can switch between them and watch them play directly on the race page.
