The Discord Store Beta is now available for everybody! The online shop allows Discord users to browse through and buy games such as Hollow Knight, Metro, Super Meat Boy, De Blob, Darksiders, Dead Age, and many more.
Many Discord exclusives are also available, such as Hide and Seek, Bad North, King of the Hat, and Minion Masters, with more to come. Users with a $9.99 Nitro Subscription also have access to a wide library of free games, such as Metro, Super Meat Boy, and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.
With many games available and a cheap subscription option, along with Discord’s popular social features, this could be the best Steam alternative right now. Here’s more on the new Discord Store Beta.
How To Use Discord Store Beta
The Discord Store is built right into the Discord app. All you need to do is open the app, click on ‘Home’ in the top left corner, and ‘Store’ is right there in the sidebar. You can also view the Discord store online here.
Once you open the store, you’ll be able to browse through a huge library of games. This includes free-to-play games, paid games, and free games with a Nitro subscription. You can download the games and launch them right from your Discord app.
You can browse through different categories and see videos, descriptions, and reviews, much like on Steam.
The Discord store also makes it easy to start games with friends with their simple chat and voice chat features.
Discord Nitro Subscription
Users with a Discord Nitro subscription will have full access to a range of free games. This includes titles such as Super Meat Boy, Metro, Inside, Shadow Tactics, RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, and more.
You’ll also get perks such as animated avatars, 1080p screen sharing, and a range of custom emojis.
This largely follows the NetFlix model, giving you access to a wide library of content for a small subscription cost. Discord Nitro is currently $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year.
All you need to do to sign up is go to your User Settings (via the cog in the bottom left) and go to Discord Nitro. You can also view the Discord Nitro subscription options online.
With their chat features already popular amongst gamers, this could make Discord the best gaming app out there.
