Twitch begins mobile streaming with Asphalt 8: Airborne for iOS
Less than two weeks after announcing a mobile SDK, Twitch has now been integrated into a mobile game. Gameloft's Asphalt 8: Airborne for iOS will be the first game to feature Twitch's live streaming functionality.
The racing game was released last year as a free-to-play title. However, today's update will allow gamers to broadcast game footage using a wi-fi connection. Twitch will also allow gamers to use the front-facing camera of their iDevice to video chat while playing. In addition, players can also archive their streams and share them on the web.
"Twitch has quickly found a home on consoles, so by partnering with Gameloft to launch the first streaming-enabled mobile game brings us one step closer to being everywhere that gamers are," Twitch VP of marketing Matthew DiPietro said.
Twitch is currently "optimized" for iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini with Retina Displays.
