“Minecraft has struck a very powerful chord with the Twitch community,”-“Its constantly escalating popularity illustrates that people love to watch video games outside of the headline grabbing eSports titles. Expect a watershed moment for both players and spectators once the ability to easily broadcast gameplay directly to Twitch goes live.”
Otherf games that have partnered with Titch for official streaming support include PlanetSide 2, Trackmania 2, and Path of Exile. Also the new next generation Microsoft Xbox One and PlayStation 4 console will also feature feature built-in Twitch support.
The new Twitch streaming support will be rolling out to PC and Mac versions of the Minecraft game and will enable users to “easily” broadcast gameplay directly to their personal Twitch channel.
