What a week it’s been! After a crazy BlackBerry® Jam Americas 2012 in San Jose showing and the jaw-dropping milestone of reaching 200 million users, we are thrilled to announce the most exciting features yet for BlackBerry 10, all in one convenient package. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Games app.
We’re putting a comprehensive social gaming hub powered by Scoreloop at your users’ fingertips, but we’re delivering much more than an application to house your games. We’ve taken the tools of game discovery and played with the very laws of nature itself to create a streamlined, elegant way for gamers and games to meet.
Here’s a little sample of what’s in store within this dedicated gaming HQ:
- Instant Community - Finding friends used to be hard. Now, through the magic of the Scoreloop and BBM™, your players can effortlessly find and connect with other BlackBerry 10 users right out of the box.
- Game Discovery - No wish list? No problem! Users can view their friends’ favorite and recently played games, providing your game ever more chances to be noticed.
- Be The News - With dynamic gaming timelines, bragging and game promotion are simultaneous…and automatic!
- There Can Only Be One - Light the fire of competition within your users. Players can compare their skill levels and wage epic challenges.
For those of who you are already on board, we’re delighted to share a quick-start guide for getting a title integrated with the Games app in record time. For those of you still on the fence: what are you waiting for? Come take advantage of our industry-leading, cross-platform toolkit and grow with us through the next generation of social gaming!
