Discord is counting on the power of nostalgia to lure in more people to its widely used chat platform. The company announced that 11 games from the Lucasfilm and Disney archives will be heading to its Nitro Games subscription service over the next few months.
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
- Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- Star Wars: Republic Commando
- The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
- Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Both Knights of the Old Republic games are now available for Nitro Games subscribers. The Discord app (for mobile and desktop) is free, and a huge reason why it’s been able to reach over 250 million users. Nitro Games is an optional upgrade for $10 a month that, in addition to a library of over 80 games, offers perks like a larger upload limit and custom Discord tags.
In addition to the Netflix-style subscription (which competes with the likes of Origin Access and Humble Monthly), Discord also operates its own digital store, which offers developers a 90/10 revenue sharing model, a rate that beats the 88/12 split that the Epic Games Store popularized.
