MADRID, 29 Jun. (Portaltic/EP) –

Chinese giant Tencent is currently preparing to launch a new video game streaming platform to be known as Trovo and which aims to compete with similar services such as Amazon’s Twitch.

The Asian conglomerate, owner among others of the predominant messaging application in China, WeChat, has been working on this platform since last March which is currently being tested, although it is already accessible, as stated in the Web from service.

The platform will include video games owned by Tencent, including those developed by Riot Games as League of Legends, and others like Fortnite, PUBG, and Arena of Valor. However, they will also be added third-party video games like Grand Theft Auto and Destiny 2, as reported Bloomberg.

Tencent’s platform, originally called Madcat and later Trovo Live, presents a Twitch-like performance and appearance, with which it aspires to compete, although at the moment the initial tests barely have dozens of simultaneous spectators in their best broadcasts, according to the aforementioned media.

Tencent is preparing one agreement program with up to 500 ‘streamers’ in the video game sector which will launch in July to start providing content to Trovo. The Chinese conglomerate will distribute $ 30 million over the next 18 months among its Top 500 streamers according to the results. Unlike other platforms, Trovo does not require exclusivity.
