We began rolling out Discord Nitro games beta to more users and we received some great feedback. As always, community feedback is super important to us, so thank you to everyone who sent some words in our direction. Our ears are open and not too waxy.
Based on this feedback, we’ve decided to make some adjustments and want to share them with you ahead of our global beta launch.
First, we’ll share the specific details about how Nitro is changing. Then, we’ll share how we’re giving love back to our early supporters.
Discord Nitro and Nitro Classic
As we said in our store announcement blog, Discord Nitro will now include a growing library of critically acclaimed games that we think you and your friends should play. To coincide with this value add, we will be increasing the price of Discord Nitro from $4.99/mo to $9.99/mo.
As of today, there’s 42 curated games at a total value of $732.58. We are going to add games to the library at a regular cadence. Games may sometimes leave the Nitro selection (due to our contracts with the developers/publishers expiring without renewal). With our cloud saves, your save data will remain even if games rotate out of our library.
We also want an option for those looking to support us but don’t want games. Enter, Nitro Classic. At $4.99/mo, get access to a slew of chat perks like animated avatars, ability to choose your tag (the #0000 next to your username), higher quality screen share, custom emoji anywhere, animated emoji, larger file upload limit (50mb from 8mb), and a badge to show how long you’ve been supporting us. The classic Nitro load-out.
Classic indeed. For a whole 24 hours it was actually called Discord Lightro, but it wasn’t meant to be. The person who came up with Lightro is crying right now. They’re also the one writing this blog, so this is actually just a confession of my pain /weeps.
Is that you, Grandfather?
Moving on, we have a couple updates for those of you who have generously supported us by subscribing to Nitro before games. As a thank you for your love, anybody subscribed to Nitro before Wednesday, October 10th, 7:20:00 PM PDT will receive access to our growing library of Nitro games at no extra cost for one year (until January 1st, 2020)or until you cancel your subscription.
Moreover, yearly subscribers will get access to the same growing library of Nitro games at no extra cost for two years (until January 1st, 2021) oruntil they cancel their subscription.
To be super ultra double clear, you must remain subscribed to receive these perks. Cancelling or changing your plan will result in losing access to the games library.
Finally, anybody who EVER subscribed to Nitro prior to the date above will receive an exclusive Early Supporters badge for their profile. We will never give out this badge again.
We can’t say it enough — thank you so much for supporting us thus far. It means so much to us that you’ve believed in our product and company and were willing to give us your hard earned cash. We really appreciate it.
Thank you again for your feedback as we work through this beta and figure out the best ways for you to discover and play amazing games with your friends. Hit us up on Twitter with feedback.
