Three years ago, we set out to bring people together around games. Now, we’re bringing the games to you. To us, this feels like that final boss health meter hitting zero; that 151st pokemon being caught; that ding at the end of that ruthless vanilla level 60 grind. WE ARE EXCITED!
It’s almost ready & you’ve got questions.
I want access! Why don’t I have access?
To start, we’re slowly rolling out to 50,000~ random players in Canada. We plan to get this right and need to do a whole lot of testing before releasing this out into the wild.
I now want to play a game!
Good thing we made it super simple! You’ll find the Store tab wedged comfortably in the Home directory.
Here you’ll see a curated list of games for your buying pleasure! Our store has a hands-on personal approach to give you the best information about each game. Each game has a video preview on hover and a custom description so you know what the game is about so you can browse easily.
OOOOooooooo pretty, scroll down for more pretty
Clicking on a game will bring you to that games’ store page with full details. You’ll see a note from us, a description of the game from the developers, and a list of features along with the latest news!
Be sure to check that your toaster can meet the system requirements. You’ll find System Requirements at the bottom of the page.
Paying for a Game
Once a game has peaked your interest, click Buy and you’ll be brought to a page where you can select your payment method.
Note: We currently accept only Credit Card & PayPal. Keep in mind, paying with PayPal balance currently does not work, there will have to be a Credit Card linked in order for PayPal to work. If you’d like to see more options added, go ahead and upvote the request here!
For Credit Card enter in Payment Information & Billing Address.
When selecting PayPal a web browser will automatically open to complete the purchase.
Installing your Game
Time to install! Navigate to the Library tab (it’s squashed next to the Store tab.)
From here go ahead and click Install.
You’ll be prompted to select what drive you’d like to install on. The disk space required will also be displayed here.
When installing a game the progress will be displayed at the top of the Library. The Install button will also change to say Downloading.
Please note, if you’re seeing Verifying Install, hang in there. The game is still downloading but isn’t going to display a percentage or ETA.
This is what you’ll see when the download is complete! Note the Downloading button turns to Play! WEEE GO PLAY!
What if I don’t like a game I’ve purchased?
Nothing to worry about! You’ll be able to request a refund. Our policy requires that there are less than 2 hours of accumulated game play and that the game has been purchased in the last 14 days. Go ahead and reach out to the support team to request a refund!
What happens to the games I’ve purchased if I lose my account?
Unfortunately, if you lose access to your Discord account you will also lose the games in your library. To ensure your account has all the recommended safeguards, be sure to check out this guide.
Can I gift a game?
Look who’s an awesome friend, you’re good people! At the moment, you can not gift a game to another user. Be sure to upvote the request to gift games if it’s a feature you’d like to see.
Lastly, be sure to give this blog post a read! It outlines our vision for adding games to Discord.
