Tencent to face Steam with its WeGame platform

The company China Tencent has announced its intention to launch its juegos platform Tencent Games Platform exclusiva de China en Occidente. The launch in our country will be accompanied by a name change, WeGame.

To give us an idea of ​​whether this platform has the potential to compete with Valve, we must say that Tencent is the largest video game company in the world, controlling 13% of the world market. In addition to being the owner of Riot Games and Supercell, the latter, developers of Clash of Clans, have participation in other companies such as Activision Blizzard, Epic Games, CJ Games or Glu.


WeGame It is a portal with properties similar to one Steamevolution de la ante conocida Tencent Games Platform, con more than 200 million active users only one China. Su intention es hacerse un hueco en el mercado de occidente con a platform that facilitates interaction between users and developers, promising the presence of virtual reality betting among other productions. El servicio apuesta por incluir hasta 100 nuevos titulos de pago, which is especially focused on the west. Otro punto destacado es que la web no disponé de no filter, como los disponibles en Steam (Greenlight; proximamente Direct); garantizando así una llegada massive de titles, cosa que no me atrae especially, ya que se colarán titles of questionable quality and carroña por doquier.

At the moment, little more is known about WeGame. On April 20, a Tencent conference is scheduled to explain more details about this move.
