Welcome to November, where we now have another awesome addition to our MixPlay Spotlight program, where we showcase a new MixPlay interactive experience, only playable on Mixer, each and every month! As we’ve seen over the last two months of MixPlay Spotlight, MixPlay functionality continues to provide groundbreaking interactive streaming with real-time influence for Mixer’s content creators and their communities, while also providing game developers with additional tools to create fresh and unique gameplay experiences that keep audiences engaged with their content.
As some of you may know, Mixer has a great partnership with Hi-Rez Studios, who have developed popular games such as SMITE and Paladins. As part of this partnership, starting this past spring, Mixer implemented interactive stats dashboards for SMITE esports broadcasts using MixPlay custom controls. These dashboards allow the audience to view additional details and stats happening live during the match for an enhanced viewing experience, exclusively on Mixer.
Well today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing our MixPlay Rewards feature (previously seen on Forza Horizon 4) to official Hi-Rez streams, starting with the SMITE and Paladins World Championships from Hi-Rez Expo (HRX) this weekend! With MixPlay Rewards, you can earn in-game items by linking your Mixer and Hi-Rez accounts and watching official Hi-Rez broadcasts. The more you watch, the more content you unlock! While watching a qualifying stream, you will see the progress you are making towards earning your next in-game item at the top of the screen. Check out the list of in-game rewards you can earn this weekend for watching both SMITE and Paladins during HRX at the links provided!
Tune-in and enjoy HRX this weekend!
