The world of PC gaming is evolving at an amazing rate. I mean seriously, just ten years ago our computers were straining to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and now we are modding the massive Skyrim universe to include Star Wars lightsabers and dragons that look and sound like Macho Man Randy Savage! Ok, so these advancements may not help us find a solution to the world’s energy crisis anytime soon, but they are impressive technical achievements nonetheless….not to mention totally awesome.
The competitive landscape of First Person Shooters has also turned from niche genre to a full-blown entertainment powerhouse, with no end in sight. We know that PC’s are the future, with computers only becoming faster, more convenient and more powerful. It truly is a beautiful thing!
So, what does this all mean for Xfire and the millions within the Xfire community? It signifies that we are prepared to put all our chips on the table and develop a full-service competitive gaming platform that truly takes advantage of the huge potential that PC gaming has going for it. Xfire 2.0 is a huge step in the evolution of competitive gaming, and along with our new Instant Action and Direct Challenge format, Battleground, you have everything you need to become a pro-level gamer.
But we are not stopping at that. We want you to view Xfire as a one-stop-shop for all your gaming needs. Not only will we provide one of the most advanced gaming formats around, we are also going to be bringing you news and commentary on all the big stories and hidden gems within the larger PC gaming community. Breaking news, interesting features, interviews with luminaries of the industry and community discussion are just some of the things you should expect from the new Xfire.
This is where I come in. Your humble editorial writer will be here with you everyday, as an information gatekeeper of sorts. I will bring you the most current and interesting stories and provide a bit of commentary. But since this is a community, I need your help. Voicing your opinions is encouraged and interesting discussions are essential to making this a great experience for all of us.
So feel free to drop me a line, call me out (not too harshly, please), or introduce me to areas of PC gaming that you feel should be on the community’s radar. Just like most Xfire users, I am simply a lifelong gamer who truly loves the industry and cannot think of a place I would rather be. I know many of you feel the same, so lets make Xfire the best online gaming community around!
