Games (aka Games)

Discord is built around the idea of bringing people together through games. As part of that goal, we want to offer ways for game developers to work closely with us and make awesome stuff. Rich Presence is a great way to more deeply integrate with Discord! It lets you:
  • Show more detailed status information on your players' profiles
  • Allow your players to create invites in Discord for others to play with them
  • Launch into game sessions, parties, and groups directly from Discord
  • Launch into your game's spectate mode directly from Discord
  • Allow your players to ask to join their friends' games
Rich Presence is free, open-sourced, and self-serve, so check out the How To guide and get started!Those looking to test out the waters before jumping into the deep end with a technical integration should check out our Verified Servers program. Being a game developer and owning and operating your game's Discord server makes you eligible for special perks like:
  • A vanity url—no more
  • Custom invite splash art
  • Access to VIP voice server regions
  • A verified check mark to show that you're legit
