BioWare Vets Launch New Site that Helps Gamers Get Rewarded for Playing Games and Helps Developers Drive Community Engagement
After attracting more than 10,000 gamers from around the world to its closed beta phase, GamrRank.com is live. Created by a team comprised largely of former BioWare staff, GamrRank seeks to help players get rewarded for… well, playing games, and for being part of the global gamer community.
In addition to defining the Ultimate Rank in Games via the titular “GamrRank” (see About GamrRank below), the site gets incredibly meta, turning the act of playing games into a game of its own through Challenges and Medals. Anyone can create a Challenge on GamrRank, challenging other players to upload videos of in-game feats. Medals are meta-achievements, allowing gamers to live the dream of being a game designer by creating achievements that span games – “earn achievement X in game 1 and achievement Y in game 2,” for example.
Each week, GamrRank unleashes new official Medals and Challenges for hot new games, with prizes to be won. More than $2,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs in our current Challenge, and a talented gamer could win $1,000 by uploading a video based on Hitman: Absolution. Who’s up for the Challenge?
Developers and Publishers
Developers and publishers can tap into the platform to drive community engagement, help game discovery, reward players and better understand their audience. For a very low rate (seriously… like $5-10) they can create custom-branded Challenges and Medals, rewarding players with beta keys, free products, swag or anything else they can dream up. Developers and publishers can signup at http://partners.GamrRank.com for early access to our Partners Portal.
