Raptr Rewards: End of Nations Beta

End of Nations is reborn! Raptr has partnered exclusively with Trion Worlds to give core MOBA gamers the chance to jump into the brand new game before anyone else and give it a test run.

Those ranked Newbie or Amateur in top MOBA games on Raptr can claim exclusive access to the End of Nations Alpha. As a thank you for taking part, all Raptr members who play the End of Nations Alpha will earn a sleek and unique Raptr skin set, usable in Open Beta and onwards.

Have a higher ranking in a MOBA? Raptr will release Alpha keys over the next few weeks for MOBA players of different ranks (from Newbie to Elite), so watch your email and Raptr site notifications for your chance to play!

The new Raptr Desktop App, now with Twitch streaming!

The latest update to the Raptr Desktop App now supports Twitch streaming!

Just about all PC games that work with Raptr’s In-Game Overlay will also let you stream to Twitch without any additional software or setup. Make sure to use a good broadband connection and a relatively powerful computer to get the most out of your streams! This feature is still in beta so additional improvements are on the way!
