Digital Distributor Impulse has announced new features designed to enable developers to add “free to play” type features to their PC games.
The beta releases of its upcoming game developer platform SDK, Impulse Reactor, scheduled in March, will include an in-game store experience, feature unlocking, and downloadable content management all in a developer portal.
“The increasing growth of the free to play model along with premium downloadable content has created a lot of interest in the game development community for tools that make it easy to integrate these capabilities into their games,” said Brad Wardell, CEO of Impulse, Inc.
Impulse Reactor has been in beta for the past year to select development partners. It enables game developers to add DRM, multiplayer match-making, community features, and DLC support.
