Another streaming platform is entering the fray. A new platform called Binge has been announced, and it describes itself as “the future of gaming entertainment.” Just outside of bats, it is important to emphasize that this Binge is separate from the streaming service called Binge, which is already available in Australia.
This new Binge is specifically focused on games specifically. The platform hosts “premium original series and shows” inspired by video games and creators. Allan Ungar, who directed Nathan Fillion in the Uncharted fan film, is chief content officer for Binge.
“When I directed the movie Uncharted starring Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake, it was designed to be a love letter to the gaming community, but also to prove that there was a place for this kind of adaptation,”
Binge will be officially launched in 2022 and will be available on virtually all connected devices. The company behind it says the goal was to create “high-quality premium entertainment content for gamers,” and an important part of that was to “do it in a way that respects the fans and the games that inspire them.”
Binge is not ready to talk further, but the company says it has already reached agreements with “incredible partners”, including “the world’s most popular content creators, game publishers and studios.” The new original series covers both retro, indie and blockbuster titles. “From cult classics to the biggest hits, Binge provides a premium platform for any story,” reads a line from the press release.
Binge has a feature called Squad Parties that allows users to look together and earn rewards for doing so.
“What sets Binge apart is that we bridge the gap between traditional entertainment games and bring the best of both words together, “said Binge co-founder and chief strategy officer Cody Hackman. With our extensive background and expertise in production, games and development We are fully committed to providing high quality content that respects the games we love. Over the coming months, we will share more information as we set the stage to welcome fans to the ultimate platform for original gaming entertainment. “
