Overwolf Launches New CurseForge App Ahead of WoW Shadowlands Expansion
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Overwolf, the all-in-one platform that enables creators to build, distribute, and monetize in-game apps and mods, today announced the launch of the beta version of the new CurseForge app. The app will replace the mod tab in the Twitch client and help gamers and mod authors to manage mods and addons for supported games, beginning with World of Warcraft. Overwolf announced in June its plans to acquire CurseForge from Twitch to empower mod authors to not only create better experiences for gamers, but also make a living from their passion. The new dedicated app, built on the Overwolf framework, is launching ahead of WoW Shadowlands expansion to allow gamers to download the latest addons prior to the highly anticipated release.

Designed as a dedicated app for PC and Mac, the new CurseForge app will initially offer similar functionality to the “mods” section inside the Twitch client which includes discovering, downloading, and managing mods and addons. Since the announcement of the impending acquisition of CurseForge, Overwolf has collaborated with top in-game creators and gaming communities to identify how to improve CurseForge. The community’s feedback and most requested features were then used to lay out CurseForge’s development roadmap, available here. Improvements including sidebar navigation between games and better search functionality are already introduced in the launch version, with additional features coming during the next few months.

“We’re building our roadmap by listening to community suggestions on which features the players and mod authors would like to see in the new home for CurseForge. Essentially, we are giving the community the keys to shape the future of CurseForge,” said Uri Marchand, Overwolf CEO and Co-Founder. “Overwolf is focused on empowering mod authors with tools and services to build, share and monetize their amazing gaming creations with gamers. As part of our mission to put in-game creators first, we are fully committed to paying CurseForge mod authors 50% more by 2022, compared to what they’re making today.”

“CurseForge has always been the place where players could get the most up to date version of Mythic Dungeon Tools (MDT) and countless other great addons. Overwolf has reached out to the addon community to ask for feedback and ideas for potential new features to ensure that the development of the CurseForge platform benefits everyone including addon authors, but also the players. A lot of changes have been made based on feedback and suggestions to improve the overall experience of the platform, and I am really excited to see what’s in store for CurseForge in the coming months,” said Nnoggie, creator of Mythic Dungeon Tools, a leading World of Warcraft addons with over 10,000,000 downloads.

Support for Minecraft and additional games are also scheduled to arrive on November 17, 2020. Beginning November 30, gamers will no longer be able to use the Twitch client for mod management. All exploration, updating, and downloading of mods and addons will be done through the new CurseForge app and website.

Fortuna Zakłady Bukmacherskie has won the Best Bookmaker title at 2020 edition of Legalni Bukmacherzy’s Polish Bookmakers Awards.

The Polish arm of Czech gambling group Fortuna Entertainment Group took home the Best Offer and Responsible Bookmaker titles too and claimed a joint Best Marketing prize with forBET.

Also, Fortuna employee Igor Kośliński was honoured with the Best Affiliate Manager Award as the bookmaker swept five awards out of eight different categories.

A total of 12 categories were included at this year’s Awards, with the nominees and winners decided by a group of top experts within the Polish betting and gaming industry. Meanwhile, the winner of the Customers Choice Award was voted by the players as legalnibukmacherzy.pl.

Adam Bieliński, CEO of iGamingNuts – the company behind Legalni Bukmacherzy, said: “The previous year was very specific. All of the assumptions concerning acquisition and marketing strategies had to be changed due to the cancelation of major sports events and suspension of games in top leagues.

“The whole industry approached the subject in a creative way – the bookmakers extended their offers, introduced new marketing activities, and most importantly, they did not abstain from improving their products.”
