May 21, 2024

Gcore, the global edge AI, cloud, network, and security solutions provider, has announced its partnership with video game commerce company Xsolla. The alliance will enable Xsolla to provide game developers and publishers with new global distribution channels catering to gamers worldwide, regardless of their locations. With Gcore’s 180 global points of presence (PoPs), players will benefit from reduced time-to-play and smoother, more efficient game downloads.

Xsolla Launcher is a powerful tool for game development companies of all sizes to widen distribution and easily build communities. It streamlines game installation, enhances player communication, and boosts monetization, allowing developers to concentrate on creativity and business logic. By leveraging Gcore’s robust CDN, Xsolla Launcher ensures seamless, speedy game downloads for all players by efficiently fetching and caching game components and initiating rapid downloads upon player request.

“At Xsolla, we’re committed to elevating the gaming experience for developers and players globally,” said David Stelzer, President of Xsolla. “Our collaboration with Gcore’s cutting-edge CDN technology significantly narrows the gap between the game and its players by delivering assets at unparalleled speed. This integration into our new Xsolla Launcher sets the bar for high-performance service and empowers our customers to focus on what they do best: create captivating games.”

Xsolla engineers chose Gcore CDN for its global network of 180+ edge servers, ensuring uninterrupted delivery of game assets worldwide. With a network capacity exceeding 110 Tbps and connectivity to 14,000 peering partners, Gcore averts congestion and disruptions, even during major releases. Operating under strict security measures and meticulous server maintenance, Gcore guarantees exceptional availability. Additionally, Gcore’s CDN integration with its proprietary DNS services further minimizes the risk of service interruptions or outages.

“We’re thrilled to be part of Xsolla’s pioneering solution, driving the gaming industry forward,” commented Ilya Matveev, Business Development Director at Gcore. “Xsolla Launcher brings flexibility to the industry, allowing companies to implement a D2C approach – a way to monetize their existing game fan base without the burden of platform fees. Relying on the power of Gcore’s edge infrastructure, Xsolla Launcher is revolutionizing game distribution by eliminating market barriers, reducing development costs, and fostering creativity.”
