Popular video streaming service Twitch has opened up its broadcasting services to all game developers and launched a new version of its Twitch SDK, offering an expanded set of APIs, as well as broadcasting support for Unity PC games.

Twitch is a San Francisco-based video platform built specifically to help people easily broadcast and watch gameplay. It currently has more than 35 million unique monthly viewers.

With this new open developer program, Twitch says that developers can now grab the online toolkit and integrate the Twitch live broadcasting functionality into their games.

Utilizing Twitch, developers can access data alongside video broadcasts, and potentially share events and statistics with viewers live alongside broadcasts.

There are a whole host of other new features for developers to explore as well, including the ability to share the top community players, showcase DLC as part of broadcasts, and learn which players are worth keeping an eye on and fostering.

The upcoming Company of Heroes 2, due for release later this month from Relic Entertainment, has this new Twitch SDK integrated into it, allowing for post-match highlights and direct game capture.

Those developers interested in the Twitch Developers Program should visit the official website.
