Game broadcasts have become quite commonplace on video game consoles and PC, and soon gamers will be able to do the same for select mobile games.

Twitch, in an announcement prior to the Game Developers Conference this week, has announced that it will include its service in Gameloft’s racing extravaganza Asphalt 8: Airborne. The service will be provided through a downloadable update for the game on the App Store, and will allow players to broadcast live gameplay through the Internet. In addition, their face and voice can also be included in the broadcast, through a separate camera and microphone.

“Live broadcasting represents one of the most important shifts in the way people play games,” said Matthew DiPietro, Twitch’s head of marketing.

The company has certainly thrived over the past few months with its broadcasting services, including full representation on Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 consoles. This new move should introduce the company to a whole new audience of enthusiastic players.
