More video games are taking to social media to advertise than ever before. While many games have official Twitter and Facebook accounts, some have also made an impact on Instagram, too.
But let’s not forget about Vine. Although its short, six-second, looping video format might appear constraining, it’s becoming an ideal place for companies to advertise upcoming games and reach millions of viewers. Here’s a countdown of the ten most popular game companies and brands you’ll find on Vine today.
Splatoon continues to get a lot of love on its official Vine channel, as shown below.
League of Legends draws in millions of players globally, and the game’s official Vine channel sees plenty of game highlights.
The developers behind the Call of Duty: Black Ops games keep a large audience with its daily antics and Black Ops III teases.
Another Call of Duty developer, which created the Modern Warfare saga, has its fair share of Vine popularity, including eSports tournament coverage.
6. DOTA 2
Still one of the most popular MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) games out there, DOTA 2 still draws a strong crowd on Vine with its cryptic, humorous videos.
