The Stuff We Love

FAQ

As a Player Direct contributor, what can I do?

You can talk about things that are happening in game, like battles or raids, seasonal events, player-run events, interview fellow players, highlight notable members of your game's community, review in-game features and content, write opinion editorial pieces, create art based on our games and characters, and more. You can talk about things out of game, like live events or what was covered during the last official Twitch stream. This is your chance to be highlighted as a published representative and journalistic reporter for your community.

Subject to DBG's Content Creation Policy (below) and DBG's Terms of Service, you can create and edit videos, images, artwork, and articles that include or are based on in-game events, screenshots and game play footage. If approved, you may also livestream the game and have your streams appear in our live feed.

Videos may be monetized through "partner programs" on sites like Twitch and YouTube.*

*Unfortunately due to volume, we cannot respond to direct requests asking if it's ok to use our content. Please point sites like YouTube and Twitch to this page.
