Minecraft adds Twitch streaming integration for easier broadcasting

Minecraft developer Mojang is partnering with Twitch to bring built-in broadcasting to the game, the two companies announced today, making it easier for players to stream their games to Twitch "at the click of a button."

Twitch integration for the Windows PC and Mac versions of Minecraft is expected to go live "soon," the companies announced at MineCon, the Minecraft convention being held in Orlando, Fla. this weekend.

Minecraft has sold nearly 13 million copies on PC since launching in 2009.

Twitch has previously partnered with developers to bring its livestreaming service to games like Path of Exile and Trackmania 2, as well as Electronic Arts' Origin client. The company is also working with Sony and Microsoft to bring its service to next-generation consoles.
