Twitch has started to move beyond being a location where people can only watch streaming gameplay from their peers. A new partnership with Kabam enables some of the company’s free-to-play games to be playable directly from the Twitch website. There is now a section on the left side of Twitch called “Play Games.” When it’s clicked, you’ll be presented with the option to play Kabam’s games such as The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age, Wartune and The Godfather: Five Families. Choosing to play either of these games will open a new window within the web browser.

A Kabam account is required to play any of the games. You can make new credentials for this purpose, or you can sign in using your Facebook or Google account. The games start very quickly and are not hardware intensive. If you’re using the Twitch mobile applications, you’ll notice Kabam has been integrated there as well. You won’t be able to stream Kabam’s games from your mobile device to the we website. Instead, the “play games” section just links to the Apple App Store where you can download mobile versions of Kabam’s games. An update to the Twitch iOS app is available right now.
