Public can affect gameplay in Twitch streams Rise of the Tomb Raider




The Twitch audience of Xbox One streams of Rise of the Tomb Raider may affect the gameplay of the streamer. In the special Expedition Mode viewers can vote for Expedition cards, five minutes influence the gameplay in different ways.

In a new post Twitch announces some of the Expedition cards. Thus, there is talk of a time quake card, which when an enemy to a headshot dies a field creates around that enemy which time slows down. Other examples have one life to live, which allows the streamer to start a level over again if he or she dies and ex fuego, where Lara is on fire. In total, there are 64 cards that come along in 186 different pairs. The cards make the game alternately harder, easier or simply amusing.

Viewers can vote by saying in chat “# 1” and “# 2”. This may, in any Twitch-interface. Between the cards is at least one minute to inadequate gameplay. Streamers who want to try the mode should use the xbox one Twitch app to stream their session and turn on the option Broadcast Interactions. If a viewer Xbox One Twitch app used to watch the stream of another, he himself can earn awards such as extra missions, challenges and specific achievements. Twitch has a FAQ set up for the function.
