Facebook is aiming to work even closer with its Live content creators with the launch of Facebook Gaming.

The gaming creator pilot program hopes to bring the platform’s content creators closer to their audiences than ever before, allowing for 1080p/60fps game streaming.

Facebook also hopes to enable monetisation that will allow their creators to “make a living” whilst streaming their games, whilst building “more meaningful and more engaged communities on Facebook than anywhere else”.

“There’s a lot of work to be done, but we’re committed to building the fundamental architecture that gaming creators need to be successful, starting with foundational elements like enabling all creators in the program to livestream in 1080p/60fps,” the company said in a press release. “Most of all, with each new feature we add for gaming video, we’re committed to building it alongside our creators hand-in-hand.”
