With the beta of the Discord Store up and running, users are now able to purchase, download, and launch games through what was previously just a chat service. But with that ability now comes the question of DRM, and for the moment, Discord is aiming for a developer-led solution.
PC Gamer reports that, at the moment, Discord's DRM is something developers can opt into, requiring Discord be launched and online before a game purchased from its store will launch.
This is true even for some single-player-only or Discord-exclusive games, such as Sinner: Sacrifice.
That said, a Discord representative has told PC Gamer that the company is working on an offline mode that will not require Discord to be launched for a game to run, though clarity was not provided as to what this will mean for developers who desire the option for their titles.
