Our community is relaunching soon, and we’re giving away an Xbox One to celebrate.
Specifically, GamesBeat Unfiltered is coming back on Jan. 1. Well, kind of. The section of our site that allows you to submit your own stories will now be called GamesBeat Community. Why the name change? Well, we really want to create one of the best, inclusive, and most positive gaming communities out there. We want to give you a place where can you talk about the industry and grow as a writer.
Of course, if you’re looking for a little incentive to jump on board, we’re giving away an Xbox One bundled with Assassin’s Creed: Unity. For a chance to win, you simply have to write at least one story for GamesBeat Community during January. We’ll then randomly pick a winner and send the bundle to them. Please note that for shipping reasons, we can only select a winner from the continental U.S.
But don’t worry! Even if you don’t win a shiny new system, you’ll still get to enjoy new features when GamesBeat Community relaunches, including:
A redesigned and simplified posting interface.
A redesigned Post Manager system.
A unified account for posting stories and commenting on them.
We’re also working to add Adsense support and traffic stats to the community features, so more is still to come.
For those that have written for GamesBeat Unfiltered in the past, thank you for contributions and your patience! For those of you thinking about joining our community for the first time, we look forward to reading your work!
