BioWare Vets Launch New Site that Helps Gamers Get Rewarded for Playing Games and Helps Developers Drive Community Engagement

After attracting more than 10,000 gamers from around the world to its closed beta phase, GamrRank.com is live. Created by a team comprised largely of former BioWare staff, GamrRank seeks to help players get rewarded for… well, playing games, and for being part of the global gamer community.

In addition to defining the Ultimate Rank in Games via the titular “GamrRank” (see About GamrRank below), the site gets incredibly meta, turning the act of playing games into a game of its own through Challenges and Medals. Anyone can create a Challenge on GamrRank, challenging other players to upload videos of in-game feats. Medals are meta-achievements, allowing gamers to live the dream of being a game designer by creating achievements that span games – “earn achievement X in game 1 and achievement Y in game 2,” for example.

Each week, GamrRank unleashes new official Medals and Challenges for hot new games, with prizes to be won. More than $2,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs in our current Challenge, and a talented gamer could win $1,000 by uploading a video based on Hitman: Absolution. Who’s up for the Challenge?

Developers and Publishers
Developers and publishers can tap into the platform to drive community engagement, help game discovery, reward players and better understand their audience. For a very low rate (seriously… like $5-10) they can create custom-branded Challenges and Medals, rewarding players with beta keys, free products, swag or anything else they can dream up. Developers and publishers can signup at http://partners.GamrRank.com for early access to our Partners Portal.

About GamrRank
Gaming credibility comes from not only what you say, but what you play and what people think of your activity. Developed by a small and passionate team with more than 50 combined years of experience in the video game industry, GamrRank is the ultimate rank in gaming, as it reflects what you play with your standing in the gaming community.

At the heart of the site is the GamrRank, which combines players’ in-game activity across a multitude of platforms with their social media activity to form one handy rank. It’s like when Grimlock, Heavy Load, Hightower and Wedge combine to form Landfill (you may only get that reference if you’re over the age of 30). It’s not just about playing games – it’s also about talking to other gamers, uploading and interacting with YouTube videos and more. Visit http://gamrrank.com to get started.
