Fortnite Streamers Get Exclusive In-Stream 'ESPN Top 10'-Style Instant Replays with New Mobcrush ReplayEngine

Sep 26, 2019

Mobcrush, a provider of tools for game streamers and esports teams, kicked off the open beta period for ReplayEngine, a major new feature of its popular livestream platform, with live, broadcast-quality Action Replays generated automatically for popular games, with real-time Picture-in-Picture (“PiP”) playback exclusively for Fortnite for a limited time. The ReplayEngine will be showcased at Mobcrush’s Action Replay Party during TwitchCon, which is open to all TwitchCon attendees.

Using machine vision-driven artificial intelligence, the Mobcrush ReplayEngine automatically identifies and edits highlights for presentation as “Action Replays” during the livestream (or after the fact) to the streamers’s entire fan base across all leading social media platforms including Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. The PiP playback of Action Replays — exclusive to Fortnite for the next two weeks — is customizable: streamers can choose to have them positioned in various locations on the screen. Streamers can also utilize the Playlist feature to queue up as many as ten replays as highlight reels. 

During the just-completed 30-day closed beta, more than 50,000 Fortnite Action Replays were generated by hundreds of streamers for playback during and after their livestreams. Initially, automatic IDing of highlights will be limited to Fortnite, PUBG, Apex Legends and Rocket League – support for other games will be added in the coming months, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep planned for October.

Mobcrush expects to extend its Go Live Get Paid livestream sponsorship platform to include Action Replays by early 2020, where creators will be able to generate revenues from views of each Action Replay, in addition to their full livestreams.
