How Xsolla Launcher and Gcore CDN make game content delivery more effective

Game developers anticipate this strategic partnership making deploying, distributing and downloading video game content faster, wider, and more efficient than ever before.

With the increasingly fragmented ecosystem of third-party publishing and sales channels, game developers seek new and better ways to connect with players. Launchers make this possible by delivering complete customer data ownership, supporting cross-platform logins, allowing for integrated payments and purchases, and much more.

An important component of any launcher is a CDN — content delivery network — a group of geographically distributed and interconnected servers. They provide cached internet content from a network location closest to a user to speed up delivery and facilitate updates/downloads delivery to numerous servers spread out around the globe — a process that is specifically important to game developers.

Today, a joint partnership between Gcore and Xsolla makes it possible for game developers and publishers worldwide to deliver game content seamlessly via Xsolla Launcher powered by Gcore CDN.
