The Livestreaming Loco platform is home to some of the largest live streaming companies in South Asia, and the content creators on the platform are looking to diversify their content. While titles like GTA 5, Free Fire, and Valorant continue to dominate viewership, there are other titles that are growing in popularity. Here are five rising games that are moving up the ranks in Loco that you should keep an eye on if you love watching diverse content.
Fall Guys currently has three million views on Loco and the latest free update of the game has definitely contributed to the success of the game. Unlike other popular games like Valorant and Free Fire, Fall Guys was a paid game that put a barrier to entry for players who didn’t want to invest in the game. But since the game is free to play, Fall Guys has managed to reach 50 million players in just two weeks.
The game speeds up in Loco and a lot of streamers try it out. Some of the game’s allure comes from Takeshi Castle, a popular Japanese game show that many kids of the 80s and 90s grew up watching in India. It was basically one of the first royal battles, but in real life. Fall Guys offers a similar experience in the form of a video game.
While football (the association football) may not share the same amount of popularity as cricket in India, there is no dearth of hardcore fans for the sport. It is estimated that over 3.5 billion out of the 7.96 billion people in the world are soccer fans and it seems that there are very few soccer fans in Loco either. India also qualified for the FIFA Nations Cup which helped increase the popularity of the title in the recent past.
Currently, a lot of content creators are broadcasting FIFA Ultimate Team matches, tournaments, and more. With Electronic Arts (EA) and FIFA severing ties with each other for future FIFA games, it is unknown if fans will lean towards the FIFA special or if they will continue to play EA’s offerings.
Ludo is a strategy board game that needs no introduction. Lots of kids grew up playing Pachisi/Ludo in India. The game was created in India in the 6th century and is mentioned in the epic “Mahabharata”. Ludo King is one of the most popular game that brings the popular board game into digital format and many players in Loco love to watch the game.
Currently, Ludo has gained more than 2.4 million views on Loco and the digital version of the game has increased further over time due to COVID-19 which has prevented friends from getting together and playing face to face. It’s great to see a game that’s been around for centuries being revived in digital form, and still enjoyed by gamers who grew up around modern video games.
Apex Legends currently has more than 760 thousand viewers and its popularity may grow. Unlike a lot of other popular games that are seeing a decline in player numbers over time, Apex Legends was the exception to the rule. Each season, the game seems to break the peak concurrent player count, and as Season 14 approaches, history may repeat once again.
Apex Legends is unique in the battle royale genre because no other game can replicate its advanced action. While all other competitors play it safe and offer a tried and tested FPS experience, Apex Legends allows you to maneuver crazy action and pull flashy players if you are willing to invest time in the game. The game is gaining popularity on Loco and the latest release of Apex Legends Mobile may bring more viewers into this category over time.
Love it or hate it, Fortnite continues to dominate the battle royale arena. The game has collaborated with everything under the sun from Marvel to DC to pop star Ariana Grande. The game receives frequent content updates and Epic Games has managed to hit a gold mine with Fortnite. On Loco, the game has more than 860,000 viewers and is gaining popularity since the inception of the platform.
The game is available on PC, console, Switch and mobile, and offers full cross-play support, making it available to players who have friends on other platforms. Colorful visuals and ever-evolving gameplay have attracted a lot of attention since the game’s release and there are very few streamers on Loco willing to give the game a chance and stream it regularly.
There are other notable games that are gaining momentum on Loco as well. Games like Minecraft and In Us are growing in popularity, and the platform has its fair share of AAA game players streaming the latest games from the biggest studios.
