Razer will pay you virtual currency for playing Dota 2, League of Legends, and Overwatch using the Cortex
Virtual currency which can be used to procure virtual goods, earned only by playing specific games, well, why not?
If you’re fond of spending most of your gaming time playing today’s popular competitive gaming titles, then you might want to consider installing Razer’s Cortex software on your PC or gaming notebook, that is if you’re keen on earning virtual currency while playing.
Yup, that’s the newest program that Razer is running, in addition to their recently announced digital retail service, called “Paid to Play”. Being part of the program is simple, all you have to do is sign-up for a Razer account, install Razer Cortex on your PC or notebook, and launch and play video games to periodically earn zSilvers.
Wait up, what is Cortex?
Well in case you haven’t tried or heard it yet, Cortex is Razer’s performance boosting software that also acts as a game launcher, and as well as for recording and broadcasting gameplay. In addition to that, you can also purchase your games through the Cortex platform as it is integrated with other digital distribution platforms such as Steam and Origin.
Is there any catch? Taking a look at the Paid-to-Play mini-FAQ, it seems like the only thing that you really have to do is to install and launch your games using the Cortex in order to earn virtual currency, your earnings, which will be in the form of zSilver, can then be used to acquire Razer goodies or to get discounts for their higher tier products. Note that the Paid to Play program is only limited to 5 games at the moment, with only competitive gaming titles being listed such as Dota 2, League of Legends, Overwatch, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Paladins.
