A while ago Discord rolled out Discord Rich Presence thingie.



Rich Presence allows you to leverage the totally overhauled "Now Playing" section in a Discord user's profile to help people play your game together. Rich game data—including duration, score, current boss or map, and so much more—lives inside Discord. You can spectate a friend's game directly from their profile popout, or party up via beautiful chat embeds with real-time information about open party slots and the party's in-game status. No more exchanging usernames and friend codes, or wondering if there's room for you to join. Rich Presence is a living invitation to play together, or to watch your friends kick butt.

How i see it implemented:

  • Show the planet player is on rn
  • Show the amount of players on server
  • Show any other stats you can think of
  • Let users invite each other directly via Discord - without need to search for each other on steam
  • also lets players spectate their friends playing, can be handy in some specific situations

When the dedicated servers go live, it can be also used for players to party up more easily

Discord docs about how easy it is to integrate and set up (also works with UE out of the box)

Also in-game time can be shown - for example, time since user joins server/loads save or time since user starts the game, depending on what devs find more useful
