Ever since Digital Outburst became my main outlet for coverage I’ve been incredibly fortunate to continue working with developers, publishers and PR companies. It’s thanks to them recognising the quality of the content, and the website’s small but loyal audience. While I’m incredibly proud of the progress DO has made since the start of the year, one aspect we haven’t been able to crack is getting onto review-aggregate websites who require large audience numbers before considering adding you to their systems.

All hope isn’t lost, though, as we’ve got some exciting news to share – Digital Outburst is a launch partner for OpenCritic’s brand new Contributor program. You may be asking what that actually means, so here’s the answer straight from the fine folks at OpenCritic:

I’ve been listed as a Critic on their site since last year thanks to my work over on Dealspwn, but having Digital Outburst accepted as a Contributor is a fantastic opportunity for the website. We’re ever so grateful that OpenCritic has approved us as one of their launch partners for the program, as it means our reviews will be included on aggregate scores as long as readers add us to their preferred critics. So, if you are a frequent visitor to OpenCritic be sure to add us to your filters. Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Sign up or Login using a Steam, Facebook, Twitch or Gmail account.


Step 2: Click on the Options cog in the top right corner.


Step 3: Scroll down to the Contributor section of the Trusted Source page, find Digital Outburst and tick the box next to it.


And you’re done!

Thanks for continuing to support Digital Outburst, and be sure to head over to OpenCritic for all your review-aggregate-scoring needs!
