Ludwig has made his video game debut, and you may play alongside him simply by watching ...

Ludwig has teamed up with Captain.tv, a company that develops free-to-play interactive games that help streamers, to create Nitro Stream Racing, a racing game that allows streamers to compete against viewers in chat.

It has been confirmed on Twitch and YouTube, and according to one of the developers' blogs, it works by having a streamer host a race, which viewers can join later by typing a command in chat. They'll also have access to several characters, cars, and more.

Ludwig's video game debut is even more exciting because he has his own character skin. It's the first time the popular YouTube star has appeared in a game.

Needless to say, he's very excited. In fact, he'll be streaming it on-stream this week, and the lucky ones who make the cut will win prizes.

According to Captain.tv, Ludwig isn't the only streamer to collaborate with the developers. QuarterJade, Northernlion, and at least a hundred others are also involved in some way.

According to the developers, the service will also provide opportunities for streamers to earn money through microtransactions such as characters, cosmetics, emotes, skins, and other.

It sounds like a win-win situation, not only for developers and streamers, but also for fans who get to play against their favorite actors in no-holds-barred races.
