Established in 2003 and commonly seen across the competitive scenes of Battlefield 2, Call of Duty 4 and regular gamers alike - Xfire has now closed its chat client and social platform in order to solely focus on the Xfire tournament platform.

With so much nostalgia attached, Xfire is described by some as Steam's influence into in-game chat, allowing users to converse in and out of game, log their gaming hours and share screenshots or videos seamlessly with other members.

Boasting a 12 year stint spanning 24 million users, Xfire has kindly allowed all members to download their full album of screenshots and videos simply by entering their username. Be warned, there is a long queue at hand.
