Details and Conditions

Bethesda's old video policy link now redirects to Xbox's policy after the acquisition by Xbox Game Studios.

From Microsoft's Game Content Usage Rules:

"Except as described here, you can't sell or otherwise earn any compensation from your Item, including through advertisements in the Item.  This means you  can't charge money in exchange for your Item, post it on a site that requires subscription or other fees to view the Item, or post it on a page you use to sell other items or services(even if they have nothing to do with Game Content or Microsoft)."

"You may make your Item available on Youtube or Twitch and participate in programs on those sites that allow you to earn revenue from ads displayed in connection with your Item."

"You may use the Item on a page where you ask for optional donation requests."

See more details by clicking the "source" link below.

What it Means

  • Videos and streams ARE allowed

  • You CAN monetize on YouTube and Twitch with ads and subscriptions

  • You CANNOT sell or charge for access to your content (this would include Twitch "subscriber only" streams)

  • Any licensed IP or music not owned by the publisher are not covered by this policy
