After signing up, users get a 60-day free trial to explore the portal, and then it's $10 per month.
Paidia members will get access to a library of games, and they can host and play in tournaments, regardless of skill level, the company says. The portal also includes original content like articles, podcasts, audiobooks and on-demand classes, so gamers can explore and expand their interests. Members can get access to new technology, merchandise and gear from Razer and Xbox Game Pass as well.
