If you love service games like Genshin Impact, Warzone, and Destiny, this might be the job you’re looking for.

Do you want to write for a website that has a red logo made up of numbers and letters? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We, VG247, are looking for a new staff writer.

Before you get excited and fire off an email without due thought and consideration, please note that this role will have a focus on Games as a Service titles, or GAAS to give them their even more catchy abbreviated name. Games like Genshin Impact, Call of Duty: Warzone, Minecraft, Destiny, and the like.

Watch on YouTube

Your writing on games of this type will take multiple forms (news, interviews, opinions), but the bulk of your time will be spent creating industry-leading guides. We’re after someone who can cover a handful of these GAAS titles in detail, reporting on them from a position of knowledge, but at least 60% of your time will be dedicated to guide content.

We want someone who will be part of our tight-knit team, working alongside our Guides Editor on a daily basis, but also pitching stories to senior editors and appearing in our new video and podcast content.

You don’t have to have tons of experience to apply for this role, but some previous games writing is definitely a bonus, as is some knowledge of SEO.

It’s an exciting time at VG247, with a forthcoming website redesign due to kick off a new era for the site. If you want to be part of our future growth, we’d love to hear from you.

A UK based writer is preferred (remote is fine, but we also have an office in Brighton), but please do apply and we can consider all writers on a case-by-case basis.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
