Title Manager

The Title Manager plugin is specifically designed to manage the title-wide (game-wide) features, for games built using Construct 3 and Construct 2.


In PlayFab, title refers to the game. The Title Manager plugin lets you access the game-wide features including the following:

  • Catalog

  • Store items

  • Title data (Global game data)

  • Title news (Game news)

  • Server time

Step 4 : Select the Title News tab.

Step 5 : Set here the news you want to announce to your game application users.
