Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...
 

Stela is a New 'Cinematic Platformer' from SkyBox Labs


SkyBox Labs, a development studio that is helping to co-develop Halo Infinite with 343 Industries, just announced a new title today. Their new game is called Stela and it's being billed as a "cinematic platformer." It's looking for a 2019 release on the Xbox One and PC and will make its debut at GDC 2019 as part of Microsoft's ID@Xbox Developer Showcase.

Players will have to overcome challenges and alter the terrain in order to solve puzzles and make their way past various enemies. The first trailer for the game was shown off today. More information will eventually...
 

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...
 

EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft and Ubisoft are still going...

  • Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores

    Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores


    Valve has had a major problem these past few years with user submitted reviews. One of the biggest issues with user reviews, be they on Steam or anywhere, is when a push is made by a community to review bomb a game or other form of media. These usually result in a ton of negative reviews in a short span of time for a product because of some perceived slight by a studio concerning a game.

    Steam displays user scores in a couple of ways. They show the average of the most recent scores given to a title and the average of all of the reviews from the start. So while the short-term...

  • Security Researchers Find '39 Percent' of Counter-Strike 1.6 Servers Used to Spread Malware


    This week, security researchers from Russia's Dr.Web (PDF), filed a report saying that roughly 39% of Counter-Strike 1.6 servers were used to spread malware to users. The report, filed on Monday, found that these malicious servers exploited a remote code execution (RCE) flaw in the game client to spread a new malware variant called Belonard.

    These servers were nothing more than proxy servers set up to display low pings, enticing players to try to connect to them. When players connected to those servers, they were redirected to the malicious servers that had one of four different...

  • Epic Games Launcher Allegedly Scrapes Local Steam Data Prior to Granting Consent, Epic Responds

    Earlier today, Reddit user PhoenixPoint and ResetEra member Madjoki found out that the Epic Games Launcher may be collecting your Steam history at startup. As part of their investigation, they found that at startup, the Epic Games Launcher searches your local computer for a Steam install. If it finds that Steam is installed, it then apparently proceeds to pull a list of files typically stored in your Steam Cloud. This data includes game saves for all users that have logged in to Steam on your computer.

    Madjoki also found that it pulls a list of your Steam friends and their name history....

  • Turtle Rock is Making a New Zombie Filled Co-op FPS Game

    Turtle Rock is Making a New Zombie Filled Co-op FPS Game


    Turtle Rock Studios, the development studio that created Left 4 Dead and who eventually brought us Left 4 Dead 2 and Evolve (but let's not talk about that one) is working on a new co-op FPS. And just like Left 4 Dead, this new title will also include plenty of zombies.

    The game is called Back 4 Blood (I see what they did there) and it will be published by WBIE. It's a bit early to say how this one will turn out since a lot of the old Turtle Rock kind of merged with Valve for a while there. We'll obviously be keeping our eyes on this one though.

    Turtle Rock has...

  • Bloody Palace Mode Arrives April 1 for Devil May Cry 5

    Bloody Palace Mode Arrives April 1 for Devil May Cry 5


    Capcom announced today that the free Bloody Palace Mode for Devil May Cry 5 will be released on April 1.

    No, this isn't an early April Fools joke. They actually make sure to point this fact out in the press release.

    Bloody Palace Mode has been a fan favorite and has been included in every Devil May Cry game aside from the first game. It's a bit like a wave-based game mode that has enemies that grow in strength the further along you go.

    Four Sniper Elite Projects Announced - Includes a V2 Remaster, VR, and More


    Developer Rebellion announced today four separate Sniper Elite projects that are being worked on. These include a full sequel to Sniper Elite 4, which I'm guessing will be called Sniper Elite 5 though the press release doesn't state as such.

    There is also a VR Sniper Elite project that is being worked on, a Switch release of Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition, and Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a thing. Why V2? Why not the first Sniper Elite game? Man, I don't know!

    Sniper Elite V2 Remastered will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the Nintendo Switch...
