Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that the game was available...
 

Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

The original plan from Red Candle Games was to remove the game from...
 

Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019.

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...

  • Battlefield V Chapter 4 Hotfix 1.1 Update Addresses Poor Hit Registration

    Battlefield V Chapter 4 Hotfix 1.1 Update Addresses Poor Hit Registration

    Invisibility bug still remains.

    DICE will release a hotfix patch for Battlefield V Chapter 4 tomorrow. This comes roughly a week after a fairly disastrous update introduced a number of game breaking bugs to the game.

    While this update may not fix all of the top issues introduced in that last patch, it does tackle a few of them. It must be stated that today's update does not address the issue of invisible character models. This issue, introduced in the last update, is still going to come up until they figure out a fix.

    However, this update does address the...

  • Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    No solid ETA on when they will be either.

    If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

    The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...

  • Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    This mode places a larger emphasis on teamwork and building, not murder.

    DICE released the latest weekly game mode for Battlefield V earlier today. It's called Outpost and it will be live from today through to next week. It is a 64-player game type playable on Arras and Mercury. The basic idea behind this mode isn't necessarily about killing, but rather on building up, upgrading, destroying, and controlling radio towers.

    Teams will win when they beat the enemy to reaching a set number of points. Points in Outpost are called "recruits." You get more of these...

  • Battlefield V - Introduction Videos for Marita and Al Sundan Maps, Iwo Jima Returning this Fall

    Coming this July.

    During EA Play 2019, DICE and EA provided some introductory videos for Marita and Al Sundan (pictured above). Marita will be released this July while Al Sundan will be out on June 27 for Battlefield V.

    But then again, we already knew about this.

    We have both introductory videos for Marita and Al Sundan below. Two additional maps coming at a date "to be determined" is Lofoten Island and Provance. The final map revealed was Operation Underground, which is slated for October. Yes, this is the Operation Metro set in WWII you've always...

  • EA is Changing the Name of Their Latest Battlefield V Elite Soldier

    EA is Changing the Name of Their Latest Battlefield V Elite Soldier

    It turns out the name belonged to a real-world resistance fighter, not a Nazi.

    One of the new Elite soldiers in Battlefield V is getting a name change from EA and DICE. The new Elite, Wilhelm Franke, is the current name of one of the pre-built soldiers players can purchase for real money to use in multiplayer.

    This character in Battlefield V is a German that fights for the Axis, aka "the baddies." Or to say it another way: He's a Nazi. In real life, Wilhelm Franke was the name of an anti-fascist resistance fighter during WWII. He fought in Dresden and was arrested...

  • Mercury Map Released Early as DICE Pulls Two Game Modes from Battlefield V

    Mercury Map Released Early as DICE Pulls Two Game Modes from Battlefield V

    DICE giveth and they taketh away.

    First, the good news for Battlefield V fans. Today, DICE released the new Mercury map a day earlier than expected. It seems as though today's release doesn't actually require any additional client update as it was included in the last major update from last week. That's awesome! You can dive in, perhaps literally, to the new Mercury map right now on all platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    What you cannot do right now is play the Frontlines or Domination modes anymore. Ah yes, here's the "bad news" portion of today's...

  • A Look at the New Mercury Map Coming Thursday to Battlefield V

    A Look at the New Mercury Map Coming Thursday to Battlefield V

    The battle for Crete is about to begin.

    A reveal trailer for the upcoming Mercury map was released a little bit ago today. This map is coming on May 30 for everybody that owns Battlefield V and will cost you nothing. It is, hopefully, the start of some fresh maps for the game which is in desperate need of new content.

    This map will be the start of a few Mediterranean themed maps. This one in particular takes place during the real-life Operation Mercury along the Cretan coast. The next chapter starting in June, Chapter 4, will then add in the Marita map, presumably based...

  • Real Money 'Battlefield Currency' Finally Announced for Battlefield V; New Patch Arrives April 4


    Two things were revealed by DICE and EA today for Battlefield V. First is the changelog for the soon to be released Battlefield V update. This is the second update for Chapter 3: Trial by Fire and, as you expect, includes a lot of changes for the Firestorm battle royale mode. Do note that the link I provided here to the update changelog is to a PDF.

    With that out of the way, it's now time to talk about "Battlefield Currency." The community has already started to call them "Boins," so don't be surprised if you see that pop up more than once. This is a new...

  • Battlefield V 2019 Roadmap Reveals New Map Releases and New Theater of War

    Battlefield V 2019 Roadmap Reveals New Map Releases and New Theater of War

    DICE has finally provided the roadmap for Battlefield V through Fall 2019. Included in this roadmap are mentions of new maps, which look to begin in May, and a new theater of war. Given the name of the new theater, Awakening the Giant, slated for Fall 2019, is the upcoming theater of war.

    Given the title of that new theater, I think it's safe to say that they're referencing the United States. This is based off of the famous quote from Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto in reference to the United States following the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan.



    If there's...
