Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

Library
First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...
 

The Outer Worlds, Remedy's Control, Detroit: Become Human, and More Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusives


As part of today's GDC presentation, Epic Games announced a number of timed exclusives that are coming first to the Epic Games Store. Among these games are The Outer Worlds, Control from Remedy Entertainment, and even some PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream.

Some of these titles, such as The Outer Worlds, will also appear on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. I guess this just lends more confirmation that Epic is less about purchasing exclusives and more about simply paying companies to keep their games off of Steam. Consumers should not...
 

System Shock 3 GDC Teaser


As part of the Unity keynote at GDC 2019, a new teaser trailer for System Shock 3 was shown off. I suppose that also confirms that System Shock 3 is being built on Unity. I think that was already known prior to this? Perhaps not.

The game is currently in development from OtherSide Entertainment. A release date for the horror title is not yet known. ...
 

Nvidia Announces Real-time Ray Tracing for Older GTX Cards


Nvidia just announced today that they are bringing real-time ray tracing to their GTX lineup of cards. This support will begin with a driver update currently slated for some time in April.

Get ready to have your framerates destroyed. Think about it this way: Nvidia's RTX cards have special hardware that is dedicated to handling the load of real-time ray tracing. Even with this special hardware, enabling real-time ray tracing still destroys framerates on these new cards.

Now they're going to add support for it on to their older cards? It will certainly make your...
 

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....

  • Call of Duty: Mobile Announced

    Call of Duty: Mobile Announced


    Call of Duty: Mobile was announced today. Take your favorite maps, modes, and characters with you in the palm of your hand from across the various Call of Duty stories. The game is being developed by Tencent's studio, Timi. It's coming for both Android and iOS and will also include multiple game modes when released.

    It will be published by Activision, obviously. It will be a free-to-play title at release. I'm assuming that the game will contain in-app purchases. I would be absolutely shocked if it didn't.

    If you already know you're on board with this, you can...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Rated in Europe

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Rated in Europe


    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was apparently just been given a rating by the Pan European Game Information board (PEGI). This specific rating is for the PlayStation 4. And yes, that is the actual title that is given.

    So far, nothing about this has been announced by Activision yet. Hell, nothing about this year's Call of Duty release has been revealed at all yet.

    I just can't help but feel incredibly indifferent about this if the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer isn't included alongside the campaign. Or if they do what they did with Call of Duty:...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' Free Trial is Now Live on All Platforms

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' Free Trial is Now Live on All Platforms


    From today (January 17) through to January 23, players on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One can download and play the Blackout game type from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. As a quick reminder, Blackout is the battle royale mode that was introduced this year to the Call of Duty franchise.



    This free trial coincides with the release of the 1.11 update for the PC version of Black Ops 4. The 1.11 update came out just a couple of days ago for the console versions of the game. The PS4 version of the game now also has the new "Down But Not Out" limited-time...

    Operation Absolute Zero Live for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PS4

    PlayStation 4 owners with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 can now download and play Operation Absolute Zero. This is, so far, the biggest content drop for Black Ops 4 since the game was released. Xbox One and PC players will have to wait until December 18 to play this new content because timed exclusives are stupid but it is what it is.

    Charlie INTEL has a very nice rundown of the changes included in today's big updates.
    Multiplayer:

    • An all new Specialist, Zero, is now live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 MP. Players can use this new specialist with the disruptor equipment and hack enemy kill streaks.
    • The brand new Operation Absolute Zero Contraband Stream is live in the Black Market!

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    The lack of a single player campaign sure as hell doesn't seem to matter to most of the gaming world, as evident by the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has pulled in over $500 million (USD) in worldwide sales just over its launch weekend.

    To put it perspective, that is about the same amount that Call of Duty: WWII pulled in last year. However, it is down ever so slightly from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 that pulled in over $550 million in its first three days.
    "Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start," said Activision executive vice president and Call of Duty GM Rob Kostich. "Our player counts and hours played are up year

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Breaks Sales Records for Activision

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Breaks Sales Records for Activision

    Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was set a new launch day sales record. According to the publisher, Black Ops 4 is the "biggest one day digital release" in their history.

    This naturally broke the previous record set by 2017's Call of Duty: WWII. Black Ops 4 also set records on the PlayStation for most day one digital full game sales through the PlayStation Store. It was also the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one. Though this was the first year for the Call of Duty franchise to appear solely on Battle.net, sales of the PC version were more than double when compared to last year's...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Released Today

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Released Today

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was released today. It has a variety of multiplayer modes that may or may not appeal to you. There are competitive multiplayer modes, a battle royale mode called Blackout, and some Zombies campaigns. There is no single player campaign in this year's release.
    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 features three distinct modes of play: Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout. Multiplayer features gritty, grounded combat in the most tactical, team-based experience in the Black Ops series to date.

  • Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    The launch trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 came out today. I mean, the game is out on October 12, 2018 so having a launch trailer now isn't exactly out of the ordinary.

    It's a launch trailer. It shows off some scenes of action, it has some voice over work, and the like. Since Black Ops 4 doesn't have a single player campaign, you really don't have to worry about seeing any spoilers here, so that's a plus, right?

    However, there are still some secrets hidden in the trailer. Charlie INTEL notes that the launch trailer gives you a little look at two previously unannounced multiplayer maps.
