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....

    Black Ops 4 Beta Begins in August, PC to Have Open Beta

    According to statements listed on the GameStop Germany page for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the beta will begin in August. In addition, the PC version will have an open beta.

    The site says that the launch of the private beta for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will take place in August. It goes on to say that the PC release will not need beta codes because the PC beta in particular will be "open" for all Battle.net players.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Not Coming to Nintendo Switch

    It seemed like 2018 would be the year that Call of Duty came to the Nintendo Switch but uh, I guess not. According to an interview Twinfinite conducted with Treyarch's Senior Producer Yale Miller and Gameplay Designer Matt Scronce, there are just no plans to bring Black Ops 4 to the Switch.
    Hey, maybe they just didn't have enough time, you know? Maybe it got lost in the past three ...

  • Black Ops 4 - No Single Player Campaign; Battle Royale Mode and BattleNet Exclusive Confirmed

    There are times where you don't actually want to believe some rumors. That's the case with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which just had its big reveal event much to the delight of Zombies, multiplayer, and battle royale fans. Sorry single player campaign fans, you aren't included in this celebration. That's right, Treyarch and Activision have officially killed off the single player campaign for Call of Duty. What's more is that they killed it off from the Black Ops series, which is arguably the best recent story arch the Call of Duty games have had going for it in quite some time. Instead, we have three different Zombies campaigns, the usual competitive multiplayer stuff, and a battle royale mode that we saw a total of 0 seconds of gameplay for today. Also, the PC release looks like it's exclusive to Battle.net with the port being han...

  • It's Time for Call of Duty to Ditch PC and the Single-Player Campaign

    It's Time for Call of Duty to Ditch PC and the Single-Player Campaign

    Yesterday, it was revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII was going to ditch the single-player campaign due to unspecified "development issues." This begs the question: Is this the beginning of the end for the single-player Call of Duty experience? More importantly, should this be the end of single-player campaigns for Call of Duty?

    In short: Yes.

    According to PSNProfiles, only 31.34% of all PlayStation 4 owners beat Call of Duty: WWII's single-player campaign. Compare that to the 36.51% that hit Prestige 1 in the online multiplayer, and the over 37% that completed the first map of Zombies. For a franchise that once seemed to pride itself on...

  • Rumor: Battle Royale Mode Included with Black Ops 4

    Rumor: Battle Royale Mode Included with Black Ops 4

    I saw this earlier in Discord and I thought it was just some stupid joke. Nope, apparently there's a fairly solid rumor going around that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will include a Battle Royale mode.

    Both Kotaku and Charlie Intel posted independent rumors today that Raven Software is working on this Battle Royale mode for the Treyarch developed Black Ops IIII.
    Via Kotaku:

  • Sources Say Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to Ditch Traditional Single-Player Campaign

    According to a report that went up today from Polygon, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will not feature a "traditional" single-player campaign. It will instead focus more on the multiplayer and Zombie modes.

    Sources close to Polygon said that development by Treyarch on Black Ops IIII has been going rather poorly. As a result, it seems as though the single-player campaign wasn't going to be completed in time for the game's release date, which is still set for October 12, 2018. At some point, development then switched away from creating the single player campaign to expanding the game's multiplayer and Zombies modes. The source then goes on to say t...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is Reportedly Real and Won't Include Multiplayer

    Two separate sources have independently confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is indeed real. Both of these sources have also said that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is only the single player component from the original game.

    Sources have supplied this information to Charlie Intel and (presumably) other sources have separately supplied this information to Eurogamer...

  • Next Call of Duty Seems to be Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII

    Next Call of Duty Seems to be Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII

    It started as a rumor earlier tonight but some anonymous sources close to Kotaku have confirmed that the next Call of Duty title will be Call of Duty: Black Ops IV. Sorry, wait a second.

    I meant to say that the next Call of Duty title looks to be Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII. The tally marks, Mason, what do they mean?! If you're reading this and suddenly feel dumber, how do you think I felt having to write it out? That's right, to hell with conventional roman numerals! This is 'merica! We do things real stupid-like here and that's just the way it is! The rumor first started tonight when Houston Rockets player James Harden put on a full ca...
