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.

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....

  • Starfield Announced as Next-Gen Title

    Starfield Announced as Next-Gen Title

    Years after speculation and rumor, Bethesda finally confirmed tonight that Starfield is indeed a real game that is really coming from them. Starfield is the first new IP from Bethesda in 25 years.

    I wouldn't have believed that fact myself if it didn't come straight from Bethesda themselves.

    Much like The Elder Scrolls VI, we know next to nothing about Starfield. All that we have heard is that it's a "next-gen" game. That sure sounds like it won't be coming out for a very long time. Just think though, The Elder Scrolls VI is supposedly coming out after this does. Yeah, expect some news about these games...

  • The Elder Scrolls VI Announced

    The Elder Scrolls VI Announced

    Oh yeah, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls VI tonight.

    There are no details on this game. None. It's literally still in pre-production. In fact, I wouldn't expect to see anything about this game for at least another year if not more. Bethesda just kind of announced it now so that people would stop asking them about it.

    Of course, now people are going to whine that they haven't seen anything about the game for months or potentially years. Bethesda's Todd Howard said that The Elder Scrolls VI will be coming after the just announced Starfield. As Starfield is being called a "next-gen" title, I wouldn't...

  • The Elder Scrolls: Blades Announced - Mobile First Starting in Fall then Coming to Other Platforms Later

    It used to be a joke that Bethesda would announce a new Elder Scrolls game for mobile devices before they announced a new one for consoles and PC. Today, that joke is no more because it's a reality.

Following that, it will be released on other platforms though dates have not yet been announced.

    Prey: Mooncrash DLC Announced and Released Tonight

    If you like the trend of companies announcing a new game or piece of content at E3 and then telling you that it's available right now, you're going to love the fact that Arkane and Bethesda announced and released Prey: Mooncrash tonight during E3.

    This release goes alongside a new title update for the game that also includes new ways to play. They also announced the current availability of Prey: Digital Deluxe and teased another upcoming piece of DLC focused on multiplayer. Psssst, the multiplayer is like GMOD Prop Hunt and that sounds pretty neat to me!
    Description: Fight overwhelming odds to escape a secret TranStar moon base where the enemies you encounter, the hazards you face, the goals you complete, and the loot you collect are diffe

    DOOM Eternal will be Hell on Earth

    A new DOOM game was revealed tonight as part of Bethesda's big E3 conference. It's called DOOM Eternal but for many of us it may as well be called Doom II: Hell on Earth. Doom Eternal is a direct sequel to the 2016 DOOM.
    Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. As the DOOM Slayer, return to take your vengeance against the forces of Hell.
