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....

  • Prey: Mooncrash DLC Announced and Released Tonight

    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.

    Session Skates Onto Xbox with an E3 Trailer

    Session looks to fill the gaping void left behind by no Skate 4 announcement from EA. Session is an upcoming skateboarding game headed to the Xbox One.
    Heavily inspired by the golden era and skate culture of the late 90s/early 2000s, Project: Session is all about authenticity and creativity. Freedom of expression is the core of skateboarding so players shouldn't have to worry about how many point their tricks are worth. Instead, Session offers a unique control scheme that gives players full control.

    Devil May Cry 5 Announced, Coming Spring 2019

    After months and months of waiting, the time has finally come (and so have I!) for the Devil May Cry 5 reveal. The game is planned for a Spring 2019 reveal and while it was shown off during the Microsoft conference, you can expect to see it on the PlayStation 4 and PC in addition to the Xbox.

  • Three New Gears Games Coming - One is Gears 5, One is a Strategy Game, One is a Funko Pop! Mobile Game

    Microsoft revealed not one, not two, but THREE new Gears games today during their E3 conference. At least one of them is decidedly unlike anything you would probably ever want from that franchise. One is perhaps closer to what you may enjoy, Gears Tactics. And the last one is just Gears 5. That's Gears 5, not Gears of War 5.

    Let's start with the first announcement that was made, Gears Pop!. It's an upcoming mobile game for Android and iOS devices that will be released in 2019. Yes, it's a Gears game with Funko Pop! characters. I don't know either.
    Gears of War and Funko POP! join forces to bring a new Gears game to mobile devices for the first time. Coming in 2019.

    Alrighty. Next up is a strate...

    PUBG Had an E3 Trailer with Snow and Explosions

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds also had an E3 trailer today during Microsoft's event. While it was for the Xbox version of the game, there are still some new features that will be added to the PC version as well. We're looking at a riot shield, and a glimpse of the upcoming map with snow that seems to allow you to track others via their foot prints. That is exactly what I wanted the moment they even hinted at snow being included with an upcoming map some months ago.
