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....
 

Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...

SkyBox Labs, a development studio that is helping to co-develop Halo Infinite with 343 Industries, just announced a new title today. Their new game is called Stela and it's being billed as a "cinematic platformer." It's looking for a 2019 release on the Xbox One and PC and will make its debut at GDC 2019 as part of Microsoft's ID@Xbox Developer Showcase.

Players will have to overcome challenges and alter the terrain in order to solve puzzles and make their way past various enemies. The first trailer for the game was shown off today. More information will eventually...
 

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...

  • Wreckfest Celebrates Upcoming Release with a New Trailer

    Wreckfest Celebrates Upcoming Release with a New Trailer

    In about a week on June 14, Wreckfest will finally leave Early Access and will be released on the PC. A console release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be released on November 20.

    For those of you still waiting for the final release, there is something very important to note here: The price will rise once it leaves Early Access. That means if you want the game, you should probably get it now before release so you don't pay the increased price of $44.99 (USD). It's up to you, of course, but I'm just looking out for you and your wallet. Maybe you can even repay my kindness by sending some of that saved money my way. No? Well,...

  • Rumor: Crackdown 3 Delayed Until 2019

    Rumor: Crackdown 3 Delayed Until 2019

    Try to at least act surprised when you read this, okay?

    According to sources close to Kotaku, Crackdown 3 has been delayed until 2019. The game was originally announced back at E3 2014. It was given a rough "2016" release window.

    It did not come out in 2016.

    At some point it was said to be ready for release alongside the Xbox One X in early November 2017.

    It was not.

    It was then pushed to a Spring 2018 release period. Looking at my calendar, I'd say that's a swing and a miss as well. Now we're possibly looking at a 2019 release for the game that long ago promised to harness the power of the ...

  • Valve Will Continue to Do Nothing About What Games Appear on Steam

    Valve Will Continue to Do Nothing About What Games Appear on Steam

    Valve has essentially said "fuck it, put whatever you want on Steam just so long as we get a piece."

    This seems to be the general tone of today's blog post by Valve's Erik Johnson. The company that runs Steam continues to show that they kind of don't really care about what appears on the platform so long as it's not "illegal or straight up trolling." Of course, Valve also noted that they are the ones who ultimately decide what is "illegal" or "trolling" as it applies to games on their platform.
    (W)e've decided that the right approach is to allow everything onto the Steam Store, except for things that we decide are illegal, or straight up trolling. Taking this approach allows us to focus less on trying to police what should be on Steam, and
