Ubisoft Confirms Return to Steam with Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Ubisoft to return to Steam's "unrealistic" distribution model.

In the same year, Ubisoft vice president for partnerships and revenues, Chris Early, said that Steam's distribution model was "unrealistic."...

    What? You thought the promoted cosmetics were going to be unlockable just by playing?

    The promised Liquidators Event for Battlefield 2042 is here and, like most things concerning the game, it has proven to be rather disappointing for many players.


    First off, let's just address the elephant in the room. Most of the event skins that were used in the marketing and promotional materials for the event are locked behind a paywall. That's right, all but five skins (2 Specialists,...

    Volition Promises a Major Saints Row Bug Fix Update for November

    The company also revealed some rather anemic sales figures.

    The new Saints Row game had a hell of a rocky launch. It was panned by critics and fans alike for its myriad of bugs, performance issues, and repetitive gameplay. Sadly, while the gameplay part can't just be easily "fixed," the bugs and other issues can be addressed and that is precisely what Volition plans to do.

    In late November, Volition says they will release a major update to the game that will tackle...

    Modern Warfare 2 Players Need a Phone Number to Play

    Pre-paid phone numbers may not work.

    Activision Blizzard seems to be very keen on ensuring their potential players have mobile phones. You guys all have phones, right? When Overwatch 2 launched just last week, Blizzard had a policy in place right from the get-go that you needed a cellphone in order to play the game. The catch there was that this ruled out those using pre-paid phones.

    For a lot of people, this meant that they were now unable to play the game (Overwatch)...

    Origin is Dead, Long Live the 'EA App'

    EA says that Origin is now legacy software on PC.

    If you are still running the Origin client from EA, I just have to ask: What's it like living in the past, old man?! You need to get with the times and download the new EA app. This new launcher with the beyond generic name has been in development for well over two years at this point. It was announced as an update and rebranding for the Origin client on PC and, well, it's here. Yay?

    EA says that the EA app (no actual capitalization...

    For several years now, both Sony and Microsoft have offered their console subscribers some "free" monthly games as part of their subscription services. Sony has had PlayStation Plus and Microsoft has had Games with Gold as part of Xbox Live Gold. Each service typically gives out roughly two to four titles every month that you are free to keep so long as you were subscribed when they were offered.
