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....

  • #NewsBits - Look at all the Games Released Today. Wow.

    #NewsBits - Look at all the Games Released Today. Wow.

    It's late on a Tuesday and that probably means I slept through most of the day like a moron. Sleeping through Tuesdays is rather bad because that's when most of the game releases happen, unless you're Nintendo. Nintendo prefers Friday. Oddly enough, a number of publishers are starting to shift to Fridays as well, but most still do not. Which brings us back to my first point: My sleep schedule sucks.

    Anyway, let's just get on to that news in the latest installment of CS-Nation's #NewsBits! They've been freshly harvested just for youCaribbean Crisis expansion for Armored Warfare was released today on the PlayStation 4. It adds the new "Special Operations" game mode, new maps, overhauls to older map, new commanders, new Trophies, visual changes, and gameplay changes. Armored Warfare is a F2P game available today on the PS4.

  • Epic Games to Provide $100 Million for Fortnite Esports Prize Pool Winnings in 2018

    Epic Games really wants Fortnite to be the go-to game for esports in 2018. I mean they really want it to be a big thing, so much so that they're pumping $100 million worth of prize winnings into Fortnite tournaments throughout the 2018-2019 competitive season.

    Specifics about how exactly this $100 million will be distributed have not been disclosed by Epic. However, the company has hinted that they're doing some unconventional things with that $100 million.

  • Battlefield V Teaser Points Towards WWII Setting

    Battlefield V Teaser Points Towards WWII Setting

    Earlier today, the official Battlefield Twitter account provided just a tiny little peak at Battlefield V. In the teaser, you see a few things. First and foremost, you see a man saying "shh" but you also see a bit of the game's HUD. The HUD seems like standard stuff for a Battlefield game. But what's that? Are those the flags for the British and German forces? Why yes, I do believe that is the case. Meaning that it's not going to be a Vietnam setting as some people have speculated over the previous few days and will instead be the WWII setting most others figured it would be. It also looks like Battlefield V will have...

  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Launches to Early Access Today on PC and Mac

    Though the official release date isn't set until June 5 for the PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, that hasn't stopped The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset from being released into Early Access today. That's right, starting right now, you can begin your adventures in Summerset Isle, a location not really seen since 1994's The Elder Scrolls Arena.

    This update brings new areas to explore, new quests, the new Psijic Order Skill Line, and Jewelry Crafting. These are obviously also alongside new gear and other changes included in the title update 18.

  • Resident Evil 7 Coming to Switch via Experimental Cloud Streaming

    Resident Evil 7 Coming to Switch via Experimental Cloud Streaming

    So the good news here is that Resident Evil 7 is coming to the Nintendo Switch! The bad news is that it's only coming out in Japan. The potentially worse newsis that it's only being made available as a cloud based streaming game. I suppose that's why they're actually calling it Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version there.

    Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version seems to be the first streaming only game that has been announced for the Switch. The "download" for the game is just 45MB but you will obviously need to have a constant, strong connection to the Internet in order to actually play the game. There is no offline option available. Th...

    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 ...

  • Metro Exodus Delayed Until Early 2019

    Metro Exodus Delayed Until Early 2019

    We thought that Metro Exodus would be released in Q3 of 2018. We thought that because up until this week, that was factually correct. Alas, we must now wait until Q1 2019 to play the game. Let's find out just why that is.

    Deep Silver provided a statement as to why the game was pushed back until next year.
    The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the games progress to ensure that we deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and deserve, as well as keeping an eye on announcements from our competitor products.
