Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that the game was available...
 

Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

The original plan from Red Candle Games was to remove the game from...
 

Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...

    The mysterious new IP teased by FromSoftware last year, Shadows Die Twice, now has a full name and a full trailer reveal courtesy of Microsoft's E3 2018 conference earlier this week. The game is called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and we'll say this right now: It's not Dark Souls and it's not Bloodborne. It's still an action-RPG though.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is slated to be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Since Microsoft provided the world premiere look at the game, we should see what they have to say about it.

  • The Division 2 Releases March 15, 2019 - New E3 Trailer and Gameplay Footage

    The Division 2 Releases March 15, 2019 - New E3 Trailer and Gameplay Footage

    We got some fresh news, footage, and gameplay details for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 this week thanks to E3 2018. Gone are the snow covered streets of New York from the first game. The crew is taking the fight to Washington, D.C. in what looks to be the season of Summer following the outbreak.

    The Division 2 runs on an updated version of the Snowdrop Engine, which I find a bit amusing since there isn't any snow in the game now. It will be released on March 15, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can register for the beta right now. There is no date set for when this beta will take place and registration does not guarantee access...
