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...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

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...

  • Rumors: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Details - Set in Ancient Greece, Dialogue Options, and More

    The next Assassin's Creed game was apparently leaked via a key chain (seen above). It looks like it will be called Assassin's Creed Odyssey and will take place in ancient Greece. A new report from JeuxVideoLive, and confirmed by Kotaku's own sources, says that Odyssey will serve as a sequel to last year's Assassin's Creed Origins.

    According to Kotaku's sources, the game is indeed set in Greece. It will add in dialogue options for the first time in the franchise, making the game a bit more Witcher like than ever before. You will also get to play as either a male or female protagonist. Sadly, these aren't Bayek or...

    Former STALKER Devs Announce Battle Royale FPS - Fear the Wolves


    Former developers from GSC GameWorld, the development studio for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise, have just announced a new battle royale FPS that they've been working on. Vostok Games provides us with the first look at Fear the Wolves ahead of its planned 2018 release. If you are hoping for a 100 player battle royale game set in the post-apocalyptic lands you've come to love from STALKER, well we have good news for you.
    The game drops players, in squads or as lone wolves, into the oppressive environment of a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl. The classic Battle Royale mode forces them to fight to be the last man standing out of 100 fighters, while another to-be-unveiled

  • Maxi Confirmed for Soulcalibur VI

    Maxi Confirmed for Soulcalibur VI


    Another franchise regular, Maxi, was also confirmed for the Soulcalibur VI roster today.
    Let's be real here, was there really any doubt that Maxi wouldn't be included in the roster? Soulcalibur VI is slated to be released at some point in 2018 for the PS4, XB1, and PC via Steam. There's going to be more Soulcalibur VI shown off at E3 next month so I'm sure...

    Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition Rated for PC, PS4, and XB1

    Over in Korea, they're quite busy rating games that have not yet been publicly announced yet. The latest seems to be Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition which has been rated for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    Either the Korean ratings board is just super board and wanting to troll the world or there is something to these mysterious new ratings that they're handing out.

    2K first released the original Borderlands for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC back in late 2009. They have not yet appeared on current-generation platforms, unlike the sequels. Both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel were remastered...

  • Prepare for Fallout 76 to Not Be the Fallout You Want

    Prepare for Fallout 76 to Not Be the Fallout You Want

    Earlier today, Bethesda finally stopped their night of teasing and indeed provided a reveal for a new Fallout game!

    Today, Bethesda announced Fallout 76. They released no information about the game in the slightest. All they officially provided to the world is an announcement trailer and some screen grabs from the trailer. You can see those all at the bottom.

    It looks like the trailer was intentionally vague. That is perhaps for good reason because sources have told Kotaku that Fallout 76 is an online survival RPG. With how coy everything about this announcement has been, this isn't entirely unexpected. Fallout 76 is named after Vault 76, which has been me...

  • Valve Pulls School Shooting Simulator from Steam, Calls Developer a 'Troll'

    Valve Pulls School Shooting Simulator from Steam, Calls Developer a 'Troll'

    Valve has called the developer of Active Shooter a "troll with a history of customer abuse." Active Shooter was slated to release on June 6 from developer Revived Games publisher ACID. It was a game that would allow players to experience a mass shooting from either the point of view of the shooter or the point of view of the SWAT team that was tasked with taking them down. As you may have already guessed, some people were rightfully pissed off about this. Thankfully Valve stepped in and have decided to pull the game from Steam. In addition, they have also removed Revived Games and ACID from Steam. I would like to believe that this would have happened regardless of ...

    Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr Delayed on Consoles

    Last month, a release date of June 5 was set for Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As it turns out, that's not happening.

    Neocore and Bigben have pushed back the release date from June 5 to "later this Summer."
    Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr is an ambitious action-RPG, with vast and complex mechanics. With such an immense gameplay experience - entirely redesigned for console players - the development studio, Neocore, will need additional time to perfect the game's unique functionalities, such as local multiplayer and procedural map generation.
