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...

  • Battlefield 5 Adds Combined Arms Co-op, Balancing, and More in Tomorrow's Update


    A patch that is tentatively slated to be released tomorrow, February 12, will add in some new content and features for Battlefield 5 players. Some of these new features include a four-player co-op game mode called Combined Arms. The update will also add in DLSS support and better RTX support for those using supported cards.

    DLSS is a new technology that, in simple terms, makes the game look better and perform better through machine learning. It's mainly useful for resolutions at 4K or better and should, in theory, constantly result in better performance and near identical...

  • Paradox Potentially Teasing New Vampire: The Masquerade Game via Dating App ARG


    This one is coming at you hot and fast from PC Gamer. A new report from the digital magazine suggests that Paradox Interactive is possibly teasing a new Vampire: The Masquerade game via a fake dating app.

    The app is called Tender and it's claim to fame is a "soulmate algorithm." You can even sign into it using your existing Paradox account. And I wouldn't worry too much about actually getting matched with someone. Even their announcement video seems to indicate that things are not as they seem with Tender.

    When you first sign into the app, it asks for...

  • Metro Exodus 'Artyom's Nightmare' Trailer

    Metro Exodus 'Artyom's Nightmare' Trailer


    Look, I cannot recall if I already posted this trailer or not. Chances are, I probably missed this last week when it actually came out. However, we're in the here and now and I can't just go and alter history, so I'm posting it for you today. This here is a new trailer for Metro Exodus. If you already watched it, then it's obviously not new, but do spare me the semantics.

    4A Games and Deep Silver call this one "Artyom's Nightmare" and it is a CGI animated short. It serves as a "dream-like prologue to the events of Metro Exodus."

    The game itself...

  • Jump Force Launch Week Begins with New Trailer

    Jump Force Launch Week Begins with New Trailer


    The last I checked, there have been roughly 7 million videos released so far for Jump Force. My count may be off by a little bit. However, the videos keep on coming with the launch of the game rapidly approaching.

    Today, we get a new trailer for the game. It doesn't show off any one character in particular. Instead, it highlights "the diverse roster of iconic manga heroes and villains as they go toe-to-toe against each other for the fate of our world and theirs."

    Jump FOrce is slated to arrive on February 15 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via...

  • Square Enix Giving Away Original Artwork by Yoji Shinkawa as Part of Left Alive Pre-Order Contest


    Square Enix passed along word today that those who pre-order Left Alive from their own storefront will have a chance at winning an original piece of artwork from Yoji Shinkawa. Those who are pre-ordering should do so before March 4, 2019 in order to be entered in to the random drawing for the art.

  • New World War Z Trailer Shows Off PvPvZ Multiplayer Gameplay

    New World War Z Trailer Shows Off PvPvZ Multiplayer Gameplay


    A new trailer for the upcoming World War Z game shows off some PvPvZ multiplayer action. Get it? Z? Zombies? Clever.

    This new trailer does actually show off what parts of the game will be like. Though the core game is still co-op against the zeds, there are some competitive modes that see groups of four going up against another group of four players. Of course, the big wildcard in this is the always present swarm of undead that tends not to pick sides in this competitive battle. They're an equal-opportunity opponent. ...
