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...

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.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

    Battlerite: Battle Royale Mode Announced

    What do you get when even an "action MOBA/arena brawler" jumps onto the battle royale bandwagon? You apparently get the Battlerite: Battle Royale mode that was just announced today. This new mode is slated to arrive this Summer and will combine its action MOBA roots/arena brawler gameplay with battle royale gameplay. It will feature gameplay on a map that is "30 times larger than the standard arena mode map" with up to 20 players.

  • Destiny 2 is Activision's Largest PC Launch Ever

    Destiny 2 is Activision's Largest PC Launch Ever

    Activision low-key revealed that Destiny 2 is officially the "largest PC launch in Activision history based on units." They also said that it was the second highest grossing console game of 2017 in North America behind, you guessed it, Call of Duty: WWII.

    This is all according to Activision-Blizzard's proxy statement (PDF) with a nod to PCGamesN for bringing it to everyone's attention. Some other bits of information pulled from the document show that Activision-Blizzard had a record setting $2.21 billion annual operating cash flow. They also delivered "record segment operating income of over $1 bil...

  • Battleborn Community Weekend

    Battleborn Community Weekend

    If I were to tell you that Battleborn has a new four-day community weekend coming up, what would you say? You'd probably laugh, right? Well, I looked it up and apparently there's still like 50 some people playing that game on PC, which is 49 more players than what you would find playing LawBreakers right now. Crazy, right?

    Gearbox has some stuff coming to those current players and any player who decides to once again fire up the game.

  • The Third New Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer is Here

    The Third New Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer is Here

    As expected, Rockstar Games released the third new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2. I'm sure nobody is going to read these opening words anyway and will just skip straight to the trailer, embedded below, so nothing I'll say up here really matters anyway!
    America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels

  • Oculus Stealth Releases Gear VR Competitor Oculus Go

    Oculus Stealth Releases Gear VR Competitor Oculus Go

    Earlier today, Oculus VR released what looks to be the first major competitor to things like the Gear VR by Samsung and Daydream from Google. They're calling it Oculus Go and it starts at $199 (USD) for the 32GB model or $249 for the 64GB model.

    It's important to note that this is not a successor for the Oculus Rift. This is instead a standalone device that is about as powerful as a current-gen smartphone would be. The key difference here is that it doesn't require a phone to work. Hell, it doesn't seem to even require any connection to another device at all. It uses a Snapdragon 821 chipset (same as the Galaxy S7) but with higher clock speeds. It's also...

  • Fortnite Season 4 Kicks Off with a Comet Sized Impact

    Fortnite Season 4 Kicks Off with a Comet Sized Impact

    So I guess all of that teasing about a comet in Fortnite has finally come to a head today. Epic tells me that the fourth season for their very popular battle royale game has started "with a bang." That is to say, pieces of the big comet in the sky have come crashing down in to the play area to alter it rather significantly. Fortnite Season 4 includes some new landscape to play in, new gravity defying Hop Rocks, over 100 new cosmetic items for the Battle Pass, and more. It should also be noted that for the first time, the Battle Pass for Season 4 includes sprays. Those playing the single player based Save the World also have s...
