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....

  • Two New Classes Coming to Black Desert Online on April 20

    Two New Classes Coming to Black Desert Online on April 20

    On April 20, two new classes and characters will be added to Black Desert Online.
    The highly anticipated Musa and Maehwa bring unique abilities and a very different play style from the roster of characters currently available. The Musa is a melee class that relies on high speed and fast reactions to stay ahead of the enemy. With incredible mobility and a specialty for AoE-focused attacks, the Musa excels in small-scale PvP. The Musa is at its best when dashing across the battlefield to dispatch enemies with powerful AoE attacks, but each uncalculated move can be deadly due to his lower defense. The Maehwa is the female counterpart to the Musa

  • Former Rockstar North President Leslie Benzies, Suing Take-Two for $150 Million in Unpaid Royalties

    Leslie Benzies, the former President at Rockstar North, is suing Take-Two for $150 million in unpaid royalties. He claims that the company tried to force him out after he took a sabbatical. If you recall, the news back in January made it sound like Benzies had quit out of the blue after a 17-month long sabbatical from the company. Benzies, by way of a statement issued by his legal consult, Christopher Bakes, said that "while on sabbatical, Mr. Benzies discovered numerous deceptions on the part of Take-Two, Rockstar, Rockstar North Ltd, Sam Houser and Dan Houser, who sought to force him out of the company and terminate his portion of royalty ...

  • Evolution Studios Joins Codemasters

    Evolution Studios Joins Codemasters

    At the end of March, news broke about Sony closing down Evolution Studios. The studio was responsible for games like MotorStorm and Driveclub. Early this morning, it was revealed that the entire Evolution team has joined up with Codemasters. Yes, Evolution Studios lives on under the Codemasters umbrella. Most of the staff is still on board and will actually continue to work from the same offices as before. They will be working on new projects since Sony owns the IP for Driveclub and their other former works along with the engine. It's not yet specified what their new project(s) will be but I'm going to wager a guess that it will inv...
