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....

    Daedalic Acquires Publishing Rights to 200 Player Survival Game 'CryoFall'


    It was revealed today that Daedalic Entertainment has picked up the publishing rights to AtomicTorch Studio's upcoming multiplayer survival RPG CryoFall (volume warning). The game will allow up to 200 players to fight for survival in an open-world environment. Similar to games like Ark players will have to deal with the dangers of the wilderness as they engage in forming economies, crafting goods, providing services, farming with "complex growth simulations," crafting maps, and more. In fact, the game places a much larger focus on fighting logistics' issues than it does on fighting...

  • Someday You'll Return Offers Up New Story Focused Trailer

    Someday You'll Return Offers Up New Story Focused Trailer


    Someday You'll Return is a "narrative-driven psychological horror" game that places you in the shoes of Daniel. Daniel's daughter, Stela, is a runaway and you're trying to find her. In the process, you will take Daniel through places that he "swore never to return to."

    One such place is the Moravian forests and apparently some bad stuff went down in Daniel's past in this location. This new trailer, entitled "Remembrance" shows how Daniel will have to deal with these events from his past.

    Someday You'll Return is being developed by...

  • Weedcraft Inc Blazes Trail Towards April 11 Release

    Weedcraft Inc Blazes Trail Towards April 11 Release

    Devolver Digital and Vile Monarch announced the release date for their "cannabis tycoon" game today that is appropriately called Weedcraft Inc. The release date is none other than April... 11th. Alright, I get it. I suppose they wanted the game out ahead of the 20th so that people can get their videos in order ahead of time. It just makes sense!

    As the game's title implies, Weedcraft Inc is about the in's and out's of running a business that specializes in the production and sale of cannabis. It's priced at $19.99, is coming exclusively to Steam, and actually offers up a...

  • Tekken World Tour 2019 Announced

    Tekken World Tour 2019 Announced


    The Tekken World Tour 2019 was officially announced today. This new esports tournament series returns thanks to a partnership between Bandai Namco and Twitch. As you may safely assume, Twitch will be the go-to location to watch all of the latest Tekken 7 action. New this year for the World Tour is "more action" along with new locations, returning favorites (whatever that means), and "innovative tournament categories enabling more players to earn Tekken World Tour Ranking Points."

    This is all on top of a prize pool that totals over $185,500 (USD). The World Tour Finals will have a $100,000 baseline prize purse for the best players. All of this begins on April 20, 2019 in France. ...

  • Microsoft Reveals World of Warcraft Now Runs on DirectX 12 on Windows 7

    Microsoft Reveals World of Warcraft Now Runs on DirectX 12 on Windows 7


    I really have no idea why Microsoft is promoting this news, yet here we are. A new MSDN blog post was put up today by Jianye Lu, program manager at Microsoft, that talks about how World of Warcraft is a DirectX 12 game running on Windows 7.

    There are a lot of things simultaneously incredibly weird and incredibly interesting about this news. It marks the first major title to use DirectX 12 on Windows 7. That's pretty neat. However, DirectX 12 has largely been a Windows 10 exclusive API. It's actually been a pretty big reason behind pushing some people to upgrade to Windows...

  • Gearbox Teases Some Borderlands Reveal for PAX East 2019

    Gearbox Teases Some Borderlands Reveal for PAX East 2019


    Late in February, Gearbox announced that they will have a presence at PAX East 2019. Today, the development studio put an exclamation point on that announcement by teasing something that looks a hell of a lot like the Borderlands art style.

    The tweet was nothing more than the ubiquitous eyes emoji 👀 along with a stylized road sign saying "March 28" and "Boston, MA" in the Borderlands style. I'm assuming this is going to be Gearbox's big Borderlands 3 reveal. It's either that or they are just being massive jerks and there won't be anything Borderlands related...

  • Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video

    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...
