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.

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....

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Scorestreaks and Weapon Loadouts Revealed at Gamescom

    It looks like some fans got a bit of hands on time with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 at Gamescom 2015 this week. As a result, we're getting our first look at the perks, weapons, weapon loadouts, and the scorestreaks that you will be able to utilize in the game.

    Uplink Returning in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

    New fan favorite competitive game type, Uplink, will be making its return in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

    This mode, introduced in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, blends together typical FPS action with some high flying hoops action.
    The objective is to bring a satellite drone, which is placed in the middle of the map, to the enemy uplink station. Each team can score one point if the drone is thrown in or two points if the player enters the uplink station with the drone. Teams switch sides at half-time once the timer runs out or if one team scores 10 points. Teams must score 20 points to win the game.
    It's ki...

  • New Competitive Call of Duty Info - PS4, Live Event Viewer, Item Ban System, and More

    Earlier, Treyarch revealed some tasty new details on what eSports fanatics will get to sink their teeth into when Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is released.

    First and foremost is news that the competitive Call of Duty scene is making the switch to the PlayStation 4. This much should have been obvious given how the timed exclusivity deals switched from Microsoft to Sony this year. This is the first time PlayStation will be the focus of Call of Duty eSports since the original Black Ops. Next, there will be a special Live Event Viewer built directly into the game. This feature allows fans to easily watch their favorite competitive matches with the to...

    The destiny of the stars is set in motion 15 years before the events of FINAL FANTASY XV. As the shadow of turmoil is cast over the land, there is hope on the horizon as an unbreakable bond is forged between a father and son, and the light of a new dawn rises on a hero.
    Today's live stream for the game suggested that the game still isn't anywhere near completion. Some estimates place the total completion at just 65%, despite the very lengthy development that this game has undergone. Right now, the game also seems to la...
