Bethesda Celebrates 25 Years of Elder Scrolls with a Morrowind Giveaway


Bethesda is celebrating 25 years of The Elder Scrolls today. On this day back in 1994, Bethesda released the first Elder Scrolls title called The Elder Scrolls: Arena for DOS. And while it's not that easy to play the original Elder Scrolls on modern machines, you should still be able to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

It's probably a good thing that FOR TODAY ONLY (March 25, 2019), you can get a free copy of Morrowind to keep forever and ever for the life of the Bethesda.net Launcher. Here is how you can snag your free copy of Morrowind, plus some other freebies. Do...
 

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Announced, Pre-orders Available Now


After multiple weeks and a few months of teases, including a long running ARG surrounding a dating app called Tinder, we now have an official announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Paradox Interactive made the big reveal just moments ago via a GDC party. The party was "supposed" to be for a new Tinder reveal but thanks to some unintentionally cheesy live-action role playing, it turned out to be a big reveal for Bloodlines 2.

This is a direct sequel to the previous title that came out back in 2004 on the very same day that Half-Life 2 was released....

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...
 

Nintendo Embraces Indie - Cuphead, Darkwood, a Dancing Zelda, and More Revealed Today for Switch

Some of the highlights in today's announcement include Cuphead from Studio MDHR. This one will be out on April 18. In addition, Cadence of Hyrule - Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda was also announced today.

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...

  • Rockstar Investigating Reports of Low Framerate Following Latest GTA Online Update

    Following the release of the Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2 for GTA Online, many users reported lower than usual framerates. Many speculated that Rockstar had implemented a system to combat modders and cheaters in the latest update, and as a result the performance had been adversely affected. Some tests found that even unmodded, the new system was causing a negative impact to performance. At no point has Rockstar officially remarked about any new anti-cheat or anti-mod system being implemented. Rockstar's official response, however, is that they are aware of the performance issues people are having and are investigating into it. ...

    Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Coming in August

    Five Nights at Freddy's 4 was originally slated to be released this Halloween. Apparently, the allure of something was too strong for creator Scott Cawthon since he has now pushed the release date up to August 8. Yes, the fourth chapter in the series will be released exactly one year after the first game was released. Cawthon did note that there will be a "free update with extra content" released on Halloween in order to "keep the Halloween date special." The announcement came from a variety of YouTube streamers that Cawthon privately asked to reveal the news. This is, unfortunately, one such video of the reveal. ...
