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...

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...

  • World War Z Release Date Set for April 16

    World War Z Release Date Set for April 16


    We've been seeing a lot of media these past few months for the upcoming World War Z from Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive. The problem was, we didn't really have any sort of release date outside of a vague "2019" window.

    Today, we were finally given a release date. That date is April 16, 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store. Pre-orders are now open for your platform of choice. Plus, all pre-orders will get a "free" Lobo Weapon Pack. This in-game loot drop includes golden skins for three weapons: ARK-103 assault...

    Apex Legends Surpasses 25 Million Players


    It was only four days ago now that we told you about how Apex Legends hit the 10 million player count. It was at that time that we also learned the game had over one million concurrent players, which is another huge milestone.

    Today, EA and Respawn Entertainment announced that Apex Legends has surpasses 25 million players. Not only that, but Vince Zampella revealed that the game has "well over 2 million" concurrent players.

  • Battlefield 5 Adds Combined Arms Co-op, Balancing, and More in Tomorrow's Update


    A patch that is tentatively slated to be released tomorrow, February 12, will add in some new content and features for Battlefield 5 players. Some of these new features include a four-player co-op game mode called Combined Arms. The update will also add in DLSS support and better RTX support for those using supported cards.

    DLSS is a new technology that, in simple terms, makes the game look better and perform better through machine learning. It's mainly useful for resolutions at 4K or better and should, in theory, constantly result in better performance and near identical...

  • Paradox Potentially Teasing New Vampire: The Masquerade Game via Dating App ARG


    This one is coming at you hot and fast from PC Gamer. A new report from the digital magazine suggests that Paradox Interactive is possibly teasing a new Vampire: The Masquerade game via a fake dating app.

    The app is called Tender and it's claim to fame is a "soulmate algorithm." You can even sign into it using your existing Paradox account. And I wouldn't worry too much about actually getting matched with someone. Even their announcement video seems to indicate that things are not as they seem with Tender.

    When you first sign into the app, it asks for...

  • Metro Exodus 'Artyom's Nightmare' Trailer

    Metro Exodus 'Artyom's Nightmare' Trailer


    Look, I cannot recall if I already posted this trailer or not. Chances are, I probably missed this last week when it actually came out. However, we're in the here and now and I can't just go and alter history, so I'm posting it for you today. This here is a new trailer for Metro Exodus. If you already watched it, then it's obviously not new, but do spare me the semantics.

    4A Games and Deep Silver call this one "Artyom's Nightmare" and it is a CGI animated short. It serves as a "dream-like prologue to the events of Metro Exodus."

    The game itself...

  • Jump Force Launch Week Begins with New Trailer

    Jump Force Launch Week Begins with New Trailer


    The last I checked, there have been roughly 7 million videos released so far for Jump Force. My count may be off by a little bit. However, the videos keep on coming with the launch of the game rapidly approaching.

    Today, we get a new trailer for the game. It doesn't show off any one character in particular. Instead, it highlights "the diverse roster of iconic manga heroes and villains as they go toe-to-toe against each other for the fate of our world and theirs."

    Jump FOrce is slated to arrive on February 15 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via...
