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....
 

Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

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...

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...

    Rockstar's Dan Houser Clarifies "100-hour Week" Statement

    In a recent interview with Vulture, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser said that at times, the Red Dead Redemption 2 team were "working 100-hour weeks" on the game. This naturally caused quite a bit of an uproar across social media and a number of gaming sites. Rightfully so, I might add. "Crunch" as it's commonly referred to, sees employees going to extremes to hit particular milestones. These are common prior to a game shipping in order to meet launch deadlines. The industry hates it. Developers hate it. Consumers don't feel comfortable supporting studios that push it. And yet here we are. Crunch is still very much prevalent in the gaming industry and it serv...
