    Star Wars Jedi: Survival Seemingly Given March 2023 Release Date

    An official announcement is expected at The Game Awards.

    The Steam listing for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been updated with a March 15, 2023 release date. Prior to this recent change, the game was merely expected to be out at some point in 2023.

    Today marked the release of Chapter 4 for the battle royale portion of Fortnite. Today also includes a big update to the game's engine which brings Fortnite up to Unreal Engine version 5.1.

    With this rather significant engine bump comes a lot of new visual features and changes. Epic Games outlined these...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
