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...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

  • Hitman Developer IO Interactive is Opening Second Studio

    Hitman Developer IO Interactive is Opening Second Studio


    Hitman 2 developer IO Interactive is opening a second studio that will allow the developer to focus on Hitman and new franchises.

    Earlier today, IO Interactive announced that they are opening a new studio in Malmö, Sweden. This new studio will help the main studio with ongoing development of the Hitman series, including Hitman 2. It will also allow the studio the freedom to work on new franchises for the future. That's not too shabby for a development studio that was let go from Square Enix only two years back in 2017. IO Interactive retained the rights to the Hitman IP. Since then, IO Interactive developed and released ...

  • A Bunch of Sword Art Online News and Something About VRMMORPG

    A Bunch of Sword Art Online News and Something About VRMMORPG


    There was just no way I would have been able to fit everything that there is to talk about with this one if I wasn't being a bit cheeky with the headline. Bandai Namco has passed along word to us today that Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization - Deluxe Edition is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Spring.

    In addition to that, the very same email says that both Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet - Dissonance of the Nexus Expansion and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet - Complete Edition will be released digitally for the PC via Steam, the PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 18,...

  • Black Desert Online's Battle Royale Mode Enters Early Access Today

    Black Desert Online's Battle Royale Mode Enters Early Access Today


    The new battle royale mode for Black Desert Online entered into early access today. After today's regular maintenance period, players of the popular MMORPG will get their first taste of the Shadow Arena. Access is granted to everyone that owns the game and those that are making use of the game's 7-day free trial.

    The tests will be set at specific times and will have limited capacity. You're apparently supposed to check out the Black Desert Online site and associated social media channels for when those play times will take place because they didn't inform us about them in...

  • 'Obey Me' Brings a Holy War to Consoles and PC Later this Year

    'Obey Me' Brings a Holy War to Consoles and PC Later this Year

    Blowfish Studios and Error 404 Game Studios are working on Obey Me, a new "cooperative holypunk brawler" that is targeting a Q3 2019 release for PS4, XB1, Switch, and PC.

    Obey Me dives into the notion that angels and demons are waging an ongoing war that humans can't see. And just like with other similar stories, the fate of all mankind hangs in the balance. This story is actually expanded upon by a series of graphic novels from Dynamite Comics. It features work from Marvel vet Ben Herrera (X-Men and Spider-Man covers). The first issue will be released in March with five...

  • Unity Changes Terms Once More, Commits to 'Being an Open Platform'

    Unity Changes Terms Once More, Commits to 'Being an Open Platform'


    Unity has had a real interesting seven days. Last week, SpatialOS from developer Improbable was apparently barred from being used within Unity development. SpatialOS is a robust tool that many Unity developers use to add multiplayer to their games. For a time, Unity's new Terms, which went live in early December but were only clarified to Improbable last week, actually affected games that were already released. This led to some quick back and forths between Improbable and Unity through their respective sites. It all seemed to quiet down when Improbable and Epic Games formed a joint $25...

  • EA Cancels Yet Another Star Wars Game (Update)

    EA Cancels Yet Another Star Wars Game (Update)


    A headline like "EA Cancels Another Star Wars Game" feels like they're a dime a dozen these days. I think EA may have cancelled as many Star Wars games as they have closed studios at this point. Here we are again and here EA is with another cancelled EA game on their hands. This time, the development studio has decided to cancel its open-world Star Wars game that EA Vancouver had been working on. Prior to EA Vancouver working on this title, it was in development from Visceral Games. Of course, EA shut down Visceral Games back in 2017. In fact, when Visceral was working on the game it wasn't an open-world title but rather a more linear action-adventure game that was being directed by...

  • The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3 'Broken Toys' Out Now

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3 'Broken Toys' Out Now


    The third episode for The Walking Dead: The Final Season is now available to download and play via the Epic Games Store (affiliate link, non-affiliate link), the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This is, of course, all made possible by the efforts and funding from Skybound Games and Epic Games.



    The fourth episode for The Walking Dead: The FInal Season will be released on March 26, 2019.

    I think we already put up the launch trailer about a week ago, but it probably doesn't hurt to put it up again. And no, I have absolutely no idea if these last two episodes will appear on any other digital distribution platform for the PC. I would sugg...

    New World War Z Screenshots


    Saber Interactive delivered a handful of new screenshots today for their upcoming co-op focused and very zombie filled game, World War Z. This four-player co-op title is based off of the movie of the same name and is slated to arrive later this year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to the screenshots, seen below, you can get a look at some new key art, seen above.

    Tera Adds New PvP Battleground and Gear Sets in 'Shore Hold' Update


    The PC release of TERA has some new PvP focused content available today. The latest "Shore Hold" update adds in a new PvP Battleground in addition to some new gear sets for their action leaning MMORPG.

    This new battleground is a 7v7 affair that they're appropriately calling Shore Hold. The battleground includes "shorter resurrection times, buff-generating mana stones, and other exciting features." There are also not one but three new gear sets for PvP players to earn and wear. In addition, a PvE Training Ground area was added with a DPS meter that allows...

  • Elder Scrolls Online Announces Elsweyr Expansion and 'Season of the Dragon' Storyline


    It looks like the cat is out of the bag when it comes to the next year for content coming to The Elder Scrolls Online. Earlier today, the Elsweyr expansion was announced alongside the "Season of the Dragon" which promises to continue throughout the year.

    I was provided with the highlights from Bethesda, so let's first take a look at those.



    That's a fairly succinct list, but let's dive in a bit deeper into Elsweyr. Elsweyr is slated to launch on the PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 4. You are already able to pre-order the game...
