This is an original game set in the Star Wars universe and looks to take place after Order 66 was issued. This places the game set shortly...
 

New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

  • Dota 2 The International 4 - Day 2 Recap

    Dota 2 The International 4 - Day 2 Recap

    The second day of playoff rounds for The International 4 concluded and is in the books. The big winner on the day if ViCi, which sits at a 7-1 record. The worst performer was Arrow, which ended up the day at 2-8. Valve notes that if ViCi loses the rest of their playoff matches, they'll end up at 7-8. On the flip side, if Arrow wins the rest of their matches, they will also be 7-8. Is that record good enough to move on? It very well could be as all it takes is being in the top two teams to move on to the main event or being in the top 8 to move on to phase three of the playoffs and continue the dream of moving on to the main event...

    Cliff Bleszinski took to Reddit yesterday to answer some questions on his new company, Boss Key Productions, and his new game, currently codenamed BlueStreak. Some of the topics hit upon were whether or not the game would be pay-to-win, how it would handle microtransactions, why he went with Nexon as the publisher and much more.

    Here are just a few snippets.
    Microtransaction plans? "The #1 question that comes up in Free to Play every time. Honest answer: I'm not sure, and it's entirely too easy to tell or make the call. Free to Play is one of those genres that means something entirely different depending on the game. For every model that feels like Las Vegas methods (Zynga, Candy Crush) there's fo
