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...

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...

  • Mobile Racing Title Riptide GP2 Coming to Xbox One with Six Player Local Multiplayer

    Dan Hsu snapped a picture of Riptide GP2 coming to the Xbox One. According to his Tweeted photo, the development team behind the game is looking to incorporate six person local multiplayer and have it run at 60 frames per second.

    A six-player split screen racing game for Xbox One! Ran smoothly. Devs shooting for 60 frames per second for each.
    The game began its life on mobile platforms, including iOS and Android, so it should be no surprise that this game is capable of running at that framerate with that many players on a non-mobile platform. It was recently also released on PC. Riptide GP2 is deve...

    Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth Expansion Adding Two-Handed Ballistic Shield

    A DICE animator, Ryan Duffin, said (via Polygon) that the Dragon's Teeth expansion coming to Battlefield 4 will add a two-handed ballistic shield to player's loadouts.
    Initially, the team were hoping to include the ability to equip a ballistic shield in the game and shoot from behind it with a selection of handguns, according to senior animator Ryan Duffin. But after trying a number of approaches, the team realized that the best way to deliver the bullet-stopping piece of equipment to the game was to make it a two-handed, movable piece of cover.
    The expansion is said to focus on urban warfare, though not much else is known about the expansion pack. But ...
