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...

    Three New Warlords of Draenor Videos Are Here

    Alright, I guess I lied. There isn't just one new trailer for Warlods of Draenor, the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, but three new videos.

    Two of the videos are behind the scenes type stuff that show off new faction zones and how the world (of Warcraft) was remade (again). The third video is the actual announcement trailer, which you see above.



    Across Draenor's savage jungles and battle-scarred plains, Azeroth's heroes will engage in a mythic conflict involving mystical draenei champions and mighty orc clans, and cross axes with the likes of Grommash Hellscream, Blackhand, and Ner'zhul

    Activision Admits Call of Duty: Ghosts Sold Less than Black Ops 2 at Launch

    Despite Activision proudly proclaiming that Call of Duty: Ghosts shipped more than $1 billion worth of product to retail outlets, they admitted that they have not actually sold that amount. In fact, they really haven't even come close to that figure.

    Activision's CFO Dennis Durkin told investors that Ghosts has not even hit Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sales figures yet. They're naturally blaming it on the upcoming release of the new consoles and digital distribution... somehow. Really? Alright...
    "Today, we announced that we had shipped into retail more than $1bn of Call of Duty: Ghosts globally on day one based on an average wholesale price. As

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update Introduces Fake C4 Planting (November 6, 2013)

    An update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released tonight. Among the many changes, changes have been made to the way the C4 is planted in maps. It now features an audible tune that everyone can hear but only the player planting will be able to hear the code typing sounds. This allows for the possibility of fake planting, just as CTs can fake diffuse.

    There are more changes to the sound design, fixes to the maps, UI, and more.

    Changelog for CS:GO for November 6, 2013

    GAMEPLAY - Changed C4 planting sounds based on pro feedback. When planting the bomb, it plays an initialization sound that everyone can hear, but ONLY the player planting will hear the code typing sounds. This makes fake planting possible (similar to fake diffusing as a CT). - All items now follow the same pick up sound rules (grenades,

  • Battlefield 4 on Xbox One Utilizes Kinect for Leaning, Peeking, and Voice Commands

    The Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 will feature a few unique gameplay features courtesy of Kinect. Most notably, it will make use of head-tracking to allow you to lean out and peak simply by moving your head while playing. This removes the problem of having to strafe out from behind cover, which completely exposes your body to attack. Leaning out from a corner will now only expose half of your body, which obviously offers a tactical advantage for those making use of the technology. Beyond that, another game changer will be the implementation of voice commands. Use your own voice to call for a medic, re...
