Watch the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Announcement Trailer


At the end of February, the world was alerted to the fact that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) and EA would reveal a trailer for their new Star Wars title on this very day. It turns out, this scheduled event happened as planned.

Imagine that.

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,...

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

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,...

  • Xbox One Reportedly Costs $471 to Build

    Xbox One Reportedly Costs $471 to Build

    The Xbox One reportedly costs $471 to build, meaning Microsoft has just a $28 margin between the cost per unit and the price they're selling it for. As noted previously, the PlayStation 4 costs $381 to build, so what makes up the differences between the two machines?


    AllThingsD notes how the Kinect makes up at least $75 of the system's total cost. The most expensive component, however, is the AMD made chip that combines the CPU and GPU at a cost of $110. The PS4 chip costs only $100 in comparison. The Xbox One's DDR3 memory costs Microsoft just $60, which is $28 less than the GDDR5 memory in u...

  • Fallout 4 Possibly Teased in Survivor 2299 ARG

    Fallout 4 Possibly Teased in Survivor 2299 ARG

    I've been sitting on this one for a while since it wasn't very clear that this "Survivor 2299" thing was actually related to Fallout 4. There was a huge amount of speculation that it was and also some evidence showing that it might not be. However, as the days go on, more and more details are emerging that seem to indicate this is a legitimate ARG for an upcoming Fallout 4 reveal. Again, all of this is merely speculation at this point and may end up just being a huge joke on the Internet and fans of the Fallout series. When you first visit the site you are greeted with a countdown and some morse code. The morse code originally pointed to a date of December 11, 2013. ...
