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...
 

Stela is a New 'Cinematic Platformer' from SkyBox Labs


SkyBox Labs, a development studio that is helping to co-develop Halo Infinite with 343 Industries, just announced a new title today. Their new game is called Stela and it's being billed as a "cinematic platformer." It's looking for a 2019 release on the Xbox One and PC and will make its debut at GDC 2019 as part of Microsoft's ID@Xbox Developer Showcase.

Players will have to overcome challenges and alter the terrain in order to solve puzzles and make their way past various enemies. The first trailer for the game was shown off today. More information will eventually...
 

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...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Special Editions Announced, Season Pass Confirmed

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Special Editions Announced, Season Pass Confirmed

    While Battlefield V is going the route of ditching the Premium Pass nonsense, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is going full steam ahead with another Season Pass. As you may already expect, it includes more multiplayer maps and Zombies stuff.

    Well, you can't very well add in any single player DLC when the game doesn't have any single player to begin with. Cue the tapping head meme image here.

    Let's take a look at the planned DLC after we take a look at the various editions that are being sold.

  • Starfield Announced as Next-Gen Title

    Starfield Announced as Next-Gen Title

    Years after speculation and rumor, Bethesda finally confirmed tonight that Starfield is indeed a real game that is really coming from them. Starfield is the first new IP from Bethesda in 25 years.

    I wouldn't have believed that fact myself if it didn't come straight from Bethesda themselves.

    Much like The Elder Scrolls VI, we know next to nothing about Starfield. All that we have heard is that it's a "next-gen" game. That sure sounds like it won't be coming out for a very long time. Just think though, The Elder Scrolls VI is supposedly coming out after this does. Yeah, expect some news about these games...

  • The Elder Scrolls VI Announced

    The Elder Scrolls VI Announced

    Oh yeah, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls VI tonight.

    There are no details on this game. None. It's literally still in pre-production. In fact, I wouldn't expect to see anything about this game for at least another year if not more. Bethesda just kind of announced it now so that people would stop asking them about it.

    Of course, now people are going to whine that they haven't seen anything about the game for months or potentially years. Bethesda's Todd Howard said that The Elder Scrolls VI will be coming after the just announced Starfield. As Starfield is being called a "next-gen" title, I wouldn't...

  • The Elder Scrolls: Blades Announced - Mobile First Starting in Fall then Coming to Other Platforms Later

    It used to be a joke that Bethesda would announce a new Elder Scrolls game for mobile devices before they announced a new one for consoles and PC. Today, that joke is no more because it's a reality.

    The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a mobile first Elder Scrolls title that will hit iOS and Android devices starting this Fall. Following that, it will be released on other platforms though dates have not yet been announced. You can pre-register right now to be informed the moment the game is released for your mobile platform of choice.
