  • Fortnite Chapter 2 Offers Big Changes for Battle Royale and Very Little for Save the World

    Black hole sun, won't you come...

    Thousands of people watched a mysterious black hole where Fortnite once stood. Literally. It was the top watched "game" on Twitch the past few days and it was literally nothing but a glorified screensaver. You could not play Fortnite at all. There was no Battle Royale. There was no Save the World. There was nothing. There were some random numbers at times, but who really cares.

    All of that nothingness has led to today's launch of Fortnite Chapter 2. This is still a free download for the PlayStation...

    Epic Responds to Complaints About Fortnite Cross-Platform Play

    Developer will continue with their plans despite fan complaints.

    Cross-platform play seems to be all the rage these days and it's only going to keep gaining support as time goes on. However, it seems as though some fans of the still popular battle royale game, Fortnite, aren't too keen on the idea.

    A recent change to the game introduced skill-based matchmaking. This is a system that tries to put players of similar skill together in the same match. Players noticed that with this new system they were being pitted against players across different...

    Epic Games Store Update Brings Cloud Saves to More Games

    Baby steps.

    Epic staff must've been crunching extra hard these past few weeks, because some much needed functionality has finally come to the Epic Games Store. Today, the company announced that they have added Cloud Save support for even more games. There was a small trial for Cloud Saves tested out a little while back, but more titles are now supported.

    Cloud Saves aren't enabled for every game, but 17 games now have Cloud Save functionality. These 17 games do not include any of the Ubisoft games because those Cloud Saves are handled via Uplay....

  • Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

    Then quickly announces this will happen again.

    If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed...

    Epic Buys Rocket League Studio


    Psyonix, the studio behind one of 2015's biggest games, Rocket League, was just purchased by Epic Games. The acquisition is pretty much set in wet cement at this point, with the final crossing of the t's coming later this Spring.

    Yes, this also means that Rocket League is leaving Steam and is now an Epic Games Store exclusive. Those are the long term plans. In the short term, nothing much will change at all. Psyonix gave a rundown of what they say will happen with the game in the coming months.



    So, it will be on Steam still...

    Employees at Riot Games Threaten Walkout


    It's been a real wild ride for Riot Games, the studio responsible for creating League of Legends. Sadly, this seems to be one ride that is far from over. Employees are now considering a walkout after Riot Games took steps to prevent employees from taking legal action against the company.

    Riot Games had moved to prevent further lawsuits against the company after multiple lawsuits were filed following Kotaku's recent investigation into the studio's sexist culture. At least two separate sources told Waypoint that employees are talking about walking out...

  • 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...

    Fortnite Season 8 Promotes Piracy


    The eighth season of content for Fortnite went live earlier today. Get your sails ready, your peg leg waxed up, and your hook sharpened because Fortnite Season 8 is all about the pirates life for me.

    But wait, there's more! Who is a pirate's greatest nemesis? If you answered scurvy, you'd be wrong! It's ninjas! Unlike some ninjas, these probably don't have blue hair. I guess Epic is trying to pull back in that Sea of Thieves crowd on Twitch? There's also some stuff about a giant volcano, a freed Prisoner, treasure, cannons, and Volcanic Vents that...

    Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers


    This past weekend, a little Fortnite themed event was held in Norwich. The event, called Fortnite Live, charged event-goers around $20 (USD) to enter the event that included a whopping four go-karts, a climbing wall, and areas to play Fortnite.

    From multiple accounts, the event was a rather large disaster. The various activities were severely lacking. People had to wait in line in the cold just to get in. In total, around 2,800 people attended the event in which they were mainly charged a lofty fee just to play Fortnite, a free-to-play game. Shortly...

    Unity Changes Terms Once More, Commits to 'Being an Open Platform'


    Unity has had a real interesting seven days. Last week, SpatialOS from developer Improbable was apparently barred from being used within Unity development. SpatialOS is a robust tool that many Unity developers use to add multiplayer to their games. For a time, Unity's new Terms, which went live in early December but were only clarified to Improbable last week, actually affected games that were already released. This led to some quick back and forths between Improbable and Unity through their respective sites. It all seemed to quiet down when Improbable and Epic...

    The third episode for The Walking Dead: The Final Season is now available to download and play via the Epic Games Store (affiliate link, non-affiliate link), the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    The fourth episode for The Walking Dead: The FInal Season will be released on March 26, 2019.

    I think we already put up the launch trailer about a week ago, but it probably doesn't hurt to put it up again. And no, I ha...

    Epic and Improbable Create $25 Million Fund to Move Devs Away from Unity


    It's been a real rollercoaster of a day for those using the Unity game engine. First, Unity cut off all future support for the online multiplayer platform called SpatialOS. Unity updated their terms of service back on December 4, 2018, and only clarified these changes to the SpatialOS development team at Improbable on January 10, 2019. These changes specifically prevent services like SpatialOS from working with Unity.

    SpatialOS is a widely used development toolkit allowed developers to more easily integrate online multiplayer experiences into their...
