  • 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....

    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 aid in travel.

  • Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers

    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 after the end of the event,...

    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 Games formed a joint $25...

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3 'Broken Toys' Out Now


    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. This is, of course, all made possible by the efforts and funding from Skybound Games and Epic Games.



    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 have absolutely no idea if these last two episodes will appear on any other digital distribution platform for the PC. I would sugg...

    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 Unity developed games. In...

    Tencent Acquires 36% Ownership in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Developer Fatshark


    Fatshark, the development studio behind Warhammer: Vermintide 2 now has a new investor and it's none other than Tencent. That's right, the very same Tencent that seems to have their investment filled hands in what feels like everything, including Epic Games (40%) and Ubisoft (5%). They also have a majority ownership of Riot Games and Supercell. Of course, this is all just the tip of the iceberg for the tech giant.

    According to the Swedish website DI Digital, Tencent paid around $56 million (SEK 500 million) in exchange for a 36% ownership stake in Fatshark. This places Tencent...

    The Division 2 Skipping Steam in Favor of Epic Games Store


    Ubisoft has made the decision to skip Steam for The Division 2, instead opting to sell it on the Epic Games Store. It won't be fully exclusive to the Epic Games Store on the PC as Ubisoft will also sell the game through their own storefront and game client, Uplay.

    A representative for Ubisoft says that they "have no plans currently on releasing Tom Clancy's The Division 2 on Steam." This move comes after The Division 2 was up on the Steam storefront for months prior.

    This won't be the only title from Ubisoft to be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Ubisoft...

    Epic Games Reportedly Launching Mobile App Store Next


    First, Epic came for Steam on the PC front. They threw piles of cash at studios to put their games on the Epic Games Store for a period of exclusivity that lasts at least one year or more. Now, Epic may be going after that sweet, sweet mobile industry by launching their own mobile games store.

    This is according to a new report from MarketWatch.



    MarketWatch goes on to say that Epic will once again allow devs to keep 88% of earned revenues. This is in comparison to the 70% that Apple and Google allow for.

    Will this store be curated? Will...

    Discord Store Moves to Give Developers 90% of Sales Revenue

    In the new war on crappy revenue splits, Discord announced today that they are going to allow all developers to self-publish their games. Not only that, but they're going to give developers a 90% revenue share for games sold through the Discord Store. That leaves just the remaining 10% for Discord to cover operating costs.

    But wait, it gets even better.

    Discord says that they may even end up lowering that 10% to a smaller amount by finding ways to optimize their technology and making things more efficient.
    Earlier this year though, we noticed a change happening in the game industry. We talked to a lot of developers, and many of them feel

  • Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Try to stick with me on this one. Ashen was released on December 7, 2018 for the Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store. It is a console timed exclusive, which means it "should" hit other consoles like the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future. It "may" also be a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store, which means it will come to other digital retailers on the PC at some point.

    Why are we not sure? Because every publisher and developer are being cheeky as hell when it comes to this whole "exclusive" thing with the newly launched Epic Games Store. See, Epic tossed around a lot of money to get "exclusive" releases on their platform. Ashen is one of those games despite it being promoted on Steam, with its own Steam Store page,...

    Epic Confirms Unreal Tournament Development is Dead

    In a reveal that should surprise nobody, Epic Games confirmed that they have halted development on Unreal Tournament. In 2014, a new Unreal Tournament was announced. Development was supposed to be this huge collaborative effort between a small team at Epic, Unreal Engine 4 devs, and the public.

    We really haven't heard much about the game for literally years now. It's out there. It's playable. There isn't much content, but it existed in a state that you could, realistically, play some matches in it. It's also like, super dead. Epic's CEO Tim Sweeney told PCGamer as such.

  • Fortnite's Fortnitemares 2018 Event Begins After Buggy Start

    Fortnite's Fortnitemares 2018 Event Begins After Buggy Start

    Earlier today, the Fortnitemares event for Fortnite officially kicked off. It then immediately got pulled for a little while. Apparently, today's update had some issues with a degradation in performance, disconnects, the inability to complete certain challenges, and server hitches.

    Big yikes.

    Fortunately, Epic Games worked quickly to iron out these issues and re-released the Fortnitemares event to the masses. Fortnitemares was released alongside the Fortnite 6.20 update, which brings about the usual slew of improvements, changes, and new content. Fortunately, the Fortnitemares event includes new content for both the Battle Royale mode and the Save the World campaign. Just a reminder here that free-to-pla...
