Ubisoft Confirms Return to Steam with Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Ubisoft to return to Steam's "unrealistic" distribution model.

Ubisoft is returning to Steam after they took their ball and went home about two years ago. In 2019, Ubisoft decided to stop releasing their games through Steam, instead opting to sell their PC releases exclusively through Ubisoft Connect (formerly Uplay) and the Epic Games Store. In the same year, Ubisoft vice president for partnerships and revenues, Chris Early, said that Steam's distribution model was "unrealistic."...
 

Microsoft Pauses Windows 11 22H2 Rollout Due to Game Stutters

The 22H2 update may result in "lower than expected performance" or stuttering in games.

In early October, Microsoft publicly released the 22H2 update for Windows 11. This update brought several new features to the operating system, the return of several features common to Windows that were common in older versions, and several bug fixes. Unfortunately for those that play video games, which is probably you if you're reading this, it also introduced several performance issues....

    Portal with RTX Releases December 8, System Requirements Revealed

    Nvidia offers up another look at Portal with ray tracing ahead of its release.

    December 8 is the release date set for Portal with RTX, a free DLC update to those that own the original Portal that will add full ray tracing capabilities and enhanced visuals. This release will also add DLSS 3 support to the game, though it is unclear if DLSS will be usable in the non-ray traced version of the game.

    Though free to everyone that owns Portal, Portal with RTX will only be realistically...

  • Is Ubisoft Planning a Return to Steam?

    Is Ubisoft Planning a Return to Steam?

    Recent behind the scenes changes suggest this may be a possibility.

    In 2019, the final Ubisoft game on Steam was released. That game was Trials Rising. Since then, if you were a PC owner and a fan of Ubisoft's output, you were only able to purchase their titles from their first-party Ubisoft Connect or through everyone's favorite storefront, the Epic Games Store. As the months turned to years, it seemed like Ubisoft's return to Steam just wasn't going to happen.

    This week,...

    Valve is offering Steam desktop users a chance to check out the work-in-progress redesign of their Big Picture mode for Steam. This new look will be closer in design to what is currently available on the Steam Deck.

    Big Changes Just Hit the Steam Mobile App

    The changes are more than just a new coat of paint.

    Valve just passed along word that they have completely revamped the Steam Mobile App. Though it sports a new design and some new features, Valve also says that it's built using a new framework. The framework stuff is more of the "behind the scenes" aspect to all of this, but a new and updated framework should mean the app is more responsive for users.

    Of the new features added is the ability to scan a QR code...

    Updates Released for Steam Client and Team Fortress 2

    Valve pushed out updates today for Steam and Team Fortress 2.

    We have two whole updates to share with you today courtesy of Valve. The first is word of a new Steam client update. The second is an update that was released today for Team Fortress 2. It's like a NewsBits, but smaller and potentially way less interesting.

    In addition to today's Team Fortress 2 update, there was an update released just yesterday that kicked off the Scream Fortress XIV event, bringing some Halloween scares and items to the game. ...

  • New Rumor Suggests Half-Life: Alyx is Coming to PlayStation VR2

    New Rumor Suggests Half-Life: Alyx is Coming to PlayStation VR2

    This is just a rumor from one source, so make of it what you will.

    According to a report from The Leak, Half-Life: Alyx will be coming to PlayStation VR2. The Leak, citing an anonymous source, claims that Sony was busy negotiating with Valve about bringing Half-Life: Alyx over to PSVR 2 for quite some time before an agreement was reached.

    They go on to say that Sony bought the publishing rights to Half-Life: Alyx for PlayStation VR2. While it seems odd that Valve wouldn't...

  • Portal with RTX Announced

    Portal with RTX Announced

    It's Portal but now with ray-traced cake.

    Nvidia's GTC keynote earlier today contained news about the new (and very expensive) 40-series of RTX cards. In addition, the company also announced Portal with RTX. As you can probably assume from its name, this is an RTX-enhanced version of the classic puzzle game from Valve.

    Portal with RTX includes updated visuals along with real-time ray tracing. It seems as though a bulk of the grunt work on Portal with RTX is being handled...

    by Shawn Zipay
    Let's focus on the free games being offered on both services.

    For several years now, both Sony and Microsoft have offered their console subscribers some "free" monthly games as part of their subscription services. Sony has had PlayStation Plus and Microsoft has had Games with Gold as part of Xbox Live Gold. Each service typically gives out roughly two to four titles every month that you are free to keep so long as you were subscribed when they were offered.
