DICE Shares What They Learned from the Battlefield 2042 Beta

Specialists are still here to stay though.

DICE has a new and rather lengthy write-up about what they learned from the recent Battlefield 2042 beta that took place. First and foremost, the Specialists are here to stay. You may want to get used to them now because the "traditional" classes as you have come to know them from previous titles are no more.

DICE says that they "see Specialists as the next evolution of the classic Battlefield class system that will...
 

Call of Duty's New Anti-cheat has Apparently Leaked Online Just One Day After Being Announced

It's already being reverse engineered by cheat makers.

Over the span of just three days, we had Activision issuing a threat against cheaters, the reveal of Ricochet, the new kernel-level anti-cheat coming to Call of Duty, and now today that anti-cheat has apparently already been leaked. Not only that, but Ricochet is apparently already being reverse engineered by "pay to cheat" (P2C) developers.

Ricochet as it is known was announced just yesterday for Call of...
 

Activision Blizzard Lawsuits Hit a Major Snag

There may be a conflict of interests that are muddying the waters.

Stick with me on this, because this is probably going to be a little confusing. At the end of September 2021, Activision Blizzard settled a lawsuit brought on by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for the lowly amount of $18 million (USD). This lawsuit would be used to "compensate and make amends" for employees impacted by the rampant sexual discrimination and harassment that has been...
 

Major Twitch Data Breach Leaves All Accounts Vulnerable, Exposes Streamer Revenues

Over 125GB of Twitch data has been leaked online.

An anonymous hacker has just leaked a 125GB torrent of hacked and stolen Twitch data on Wednesday, October 6. This is allegedly just the first part of a larger data breach. According to a report from VGC, the leak was done in an attempt to "foster more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space" since Twitch's "community is a disgusting toxic cesspool."

According to reports, the leaked...
 

Battlefield 2042 Beta Begins October 6

It's coming.

DICE and EA finally lifted the lid on information concerning the upcoming open beta for Battlefield 2042. It has been a long time coming and it's great to finally get some news about this. I know the fanbase has been getting a little, let's just say antsy, with each day that passed by where we did not hear anything.

In the latest Battlefield Briefing, the team announced that the Beta for Battlefield 2042 will run from October 6 through October 9. Specifically,...

  • RPG-themed Steam Digital Tabletop Sale is Now Underway

    RPG-themed Steam Digital Tabletop Sale is Now Underway

    Perfect for those that like tabletop games but also video games.

    Valve just launched their latest Steam Digital Tabletop Fest. The latest is focused on RPG games and runs from today, October 21st through to October 25 at 10AM (PT). This sale is perfect for those that like tabletop games but prefer that they come in video game format instead. It's an odd paradox, but it makes sense in a weird sort of way.

    I'm not going to pretend like I understand how you can have a tabletop...

    Valve Bans Steam Games that Feature NFTs and Crypto

    At least one developer is upset about this new move.

    Valve is no longer allowing games built using blockchain technology that "issue or allow exchange of cryptocurrencies or NFTs" to be sold or offered through Steam. This news was actually revealed on Twitter by the developer of one such NFT-based game.

    This new rule is listed on Valve's onboarding rules page for developers. It was first brought to light by the developer behind Age of Rust, SpacePirate Games....

  • Valve Teamed Up with AMD and Qualcomm to Create Faster Wi-Fi Technology

    Valve Teamed Up with AMD and Qualcomm to Create Faster Wi-Fi Technology

    The new tech is called Wi-Fi Dual Station and it's been designed for gamers.

    If you are at all serious about playing games competitively online, chances are you've been told that a wired Internet connection is the way to go. The main reason comes down to the increased latency and potential packet loss that comes with Wi-Fi connections. Now, thanks to the efforts of Valve, AMD, Qualcomm, and a few other companies, Wi-Fi might just be a very viable alternative.

    These companies...

    Valve Cancels Ticket Sales for The International 2021

    Blame the rising Covid rates for this one.

    This weekend, Valve announced that they are suspending sales of tickets for The International 2021 Dota 2 tournament. The reason, as cited in a new blog post, is due to the rising Covid rates in Romania.

    Back in July, Valve announced that The International 2021 would be held in Bucharest, Romania. This was the second venue announced for the tournament, with the first choice being Stockholm, Sweden. At the time, the Swedish Sports...

    Steam Next Fest October Edition is Live

    Seven days and hundreds of demos.

    It's October 1st, which means a few things. One, it's officially spooky season. Two, Christmas displays have been in stores for almost a month now. Three, it's the start of the big release season for video games (if you ignore early 2022). Four, it's the start of the latest Steam Next Fest.

    It's that last one that we'll be talking about today.

    That's right, the latest Steam Next Fest is officially underway. From now through...

    Valve Might Be Working on Standalone VR Headset

    Viable competition might be coming for the Oculus Quest.

    According to datamined information shared first by YouTuber SadlyItsBradley, Valve might be working on a standalone VR headset. This means that they are possibly working on a device that will allow you to play in VR without the need for wires or external tracking satellites.

    SadlyItsBradley noticed several references to something called "Deckard" in the latest update for SteamVR. He says that information...

    Operation Riptide Announced for CS:GO

    Sharks are SO en vogue this year.

    Despite Steam apparently being super mega down right now for a significant portion of us in North America, that didn't stop the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team from releasing a new Operation for players. Meet Operation: Riptide, the latest major push of seasonal content that brings new maps, an overhauled mission system, and "new ways to play your favorite game modes."

    This new Operation comes alongside a new title upd...

    A Decently Sized Team Fortress 2 Update is Now Available

    I guess there is a TF2 team at Valve after all.

    Valve just released a fairly chonky update today for Team Fortress 2. This update does not seem to add in any additional content to the game, but rather focuses on bug fixes and updating various pieces of content.

    Some of the major points in this update include a fix for an exploit that let players impersonate other Steam accounts, disabling player sprays by default, and some changes to the map cp_snakewater_final1.

    Fans are Remaking Team Fortress 2 in Source 2

    A group of modders are working together to update the game they love.

    Facepunch Studios is hard at work developing a spiritual Garry's Mod successor that they're calling s&box. The sandbox style game started life out as an Unreal Engine project but has since swapped to using Source 2, the engine developed by Valve that is currently in use in games like Dota 2 and Half-Life: Alyx.

    Thanks to the limited public availability of s&box to eager developers, Source 2 is...

  • Valve Clears Up '30 FPS Target' for Steam Deck

    Valve Clears Up '30 FPS Target' for Steam Deck

    30 FPS is the bare minimum accepted by Valve.

    In speaking with IGN, a Steam Deck designer Pierre-Loup Griffais, said that Valve has a target of "30Hz" for their output framerate with Steam Deck. He says that everything they (Valve) have tested have run "without issues" and have hit that 800p and 30Hz target really well.

    Obviously, some people took this to mean that the Steam Deck would only run games at a 30FPS cap. Some have even begun to doubt the...
