Bethesda Celebrates 25 Years of Elder Scrolls with a Morrowind Giveaway


Bethesda is celebrating 25 years of The Elder Scrolls today. On this day back in 1994, Bethesda released the first Elder Scrolls title called The Elder Scrolls: Arena for DOS. And while it's not that easy to play the original Elder Scrolls on modern machines, you should still be able to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

It's probably a good thing that FOR TODAY ONLY (March 25, 2019), you can get a free copy of Morrowind to keep forever and ever for the life of the Bethesda.net Launcher. Here is how you can snag your free copy of Morrowind, plus some other freebies. Do...
 

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Announced, Pre-orders Available Now


After multiple weeks and a few months of teases, including a long running ARG surrounding a dating app called Tinder, we now have an official announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Paradox Interactive made the big reveal just moments ago via a GDC party. The party was "supposed" to be for a new Tinder reveal but thanks to some unintentionally cheesy live-action role playing, it turned out to be a big reveal for Bloodlines 2.

This is a direct sequel to the previous title that came out back in 2004 on the very same day that Half-Life 2 was released....
 

Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

Library
First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...
 

Nintendo Embraces Indie - Cuphead, Darkwood, a Dancing Zelda, and More Revealed Today for Switch


Are you ready for the invasion of the Indies on the Nintendo Switch? Earlier today, a new Nindies Showcase for Spring 2019 outlined a good number of independent developed titles that are coming soon to the portable console otherwise known as the Switch.

Some of the highlights in today's announcement include Cuphead from Studio MDHR. This one will be out on April 18. In addition, Cadence of Hyrule - Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring the Legend of Zelda was also announced today.

The Outer Worlds, Remedy's Control, Detroit: Become Human, and More Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusives


As part of today's GDC presentation, Epic Games announced a number of timed exclusives that are coming first to the Epic Games Store. Among these games are The Outer Worlds, Control from Remedy Entertainment, and even some PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream.

Some of these titles, such as The Outer Worlds, will also appear on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. I guess this just lends more confirmation that Epic is less about purchasing exclusives and more about simply paying companies to keep their games off of Steam. Consumers should not...

  • Astralis Wins Record Breaking ELEAGUE Major

    Astralis Wins Record Breaking ELEAGUE Major

    The first Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major hosted by ELEAGUE came to a thrilling conclusion today in a battle between Astralis and Virtus.pro. The final scores were 12-16, 16-14, and 16-14 wherein Virtus.pro choked away a victory. At least that's what I've heard. I didn't watch this.

    The event set records across Twitch earlier today. The ELEAGUE Major Grand Final became the first event in Twitch's long history to surpass one million concurrent viewers on one channel. This doesn't include the 200,000+ that were watching on other channels.

    Gabe Newell Says Valve is Working on a New Single Player Game and Source 2

    Valve's Gabe Newell had an AMA today in the quasi-satirical r/The_Gaben subreddit. During his brief session answering community questions, Newell revealed that Valve might actually still be a game developer.

    TOTALLY SHOCKING NEWS: Half-Life 3 Doesn't Exist

    What's the deal with this news making the rounds today? The news I'm talking about is this bit about some alleged Valve insider telling Game Informer that Half-Life 3 doesn't exist.

    Really?

    You don't say! This isn't anything new in the slightest. The interview, as it relates to the development of Half-Life 3 tells us very few new details.


    There is no such thing as Half-Life 3. Valve has never announced a Half-Life 3. The
