Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...
 

EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft and Ubisoft are still going...

  • Valve Increases Every CS:GO Major to $1 Million Prize Pool

    Valve Increases Every CS:GO Major to $1 Million Prize Pool

    Valve is starting to show the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene a bit more love. Starting with MLG Columbus 2016, every CS:GO Major Championship will have a prize pool of $1 million.
    When we announced the first CS:GO Major Championship in 2013, we hoped the Majors would be rallying points for the community, tent-pole events that could draw new audiences and amplify the value of all events. Since then, the professional CS:GO community has been growing at an incredible rate. CS:GO tournaments are now among the largest esports events in the world, drawing global audiences of millions of viewers, filling massive venues, and

  • SteamVR Performance Test is Live

    SteamVR Performance Test is Live

    Valve has just made live their SteamVR Performance Test to assess if your PC is ready for our virtual reality future.
    The SteamVR Performance Test measures your system's rendering power using a 2-minute sequence from Valves Aperture Robot Repair VR demo. After collecting the data it determines whether your system is capable of running VR content at 90fps and whether VR content can tune the visual fidelity up to the recommended level. For machines that are not VR Ready the tool can help determine whether capabilities are bound by Graphics Card, CPU, or both.
    For those wondering, the HTC Vive recommends the following PC specs: ...

  • PSA: Source Engine Security Warning, Loophole Spoofs SteamIDs Grants File Write Permissions on Client Machines

    There is a post on the Steam section of Reddit by a user that claims he discovered a severe security loophole with Source Engine games. Specifically, it's a problem with multiplayer games running on Source, including games like Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Garry's Mod, Dota 2, and more. The user claims that he found a way to not only spoof Steam IDs, but he also found a way that would allow malicious server admins to "(write) files on every client."

    To put it bluntly if this is true, it could be quite harmful if used by the wrong types of people. Here is his Reddit post in full including examples of how he's able to force a server to push an executable to a client.
    Short version: If you join any source engine server your PC might
