Watch the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Announcement Trailer


At the end of February, the world was alerted to the fact that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) and EA would reveal a trailer for their new Star Wars title on this very day. It turns out, this scheduled event happened as planned.

Imagine that.

Earlier today the studios revealed the first details and trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the Star Wars Celebration that has been going on this weekend in Chicago. This is an original game set in the Star Wars universe and looks to take place after Order 66 was issued. This places the game set shortly...
 

New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the major questions fans of...
 

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

  • Valve's Fix for Combating Review Bombing is a Graph

    Valve's Fix for Combating Review Bombing is a Graph

    Review bombing is when a bunch of Steam users get together in an effort to drastically raise or drastically lower the user scores for a game. It's usually the case that a developer or publisher has done something that people don't agree with so they "get back" at them by submitting a bunch of negative reviews. Those mass spammed negative reviews are then upvoted in a mass circle jerk while any positive reviews are mass downvoted. This is all done in an effort to... do... something? I guess their end goal is just to lower a game's overall user score enough that it may dissuade people from buying it in the future. I mean, it worked out well for Grand Theft Auto V a few months ago. It worked out so well...

  • Steam Surpasses 15 Million Concurrent Users as PUBG Surpasses Dota 2 Player Record

    Whew, PC gaming sure is dead, eh? We have some new records to announce to you today. First up, Steam has surpassed 15 million concurrent users. This means that all around the world statues crumble for me there were 15 million people logged into Steam but not necessarily playing games. Still though, it's impressive. What is even more impressive is when you realize that this breaks the previous record of around 14.7 million users, which happened last weekend. That, in turn, broke the previous record of 14.5 million users from the weekend before that. That 14.5 million users broke the previous record of 14.3 million users, set the week prior to th...

  • TmarTn and Syndicate Get Off Scott Free After Promoting Gambling Site to Minors

    TmarTn and ProSyndicate have gotten away with little more than a stern warning after it was discovered that they were promoting Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gambling sites to minors. Specifically, they were promoting CS:GO gambling sites that they owned to minors, without any sort of disclosure. The two had paid other, unnamed, YouTubers anywhere between $2,500 (USD) and $55,000 to promote their sites. Well, the FTC has investigated and surprise, surprise, the two will face no penalties for their actions. Oh, but don't worry too much. The FTC said that in the future they will require proper disclosure from the two and will enforce violations. They will a...

  • Steam Banned in Malaysia Over Fight of Gods Game

    Steam Banned in Malaysia Over Fight of Gods Game

    Fight of Gods is an Early Access fighting game on Steam that, as you may already have guessed, include a number of gods and religious figures all battling it out. The roster includes religious figures such as good ol' Jesus "JC" Christ, Buddha, Zeus, Odin, and more. Turns out that Malaysia, specifically the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission, weren't too happy about that game. They went ahead and banned the entire country from accessing the Steam store. They feel as though the game is a "threat to the sanctity of religion and inter-racial harmony in the country." A minister with the commission allegedly said that Valve was given a...

  • This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    January 8, 2016 is when we reported that Half-Life writer, Marc Laidlaw, parted ways from Valve. 18 years worth of writing for the company saw him pen some of the best games of our lifetime including the entirety of Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Portal. It was sad, disappointing, and even a bit frustrating that he left before we ever got to experience his work in Half-Life 3.

    It's weird to think about Half-Life 3. Fans have wanted it for years now, but Valve just doesn't seem capable of creating it. Perhaps they just don't want to at this point. Why would they? Steam and micro-transactions make them far more money than any single player narrative ever could, despite the hope that their fan base struggles to cling to. Episode 2 ended on one doozy of a cliff hanger and we wanted some sort of resolution to our experience. ...

  • Valve Made a New Game. It's a Dota Card Game. Yeah, I know.

    Valve Made a New Game. It's a Dota Card Game. Yeah, I know.

    Valve finally made a new game. It's a collectible card battling game based on Dota called Artifact. Actually, it seems as though the full title is Artifact - The Dota Card Game, just in case there was any grey room remaining on it being tied to Dota. They announced it this evening during The International 7 and man that crowd reaction was priceless. There isn't anything known about this game outside of the fact that it's coming in 2018 and Valve has released a teaser for the game. Given that it's a card game and it's tied to Dota, you can almost say with 100% certainty that the game is going to have micro-transactions out the ass...
