  • “Our intent is to align the Microsoft Edge web platform simultaneously (a) with web standards and (b) with other Chromium-based browsers. This will deliver improved compatibility for everyone and create a simpler test-matrix for web developers,” Microsoft said. He also acknowledged that Microsoft’s decision could make it more difficult for Firefox to prosper, depending on what web developers and businesses who create services and websites do. “If one product like Chromium has enough market share

  • Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey flings us back 10 million years to the origins of humanity. Announced a few years ago by Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets and his team as Panache Digital Games, we’re only now getting a look at it in action. In the first part, ten million years ago, there’s a single ape swinging through the trees before getting devoured by a snake. Finally, just shy of three million years ago, a band of hunters encounter and kill a huge saber-toothed cat. It’s an open-wo

  • It’s a chilly, snow-themed island called Vikendi, bringing with it new weather, a new gun and the coolest way to get around a battlefield: snowmobiles. There’s a ‘60s cosmodrome, complete with rocket, and a even quirky dinosaur theme park. “In every map, you’re always going to have these iconic, central locations that really lend themselves to hot-dropping,” Curd says. Some of PUBG Corp’s artists took a trip to Slovenia where they found a dinosaur park, inspiring the one in-game. The developers

  • The Block, a flat concrete lot, just replaced Risky Reels on Fortnite’s battle royale map. Think back to the long forgotten age of this morning when Fortnite Season 7 and the new creative mode went live. The Block will be where the best player-made creations are put on display for everyone, so long as they make the cut. Epic says the feature and creative mode are still fairly new and rough, so you’ll need to stick to the following rules to put whatever you make up for consideration. Epic is alwa

  • After building a spectacularly large audience with Fornite, Epic is turning its game launcher into a Steam-like store—though one that offers developers a larger revenue share. The first games it’s offering are now visible on the Epic Store . First of all, Subnautica and Super Meat Boy, both great games, are going to be free for a limited time, starting later in December. But also: free games. We’d never heard of a game called Hades until now, and yet here it is, available on the Epic Store in Ea

    If you’re having trouble entering the Blind Well PvE arena in Destiny 2, you’re not alone. The instructions are to walk into the Blind Well slowly, via the right side hallway while hugging the wall. Walking slowly into the arena has apparently been a trick to expedite matchmaking for a while, but it’s funny to see Bungie openly acknowledging it. Here’s their tweet:We have identified an issue with matchmaking within the Blind Well. It’s become clear that we made the initial Power requirements for

    First announced at Microsoft’s 2013 E3 press conference, fantasy roguelike Below is finally releasing on December 14 – just in time to meet its 2018 release window. Below is a roguelike: it has a procedurally generated world full of dark dungeons and ominous outdoor environments, and permadeath. There’s plenty of games like this in 2018, but the art style of Below will certainly set it apart. “If I’m not bleeding out from an encounter with my little red friends, I’m contending with an empty stom

    Blizzard announced yesterday that the Winter Wonderland will return to Overwatch on December 11, a snowy special event that we predicted would be preceded by the usual array of new Legendary skin reveals. Sure enough, we were right (shocking, I know): First on the runway is Snowboarder Zarya, whose cute furry look makes for a very different sort of “Russian Bear.” Pawsitively fursome.Shred your opponents as SNOWBOARDER ZARYA (Legendary)! 🏂Winter Wonderland begins Dec 11!

  • In response to those complaints, Valve has posted a message in the Steamworks Development group (available to the public) explaining what happened. This change was meant to fix an issue where customers would search for a game, but that game would be much lower in the search results than other less relevant games,” Valve wrote. “As a result, overall impressions and views for the ‘More Like This’ section did show a substantial decrease for about two weeks after the initial bug,” Valve said.

    Mike Laidlaw, formerly the creative director and lead designer on the Dragon Age RPG series, left BioWare in 2017 so he could try his hand at other things—including the Dragon Age: Origins-inspired RPG The Waylanders. But today he announced that he’s back at a big developer, this time as the creative director at Ubisoft Quebec. If you’ve played the excellent Assassin’s Creed Odyssey—which was principally developed here in Quebec City—you already have some taste of what that combination can produ

  • Zotac recently added another GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card model to its product stack, and in doing so it seemingly revealed that Nvidia was adding a GDDR5X memory option to the 1070, like it did with the GeForce GTX 1060 in October. If you got your hopes up, brace yourself—the GDDR5X memory that initially appeared in the specifications was a “simple mistake” on Zotac’s part. The potential advantage of using GDDR5X memory is ultimately more bandwidth, by running at faster speeds. It remains to

  • Reports say a new Dragon Age game is set to be revealed at The Game Awards tomorrow—but it’ll be at least three years until you can play it. The report says that this new Dragon Age game has spent a year in limbo. If this report is correct, it’ll be at least seven years between Dragon Age instalments.
