  • Unfortunately, we’re not getting a sequel, but Rebellion is getting some new DLC very soon. The Minor Factions DLC will pop into existence on December 17. Minor Factions throws 15 new minor factions into the cosmic maelstrom. Prospective stellar conquerors will need to court and control these minor factions, competing with the other major powers. You’ll be able to grab Minor Factions on Monday for $6.

  • Below, we’ve collected what we know about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, including its release date, and a few interesting details that those leaks spotlight—even if they might turn out to be incorrect. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s story takes place after Revenge of the SithOh no, I remembered this film existed. The tagline for Jedi: Fallen Order says the game “tells an original Star Wars story around a surviving Padawan set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Si

  • Razer has launched a new crypto rewards program called Razer SoftMiner that enables users to put their GPUs to work mining “Silver.” But Razer also emphasized that Razer Silver itself “is not a cryptocurrency.” “[Razer Silver] is a loyalty rewards program,” it explained in the FAQ. “We work with crypto mining technology to harness your computer’s GPU. Your PC is just sitting there doing nothing anyway, and taking advantage of a rewards program is a whole lot simpler than having to deal with the

  • On Monday, Saber Interactive announced that the upcoming zombie swarm shooter World War Z would be released on the Epic Store—and perhaps not Steam, although that was entirely speculative on my part. I’ll be honest: The trailer did not help me much in distinguishing between most of the classes. You’ve got your Ninja and your Medic, but after that it’s pretty much Guns, Guns, Guns, and, uh, Guns. And finally, The Exterminator, “armed with Molotov cocktails and increased fire damage,” and an inten

  • In a $23.9 billion-dollar deal, Dell shareholders voted today to make the company public once again after five years of being a privately-held company. To make their publicly-traded status official, Dell is in the process of acquiring all the tracking stock of their subsidiary VMWare (DVMT) at $120 per share. This decision is expected to help the company grow further by allowing Dell to go after more stock-based acquisitions to gain more IP and expertise it needs to stay competitive in the tech-

  • Blizzard has unveiled the Overwatch League schedule for 2019, which will begin where the 2018 season left off: With a rematch between Grand Finals competitors London Spitfire and Philadelphia Fusion. The new season will feature a reduced schedule of 28 matches per team instead of 40, and an increased prize pool of $5 million, up from $3.5 million in 2018. The 2019 season will be broken down into four stages of five weeks each, with playoffs capping each of the first three stages. #OWL2019Here’s

  • “Throughout 2019, we’ll be launching a large set of cross-platform game services originally built for Fortnite, and battle-tested with 200,000,000 players across 7 platforms,” Epic announced today. “These services will be free for all developers, and will be open to all engines, all platforms, and all stores.

  • The long-running lawsuit between Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media and Facebook over the VR technology developed for the Oculus Rift is finally over, as ZeniMax announced today that the companies have reached a settlement to end the litigation. Facebook got involved a couple of months after the suit was filed when it announced that it had acquired Oculus VR for $2 billion. Both companies had appealed the case to the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, but reached the settlem

  • Starting with Sunny Cove, the new architecture is bound for both Xeon server and Core consumer processors. We’ve never heard Intel reference Sunny Cove before, so it was a bit of surprise, especially with several other architectures already on the roadmap. Now with the introduction of Sunny Cove, Intel seems to be indicating it has a firm grasp on 10nm design and (presumably) manufacturing as well. On top of it all, Sunny Cove is designed to offer better branch prediction accuracy and larger cac

  • If you’ve been looking for a sweet and cuddly take on battle royale, your whiskers may be twitching this morning. That’s because Super Animal Royale just entered Steam Early Access. It’s also free to play for the next three days on Steam, and having played several rounds this morning I highly recommend trying it out. In Super Animal Royale you’re carried by an enormous duck across the map, then descend using an open umbrella as your parachute. There aren’t a heck of a lot of players in Super Ani

    In the last 24 hours, it peaked at a not insubstantial 12,670 players, but that’s quite the drop from the 60,740 concurrent players from November 29. That it peaked just after launch isn’t surprising, but the decline since then has been steep, especially given that few other games on Steam have the advantages it does. It’s still in the top 20 top selling games on Steam right now, but its popularity seems to be waning. It’s still enough to get a multiplayer game right now, but we’ll keep an eye o

    Fortnite’s Infinity Blade popped into existence yesterday, killing people in a single hit, destroying buildings and bestowing anyone carrying it with regenerating health. It’s devastatingly powerful, much like Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet, and its inclusion during the Winter Royale tournament has created chaos. Only one spawns per match and it turns players into nearly unstoppable killing machines. It’s a lot of fun, and while that’s good for the game in general, it is apparently less welcome in a

    Those guns might not fire bullets, but standing on one is like being stabbed by a tiny bayonet. They’ve taken over Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, as well. The war of the wee plastic warriors is a timed holiday event created in collaboration with the Green Army Men mod team. Instead of playing in the jungles of Vietnam, players can duke it out across the living room, complete with Christmas accoutrements. You can hop into this plastic war from the main menu between now and January 7, unlocking a specia

    Specifically, you’ll be cleaning up the aftermath of Fox Huntington’s attack on Dr. Hades’ secret lair. Dr. Hades (presumably deceased) plotted against the world from inside a volcano, so at least you get to visit exotic places. Like all good Bond villains, Dr. Hades had a fetish for lasers and sharks, and judging by the trailer, they’ll simultaneously make your life easier and more difficult. As Pip notes, Viscera Cleanup Detail is great for bonding. Viscera Cleanup Detail left Early Access ove

  • Infinity Blade is an RPG series exclusive to Apple’s iOS devices. Developed by Epic Games, the trilogy served as a fancy way to show off an iDevice’s gaming prowess. Well, in its announcement post, Epic Games suggests that Infinity Blade may pop up in places “you wouldn’t expect”. But it’s also fairly likely that Epic Games will re-release the Infinity Blade games for its recently launched Epic Games Store. “With the development of Spyjinx and other projects, it has become increasingly difficult

  • “A lot of things didn’t work out in Washington DC,” Glukhovsky said. “In Washington DC, Nazis don’t work, Communists don’t work at all, and the Dark Ones don’t work. Washington DC is a black city basically. As a fan of those games, that’s what I want to see, and it’s also apparently the kind of film Glukhovsky wants to see made. Glukhovsky said he’s still “optimistic” about a Metro 2033 film being made, and expressed hope that the upcoming release of Metro Exodus will help the process by exposin

  • World War Z was announced near the end of 2017 as a four-player survival-shooter inspired by the “blockbuster film franchise” of the same name. And today, Saber dropped another little surprise:World War Z is coming in 2019 to the Epic Games store! First, the Epic Store listing is live (it’s not available for preorder yet, but it’s there) but there’s still no sign of it on Steam. It’s also reasonable to think that if it was going to be an Epic exclusive, you’d see an Epic Store logo there instead

  • If you’re looking for a small gift to give the PC gamer in your life, here’s something to consider: Corsair’s M65 Pro RGB mouse is just $30 right now on Amazon and Newegg. That’s a $30 drop from the original MSRP, and $10 lower than the previous Amazon price. The M65 Pro has a 12000 DPI high-accuracy sensor, an “aircraft-grade” aluminum structure, adjustable weights, and Omron switches rated at 12 million clicks. You can set double macros and change the RGB lights using Corsair’s CUE software. N

  • Several retailers are flaunting Intel’s mighty Core i9-9900K processor at a discount today, though none are cheaper (that we’ve found) than Amazon—it’s going for $508.24 after clicking on the 5 percent coupon box in the listing. That price has even Micro Center beat, which typically undercuts the competition with in-store only pricing. It’s still not a cheap CPU, obviously, but it delivers plenty of processing bang for all those bucks. The Core i9-9900K is Intel’s first (and still only) 8-core/1
