    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. That w

    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

    Starbreeze, the publisher of games including Payday 2 and Overkill’s The Walking Dead, has confirmed reports that its Stockholm office was raided by Swedish authorities investigating allegations of insider trading. Word of the raid first surfaced in Swedish sources including Expressen.se, which said that authorities had seized computers and documents as part of an investigation into a “suspected gross insider breach in Starbreeze.” “On Wednesday Swedish Economic Crime Authority has conducted a s

  • This is the best time of year to build or upgrade your PC, or add to it (like a new router). We’re knee-deep in the holiday shopping season at this point, and that means there are deals galore. This is day two of its ’12 Days of Deals’ event, each day of which focuses on a specific category. We’ve already highlighted some of the better deals on Logitech’s gaming peripherals and accessories, but that’s just scratching a very large surface. Some online stores give us a small cut if you buy somethi

  • 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

  • Bethesda has confirmed that we can expect Fallout 76’s live in-game events to begin early next year. “We are excited to announce that, starting in early 2019, we plan to release a variety of in-game events that will take place over the course of a week. We’ve wondered for a while how Fallout 76 will benefit from being a live game. Chris gave Fallout 76 60 percent, citing numerous problems with the PC version and the game itself. “Despite the considerable issues with the PC version, I’ve still ha

  • 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. Did Dragon Age get stuck in the Deep Roads? I’m curious to know what forms Dragon Age 4 has taken over the years—developer Alexis Kennedy discussed his involvement in the project in August last yea

  • Today’s Destiny 2 update was fairly bland as these things go—fixes and tweaks, mostly—but one note was worthy of a double-take: “Fixed an issue where Protheon, the Modular Mind grew three times larger than intended in Update 2.1.0.” Protheon, Modular Mind is a pretty big fella to begin with, so three times his size? This week we fixed an issue where Protheon, Modular Mind, the boss of the Inverted Spire strike, grew three times his normal size.You asked for video evidence so here’s your “bigboi”

  • Instead, I have a question: Do we need point C? Do we need the point in the middle of the map, which is surrounded by all the other points, and which is full of grenades at all times? I wonder this mostly because of Battlefield 5’s Rotterdam map, which features a central cathedral that is constantly being contested. Meanwhile, at least one squad on the other team circumnavigated the map and captured all of the surrounding points but one. I assume that’s because most players were in Conquest dyin

  • Sequels followed in 2003, 2004, and 2007 (confusingly called Unreal Tournament 3), and in 2014 a new UT was announced. Don’t feel bad if you’ve forgotten about that (or just hadn’t heard), though, because it’s been a couple of years since the last time we checked in—when, ironically, we declared that “it’s time to pay attention to the new Unreal Tournament.” Originally released in mid-2017 as a third-person survival-shooter, Fortnite became a mega-sensation a few months later when the Unreal Tou

The only way to confirm a kill in Sandstorm is to watch the body drop.” “When it comes to combat, Sandstorm delivers that trademark Insurgency brutality with gusto, even in beta.

  • Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove, a new tale about a pair of alien weirdos who crash-land on Earth and find success as a rap duo (which I guess seemed like a reasonable premise in 1991) has been scheduled for release on March 1, 2019. The 2019 date is a delay, which comes on top of a delay to 2018 that was announced in late 2017. Humanature Studios co-founder Greg Johnson said at the time that the team “tried super hard to get ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove out in 2017,” but that it need

  • It also brings with it the dry prose of patch notes, explaining exactly what’s coming in the 2.1.1.1 update. There are a couple of interesting points however, including a change to the Chaos Reach ability that will ensure more consistent retention of Super energy when it’s deactivated early. “Previously, Chaos Reach allowed Players to save Super energy when deactivating the Super early by charging a flat Super energy cost upon deactivation (~65%). This meant that in order to save Super energy, y

  • The cast iron skillet in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds may have saved your bacon a time or two, and now it can save your PC station of cable clutter too. That’s because NZXT is selling a limited PUBG pan-theme puck accessory to hang your headset on. Like NZXT’s regular puck, the PUBG pan pucks has magnets inside so it can grip to your metal case. We also wouldn’t try blocking bullets with an actual cast iron frying pan either, just to be clear on that. NZXT is limiting production to 2,000 pieces

  • Following that old saying, ‘If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’, Microsoft might be kicking its Edge browser to the curb and replacing it with a Chromium-based browser. Despite shipping as the default browser in Windows 10, Edge has never been able to capture a large share of the market. Initially, Edge represented Microsoft’s attempt to regain its position atop the browser market, as with the early days of Internet Explorer. Microsoft developed a new EdgeHTML rendering engine for Edge, and promise
