Ubisoft leaves Steam for the Epic Store

2 monthes ago   |   By The Next Web

With the release of The Division 2, Ubisoft is officially jumping ship. After having a relatively cozy relationship with Valve's industry standard, Steam, the Canadian company is now moving to Epic's newly-launched storefront. It begs the question: why would it bring its new release to the Epic Store, rather than sell it exclusively on its own launcher, as others have done before? If you've heard of the Epic Store, you likely know its major selling point: that it offers an 88/12 percent revenue split in favor of the game publisher, a much more advantageous split than Steam‘s 70/30.

HP's BFGD is now called the Omen X Emperium and it's coming in February

2 monthes ago   |   By Rock, Paper, Shotgun

One of the big things I was expecting to hear more about at this year's CES was Nvidia's BFGDs - or Big Format Gaming Displays, to use their proper name. Or maybe that's not the right name to use any more, as we did hear a little bit about Nvidia's BFGDs at CES this week, in that they've now been pulled under the banner of Nvidia's G-Sync Ultimate brand along with the rest of their high-end HDR screens like the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ and the Acer Predator X27 .
But that was sort of it. No big release date, no additional displays to be added to their currently just three-strong line-up...

Publisher Epic has pledged that, every two weeks throughout 2019, it will give away a new PC game to anyone with an Epic Games Store account. All you have to do is visit the store to collect it.

What Remains Of Edith Finch free on Epic Games Store right now

2 monthes ago   |   By Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Fantastic first-person walk-o-story What Remains Of Edith Finch is free for keepsies right now on the Epic Games Store, and I highly recommend nabbing it. It's a beautiful and melancholic tale with a magical realist bent, exploring the lives and deaths of the family who've lived in a strange and lonely house for generations. It's one of the best PC games and all, says us. Epic are signing up all sorts of exclusives to get their store going, including having Ubisoft onboard with The Division 2 , but little excites more than free video games.
