Valve’s love-in with the Ubuntu Linux distribution appears to be coming to an end. Following changes to support for 32-bit x86 applications with Ubuntu 19.10, Valve is pulling the plug on official Ubuntu support in Steam.
The Dota Underlords open beta is available right now. Valve’s new game, which is itself a spin-off from the popular Dota Auto Chessgame mode, is available through PC on Steam, as well as mobile versions on both Android and iOS.
And there it is. 19 years later, Baldur’s Gate is back. Announced during Google’s Stadia pre-E3 live event, Baldur’s Gate 3 is in development at Larian Studios, the same team behind Divinity: Original Sin 2.
It’s actually happening. Divinity: Original Sin 2 developer Larian Studios has updated its website with a mysterious teaser for a presumably imminent game announcement. When you overhaul your website 10 days before E3, it’s safe to say a few assumptions are made.
Steam has reached one hell of a milestone this week, reaching more than one billion unique user accounts. The discovery was made on Steam ID Finder, a site which tracks user ID generation. User ‘amusedsilentdragonfly’ became the illustrious user number one billion (U:1:1000000000) when they signed up to Steam on April 28th.
The ever-industrious Larian Studios have unveiled yet another Divinity game. I’ve only just managed to finish the gargantuan quest that was Divinity: Original Sin, let alone D:OS2, but new games from the turn-based RPG maestros flow like ale from an everlasting flagon.
Heavily rumoured for years now, Valve has taken the veil off its upcoming Steam redesign during a GDC panel.
Epic can’t seem to go more than five minutes without stumbling into another scandal. It’s now emerged that Epic Games is farming users’ Steam data while running the Epic Games Launcher.
For those who looked deep enough, there was an impressive amount of lore and world-building in the Souls games, and Bloodborne took this to an even greater level. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice should hopefully follow in these fine footsteps, although the new story trailer for Sekiro is lot more on-the-nose than we’ve come to expect from From Software.
UPDATE: Star Control: Origins is back! The space role-playing game was pulled from Steam at the start of this month after a DMCA takedown request from the IP's original co-creators, Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford.
Valve has outlined some of the big changes that’ll be coming to Steam throughout 2019 and beyond. Competition is heating up in the weird and wonderful world of PC game clients and Valve is no doubt feeling the pressure to adapt, if not survive.
