Source Filmmaker files point to upcoming Source 2 engine

Source Filmmaker files point to upcoming Source 2 engine

It's always hard to tell what's going on behind the scenes at Valve, but if recently-uncovered Source Filmmaker files are to be believed, the Half-Life developer is planning something big. Valvetime has uncovered a bunch of references to a planned Source 2 engine lurking in Source Filmmaker's script files, so it seems that Valve is planning a new version of the Source engine. That makes a lot of sense, considering that Valve has been using Source in one form or another since 2004.

BioWare details Leviathan and Firefight Mass Effect 3 DLC

Mass Effect 3's multiplayer is definitely a fun way to pass the time, but if you're like me, you bought Mass Effect 3 for the single player story. Disappointingly, single player DLC has been hard to come by with Mass Effect 3, while BioWare seems to release multiplayer DLC every other week. That's all about to change with BioWare's upcoming Leviathan and Firefight DLC, and today the studio dropped some details on both in a post on the BioWare blog.

Dawnguard now available on PC, PS3 players still waiting

Well, that was quick. Earlier this week Bethesda's Pete Hines promised that more information about the missing PC and PS3 releases of Dawnguard, Skyrim's first DLC, would be coming soon. When he said that, we didn't think he meant it would be releasing soon, but apparently he did. Yes, Dawnguard is available on PC right this very instant, but be ready to pony up that cash, because it comes with a price tag of $19.99.

New Assassin’s Creed III trailer gives a closer look at AnvilNext

There's no question that Assassin's Creed III is bringing a slew of new ideas and features to the franchise, but perhaps the biggest change is the inclusion of Ubisoft's new AnvilNext engine. We received a brief introduction to the AnvilNext engine back when Assassin's Creed III was first announced, but now a new trailer is giving us a closer look. It's also making some impressive promises, and if those are true, this stands to the be the most feature-rich Assassin's Creed game yet.

Minecraft update 1.3.1 arrives with emeralds and NPC trading

Minecraft update 1.3.1 has gone live, and we're going to level with you: it sounds pretty awesome. This is easily one of the biggest Minecraft updates we've had since the game officially launched back in November, adding a variety of new things and fixing a number of bugs. Though there's a lot of cool stuff to check out in this update, the biggest change by far is the merging of single player and multiplayer worlds.

Pachter: The Old Republic could net 50m players with free-to-play switch

Yesterday, Electronic Arts surprised absolutely no one by announcing that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be going free-to-play later this year. Wedbush Securities thinks that this is a great idea, and is encouraging investors to buy up stock in EA while they can still get in at a decent price. GamesIndustry International reports that EA's stock currently sits at $11.68 per share, but Wedbush gives the company a twelve-month target of $29.

Ubisoft speaks on DRM disaster

Ubisoft speaks on DRM disaster

Yesterday, Ubisoft made headlines when it was discovered that its UPlay service had a pretty big security hole that could allow malicious websites to access users' computers. The good news is that Ubisoft has issued a patch for the issue (and managed to do that rather quickly), but the bad news is just starting for the French publisher, which is already on thin ice with PC players thanks to its fondness of always-on DRM. Indeed, this security issue wouldn't been as big of a problem if Ubisoft didn't require players to run UPlay alongside many of its games, including most Assassin's Creed titles and a few games in the Tom Clancy franchise.
