Battlefront 3 remake is coming to Steam for free

Battlefront 3 remake is coming to Steam for free

Despite its commercial success, many people were disappointed by Star Wars: Battlefront. Don't get me wrong, the game is absolutely beautiful, but the lack of a single-player campaign, as well as the omission of space battles really hurt the game.

Hack lets PS4 run Steam Linux games

This current generation of consoles, both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, did something substantially different from their predecessors. For the first time, they sported desktop PC components inside, practically making them special purpose PCs fine-tuned for gaming. That fact, of course, has piqued the curiosity of many modders and hackers in actually making those machines run a different operating system, usually Linux.

It's not enough, we think, to just show the flat feed - though we've had to do that already several times. It's also not enough just to show two screens - flat feed and a real view of the user with a VR headset on.
