You can download Cyberpunk 2077 now – here’s when play time starts

If you're looking to download Cyberpunk 2077 as soon as possible, now's the time.

Cyberpunk 2077 Review Roundup

Cyberpunk 2077 Review Roundup

The game Cyberpunk 2077 seems to be a win. Reviews released thus far suggest the game is a masterpiece, well worth the $60 (or so) you'll pay for it. On PlayStation 4 (or 5) and Xbox One (or Xbox Series X), and Google Stadia, the game appears to be as playable as it is on your high-end gaming PC. The game might not be perfect - but it would appear that the biggest complaint anyone's really had so far is about how the game's plot doesn't go on without end.

Here’s how to use PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller in Steam

The PlayStation 5 is barely out of the gate - particularly in regions like Europe - but Valve has wasted little time in bringing DualSense controller support to Steam. Steam's DualSense support is still in the early stages of testing, which means it isn't live for all users yet. Still, assuming that their games are using the Steam Input API, developers don't have to do anything to get DualSense functionality up and running in their games, which is certainly a nice touch.

Steam Playtest offers a new way to test pre-release games for free

Most probably see Steam simply as a store and launcher for games but Valve has always positioned it as a platform. It is, after all, one of if not the first to implement systems like achievements and trophies separate from whatever reward systems the game may have built-in. Steam also offers tools for developers to manage, monetize, and monitor their games and Valve is now giving them yet another tool that could make it easier to invite people to test games that are still in development.

Steam Chat Filtering lets you decide which words to bleep out

Steam Chat Filtering lets you decide which words to bleep out

Gaming platforms have started to realize that harm doesn't simply come from seeing or having access to age-inappropriate games, it can also come from seeing inappropriate or hurtful messages. Gamers, especially in highly competitive titles, have long used colorful language, to put it mildly, in communicating with others, sometimes without considering whether the recipient is comfortable with it or not. Valve is now rolling out a chat filtering system for Steam that puts gamers in complete control while keeping its own hands off moderating these chats.
