After Epic launched its own game story offering 88 per cent of revenue to developers, Discord has stepped into the fray, saying it’ll let developers self-publish games on its store in 2019 offering 90 per cent of revenue.
The war for the hearts and minds of PC gamers is hotting up, with Epic and now Discord taking on Steam, which has traditionally offered developers and publishers 70 per cent of revenue.
Discord is predominantly a chat app focused on video games, but it’s branched out in 2018 to sell some video games. It seems it wants to get stuck in even more in 2019, and given over 200 million people have used Discord, it may have a chance of making an impression.
“We talked to a lot of developers, and many of them feel that current stores are not earning their 30 per cent of th...Read More
On Thursday evening, Blizzard Entertainment announced it was scaling back work on Heroes of the Storm, its cross-franchise MOBA, and moving developers from that game to other projects. While Blizzard said it would continue to work on the game and release new content, it was a clear sign that Heroes of the Storm will not be a priority for the company in 2019 and beyond.
For many fans of the game, however, it was the cancellation of the Heroes Global Championship for 2019 that hit hardest. Dropping the HGC — and the Heroes of the Dorm collegiate circuit — was a sign of no confidence in Heroes of the Storm as a viable esport.
People who made a living based on Heroes of the Storm, including players, streamers, team owners and commentators, say they feel blindsided and betrayed by the ...
The Switch has this week reinforced its position as the top portable video game system in Japan by surpassing the local lifetime sales count of Sony’s PlayStation Vita.
The Vita had a significant headstart, launching in Japan in 2011, compared to Nintendo’s hybrid device which released domestically last March. There’s been a recent surge in Switch sales leading into the holiday period and following the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!
In less than two years of availability within Japan, the Switch has now shifted more than six million units (approx. 6,112,100). In the past week, the system sold another 281,222 units...

Klabater have announced today that ’90s Football Stars, vintage tribute to old-school football games, is already available in Early Access on Steam. ’90s Football Stars boldly recalls the glory days of the ’90s football, bringing back memories of cult classic games like Sensible World of Soccer and popular cartoon series such us Captain Tsubasa. With its vintage, not-too-serious, artistic and creative modern approach to classic gameplay, ’90s Football Stars is certainly a perfect game for people who are weary of football managers or complicated hardcore simulators. It is super fast, dynamic experience with medium sized fields – no fouls and offsides whistled. Just for having fun!
The Early Access version of the game will include the following elements:
1 stadium with 5 weather ...
Excessive and unpaid overtime, zero-hour contracts and a pervasive culture of homophobia and sexism – these are the three top issues to be tackled by a new video games industry branch of the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB).
The new union branch, Games Workers Unite, will be the first of its kind in the UK – despite the fact the video games industry is one of the country’s fastest-growing sectors, with approximately 47,000 people now involved.
Now is a great time for this in particular after the spotlight was recently shone on the working practices at Red Dead Redemption 2 developer Rockstar Games, which employs hundreds of people in the UK.
As part of Eurogamer’s investigation into Rockstar’s crunch culture, I spoke with numerous people at Rockstar Lincoln, a stud...Read More
After dropping a 10-episode debut season in October, Santa (and Netflix) delivered a gift for fans of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. “A Midwinter’s Tale,” the series Doctor Who-like holiday special, brings us back to the town of Greendale, in the days leading up to two very important holidays for the residents: the Winter Solstice for the witches and Christmas for the mortals.
But while the juxtaposition of the cheery traditional celebrations and the Spellman family’s occult holiday makes for amusing moments, the special serves as a bridge between what we’ve seen and where the show is ultimately going in season two. The answers aren’t totally satisfying.
[Ed. Note: This contains spoilers for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina through “A Midwinter’s Tale.”]
