  1. CS:GO players aren't happy about Valve's new paid analytics service It's more expensive, and less useful, than similar third-party tools. (Image credit: Valve) Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's latest operation just wrapped up. But while Broken Fang's analytics tracking tool will live on as a paid subscription, CS:GO fans aren't happy about a service that's seemingly more expensive and less useful than existing third-party tools. For $0.99 a month, CS:GO 360 Stats will let you track your stats across Competitive, Premier, and Wingman
  2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) has been rumoured to receive its own battle royale mode since last year. Aptly dubbed “Danger Zone”, Valve has made the mode official alongside making the game free-to-play, but it seems that not everyone supports the move. Danger Zone is “a fast-paced battle royale game mode built on CS:GO’s tactical gameplay where players use their wits, skill, and resources to fight to the finish,” according to Valve, including the same weapon play found in the base game. The crucial difference between Danger Zone and pre-established competitors on the ma
  3. Valve is still letting bots invade one of its longest-running games 'Team Fortress 2' has been nearly unplayable for over nine months. Nine months ago, Team Fortress 2 was overrun with racist, homophobic, sexist and transphobic bots. They were active in nearly every match, using cheats to secure headshots while spewing hate speech in the chat. Players documented the behavior and shared their frustration with Valve, the developer behind TF2, but the problem lingered for months. Once news of the bot invasion hit media outlets, Valve finally rolled out an update aimed at cu
  4. Steam Game Festival is now Steam Next Fest, and returns in June Steam Next Fest will take place over E3 2021 (Image credit: Steam) The Steam Game Festival has rebranded to Steam Next Fest, and it's kicking off on June 16. Earlier today, Valve unveiled Steam Next Fest, which is the return of the Steam Game Festival under a different name. The new festival will take place from June 16 to June 22, and will offer a boatload of demos, discounts, and game streams over the six days. "We've renamed the Steam Game Festival to more directly
  5. Proton Has Enabled 7000 Windows Games to Run on Linux We are reaching another milestone with ProtonDB: we are very close to 7000 Windows games confirmed to be working out of the box with Proton on Linux. The charts says it all: Proton has been receiving many updates in the past few months as well, with the introduction of the Soldier Linux runtime container and Proton Experimental on top of the regular Proton releases. We are still getting about 100 new titles working flawlessly (according to user reports) on a monthly basis, which is a very healthy a
  6. Valve cancels Artifact 2.0, makes existing versions free The Dota card game refresh is no longer in development Image: Valve Software Valve has stopped development on Artifact 2.0, a refreshed version of its Dota card game, the company announced Thursday. Artifact originally launched in November 2018, where the initial potential was hampered by a complex economy that tied into Artifact’s mechanics. Valve restarted the project in March 2020, and began testing Artifact 2.0. In a post published on Artifact’s Steam community page, Valve wr
  7. A court is forcing Valve to tell Apple how much money 436 different PC games made Apple subpoenaed Valve for the data Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Valve has been compelled by a California court to provide sales data on more than 400 Steam games to Apple and possibly reveal its yearly sales, revenue, and profits to Apple as well. The iPhone maker subpoenaed Valve for the data as part of its ongoing dispute with Fortnite developer Epic Games. According to a Wednesday or
  8. Valve & Netflix Are Making A DOTA Anime Screenshot: Netflix Sure, why not? Dragon’s Blood is an upcoming anime series that is “exploring the Dota universe like never before”. It’ll be out on March 25, and as the trailer below says, the series has been made “in collaboration with Valve”. This is cool for DOTA fans, I guess? Though it’s also a damn shame Valve’s anime debut (what a weird thing to type) is this, and not Seven Hour War. Source: Valve & Netflix Are Making A DOTA Anime
  9. Valve to pay $4 million to Corsair in Steam Controller patent infringement lawsuit Valve was initially warned in 2014, back when it was prototyping the hardware What just happened? A jury has unanimously found willful infringement on Valve's part regarding the use of "rear-side control surfaces" (or back paddles) on its Steam Controller and ordered the company to pay $4 million in damages to Corsair-owned Ironburg Inventions and SCUF. Ironburg Inventions and SCUF, the Corsair-owned maker of high-end performance controllers and holders of an "extensive
  10. Valve May Launch Chinese-Specific Version of Steam Next Week The future is still uncertain for Chinese gamers. (Image credit: Shutterstock) Valve will potentially release a public beta for a Chinese-specific version of Steam starting on February 9th, according to Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad, who specializes in the Asian and especially Chinese game industries. This would be the culmination of efforts Valve began in 2018 alongside Chinese developer Perfect World and would see the fulfillment of a promise the company made earlier this January
  11. RIP in peace — Remaining stock is sold out in Europe, "almost sold out in the US." Valve is quietly discontinuing Steam Link, the in-home streaming box it first launched in late 2015. A low-key announcement on Valve's Steam Link news page suggests that production of new units has ceased and that Valve is currently selling off the rest of its "almost sold out" inventory in the US, after selling out completely in Europe. Valve says it will continue to offer support for existing Steam Link hardware. The $50 Steam Link was designed for streaming games from a local
  12. Maker of Steam changes policy to make clear privilege-escalation flaws are in scope. In an attempt to quell a controversy that has raised the ire of white-hat hackers, the maker of the Steam online game platform said on Thursday it made a mistake when it turned away a researcher who recently reported two separate vulnerabilities. In its statement, Valve Corporation references HackerOne, the reporting service that helps thousands of companies receive and respond to vulnerabilities in their software or hardware. The company also writes: We are also aw
  13. But, the gaming company isn't happy with Canonical and will try to work closer with other Linux distributors. When Canonical announced that, beginning with October's Ubuntu 19.10 release, 32-bit -computer support would be dropped, it didn't expect there would be much blowback. It was wrong. Developers and users, especially of Steam games, threw fits. So, Canonical, makers of Ubuntu Linux, reversed course and asserted it wouldn't drop 32-bit software support in Ubuntu 19.10 and 20.04 LTS after all. So, everything's back to normal, yes? No. True,
  14. The one-time ‘Half Life’ developer may end up going it alone against the EU. Valve will reportedly fight recent geo-blocking charges brought against it by the European Union. Citing "people familiar with the matter," Reuters reports that of the six companies that were charged by the European Commission in April, only Valve has decided to fight the commission in court. The other five companies that were charged alongside Valve -- Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media and ZeniMax -- plan to settle with the EU. If the report is accurate and Valve
  15. Commission-free Steam key sales through other stores cut into Valve's bottom line. Enlarge Getty / Aurich Lawson Since Epic started taking a 12 percent cut of sales revenue generated on its new Games Store, much has been made of whether Steam's baseline 30 percent revenue cut is justified. But a new analysis shows that Valve sometimes receives much less than that headline revenue percentage for some of the most popular games on Steam. The reason for the discrepancy is Steam keys, which developers can generate pretty
