Valve Announces Portable Steam Deck PC, Will Have Serious Co-Op Potential

Valve, the company that owns Steam, might not really make games anymore, but it doesn't just operate the Steam storefront, either. In May, an Ars Technica report foretold that a portable Steam device would be happening, and now that forecast has come to pass. Today, Valve announced the Steam Deck, a portable PC that will come in three configurations starting at $399. We expect it to be an excellent way to take co-op Steam games on the go.

Almighty just got even mightier thanks to an update that adds a challenging subterranean Hollows realm to explore.

Phantasy Star Online 2 coming to Steam August 5 with cross-platform co-op

When SEGA’s Phantasy Star Online 2 launched on the Windows 10 Store on May 27, fan excitement was quickly tempered with disappointment over numerous technical issues. Some issues resulted from players having originally disabled or changed Xbox settings during their Windows installations, but others seem to have resulted from an extremely buggy installer. These issues necessitated the popular use of the fan-made PSO2 Tweaker tool, but even that tool couldn’t solve many users’ problems.

Borderlands 3 Available on Steam Today, Spring Roadmap

At PAX East a few weeks ago, Gearbox had some news to share about their popular loot-shooter, Borderlands 3. The six month Epic Games Store exclusivity deal comes to an end today so you can now purchase the title on Steam (yes, purchase; owning it on Epic does not get you the Steam version). It's worth noting that the game will support PC cross-play between the Steam and Epic Games Store versions, and you can transfer saves between the two but it's a manual process. Additional details can be found in the official FAQ.

Coming To Steam, Xbox Game Pass And Current State Of Decay 2 Owners

State Of Decay 2 Juggernaut Edition Announced

PC players who are fans of zombies, rejoice! State of Decay 2, a game you may have had to skip due to it being limited to Xbox One and the Windows game store, is coming to Steam on March 13. Furthermore, the title is also being updated into the Juggernaut Edition, which will bring all 3 add-on packs, additional content, and a number of quality of life improvements ranging from improved controls to bug fixes. The best part is that if you already have State of Decay 2 (whether you bought it or are playing it through Game Pass), your game will automatically become the Juggernaut Edition this Friday.
