Great news, but I hope its a Steam release.

Found it.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1151640/Horizon_Zero_Dawn_Complete_Edition/

What?! No exclusive devil's deal with Epic?

Nope per an update to the Steam Distribution Agreement in September last year.

"Delivery. Company shall submit the Applications to Steam for release no later than the first commercial release of each Application or Localized Version, or, if already commercially released as of the Effective Date, within (30) days of the Effective Date. Thereafter, Company shall submit to Steam any Localized Versions and Application Updates (in beta and final form) when available, but in no event later than they are provided to any other third party for commercial release. Company shall provide these copies in object code form, in whatever format Valve reasonably requests."

Once a company has agreed to "deliver" their game to Steam for launch the files must be submitted to Steam before it's release (or 30 days after signing up to the program). Updates must also never happen later than on other platforms. The link above shows this under the "Sign SDA" tab when a publisher signs up to join the SDA program.
So there's now no way to withdraw from the distribution contact? What did the wording say before?

I bought and played this on my PS4 PRO. After the reviews come in and show it is a safe buy, I am repurchasing it.

Why wouldn't it be safe to buy? You mean if it's a crappy port?

That trailer gave me a seizure.

Are people still complaining about how crappy the CoD engine is?
That trailer was actual gameplay from a twitch streamer and it was her first time ever playing cod. She normally streams Minecraft.

How will a free game be monetized?

Up to 150 players, maybe CIG should license this engine.

I'll say this: Battlefield trailers are much cooler.

Way to beat a dead worm.

I actually like this series, and will probably pick this up at some point if they offer something innovative, like VR or RTX.

Is there a game with a "real point"? The purpose is fun, it certainly has about the same story as Factorio more of a story than Minecraft but I have thousands of hours in both of those games.

Right, how many people play Skyrim / Oblivion for the main quest vs. how many go off to do their own thing in the sandbox? In all my run throughs of Bethesda games, I've never once finished the main quest.

The sandbox is the game. Like back when we were kids and used the sand to just build what we imagined.

And Satisfactory is the game I invested most time into over the last year. I would say about 200 hours?

And yes, I know I am addicted to it.

Meh, 200 hours is just a dalliance, not an addiction. I have a friend with 4500+ hours in Civ 5.

And he has a family and a full time job.

What? Are you saying the ratio of people not playing raytraced Minecraft is equivalent to those who played Q2 in software render? I doubt it's anywhere close.

No, I literally knew of no one onlline or off who played Q2 in software mode. Q1, obviously yeah.. but everyone I knew who do Q2 had Voodoo.

Pretty sure that most of us bought Voodoos just to play Quake2.

I guess I'm the weird one because I totally remember the blocky models. The trailer does almost nothing to me for nostalgia. We didn't have that lighting, wtf is a "shader" anyways lol.

There are 2 kinds of people in the world: those who played quake 2 on software renderer, and those who played it on openGL. I'm the former. The static lighting baked into every surface, being able to see every texture because shadows didn't really exist, appreciating the blocky almost voxel-like models is what made those early 3D games so memorable.

To me Black Mesa looks like a great remaster, but it's lacking the emotional palette that's drilled into my memory. Still gonna beat it once I get back from this cruise tho.

You're going on a cruise?? You've been reading the news, haven't you?

And on Steam the hardware recommendations are... GONE. I knew something was off here.
The lazy devs must have pushed the big red easy button that makes the game engine moar multi-threaded.
Now even a 2-core duo can crush doom.

Time to hit the weights there Blue!

Here's a minimalist workout to get you started.

Also, you're like the doggo grandfather: get the kids for a few hours week without all the meal cooking and diaper changing!
