Enhanced version of classic action adventure Outlast makes surprising appearance on Steam

Fans of the incredibly ambitious 1999 action adventure Outcast had their hearts broken earlier this year, when a Kickstarter campaign for an HD remake of the game failed to meet its goal.

But all is not lost! An enhanced version of the original titled Outlast 1.1 has popped up on Steam today out of nowhere. It's not quite the total remaster that the Kickstarter was set up for, but it does add a few new bells and whistles, and configures the game to run smoothly on modern PCs.

Carbine Studios has big plans for its sci-fi fantasy MMO Wildstar moving into 2015, and it's keen to share them with fans. Hence this new blog post from the team, detailing exactly what they're working on.

As well as new bits and pieces of content, and some general 'quality of life' improvements, the main thrust of the update plans seem to be focused on making general play more accessible to players of all levels and play-styles.

Anti-war war game (that does actually make sense) This War of Mine has just received a major update, adding a new shelter for your band of desperate civilians to hide in, and the chance to choose your starting group of characters.

Those are the major additions in update 2.1, but as you'd expect there's also a bunch of fixes and balance tweaks, including improvements to animations and NPC behaviour.

Multiplayer shooter Dirty Bomb is coming to Steam

Splash Damage's post-apocalyptic team-based shooter Dirty Bomb is coming to Steam, the developer has announced. It's big news for a game that's fun, but currently held back by low player population - hopefully this will encourage more people to try out the ongoing open beta.

For the unfamiliar, Dirty Bomb is from the same team that developed the excellent Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and maintains some of that game's objective-based gameplay.

Steam customers can no longer trade Gifts across regions

Last month Valve tweaked its Steam Gift policy to make all games purchased as a gift untradeable for 30 days, in an attempt to prevent trade scams.

Now the company has made another big change, namely stopping users from Asia, Eastern Europe and South America from trading Gifts across regions. This is presumably an attempt to prevent customers from buying games on the cheap in in one country, then selling them on to users in another.
