Valve removes controversial school-shooting simulator from Steam

Last week, controversial FPS Active Shooter debuted on Steam, pitting players in the shoes of a school shooter tasked with taking down as many people as possible. Valve has since responded to the criticism that the title has drawn, removing it from the platform.

Active Shooter arrived in the wake of Santa Fe High School shooting in Texas just one-week prior, causing mass outcry against the title. Demands from anti-gun charity The Infer Trust have proven fruitful, causing Valve to launch an investigation into the title, alongside developer Revived Games and publisher Acid.

Valve has since removed all titles from both the developer and publisher, citing creator Ata Berdiyev as a “troll” with “a history of customer abuse, publishing copyrighted material, and user review manipulation” in an interview with Kotaku.

This isn’t the first time that Berdiyev has faced consequences on the platform, as Valve has removed the creator from Steam when he was previously operating under ‘[bc]Interactive’ and ‘Elusive Team’.

Valve’s reasoning behind Berdiyev’s exile from the platform seems to relate more to his business practices and previous offenses than that of the controversial content, which could be the reason that the similarly controversial Hatred is still available for purchase.

“The broader conversation about Steam’s content policies is one that we’ll be addressing soon,” Valve describes moving forward from the debacle. One this is clear, however, and that is Valve refusing “to do business with people who act like this towards customers.”

KitGuru Says: It seems odd to me that a repeat offender on the platform would draw attention to themselves with such a controversial title. If made by a more reputable developer, was Active Shooter something you would have considered purchasing?

2 news vids about it



As a fan of the Postal series (apart from 3 obviously) & Hatred I'm rather dissapointed that I only heard of this with the news its gone from Steam, may have to try to find it elsewhere to try out, this Washington Post vid just makes it look fun

Just Cause 4 confirmed, thanks to early Steam advertisement

Image

Just Cause 4 definitely exists, and it's definitely coming to Steam. We were led to expect as much thanks to a leaked Walmart document last month, but now an advertisement for the game has appeared prematurely on Steam.

Kotaku spotted the advertisement first (embedded above). Not long after, Wario64 posted the image on Twitter. According to the former, clicking the advertisement only leads to the Steam front page, and there's not currently a store listing for the game. The ad wasn't delivered to me when I logged into the Steam client, so it could have been removed already.

It's the latest in a series of pre-E3 leaks, most of which can be traced back to that bothersome Walmart list. Rage 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey and a new Splinter Cell game were among the highlights of that leak, with Splinter Cell the only major title we've yet to have verified from another source.

Whatever the case, here is a handy list of the E3 2018 press conferences. Square Enix's conference takes place at 10am Pacific on Monday (6pm BST, 3am AEST), so we'll likely get confirmation then.
