PCGamingWiki will soon migrate to a Single Sign On (SSO) system to bridge Wiki and Forum accounts, please read our FAQ.
Valve index has been out for some time now, but it is not listed on articles in any way and there's no dedicated fields for it either.
1. Should "HTC Vive" be renamed into "SteamVR headsets" to include both Vive and Index or should Index be additional entry on the table?
Headsets should be almost interchangeable, hence why valve is selling controllers and lighthouses seperately, however steam store still keeps mentioning vive and index seperately on store pages and mentioning index on articles would be more SEO.
2. With tracked motion controllers, should we indicate specific controllers, rather than just true/false?
Many games are updated to support valve index controllers, but almost as many are not and will give you prompts for htc vive controllers instead. This can also lead into some trouble if the game relies heavily on e.g. touchpad controls. e.g. Payday 2 is impossible to play out of the box with index controllers, even if it fully supports motion controllers.
Congratulations to the Lutris team, who announced on Patreon that they were granted $25,000 from the Epic MegaGrant. In their announcement:
Lutris is an open source gaming platform for Linux that installs and launches games without the hassle of setting up on Linux and without installing system libraries. Lutris includes Linux support for using platforms like GOG, Steam, Battle.net, Origin, Uplay and finally Epic Games Store, which is beginning to gain support on the platform.
Despite this generous grant to a Linux project, it is interesting that Epic Games Store has no announced plans to lauch a native Linux client.
What other noteworthy projects have been given grants by Epic? Should PCGamingWiki apply for an Epic MegaGrant?
Rayman Legends is free to claim on the Epic Games Store - add it to your library before December 6th and it's yours to keep forever.
The game itself utilises Uplay DRM, remember to check out the PCGamingWiki Rayman Legends article for more information.

Epic Games just posted an August update on the recently shipped and upcoming features of the store. Although cloud saves were enabled with the giveaway of Moonlighter and This War of Mine on July 25, which was promptly reflected on the wiki, followed by the creation of the list of games that support EGS save game cloud syncing, more games have become supported since then.
The addition of cloud save support to World War Z and The Sinking City is new and especially important because of the progression loss issues that some of the World War Z players struggled with at launch.
Among the other released features are the support of keyless Humble Bundle integration, product pages UI refresh and game videos hosted by Epic Games.
The more notable announcements were the showcasing of the upcoming library UI redesign and the statement on game time tracking being close to release.
