It's the "will they, won't they" drama that's consuming the 'net now Gran Turismo 5 is actually a shipped product available on store shelves -- will DICE ever confirm the existence of a Mirror's Edge sequel? Last we heard the first-person parkour platformer had been scrapped, but EA's been pretty vocal about the importance of the franchise since then
Now there's perhaps a little more fuel to power..
Hot-on-the-heels of rumours that an in-development Mirror's Edge title has been cancelled, EA has told 1Up that the series is still "important" to them
The publisher, however, refused to comment on rumours that a sequel has been squashed, stating it has "nothing further to announce" regarding the immediate plans of the franchise. Our guess is this: Mirror's Edge 2 was in development at..
Mirror's Edge was a sequel away from perfection
EA and DICE's brilliant first-person parkour title was so unique that it didn't get everything right first time around. We're convinced that with a couple of years additional development, and the benefit of hindsight, Mirror's Edge 2 could have been something magical. But the original launched in 2008 and it's now 2011. A report on V!chaku points out..
A few Battlefield 3 tid-bits have seeped out of this month's Game Informer cover story
The publication reports that once again players will have a choice of four classes, a number executive producer Patrick Bach describes as "the sweet spot". Battlefield 3's squad mechanic are also set to be expanded, though specifics aren't mentioned: "Squads are really easy to set up, but how can..
Watch out Call Of Duty -- EA and DICE have slapped a "fall" release date on the hotly anticipated Battlefield 3 overnight
The game was revealed as GameInformer's cover during the early hours of this morning, and has since been followed by a teaser trailer which you can catch after the jump. While much of the early information is concerned with the PC version of the game (it'll feature 64-player..
Let's get any guessing or mystery out of the way first: EA's mystery first-person shooter title is Battlefield 3
There's no need for speculation, that's fact. Deal with it. In fact, we're so certain it's Battlefield 3, we're not even sure why EA are teasing it. Still, the story stems from EA's financial call last night. CEO John Riccitiello was answering a question relating to Medal Of Honor when..
That's expensive. EA's slapped a $14.99 price tag on the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam expansion pack. They've also dropped us a brand new trailer. But the price - good grief the price. Although, to be fair, you do get a bunch of goodies with it. Check out the trailer after the jump and make up your own mind.
Medal Of Honor has been touted as EA's "Call Of Duty-killer"
While faring well, critically the game hasn't quite lived up to the weight of that kind of expectation. It's still expected to have a strong showing at retail though - and EA's described the game's first day sales as "great". No exact figures were offered, but the publisher did claim that the game was well in position for an..
Just in case you'd forgotten, remember that an exclusive HD re-release of the PS2 classic Medal Of Honor: Frontline is set to ship with new copies of this week's Medal Of Honor reboot
There's a trailer for the re-release above. It's pretty cool actually. You can get more information about the HD remake on the PlayStation Blog.
We've got to be honest - we never thought we'd be quite this excited about the release of Medal Of Honor this week
But we're actually literally itching for our copy to drop through the letterbox. We think it has something to do with the time of year — it's around this time that there's always a big first-person shooter launch. It's normally a Call Of Duty game that's got us craving some online..
Medal Of Honor's multiplayer is a strange beast
We actually think there's a lot to like about it. But at the same time, it's so very familiar. The game doesn't appear to have any personality of its own; and while it's certainly beyond competent, it's also agonisingly akin to Call Of Duty. Our 16-player hands-on demo saw us checking out the game's...
EA's announced that the upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot is the most pre-ordered title in the franchise's history
The franchise started some 11 years ago so it's some record EA are touting. They're also keen to point out that an open-beta for the game's updated multiplayer will kick-star on Monday and run through 'till next Thursday. The game launches on the 15th October here in the UK.
EA's finally detailed the anticipated Vietnam expansion for DICE's popular Battlefield: Bad Company 2 shooter
The package, which is due out this Winter, includes four new maps, six new vehicles, a 60's soundtrack and 15 time-specific weapons. It'll basically add a whole new layer to Bad Company 2's multiplayer, then. No details on the price yet, but...
People didn't really like Medal Of Honor's beta
It was, after-all, a real beta though. Y'know, a beta where feedback was gathered and changes were made. That isn't the case for most betas these days. Still, whatever public reaction might be to the game; EA sure knows how to make it look awesome. Take the trailer above. It looks properly incredible. Sure, it shows a perfect scenario with a perfect..
EA's just released a trailer for the so-called Ultimate Edition of Battlefield: Bad Company 2
The game's shipping to stores across the US as we type, and will hit England on Friday, September 3rd. The pack includes a few extra bits and bobs. Aswell as a copy of Bad Company 2, you'll also receive: the four-player co-op mode Onslaught, Battlefield 1943 and some extra multiplayer gubbins. Needless to..
Most "betas" these days are multiplayer demos
Sure, they might be put in place to stress-test the servers or balance a couple of weapons but largely, they are a demo. Medal Of Honor's beta was not. EA's shared a gigantic list of changes that have been incorporated into Medal Of Honor's multiplayer component since the beta. Tweaks include improved hit detection, crash fixes, balance changes and much..
Disgusting. Angry. Tasteless. These are all the words of Britain's defence secretary, Liam Fox, when describing EA's Medal Of Honor reboot. Apparently he's not too happy that players can opt to fight as the Taliban in the game's multiplayer component — it's very "un-British" apparently. Its shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the..
Hands up if you thought the Medal Of Honor reboot was going to be a weak Call Of Duty rip-off? A few of you, fair enough
You're all right of course, except for the weak part. This debut single-player campaign footage is surprisingly good. Sure, it's all a bit "dudebro", but whatever. The shooting looks good, and the visuals are pretty stunning for an Unreal Engine game. Perhaps this will..
This trailer made us a little sick in our mouth
As if Medal Of Honor didn't already look like a big "USA! USA!" patriot jerk-off fest, EA's enlisted on the help of America's favourite pop-rock band, Linkin Park, to make it more-so. This new Medal Of Honor trailer is mostly live-action, directed by the "creative" eye of Park's DJ Joe Hahn. There are stars and stripes, crying mums..
EA's confirmed that those who purchase the limited edition version of Medal Of Honor will be given the opportunity to play Battlefield 3 within 12 months of MoH's release
Anyone who owns special package of Medal Of Honor will be invited to the beta, which will be available for a limited time. The limited edition includes a bunch of in-game goodies, including weapons (MP-7, shotguns) and camouflage..
Just like Eminem and Call Of Duty; Linkin Park's teamed up with Medal Of Honor to provide some hard-hitting tunes that will really make you think about the consequences of war
Either that, or make you fist-pump as you fire off rounds of your AK-47. The embedded video - which features Linkin Park's "Catalyst" - is a teaser for a new trailer due August 1st. Apparently it'll feature a mix of..
EA confirmed during their press conference last night that their upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot would be getting a multiplayer beta starting June 21st
Players will get access to two maps and will be playable on the PlayStation 3. EA also revealed a new rewards system for fans of shooter games — the "Gun Club" will provide members with benefits including in-game content, early access to..
So, in what's totally not a knee-jerk reaction to the Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Vietnam setting, EA's announced a new expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 which takes players to - you guessed it - Vietnam
We'll update you with details as soon as we get them. EA's also announced a new "Gun Club" service, designed to reward those who...
EA's announced today that they are adding a four-player online co-op mode to their hit shooter, Battlefield: Bad Company 2
The mode's called "Onslaught". Apparently it'll be playable on four maps - Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay - with each being redesigned with new lighting, time of day and vehicles. Apparently each map will have a different gameplay focus. No..
Not only does this latest Medal Of Honor trailer feature people jumping out of helicopter things, it also features heart-felt communication between a working soldier and his Missus
Altogether now: aww. Presumably the heart-felt message was recorded moments before shooting people in the face. Because, y'know, that's just what video games are like innit.
How would you like to play a Call Of Duty game that's not got Call Of Duty on the box? No - not Respawn Entertainment's new project, nor the half-hearted Modern Warfare 2 (which totally had Call Of Duty on the box)
We're talking about EA's Medal Of Honor reboot, which couldn't look more like a Call Of Duty game if it ran out into the street naked screaming: "I'm a Call Of Duty game."..
SEGA's Yakuza 4 has topped the Japanese software charts for this week, shifting a hearty 384,000 copies
The numbers are a little lower than those of Yakuza 3, but still extremely respectable. Elsewhere, the God Of War Collection managed to place 13th in the Japanese software charts this week, with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 not far behind it in 15th.
Electronic Arts Los Angeles' Creative Director Richard Farrelly has confirmed that their Medal Of Honor reboot's development is being led on the Playstation 3
Meaning it will maximise what Sony's system can do. Were leading on PS3, weve developed the game on PS3, Richard told CVG. Were working hard to deliver the exact same experience across all platforms. I think for me the most..
Stop me if you've heard this one before: a military, multiplayer shooter has sold a ton of copies in Europe and the US
That's right: EA's Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has mustered sales of over 2.3 million over the last couple of weeks. Interestingly, aswell as the hard sales figures, EA has provided some more light-hearted facts pertaining to the game's success, such as 81 billion points racked up..
Oh look - it's a new trailer for Medal Of Honor
It features guns, shooting and some American-dude talking about war and stuff. It looks a lot like Call Of Duty. Which is actually a good thing we suppose. Though we kind of wish someone would make a shooter about big monsters and stuff instead of military men. Oh well.
DICE has announced that anyone who's redeemed their VIP code for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will receive mode updates for both the Arica Harbour and Laguna Presa maps on March 30th
That's the same day as the XBOX 360 version of Modern Warfare 2 gets new multiplayer maps. Interesting. Anyway, if you've redeemed your VIP code, you'll totally get this...
EA's released some new screenshots for their Medal Of Honor reboot which you can catch over at Joystiq
We'd love to offer some insightful commentary, but they look exactly like you'd expect them to. It's Medal Of Honor in a post-Call Of Duty era.
EA has announced that between the Playstation Network and XBOX Live, over 3
5 million people have downloaded and tried out the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 demo. Which indeed bodes well for the DICE developed title which is set to launch next month. EA will hope they can replicate a degree of Modern Warfare 2's success.
EA's released a few new screens of their Medal Of Honor reboot
The full set of shots can be seen at Kotaku, but before you hit the link, just stop and think for moment. How do you imagine Medal Of Honor might look? Got an image in your head? Yep, it looks like that.
Despite initial reports that the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 demo would only hit the European PSN tomorrow, EA has announced that it'll also hit the US PSN too
Hurrah. The multiplayer demo is now due in both the European and American regions tomorrow. Erm... And that's all.
The executive producer of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Charles Magnusson, has told Eurogamer
de</a> that he believes Battlefield: Bad Company 2's multiplayer is simply "better" than Modern Warfare 2."I certainly respect our colleagues and they have made a first-class title on the legs, but I think we simply have a better, richer multiplayer experience. Exactly what we wanted..
DICE has confirmed that the Playstation 3 will get its second-dose of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as of next week (that's February 4th, folks)
Sadly Americans, that February 4th applies only to Europeans, as those of you in the land of NA will have to wait until February 11th. The game's due in early March.
It seems no-one at EA can talk without mentioning that Modern Warfare 2 is in their cross-hairs
Medal Of Honor is already being touted as a Call Of Duty contender; and it seems EA excpect the same from Battlefield: Bad Company 2. DICE's Robbie Bach explained to GamerZines:A lot of people ask us about Modern Warfare and they compare us to Modern Warfare, so when we answer questions about that it..
Question dodging - the best way of keeping your job and avoiding a good telling off
Take the comments made by DICE's Karl-Magnus Todesson for example when he was asked about Mirror's Edge 2:I cant really comment on that because we havent officially announced that were working on itBut we were very happy and proud of Mirrors Edge one as a studio, so we are thinking about what we are..
As promised, GameTrailers has revealed the world-first footage of DICE's upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2's single-player campaign
It looks a lot more serious than the last one. But also rad. Real rad. <object id="gtembed" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="468" height="380"..
If you, like us, are rather excited to see just how Battlefield: Bad Company 2's campaign is shaping up, then you best jump over to GameTrailers where there'll be the first footage of the game's single-player campaign. Of course, if you can't be bothered to jump onto GameTrailers, chances are we'll post the video here when it's live. Don't say we don't do anything for you, yo.
British retailer GAME (the ones with the purple logo) have outed the date of Battlefield: Bad Company 2's scheduled demo
According to their listing, the demo's due to start on February 4th, 2010. It'll run for three weeks on the Playstation Network. Officially, there are no details from DICE nor EA; but we're taking this date as fact, or close to the measure.
EA Europe's Jen Uwe Inat has described March's launch of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as the first "strong attack on Call Of Duty" in an interview with MCV
In March we will launch Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which is our first strong attack on Call Of Duty, he told the publication, The shooter space is one we dont want to give up. Its an important genre and we were the number one. So we..
You know what, it's got to a point where we could talk and talk about Battlefield: Bad Company 2, but honestly, do you really need us to? Hit play and prepare to be astounded
Modern Warfare what?
We know we said it does, but it actually doesn't
Blah blah. EA has clarified that their Medal Of Honor reboot doesn't actually have two separate single-player campaigns, more over it has one seamless campaign with multiple playable characters. A bit like that other franchise. Oh darn, what's it called? Oh yeah - Call Of Duty. Surprise![/strong]"We want to clarify that Medal of Honor will have..
We got more details on EA's, ahem, modern warfare reboot of Medal Of Honor via the Lost Gamer today
The news comes as part of a feature in the latest GamesMaster magazine, where an un-named Tier 1 (a real, but strictly secret military agency) representative explained that the game is all about honor (or "honour" to Brits like us) and respect.After speaking with EA, we have full..
According to information just stuck up on CVG's website (from the upcoming OXM magazine), the upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot will feature multiple playable characters, aswell as tactical gameplay that has you taking out lights in order to approach situations in night vision
Amazingly the game will also feature sprinting and knife melee. More in the latest issue of OXM (sigh) and presumably online..
EA has released the first trailer for their modern-warfare reboot of the Medal Of Honor franchise
The scattered gameplay trailer reveals some promising footage. Consider us stoked. Trailer after the jump. <object id="gtembed" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="468" height="380"..
If you're more excited about Medal Of Honor than a cheese and pickle sandwich, then you should probably check out the game's recently launched website
Aside from some pretentious quotes and typical social stuff, the website gives a big hint on the games release date ("Fall 2010"). Oh, and you can preorder it now if you want.
EA's big boss-man John Riccitiello has told Kotaku that he reckons Mirror's Edge totally deserves a sequel
Were still working through things like how to best deal with Mirrors Edge 2, he said. There are some things we learned about that game. It was, I think, a massively innovative product. To be honest with you, I think its a game that deserves to come back. Innovation doesnt mean..
EA's big boss dude John Riccitiello has told Kotaku that EA's relaunch of Medal Of Honor is an attempt to win back the FPS crown from Activision
Im not saying its going to happen tomorrow, but in the way that Activision sort of alternates sequels of Modern Warfare and Call of Duty and owns the leadership position in FPS , between Medal of Honor and Battlefield, I want it back, he said..
Take this Call Of Duty
EA just announced that their reboot of the Medal Of Honor franchise is coming in 2010 to the Playstation 3. The game is a modern-day shooter set in Afghanistan and centres on the Tier 1 Operator, a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle." Apparently, the team at EA have been working with Tier..
Remember how Mirror's Edge was so close to being awesome? Yeah, a sequel could fix all the problems and help the franchise achieve its potential
It looks like that sequel is indeed on the cards. An EA DICE lighting artist's profile lists work on two projects, including Battlefield 3 and, ahem, Mirror's Edge 2. [Update: Looks like the offending material has been removed]
At this point, if DICE can match Infinity Ward in general gunplay, balancing and lightning matchmaking, we absolutely have no qualms suggesting that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 might top Modern Warfare 2
It's a huge task, the best parts of Infinity Ward's shooter are the gunplay, but Battlefield possesses the "big war" feel that Modern Warfare 2 can't even get close to. Very impressive..
As expected, just ahead of Activision's "big night", EA has released a few new shots of the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Which predictably look rather amazing. We just feel like EA should let Activision have their moment for now - seeing as by the time Battlefield: Bad Company 2 comes around everyone will have shut the hell up about MW2.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 continues to look like the go-to shooter of next year (sorry MAG) with just an epic sense of battle going on
Remember, if you're a Playstation 3 owner you'll be able to check out the game from November 19th thanks to an exclusive beta on Sony's platform. Hurrah.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will get its own Playstation 3 exclusive beta launching this coming November 19th
Details are scarce right now, but the beta will come as part of a preorder bonus (sigh!) with selected retailers. Check the list here for all the names of participating retailers. The beta will focus on one of Battlefield: Bad Company 2's new...
EA have told Blend Games that details about a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 demo will arrive, like, this week
No prizes for guessing whose thunder EA would like to steal. Seriously though, no prizes. We got nothing. Nadda. Go away.
We know all anyone can think about is Modern Warfare 2 when it comes to first person shooters
But blimey, this Battlefield: Bad Company 2 trailer is absolutely breath-taking. Graphically it doesn't look far off Killzone 2, and the epic scale of a typical Battlefield game looks to be in tact. In short, if you've seen nothing on Battlefield: Bad Company 2 yet, you should watch the above trailer.
DICE have just confirmed they will launch Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on March 5th in Europe/March 2nd in America
They describe the game as true all out war and the definitive multiplayer game available. They even cited their respect for the Call Of Duty franchise, essentially claiming Battlefield is better.
Electronic Arts have announced that their download-only competitive multiplayer game Battlefield 1943 has broken a host of digital download records
Combining the release of the Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 version the game has sold over 600,000 copies, breaking download sales on both platforms."We are honoured by the reception that the game has...
Who loves Battlefield 1943? We do
The weapons feel great don't they? Presumably you'll want to use those weapons in the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2. No problemo, a Tweet from the official Battlefield Twitter suggests that the sniper, rifle and machine gun will all make a return in Bad Company 2. It's possible the weapons may be a bonus for...
Isn't life funny? You may have noticed we've been away this past week
And as such we've been out of contact with our Playstation. One thing we were thinking about buying when we got back though was the Mirror's Edge DLC which released a few months ago. Well Europeans, if like us you've been dreaming of more Mirror's Edge while on holiday, perhaps...
Come on Playstation 3 people
Even with the worst Battlefield 1943 server problems happening on the XBOX side (although PSN isn't exactly flaw-free — we can testify) they still lead the scoreboards by about 2:1. The scoreboards are tracking all the kills on the Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 versions so that when each side hits 43 million a new...
Battlefield 1943 is the perfect example of being a victim of its own success
The XBOX Live launch yesterday was compounded with bricked servers and connection problems. Rumours are that since its XBOX launch yesterday morning the game has sold a whopping 70,000 copies, which is pretty impressive for a download release. We've just bought our PSN copy...
Mirror's Edge had one of the best graphical styles and concepts in years
Sadly, somewhere along the way the execution was a little awry. What should have been a huge release essentially got lost in the shuffle. Thankfully, there is a sequel on the way. While somewhat disappointing for EA, VP of EA Europe Patrick Soderlund has confirmed a sequel is in the works."You will see another Mirror's..
Some photographers are really good
They blur the lines between real life and not-so-real-life. Cue Jesse James Allen and his crew, who've literally brought Mirror's Edge to life with this outstanding photoset. Check it all out here.
Those of you who enjoyed Mirror's Edge on the PS3 late last year might be pleased to hear that EA are to give you people who bought the PS3 version and exclusive time trial map to tide you over until the full DLC hits in February
Watching the video teaser made our eyes hurt.
There's no denying the comparisons between Mirror's Edge and 1984
It's just a futuristic version. Let's face it - Orwell's vision didn't quite come true but if we look further into the future we can see the same ideals just in a different world. Orwell's vision is carried forward in Mirror's Edge where the government confines and censors information...
