In a galaxy not so far away

Can't wait for your first taste of Star Wars Battlefront? There's good news for you, then, because the first-person shooter will be landing a PlayStation 4 beta in early October. The developer's keeping many of the major details under wraps for the time being, but we do know that it'll feature three modes and will be...

Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition - The Descent (PS4)

Dragon Age: Inquisition - The Descent (PS4)

Descend no further

We hope that you're not sick of delving into dank and ominous caverns, because Dragon Age: Inquisition's second expansion, The Descent, is a spelunker's wet dream. Taking the Inquisitor and their party down into the Deep Roads – a gigantic network of underground caverns that are home to countless types of dangerous beasties –...

Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition - Jaws of Hakkon (PS4)

Dragon Age: Inquisition -  Jaws of Hakkon (PS4)

Not enough bite for your buck

The Frostback Basin is a melting pot of varied environments, and it's arguably the star of Dragon Age: Inquisition's first expansion, Jaws of Hakkon. It's a gorgeous and vast location that features beaches, bogs, caverns, forests, jungles, mountains, and even islands made of ice. It's also bathed in a constant sunset,...

It Doesn't Matter That EA Access Isn't on PS4, Says Moore

Sony's stance unchanged it seems

It's been about a year since Sony told EA executives to talk to the hand regarding subscription service EA Access, but the publisher doesn't seem all that bothered these days. Speaking with GameSpot, bigwig Peter Moore said it "doesn't matter" that the service is not available on the PlayStation 4 – despite the...

Play Star Wars Battlefront for the First Time in the UK

Also Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Need for Speed, and more

Star Wars Battlefront will be playable in the UK for the first time ever at this year's EGX, it's been announced. In fact, EA Games will be bringing a wad of titles to the Birmingham-based event, including Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Need for Speed, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Not a...

News: EA Doesn't Think You'd Play a Star Wars Battlefront Single Player Campaign

EA Doesn't Think You'd Play a Star Wars Battlefront Single Player Campaign

Data suggests few people play solo, apparently

It doesn't matter if the final product is as bad as Jar Jar Binks, the forthcoming Star Wars Battlefront is going to sell enough copies to fund the construction of a real Millennium Falcon. One could argue, though, that for as fun as the game looks, publisher EA is half arsing it – where is the epic...

News: PS4's Need for Speed Reboot Will Be Online Only

PS4's Need for Speed Reboot Will Be Online Only

But why?

We reckon that the new Need for Speed looks pretty darn rad – especially with those so-bad-they're-good full-motion video cut-scenes. However, there is one downside: the game will be playable online only. Speaking with Official Xbox Magazine – yes, we know – executive producer Marcus Nilsson attempted to explain why that's the case,...

Gamescom 2015: Proof Star Wars Battlefront Will Be the Biggest Game of the Year

Proof Star Wars Battlefront Will Be the Biggest Game of the Year

The force is with EA

There's a lot of chatter about exclusives at the moment, but the Gamescom 2015 awards provide a small reminder of how little these matter in the grand scheme of things. Star Wars Battlefront will leave this year's German convention with no less than five awards, including Best of Show, Best PS4 Game, Best Online Multiplayer...

Gamescom 2015: Need for Speed's Cut-Scenes Will Make You Cringe

Need for Speed's Cut-Scenes Will Make You Cringe

But that's the point

Need for Speed may be about to overtake Until Dawn in the dumb department – and that's a sentence that we never thought we'd type. A new trailer for the forthcoming PlayStation 4 reboot shows off the title's FMV cut-scenes, which are every bit as embarrassingly cheesy as you could imagine. No sign of Razor Callahan yet,...

Gamescom 2015: Pre-Order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Get Your Grass Effect On

Pre-Order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Get Your Grass Effect On

Crazy Dave is BioWare's biggest fan

It's not easy to get people to pay attention to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – after all, the release looks pretty weedy on stage next to Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Star Wars: Battlefront. That said, EA has attempted to pique our interest by announcing some Mass Effect themed content – aptly renamed,...

Unravel Three Minutes of EA's Cute PS4 Puzzle Platformer

Spin a Yarny

Unravel, the upcoming puzzle platformer from Swedish studio Coldwood, continues to look unbearably adorable. A brand new demo shown during EA's big Gamescom 2015 presser showed protagonist Yarny attempting to navigate a borderline photorealistic beach environment. The rising tide makes things difficult for our fabric friend, but by...

Run Away with Fresh Mirror's Edge Catalyst PS4 Footage

Faith no more

Mirror's Edge Catalyst was treated to a little more attention during EA's big Gamescom 2015 press conference this morning than it got at E3 2015, with a full gameplay demo showing various aspects from the February free running foray. In it, we saw protagonist Faith infiltrate a skyscraper, irritate an Andrew Wilson look-a-like, and leg...

Star Wars: Battlefront Brings the Dogfight of Your Dreams to PS4

Flyin' high

As teased earlier in the week, EA has announced Star Wars: Battlefront's flashy Fighter Squadron mode – a dogfighting option which will see you piloting iconic aircrafts such as X-Wings, TIE-Fighters, and, amazingly, the Millennium Falcon online. It's worth stressing that these aren't space battles – they'll take place above the...

Watch EA's Gamescom 2015 Press Conference Right Here

Time for take off

And so our attention turns to EA, the only major publisher hosting a proper press conference at this year's Gamescom. Set to begin at 10:00AM local time, the publisher's promising to bring plenty of Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror's Edge Catalyst to Germany this year – and we can only dream that Mass Effect: Andromeda will join...

What Time Are the EA, Final Fantasy XV, and Call of Duty Gamescom 2015 Streams?

Live and kicking

Over the years, we've gotten used to Gamescom being one of the biggest weeks in the gaming calendar for PlayStation. That's not entirely true in 2015, though, as Sony has opted to forgo its annual press conference at the German show in favour of Paris Games Week a little later in the year. The decision seemed sound at the time,...

Star Wars: Battlefront Fighter Squadron Footage Flies In

TIE die

How can you tell that there's a major video games convention right around the corner? Because publishers are putting out agonisingly short teaser trailers for all of their upcoming wares, of course. We already knew that a new mode would be revealed for Star Wars: Battlefront this week, but now we have a name: Fighter Squadron. As expected,...

News: Star Wars: Battlefront Prepping New Mode for Take Off

Star Wars: Battlefront Prepping New Mode for Take Off

High flyer

The last time that EA attempted to hype up a Star Wars: Battlefront announcement, it turned out to be Team Deathmatch, so we're not getting our hopes up for this new reveal just yet. However, an image on the franchise's official Facebook page showing an X-Wing does hold a little more promise we suppose. It's accompanied by the words:
