  • News Titanfall 2 Is Starting to Pop Up in Shops

    Dropping a titan on PS4 this time

    It looks like Titanfall 2 will be announced imminently, as eagle-eyed NeoGAF users have noticed that the title is starting to appear in shops. An image of a GameStop display stand shows placeholder art from the forthcoming sequel nestled curiously atop a PlayStation 3 shelf. That's probably not an indication of...

  • Rumour Could Battlefield 5 Whisk You Back to World War I?

    War never changes

    Here's an interesting rumour: Battlefield 5 may take place during World War I. That, at least, is what one Swiss retailer thinks, listing the game as a "multiplayer tactical shooter" set during the aforementioned time period. World of Games – the store in question – has since edited the page, but has left in a 26th October...

    Review Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

    Behind enemy vines

    Popcap has taken control of the plantation again with a sequel to the much-loved Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. We really liked the original release, praising its ability to "stay true to its roots" while still offering an olive branch to new audiences by "switching up the franchise's familiar format". But by returning to the...

  • News Star Wars Battlefront Powers Up with New Map and Mode

    Wookie here

    Star Wars Battlefront's doing the whole "update" thing today, with its February patch bringing both new content and fixes for existing issues.

    Green, green grass of dope

    Critics have started slathering fertiliser on top of their Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 reviews, and we're starting to see the fruits of their labour. A handful of American sites have published reviews for the under-the-radar floral-based foray today, and because we haven't got our copy yet, we've planted them...

    Review Unravel

    No strings attached

    Pretty much from the moment that Coldwood Interactive's creative director, Martin Sahlin, took to the stage during EA's E3 2015 press conference, we had a good feeling about Unravel. Sure, Sahlin was very visibly nervous, but it was in an endearing way, and if anything, made our early impressions of the game even more positive...

  • Round Up Unravel PS4 Reviews Reveal EA's Epic Yarn

    String thing

    Yarny, the now iconic Unravel protagonist, stole hearts at E3 last year – and he's about to, well, unravel his inaugural yarn on your PlayStation 4. EA opted not to send us this one, so you're going to have to make do with other assessments until we post our own. The response seems mixed, mind – as you may have anticipated...

  • News Titanfall 2 Will Feature a Grounded, Dirty Single Player Campaign on PS4

    Where science meets magic, apparently

    Unlike its predecessor, Titanfall 2 will feature a single player campaign. That's according to an article penned by a Forbes contributor, who spoke with lead writer Jesse Stern. If accurate, the plot promises a modern re-imagining of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space. "What inspires...

  • News Amy Hennig's Star Wars Is Still in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

    Jabba the Gutted

    Upon leaving Naughty Dog, the mastermind behind Uncharted, Amy Hennig, started work at Visceral Games, where she's developing a brand new Star Wars game. But speaking to shareholders, publisher EA has warned that it may yet be a few years away. "We are obviously announcing that we are investing in some action-based SKUs by...

  • News Titanfall 2 to Take the PS4 by Storm Prior to April 2017

    But have you seen it?

    Remember when Titanfall was billed as this revolutionary, mind-bogglingly amazing exclusive that was going to bless us all with its Biblical brilliance? Yeah, consumers kinda dropped a titan on that big load of bunk. But we're being a bit unkind: the game was good – very good, in fact – but like so many new properties it...

  • News Mass Effect Andromeda Will Crash Land on PS4 Soon

    Geth in

    Expect aliens, dialogue wheels, and interspecies bonking fairly soon, as Mass Effect Andromeda is travelling at the speed of light to a PlayStation 4 near you. EA has confirmed as part of its dreadfully dull investor's meeting that the space-based role-playing game is just one mass relay away from entering your machine – or, to put that in...

  • News EA Withdraws from E3 2016 Showfloor

    Opts for its own event instead

    This week has been packed to the rafters with unexpected announcements, and here's another headline that we weren't anticipating: Electronic Arts will not be present on the show floor at E3 2016.

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda Is in a Playable Form Right Now

    Still on target for late 2016

    We'll be the first to admit that this isn't a huge slice of news - especially when it originates from a series of BioWare employee tweets - but it would appear that Mass Effect: Andromeda is now playable, at least to some degree. In other words, the game's development cycle is supposedly going smoothly. "Just...
