Take Battlefield 4's Multiplayer for a Free Twenty Hour Flyover on PS3

US only, unfortunately

Now, before anyone gets too excited, Battlefield 4 will not be joining the Instant Game Collection on the PlayStation 3 any time soon. Instead, EA has opted to unlock the explosive shooter's multiplayer mode for a limited time in the coming days. If you're a PlayStation Plus member and live in North America, simply head over...

In Theory, Could Titanfall Drop a Bot on PS4?

Sizeable speculation

The advent of the so-called industry insider – forum posters who build up a reputation among online communities such as NeoGAF for spilling the beans on secret information – means that the rumour mill is harder to navigate than ever these days. It’s always been difficult to pick the real leaks from the rubbish, but the...

EA to Bring New Titanfall Experiences to Players Worldwide

Could the publisher drop a titan on PS4?

Speaking as part of a largely uneventful investors meeting – seriously, who knew that big numbers could be so darn uninteresting? – EA Games gaffer Andrew Wilson reiterated that the publisher has renewed its contract with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, and is planning to release new entries in...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA World Cup Falls to Respawn's FPS

Runners up

Enforcing stereotypes about the British and the beautiful game, there are two soccer simulations in the top five of this week’s UK sales charts. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil sprinted out of the blocks into second, though it couldn’t topple long-running frontrunner Titanfall. Meanwhile, FIFA 14 landed a Champion’s League spot in...

Uncharted PS4 Star Todd Stashwick Teams Up with Amy Hennig on Star Wars Title

Unstoppable force

In a head scratching turn of events, Uncharted PS4 actor Todd Stashwick has joined ex-Naughty Dog employee Amy Hennig at Visceral Games in order to co-write the Dead Space developer’s upcoming Star Wars title. The actor – who is perhaps best known for playing Ash Murphy in Justified and Dale Malloy in The Riches – most...

You Won't Have to Pay for Any Additional Party Members in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Thank the Maker

Canadian developer BioWare is no stranger to fan backlash and general gamer outrage, but with the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition, the studio is striving to hit all of the right notes in order to win back the series' somewhat fractured audience. Speaking to the Official Xbox Magazine, creative director Mike Laidlaw confirmed that...

The Force Is with Uncharted's Amy Hennig as She Swaps Drake for Skywalker

Luminary to oversee new Star Wars project

Visceral Games’ underrated survival horror series Dead Space may be deader than its name suggests, but that’s not stopping the Electronic Arts owned studio from soldiering on with an even bigger sci-fi brand. Rumours have connected the company to Star Wars for some time now – and they have been...

Titanfall 2 Takes One Robotic Stride Closer to PS4

Mech it happen

The relationship between Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment and mega company EA Games is more confounding than a magic eye puzzle.

Battlefield 4 Would Like You to Know All About the Need for Speed Movie

In a spin

Like it or not, advertising is becoming a part of console gaming. Sony may have been eager to avoid it on the PlayStation 3’s dashboard, but the ‘What’s New’ area of the PlayStation 4 is packed with promotions for upcoming titles and films. And it’s only a matter of time before that section gets stuffed with Axe deodorant and...

Opinion: EA Found Its Call of Duty Killer, and Committed a Titanic Mistake

EA Found Its Call of Duty Killer, and Committed a Titanic Mistake

Bracing for a fall

To say that EA is obsessed with Call of Duty would be an understatement. The publisher has been desperately trying to pick off Activision’s multiformat cash cow ever since Infinity Ward – a studio originally made up of Medal of Honor veterans, we hasten to add – changed the entire first-person arena one poorly balanced...

Unannounced Need for Speed Title Canned as Focus Turns to Battlefield

Not fast enough

With the multi-million selling first-person favourite Battlefield standing toe-to-toe with genre juggernaut Call of Duty, EA has chosen to focus its efforts on the modern military brand – but not without some casualties. Ghost Games UK, which aided production on Need for Speed: Rivals, has been hit by layoffs over the past few...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Flaunts Its Consistency with Lengthy Spell at Summit

Top of the league

There’s not an ounce of Manchester United in EA Sports' soccer simulation FIFA 14 – after all, the multiformat release actually seems capable of stringing a couple of good results together. Yet again, the footy favourite has dribbled to the top of the UK sales charts, mocking the competition like a freshly converted Arsenal...
