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

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...

Rumour: Titanfall 2 Takes One Robotic Stride Closer to PS4

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. While the latter technically published the former’s brand new first-person franchise, it supposedly did so through the EA Partners programme, which was most recently responsible for failed...

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

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publisher has been desperately trying to pick off Activision’s multiformat cash cow ever since Infinity Ward – a studio originally made up of Medal of Honor veterans, we hasten to add – changed the entire first-person arena one poorly balanced...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...

Battlefield 4 Is Finally Getting Tuned Up on PS4

Let's hope this works

If you've been affected by Battlefield 4's rather unstable multiplayer on PlayStation 4, you'll be happy to know that a patch is marching your way to provide support. The update, which includes a number of stability and balance fixes, will hopefully put an end to some of the crippling bugs and glitches that have been plaguing...

Review: Need for Speed: Rivals (PlayStation 4)

Need for Speed: Rivals (PlayStation 4)

Cops 'n' racers

Need for Speed: Rivals rarely wants you to take your foot off the accelerator. Swedish upstart Ghost Games’ debut arcade racer fuses the fast-paced police chases popularised by Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit with the open world pandemonium of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and serves up an emergent online experience that ensures that...

Battlefield 4's PS4 Problems Put DICE's Future Projects on Ice

Got to have Faith

You know that you’ve got it bad when you have to put all of your upcoming projects on hold because the one that you initially released last month doesn’t actually work. Battlefield 4 is a top-notch first-person shooter on the PlayStation 4, but it’s currently riddled with technical issues that are affecting the majority of...

News: PS4 UK Digital Prices Slashed Ever So Slightly by EA

PS4 UK Digital Prices Slashed Ever So Slightly by EA

Still extortionate, though

EA Games’ generosity knows no bounds. Following a backlash over the weekend regarding the eye-watering price points attached to the digital versions of its PlayStation 4 launch titles, the mega publisher has reduced the cost of its catalogue of next generation blockbusters by £3.00 ($4.85) apiece. Now purchasing the...

Review: Battlefield 4 (PlayStation 4)

Battlefield 4 (PlayStation 4)

'Til it goes click

While narratives have never really been DICE's strong suit, Battlefield 4, the next entry in its popular series of shooters, at least takes things in the right direction. While Battlefield 3 delivered an incredibly boring campaign that bordered on dreadful at times, the new entry at least seems like it tried. The story is not...

News: UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit

Back of the net

Unsurprisingly, this week’s UK sales chart is dominated by a certain non-Sony next generation console. With the Xbox One launching in Britain last Friday, a large chunk of this week’s top titles were sold on the Microsoft manufactured machine. That includes FIFA 14, which shot straight to the top of the league after seeing a...

PS4's UK Digital Prices Will Stretch Your Wallet Pretty Wide

Shop around

The price of PlayStation 4 titles in the UK is a topic that hasn’t really been touched on a whole lot in the lead up to launch. We’ve avoided the subject largely because we expected things to settle down shortly before release, but it looks like that’s not going to be the case, and we’re going to be charged a hefty premium at...

You've Spent Too Much Time Playing PS4 Games Already

Take a break

Sony’s next generation console has only been out for a few days, but that hasn’t stopped you from logging an incredible 2.3 million hours of gameplay in various EA titles. Yesterday, an executive at the North American publisher pointed out that one-third of launch games purchased for the PlayStation 4 were developed by
