  • News Battlefield Veterans Will Be Recognised in Battlefield Hardline

    Good cop

    Battlefield veterans will be acknowledged in EA's forthcoming police-themed first-person shooter, Battlefield Hardline. The publisher has announced that anyone with an Origin account who has played Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, or Battlefield 4 will unlock some goodies in the property's brand new outing. Unfortunately, these...

  • News Sadly, There Won't Be Any Dinosaurs in Battlefield Hardline on PS4, PS3

    There will be a raptor mask, though

    Somehow, rumours started circulating overnight that there'd be something more pre-historic in Battlefield Hardline than its visuals – dinosaurs. However, it would appear that the lethal game of Chinese whispers has not culminated in the Jurassic Park/Police Academy crossover that you've always dreamed of –...

  • Rumour Star Wars: Battlefront Will Span the Series' Entire Saga on PS4

    Out of this world

    The more that we think about it, the more that we reckon Star Wars: Battlefront is going to be one of the biggest games of the year. Think about it: the title's due out a month before the new movie, and Disney will likely have ratcheted up the hype to intergalactic levels by that point. Moreover, could EA have possibly picked a...

  • News EA Hints at Huge Positive of Bringing Titanfall 2 to PS4

    Az-u-were

    Colour us surprised: we were pretty confident that the original Titanfall would be at the very least announced for the PlayStation 4 by now. If you go back and listen to the Xbox console exclusivity confirmation, the words used were "for the life of the title" – a wishy-washy statement that didn't seem to preclude a 'Game of the Year'...

  • News Battlefield Hardline's Beta Locks Up Six Million Players

    Did they all find it arresting, though?

    Battlefield Hardline may feel like its operating under the radar a little bit, but the release's recent beta has been an enormous success. Visceral Games' vice president and general manager Steve Papoutsis took to the EA Blog overnight – yes, that's a real thing – to reveal that the first-person shooter's...

  • News EA: Games Are Still Too Hard to Learn

    Don't pull that face

    A top executive from EA Games has suggested that most video games are still too difficult for the average person to learn. We suspect that this statement is going to go down like a lead balloon, but we reckon that chief creative officer Richard Hilleman, who was speaking at the 2015 DICE Summit, may actually have a point. "The...

  • News Battlefield Hardline's PS4, PS3 Beta Has Been Set Free for the Week

    Prison break

    EA Games has put Battlefield Hardline on temporary parole, as it solicits some final feedback ahead of the first-person shooter's release next month. The open beta can be downloaded now on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Europe, but eager cops and robbers in North America may find themselves under lock and key until the...

  • 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...

  • News 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

    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...

  • News 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 EA CEO Thinks the PS4 Will Face Some 'Fairly Stiff Competition'

    EAsy does it

    The PlayStation 4 has sold phenomenally well, this much we know – but recently appointed EA CEO Andrew Wilson isn't certain that the console's continued dominance is a sure thing. Speaking at the Credit Suisse 2013 Technology Conference, Wilson noted that the living room is flooded with competitors. "Our market is evolving at a...

  • News 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

    '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...

  • 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...

  • News 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...

  • News 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

  • News Don't Worry, It's Just the First Titanfall That's Not Coming to PS4

    Well, unless Microsoft opens its cheque book again

    For a game that so few seem to be able to coherently explain why it's so fun, Titanfall sure has rocketed in importance since it was announced earlier in the year. Originally thought to be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, publisher EA Games recently an

  • News Whoa, One Third of PS4 Games Sold Are Developed by EA

    Slam dunk

    We all know that the PlayStation 4 is selling like hotcakes, but a recent report from Electronic Arts' chief financial officer Blake J. Jorgensen reveals that the AAA publisher hasn't done too badly itself. "We had a great weekend of sales relative to the console that looks like the average consumer tie ratio is about three pieces of...

  • News EA Retracts Statement Blaming PS4 Firmware Update for Software Issues

    Passing the buck

    PlayStation 4 problems appear to be escalating as we approach the end of the system's first full day on the market. Connection issues aside, some users are now complaining of crashes in certain software. Earlier today, EA Games uploaded a support page blaming this on the next generation syst

    Review Battlefield 4

    Boom! Shake, shake, shake the room

    Almost every event that you're a part of in Battlefield 4 is punctuated by some sort of demolition or explosion. Pursued by a helicopter? It'll blow up sooner or later. Running up a flight of stairs? They probably won't be there on the way back down. Need to get past an armoured vehicle? Better blast it to bits...

  • News Current Sales of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4 Are Dead in the Water

    Next-gen may not be to blame

    It should come as no surprise that the current-gen versions of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4 are not selling as well as previous entries. After all, who wants to buy a game on an ageing console when they can wait a few weeks for the superior next-gen version? But a recent report from MCV reveals that...
