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...

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...

Gamescom 2015: Star Wars: Battlefront Brings the Dogfight of Your Dreams to PS4

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:

Mirror's Edge Catalyst's Collector's Edition Runs Away with Your Cash

Faith no more

As with every other blockbuster brand, Mirror's Edge Catalyst will be landing a collector's edition to coincide with its release early next year. This isn't one of those affordable ones that comes with a couple of bonus gubbins and a fancy box – instead you'll be forking out $199.99 for the package. Despite the price point, you...

E3 2015: Mirror's Edge Catalyst Will Be More Accessible, But Will Still Reward Skill

Mirror's Edge Catalyst Will Be More Accessible, But Will Still Reward Skill

Faith no more

Mirror's Edge on the PlayStation 3 was great, but few of its fans would deny that it had problems. The combat was probably right at the top of the list, but it also had some really frustrating difficulty spikes. In the series' sophomore outing, Mirror's Edge Catalyst on the PlayStation 4, it will be a little more forgiving – but...

Explore the City of Glass in Its Entirety in Mirror's Edge Catalyst on PS4

Glass whoa

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is not only the next entry in a beloved franchise – it's a new beginning, too. Due out from 23rd February on the PlayStation 4, the sequel will ditch the linear structure of its predecessor, giving you a full sandbox to play with. The title – developed by the ever-busy DICE – will once again see you assume...

Talking Point: Was EA's E3 2015 Press Conference Up Your Alley?

Was EA's E3 2015 Press Conference Up Your Alley?

Electronic arts

EA's been a bit disappointing in the E3 press conference department of late, but it attempted to up its game today. While it had its usual roster of sports games on display, we were most impressed by the likes of Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Need for Speed. The highlight, however, had to be Star Wars: Battlefront, which looks...

You've got to have Faith

Mirror's Edge Catalyst will sprint to the PlayStation 4 on 23rd February in North America and 26th February in Europe, publisher EA announced during its E3 2015 press conference this evening. The game is not a sequel to the original PlayStation 3 title, but instead acts an origin story for Faith. It's also totally open...

May the force be with you

It's the one that you've been waiting for: EA has released the first gameplay footage of Star Wars Battlefront running on a PlayStation 4. In the video we see various troops and vehicles heading into Hoth, as a giant AT-AT Walker takes the focal point of battle. The clip ends with Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, lightsabers...
