Criterion's Teased Racing Game Has Been Cancelled

Project burnt out after two years of silence

Back at E3 2014, Burnout creators Criterion Games showed some early footage of its multi-vehicle racer, showing players switching mid-race between ATVs, wingsuits, planes, helicopters, jet-skis, and other vehicles, exciting many people. However, it seems that, after two years of uncertainty on the...

Did You Want Space Battles? Star Wars Battlefront VR Has Space Battles

Well, kind of

We were among the disappointed fans when we found out that DICE's Star Wars Battlefront wouldn't have dogfights between X-Wings and TIE Fighters among the stars while taking down Star Destroyers and Corellian Corvettes.

Battlefield 1's Gorgeous PS4 Gameplay Trailer Will Blow Your Mind

World War Wow

EA's press conference today was about as exciting as an appointment with the dentist, but at least Battlefield 1 ended the show on a high note. The title's latest "gameplay trailer" – which we don't 100 per cent believe is representative of the experience that you'll get on a PlayStation 4 – is extraordinary, bringing a Michael...

EA Shows Off New Madden 17 Gameplay Trailer

Let's play some football

EA has shown off a brand new gameplay trailer for Madden NFL 17 using entirely in-game footage at its EA Play press conference. While to the average viewer it appears the same as previous iterations, it seems this year EA have put a greater focus on blocking punts and field goals. The trailer ends on a cinematic shot of...

Did EA's E3 2016 Press Conference Entertain You?

Electronic arts or wet farts?

And with that, the first E3 2016 press conference is under our belts. Never one to follow trends, EA did things a little differently this year, opting to hold its own event aligned with E3 – but technically not part of the convention.
