  • News Star Wars Battlefront 2's Single Player Campaign Will Last 5 to 7 Hours

    Apparently

    So, Star Wars Battlefront 2 has a single player campaign, and by most accounts, it's looking quite promising -- but how long will it take you to complete? According to producer David Robillard, the story mode will be pretty standard in terms of length, clocking in at around five to seven hours. Robillard told Press Start: "We...

  • News Of Course ANTHEM Will Have a Beta Before Launch

    Why wouldn't it?

    ANTHEM, BioWare's big budget third-person shooter role-playing thing, will be getting a beta at some point before launch. The game's still a while away yet -- it's currently got a vague Fall 2018 release window -- but with projects like this, the developer is always going to be looking to the future and planning things out well in...

  • News Try 10 Hours of Mass Effect: Andromeda for Free on PS4

    Progress carries over, too

    EA and BioWare have slapped a free trial for Mass Effect: Andromeda on the PlayStation Store. The download offers up 10 whole hours of the divisive sci-fi title, so if you've been on the fence, you might want to give it a shot. The trial will be available until the 1st November, so you've got a good few months to think...

  • E3 2017 We Just Got a Little More Hyped for ANTHEM

    Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead writer is working on it

    We just got a bit more hyped for ANTHEM - the gritty sci-fi third person shooter that was revealed at EA's showcase. Why? Well, it turns out that Drew Karpyshyn's working on it. Karpyshyn was lead writer on both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, and he also wrote the Mass Effect expanded universe novels...

  • E3 2017 ANTHEM Is Aiming for a Fall 2018 Release

    Nope, not spring

    Oh, so it turns out that ANTHEM is farther away than we initially thought. The sci-fi shooter from BioWare was shown off during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference a few hours ago, and based on what we saw, the project looked reasonably far along. However, Business Wire has the game pegged for a fall 2018 release, so it's a...

  • E3 2017 Gritty Sci-Fi Open World Shooter ANTHEM Gets First Gameplay

    Mech it happen

    BioWare went ahead with a full gameplay demo of ANTHEM at Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, and it looks pretty cool. There's a definite Destiny vibe here, with the science fiction and the shooting and the co-op and the loot, but again, it looks promising. You can check out the footage above. What do you make of ANTHEM? Suit up...

  • E3 2017 BioWare's ANTHEM Due Spring 2018, Not Exclusive to Xbox

    Important details

    BioWare's brand new intellectual property, ANTHEM, was revealed yesterday during EA's totally-not-E3 press conference. All we got was a very brief teaser trailer, so admittedly we don't have much to say about the project just yet, but what we do know is that it's going to be blown open at Microsoft's show tonight. The fact...

  • E3 2017 Gritty Sci-Fi Title ANTHEM Is BioWare's Next Game

    The makers of Mass Effect are back

    BioWare's new property was revealed earlier at EA's totally-not-E3 showcase via a brief teaser trailer. The game's called ANTHEM, and it appears to be some sort of gritty sci-fi title. It uses the Frostbite engine, and we'll be seeing more of it tomorrow at Microsoft's press conference. Got any first...

  • News Surprise! Mass Effect: Andromeda's Development Was a Mess, Says Report

    Space balls

    For many, Mass Effect: Andromeda was and still is a bitter disappointment. The title launched back near the end of March, and it was met with largely lukewarm reviews and an absolute thrashing from gamers across the internet. Almost three months later and it's barely being talked about anymore. To put it bluntly, Andromeda has...

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda PS4 Patch 1.08 Makes Jaal Bisexual, Fixes a Few Things

    More bang for your buck

    BioWare has detailed Mass Effect: Andromeda's next patch. Update 1.08 doesn't contain the biggest list of fixes that we've ever seen, but there may be a few points of interest for those still playing the game. The headline here is that the patch allows for Angaran squadmate Jaal to be romanced by male Ryder. Previously, Jaal...

  • News EA Slaps a Date on Its E3 2017 Broadcast

    EAsy does it

    Believe it or not, E3 2017 is now only a couple of months away. Gaming's biggest media event opens its doors on the 13th June, but as previously reported, EA won't actually be hosting a press conference at the show this year. Instead, it'll have an "all-new broadcast experience", set to take place on Saturday 10th June. We imagine that...

  • E3 2016 EA Unveils New Program To Help Foster Indie Talent

    Indie apologists queue here

    Perhaps the only surprise at EA's E3 press conference this morning was the firm's announcement of a new program to help support independent developers. Titled EA Originals, the plan is a response to the success of Unravel, and aims to foster talented and unique small developers. In a canned

  • E3 2016 Zoink! Games' 3D Platformer Fe Looks Fetching and Fanciful

    Fe-fa 2017

    In what is becoming an annual tradition, EA wheeled out a nervous indie developer to show off a charming platformer at its E3 press conference today. Fe by Zoink! Games sees you playing as an adorable woodland creature who must collect the songs of the forest. Or something like that, anyway. It must also be said tha

  • E3 2016 Here's Your Annual Mass Effect: Andromeda PS4 No-Show

    Fly into the sun

    Three years, three huge disappointments from BioWare and EA. Once again, the Canadian studio brought virtually nothing of Mass Effect: Andromeda to EA's press conference, turning up to the show with a new behind-the-scenes trailer. Unheard of! To be fair, the video does feature little bits and pieces of gameplay, but there's...

  • E3 2016 FIFA 17 Has a Full Story Mode

    Rising star

    This is quite interesting, we suppose. According to a newly released trailer, FIFA 17 will have a full story mode dubbed The Journey, complete with cutscenes which will feature your own custom player. Okay, so maybe it's a bit cheesy, and some of the character models are rather strange looking, but having a much more involved single...

  • News Mass Effect Developer May Be Branching Out with an Action Game

    BioWary

    Founded over two decades ago, BioWare is a development studio that's become synonymous with the role-playing genre. It's the company behind modern franchises like Dragon Age and Mass Effect, both of which allow you to shape your own story through player choice and interactions with diverse casts of characters. When we think of BioWare, we...

  • News EA Boss: I Absolutely Rejected Battlefield 1

    Good job he changed his mind

    Battlefield 1 is taking the series back in time, to a past without robot limbs and orbital strikes. The game's historic angle has caught the attention of many, but apparently, the title's core concept didn't always seem like a good idea to EA Studios boss Patrick Soderlund. During the publisher's recent investor...

  • News BioWare Confirms Mass Effect: Andromeda will Warp to PS4 in Early 2017

    A galaxy not too far away

    Since earlier this year, we've known that Mass Effect: Andromeda won't be launching in 2016. However, in a statement on the official Mass Effect website, BioWare's general manager Aaryn Flynn has confirmed that the game will ship in "early 2017". Okay, so it's not huge news, but at least the developer's taken the time to...

  • News Consoles Like PS4 Will Die Out Sooner or Later, Reckons EA's Peter Moore

    Here we are again

    One conversation that never seems to end in this industry, the ultimate fate of consoles like the PlayStation 4 is always up for debate. Will similar machines still exist five, ten, or twenty years from now? Or will we be past the point of relying on boxes that sit beneath our televisions? According to EA's always talkative Peter...

  • Rumour Battlefield 5 Is Going to Blow Up Next Week

    Bringing the boom

    Technically, Battlefield 5 hasn't been officially announced yet, but it's looking more and more inevitable that the shooter - which we know is currently in development - is going to be revealed very soon. According to German publication Play3.de, official sources have confirmed that the game's going to be shown next Friday, the...

  • News Titanfall 2 Teaser Trailer Confirms PS4 Release

    Hype thrusters engaged

    Well, we've known for a while now, but it's finally been officially confirmed: Titanfall 2 is coming to PlayStation 4. EA's just launched a teaser trailer online, which reveals that a big gameplay blowout is coming on the 12th June. In other words, the shooter's going to play a big part at the publisher's E3-esque show in...

  • News Mass Effect Andromeda's Main Character Looks like a Mass Effect Character

    Shiny new artwork from BioWare's latest

    It's been a while since we posted some desperate Mass Effect: Andromeda news, so we thought we'd go ahead and share some shiny new renders of the game's main character, who's apparently called Pathfinder. While the renders provide our best look yet at the protagonist, the design comes as no surprise...

  • News EA Is Making an Absolute Killing from Microtransactions

    Ka-ching

    Additional digital content is a big part of business for many a publisher these days. For more niche titles, for example, premium DLC offerings are a good way to rack up some extra dosh, while blockbusters often use DLC packs and season passes to find more success after launch. Okay, so that's a pretty simplistic way of looking at things...

  • Poll Is the Force Strong with the Star Wars Battlefront Beta?

    Pew pew pew

    So, the Star Wars Battlefront beta's been out for about a good few hours now, and we dread to think how many imperials have been cut down by laser fire from across the map. The free download's obviously attracted a lot of attention already, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from DICE's rather authentic tie-in - but what do you...
