  • News Battlefield V's Microtransactions Are for Cosmetics Only, DICE Promises

    Developer outlines in-game purchases

    Battlefield V is, frankly, looking a bit messy heading into launch. Recently, DICE even produced a quick guide to explain how its new WW2 shooter all stacks up, such is the fragmented nature of its release. In case you thought it couldn't get much more complicated, the developer is back to talk about currencies,...

  • News Battlefield V's Battle Royale Mode Firestorm Coming March 2019

    Won't be there for launch

    Battlefield V is set to arrive in just under a month's time on 20th November, and EA has mapped out some of the updates coming to the game post launch. Interestingly, this includes Firestorm, the WW2 shooter's equivalent of the wildly popular Battle Royale. The mode, which is largely being developed by Criterion, won't be...

  • News Catch a Glimpse of New War Stories in Battlefield V Single Player Trailer

    Lone soldier

    If you're unhappy with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's lack of single player campaign, Battlefield V has just flaunted its solo offering. War Stories makes a return from Battlefield 1, this time highlighting several untold tales from World War 2. Check out the new trailer above. Here's the official blurb from EA: "In Nordlys, resist German...

  • News Battlefield V Single Player to Be Unveiled Tomorrow

    Play the objective

    The new Call of Duty has arrived, which can only mean the new Battlefield isn't far behind.

  • News EA Is Considering Free-to-Play Games After Fortnite's Success

    Who's next?

    During EA's most recent earnings call, CFO Blake Jorgensen stated that the company is "interested in experimenting" with free-to-play games. This, of course, follows on from the gigantic success of Fortnite -- a title that was brought up numerous times during the presentation. Jorgensen was asked whether a game like...

  • News EA Didn't Force BioWare to Make ANTHEM, Says Former Dev

    BioWare wanted to do it

    It's no secret that EA isn't exactly held in high regard by gaming enthusiasts here on the internet. When BioWare announced that it was creating something completely new in the form of ANTHEM -- a game that appears to be a far cry from the developer's usual RPG-based output -- many onlookers suggested that EA had "forced" the...

  • E3 2018 ANTHEM Won't Have PvP, Can Be Played Single-Player, Is Always Online

    All the details

    So, ANTHEM is starting to look a lot like Destiny, but unlike Bungie's divisive sci-fi shooter, ANTHEM won't actually have any kind of competitive multiplayer component. Speaking to Game Informer, BioWare's Mark Darrah confirms that the game will only feature friendly co-op play when it comes to online shenanigans. You'll also be...

  • E3 2018 Jedi: Fallen Order Is EA's Next Star Wars Game, Launching Late 2019

    Forced

    Although we didn't actually get to see the game in any capacity during EA's conference, it's now confirmed that the publisher's next big Star Wars title will be called Jedi: Fallen Order. And yes, as if the name didn't give it away, you'll be playing as a Jedi, which means lightsabers and all that. Fallen Order is actually Respawn...

  • E3 2018 First Proper ANTHEM Gameplay Features Big Damage Numbers

    Rumble in the jungle

    Well, here's our first real look at ANTHEM in gameplay form. BioWare showcased around four minutes of the title during EA's EA Play press conference, and the footage gives us a decent enough idea of how the third-person shooter will function. It's got a bit of exploration, some action, and a brief look at the various...

  • E3 2018 ANTHEM Launches on PS4 in February 2019

    Suit up

    BioWare's co-op enabled third-person shooter ANTHEM got a confirmed release date at EA's EA Play press conference, and as promised earlier in the year, it'll be launching in the first quarter of 2019. We actually got a "deep dive" of ANTHEM during the rather dire presser, with members of the BioWare team going over some details about the...

  • Guide What Time Is EA's E3 2018 Press Conference?

    And what to expect

    Ah, good old Electronic Arts. Despite being one of the world's biggest video game publishers, EA can never seem to get its E3 press conferences right. For a few years now, the company has splintered from the Los Angeles event in order to host its own "we promise this has nothing to do with E3" showcases, but everyone still...

  • Feature EA's Best and Worst E3 Moments of the PS4 Generation

    Taking the bad with the good

    The EA showcase has been an E3 mainstay for generations now, but its conference always goes one way or the other. In recent years, it has been synonymous with the "worst conference of the show" award, whether that's thanks to factors outside of the games themselves, or a lacklustre showing in terms of reveals. These are...

  • Poll What Do You Think of Battlefield V?

    Back to the beaches

    Last week we had our look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and earlier this week, we got our first glimpse of Battlefield V during an admittedly terrible live reveal event. If you missed it, you can find our coverage by clicking through here. As was heavily rumoured, Battlefield V throws players into World War II. We only got a...

  • News EA 'Pushing Forward' with Loot Boxes, Working to Protect Revenue Stream

    Wilson weighs in

    The various Ultimate Team modes in EA’s sports games now generate more income than brands like The Sims and Battlefield, so it’s no surprise to see the publisher double-down on lucrative loot boxes – despite the threat of government regulation. Both Belgium and the Netherlands recently declared the divisive “card...

  • Poll What Are Your Thoughts on EA These Days?

    Still the big bad guys?

    Electronic Arts. EA. One of the biggest video game publishers in the world and also, it's fair to say, one of the most controversial. Over the last decade or so, EA has made a lot of headlines -- not all of them positive. This console generation in particular has seen the company come under fire numerous times because of the...

  • News ANTHEM Sounds Like It Could Be Make or Break for the Once Great BioWare

    Hopefully it works out

    Let's not beat around the bush: BioWare's been trying to navigate an increasingly slippery slope for a good few years now. Once one of the very best role-playing game studios in the world, the Canadian company has had it rough in recent times, with the likes of Mass Effect: Andromeda failing to propel the beloved...

  • News Fe Brings Its Beautiful World to PS4 in February

    No lootboxes here

    Review The Sims 4

    Better simulate than never

    You begin The Sims 4 by creating a Sim - an avatar of a person, perhaps based on yourself only thinner, more popular, and with cooler hair - using a fairly robust character creation suite. You can start the game with your Sim at any stage of their life, from toddler to elder, and you assign them a bunch of personality...

  • Poll Are You Buying Star Wars Battlefront 2?

    Or have microtransactions put you off?

    Hey, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out today on PlayStation 4... But are you buying it? Just in case you haven't been keeping up with the news, EA's latest blockbuster has been drowning in a sea of negativity for weeks. Most of that negativity stems from the game's convoluted progression system, which places...

  • News EA Removes Microtransactions from Star Wars Battlefront 2, for Now at Least

    Deal altered

    And there it is: EA has officially removed in-game purchases from Star Wars Battlefront 2... For now, anyway. The title's microtransactions were taken offline not too long ago, which got people talking about what the publisher could possibly be planning. Turns out that they're going to be gone for some time. In a statement, DICE...

  • News Star Wars Battlefront 2 Microtransactions Taken Down as Rumours of Change Swirl

    Altering the deal?

    Just when you're about to hit the hay, news breaks that Star Wars Battlefront 2's microtransactions have been taken offline.
