  • Rumour Is Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered Speeding onto PS4?

    One report reckons so

    Last year, Electronic Arts said it's been cooking up some "exciting remasters of fan favourites".

    Following in the footsteps of A Way Out and Fe is Lost in Random, the next title in the EA Originals program. This title comes from Zoink!

  • News Star Wars: Squadrons Gameplay Shows Campaign, Multiplayer, and Massive Fleet Battles

    Squadron goals

    The only thing that stopped us falling asleep during EA Play 2020 was the new gameplay trailer for Star Wars: Squadrons.

The latter seems to be the big selling point here, as two teams dogfight...

    EA Play, EA's annual, totally-not-an-E3-press-conference, is happening tonight. But will the heavily rumoured Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster finally be announced during the show?

  • News A Way Out Developer to Announce Next Game at EA Play This Thursday

    Another co-op game?

    Who could possibly forget Josef Fares? Famed for his "F*ck the Oscars" speech during The Game Awards a few years back, the man is probably more memorable than A Way Out at this point. It was a fairly decent co-op game, but it wasn't quite as good as the head of Hazelight Studios made it out to be. Nevertheless, it looks like...

  • News The Next Need for Speed Game Is Now in Development

    Heat gets cross-play

    Last year's Need for Speed Heat wasn't the greatest return to form, but it did just enough to scrape a 7/10 in the Push Square review.

  • News Unannounced EA Titles Give Mass Effect Fans Renewed Hope for Trilogy Remaster

    Just do it

    It's the middle of 2020 and EA still hasn't given us a remastered Mass Effect Trilogy. How have we gone almost a whole console generation without seeing Shepard and the gang on PlayStation 4?
