Battlefield 5 adds two new maps, plus you can play for free ’til Sunday

It's almost as if they planned it. Here I am, lamenting Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's lacklustre attempt to mirror Battlefield's large scale conflict with its new "Ground War" mode. There go Dice, whacking in two new maps plus a handful of weapons and vehicles to Battlefield 5 as part of yesterday's update. They've opened up the Pacific front, and my pals are murmuring about…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your…

EA games are returning to Steam, starting with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Electronic Arts are returning to Steam after a long hiatus. The first game to come over to the dark side is, appropriately enough, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on November 15. It'll be followed by the EA big guns of FIFA 20, Battlefield V, and more next year. And they're bringing their subscription service, EA Origin Access, which is a real surprise.

Battlefield V’s Operation Underground brings back Metro massacres

Oh god, Operation Metro is back. Battlefield V's newest map, Operation Underground hits the WW2 shooter today, bringing back Battlefield 3's most infamous below-ground bloodbath. Grim-faced veterans will shudder at memories of Paris stalemates. A Sisyphean death march for on the offence, a point-and-click machine gun adventure for defenders. Fortunately, Dice have invested in public infrastructure this time around, and promise a more seamless trip…

Feature: The Battle Royale of Battle Royales

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Feature: Now with added Minecraft and Dying Light 2

All the Nvidia RTX ray tracing and DLSS games confirmed so far

It's Gamescom this week, which can only mean one thing - more confirmed ray tracing games for Nvidia's RTX and selected GTX 16-series graphics cards. Indeed, the big one that's just been announced is Minecraft, which (like Quake II RTX) is getting full, real-time ray tracing support for everything from water reflections to its entire lighting system. That's not all, though. Dying Light 2 will…

Battlefield V’s secret hand gun is perfectly horrifying

The Battlefield games have long been nests of Easter eggs, hiding everything from rare reload animations where you perform magic tricks on guns to giant prehistoric sharks who'll leap up and git ya. Battlefield V still had a few to hide, it seems, and may yet have more. But what's most got my attention is the horrible finger gun found this week, fired by having…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Battlefield V headed to the Pacific theatre this autumn

After scrapping around Europe and North Africa, Battlefield V will next bounce over to the far side of World War 2, headed to the Pacific theatre later this year. US and Japanese armies will arrive to scrap with new weapons and vehicles on new maps, including vintage Battlefield map Iwo Jima. EA have shown wee teasers of this before but it's proper official now, blasted…

Battlefield V premium not-a-Nazi (say EA) to be renamed in honour of resistance fighter

The good side of Battlefield V dropping season passes is that everyone gets free maps. The trade-off is that, being a World War 2 game, any cosmetic gubbins they sell, including 'elite' character skins, is going to include Nazis and Nazi memorabilia, even if the swastikas are painted over. That's bad enough, but earlier today, Vice published a piece pointing out that premium Nazi Wilhelm…

Battlefield V teases five more fields of battle plus Pacific conflict

Battlefield V had a rocky launch, but Dice are sticking to their promise of big, regular updates to the online shooter without needing anyone buy a season pass. Today, we got our first video peek at the maps coming in Chapter 4: Defying The Odds and beyond. Over the next six months we've got at least five maps due, including the hellish-looking Metro reprise Operation…

Battlefield V’s new Mercury map is all Greek to me

If you're going to die (repeatedly) somewhere, it may as well be scenic, and I'm happy to describe Battlefield V's new map - Mercury - as a treat for the eyes. Released today in a free update, it's inspired by Operation Mercury in 1941, a German assault on the island of Crete. What this means is a large map that equally suits infantry, aircraft and…

Dota 2’s paid “avoid player” option is part of a pattern of developers sidelining anti-abuse features

Dota 2's International 2019 Battle Pass has plenty of issues. As Matt wrote earlier this month, alongside a waterfall of cosmetics and a special mode, the pass will unlock an in-game assistant that seems to give owners an advantage over those who haven’t forked over at least £7.50/$10. But (as reported by The Verge) the pass is paywalling another key feature – the ability to…

Feature: Trial by Firestorm

Love and loathing in Battlefield Firestorm

Battlefield Royale, or Battlefield V Firestorm if you're an EA executive who shouldn't be trusted with naming things, is terrific. Sometimes. When you're oh-so-slowly tiptoeing through a building, anxiously attempting to outflank a foe as they do the same. Or when you spend a solid five minutes laying in a ditch, your patience pays off, and you spectacularly blow up a tank with your last…

Battlefield V’s Firestorm is now lit

I still cannot tell you why Battlefield V's battle royale mode is not named Battlefield Royale, but I can tell you that this so-called 'Firestorm' has launched today. It's a battle royale game, right, but in Battlefield - and with a swish ring of fire closing around you, an inferno on the horizon that eats through buildings in that pleasing Battlefield destruct-o-tech way. I wouldn't…

Feature: DICE with death

The real star of Battlefield V’s battle royale is a giant, roaming bonfire

DICE appeared to drop the ball when they didn't call Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale offering 'Battlefield Royale'. They called it Firestorm instead, which sounds like a terrible Steven Seagal film you'd buy for 99p at a petrol station. Having now played the mode, due as a free update next Monday, I can see why they went with it. The titular blaze dominates the whole…

Battlefield V starts Firestorm battle royale on March 25

What happens if you fall into a burning ring of fire? It's a given that you'll fall down, down, down while the flames climb higher and that doubtless burns, burns, burns. What many don't expect is that you'll then lark about on a big red tractor with your pals and blast other firefools to pieces with some serious artillery. That's how it'll go in Firestorm,…

Leaked Battlefield V Firestorm trailer looks hot

Fire! Doobey dooo! I want you to burn, and it looks like my wish will soon be granted. A leaked trailer for Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale mode (foolishly called Firestorm rather than Battlefield Royale) hit the net last night. There are tanks. There are guns of different tiers. There is fire. There are no surprises, in other words, but I'm still keen to warm…

Battlefield V and Metro Exodus receive DLSS support for Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards

It's been a long time coming, but the list of games with proper, honest-to-goodness [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] support you can actually take advantage of in-game is finally getting a teensy bit longer today, as Nvidia have announced their performance-boosting DLSS tech is coming to both Battlefield V and Metro Exodus as part of their next graphics driver update - just in time for budding…
