Players Tackle Battlefield 1 Morse Code Mystery

Some soldiers of Battlefield 1 [official site] have stopped chucking grenades and sniping each other from across the map long enough to discover some pairs of mysterious headphones scattered around, which can be picked up by a single person during the fight. They then found that a jumbled morse code message would play if that person stood close to a radio station hidden somewhere on the map. What can it all mean? I’ll tell you: it means another elaborate Battlefield easter egg hunt has begun.

Battlefield 1 Announced, Set In World War One

Battlefield 1 [official site] will be this year’s new game in EA’s FPS series, set in World War One, earlier than ever before. I suppose this means that all the hilarious jokes people have made about “not playing Battlefield 2142 until they’ve played the previous 2141 games” were actually eerie predictions. All Battlefield games until this have been part of an incredibly ambitious plan to create over two thousand virtual wars. That’s at least four millennia of games at this pace. Heck, the series started with its 1,942nd part – George Lucas can suck an egg. So! Yes, BF1, WW1, coming on October 21.

Battleface: New Battlefield Game Teaser-Trailed

At 9PM BTS/4PM ET, we’ll find out whether the new Battlefield game is Battlefield 5, Battlefield: More Uncomfortable Police Brutality Allusions, or something else entirely. I’m wondering if it could be something a little science-fictional, in order to go toe-to-toe with what COD is up to.

We’re overdue a return to 2142. Although the rest of the internet seems to think we’re going back to 1942 at long last.

EA’s All-You-Can-Eat Games Subscription Comes To PC

If you like a lot of big-budget on your biscuit, join this club. Enormo-publisher EA just announced that its previously console-only Access service is now available on PC, as a bolt-on for its Origin game store. Pay a monthly Origin Access subscription fee of $4.99/€3.99/£3.99 and you’ll get all-you-can-eat access to a (currently) small archive of recent EA titles. Perhaps more likely to flog subscriptions is that they include access to ‘trials’ of new releases five days before the full games go on sale, as well as 10% off Origin purchases. The walls around the garden just got taller.
