BioWare outline goals for better loot in Anthem

As promised, BioWare are starting to publish updates as they rethink their not-so-well-received online sci-fi shooter Anthem. Today's update specifically talks about their goals for the loot system, which they want to be more reliable and respect a player's time. It doesn't sound like anything is set in stone yet, so this will definitely be a lengthy journey for Anthem as they previously estimated.

Yep, BioWare are still making Dragon Age 4

Here we go again. Fighting over scraps of Dragon Age 4 news like corrupted templars desperate to snag the last drop of red lyrium. The last titbits we got were pretty good, to be fair. Those pretty scenes from the EA Play event gave plenty to speculate on for a while. But there's a new tiny morsel of info now, this time coming from BioWare…

Star Wars: The Old Republic is the latest EA game to hit Steam

A long time ago, on a launcher far far away, you couldn't play Star Wars: The Old Republic on Steam. But the old EA order has given way to the new, and for the past month, a fleet of games once exclusive to Origin have found their way into Valve's orbit. Today, The Old Republic joined that armada, bringing the venerable MMORPG alongside its Star…

Mass Effect art book listing rekindles rumours of a remastered trilogy in March

Though EA's notE3 showcase has come and gone with nary a mention of a remastered Mass Effect trilogy, rumours persist. Now they're being stoked again by an Amazon listing apparently revealing an expanded version of the art book, The Art Of The Mass Effect Trilogy is coming in March 2021. Which makes some fans wonder: why expand the art book now? Hell, we all need…

That Dragon Age next-gen tease was only seconds long, but I’m still excited

I wasn't scheduled to work during the EA Play Live stream, but I did anyway, because that meant I was in with a hot chance of seeing something Dragon Age related. Let me introduce myself: hello, I am a fool.I do this whenever EA do any sort of live anything, and was rewarded with a still image with some moody voice over at E3 two…

BioWare are prototyping Anthem NEXT but say it’ll be “a longer process”

Things have been quiet in Anthem land ever since BioWare confirmed that they were reinventing the ill-received sci-fi game. BioWare want to break their silence on Anthem NEXT and start sharing more, but don't want you to hold your breath. "Spoiler – this is going to be a longer process," says studio director Christian Dailey.

The Mass Effect trilogy might be getting the remaster it deserves

Say those three words and I'm yours forever: Mass Effect remaster. The rumour mill has lit up today following a titbit of news from EA stating that a HD remake or remaster of one of their games is planned to release sometime this year. VentureBeat claim it's going to be a remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy. Or maybe a remake. The article uses both…

Feature: Headbutting its way into my heart

Have you played… Mass Effect: Andromeda (multiplayer)?

I played Mass Effect 3's multiplayer mode for hundreds of hours. With my beloved Krogan, Klom, and my vastly overpowered Crusader shotgun, I would charge around the maps I'd come to know like the back of Klom's helmet, blasting and headbutting my way through Reapers and Geth and Collectors and whatever else the game threw at me. It was glorious.I can't quite say that Mass…

5 games that prove friendship is better and more interesting than romance

"Is it friendship? Or is it something more?" goes a common sentiment, particularly on days like today, when we celebrate the anniversary of Captain Cook getting stabbed to death. Well, that's a stupid question, because there is nothing more than friendship.Games are, for once, not much worse than other media at depicting and exploring themes of friendship. In fact, some of the best stories about…

Former Mass Effect writer is the next BioWare alumni to join Archetype Entertainment

Drew Karpyshyn is the next former BioWare developer to join the ranks at Archetype Entertainment, Wizards Of The Coast's brand new development studio. You might recognise Karpyshyn as one of the writers behind Mass Effect 1 and 2, Baldur's Gate and Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic. He's joining a studio that says they're dedicated to creating "epic story-driven role playing games" - and…

BioWare confirm they are “reinventing” Anthem

There's no question that Anthem's had a tough run so far. Tough enough that you might imagine BioWare would let it rot at the base of the family tree while turning back to its other established series. A rumor last year suggested that BioWare would stick it out and attempt to put a shine on the new futuristic FPS universe. General manager Casey Hudson confirmed…

Wizards Of The Coast’s new studio is making a sci-fi RPG with ex-BioWare devs

Last year, D&D & Magic The Gathering publishers Wizards Of The Coast hired James Ohlen to head up a new studio. He was the creative director/lead designer on Dragon Age: Origins and Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic, so naturally I am tracking his movements. We now know a teensy bit more about Archetype Entertainment's debut project, which will be set in an "all-new…

Feeling low? It’s okay. Join us in our gaming happy places

It's been a tough weekend for a lot of people. And there's a tough season coming up, too. Despite Saint Nick's PRs working over time to make us all cheerful, Christmas can actually be a sad and stressful time, can't it?Listen: it’s ok to be sad. It's fine. You feel what you feel. So, I asked the RPS hivemind what their gaming happy places were,…

BioWare are far from done with Anthem, according to a new report

You'd be forgiven for thinking that BioWare are leaving Anthem to slowly rot, considering Fort Tarsis is filled with bones, and there has been little in the way of new content outside of the recent Halloween event, Season of Skulls. But a new rumour now suggests that BioWare are planning a revival. Much more than the upcoming Christmas event, Icetide, and more akin to "a…

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…

Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic film being written by Altered Carbon showrunner

It's still early days yet, but there's a Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic film in development. As reported by Buzzfeed last night, Laeta Kalogridis (Writer on Altered Carbon, Shutter Island, Alita: Battle Angel among others) is nearly done on a script for the first in a possible KOTOR film trilogy. I'm surprised that the whole Old Republic setting hadn't been tapped for any film…

Anthem updates with a new Stronghold and mid-mission gear changes

Troubled looter-shooter Anthem has rolled out its first major post-release update today. Despite adding a new post-story Stronghold mission to complete, the centrepiece of this update is undoubtedly a quality-of-life fix: Players no longer have to return to base to change equipment. Improvements like this seem to be order of the day for patch 1.1.0, as BioWare plug up the worst of the wounds after…

Star Wars: The Old Republic expands again in September

With all the news of the new Star Wars hotness this weekend, it's easy to forget that BioWare are still hammering away at Star Wars: The Old Republic, their once-troubled MMORPG. Among Saturday's glut of news from a galaxy far, far away was the low-key announcement of Onslaught, the first major expansion for The Old Republic since 2016's Knights Of The Eternal Throne. The old war…

Dragon Age 4 was to be about magical heists until 2017 reboot

Reports coming out of BioWare continue to sound grim, although notably not unusual among larger games studios. After their breakdown of Anthem's troubled development last week, Kotaku continued to dig into what the status of Dragon Age 4 is. We've known for a while that development of the game (under the codename 'Joplin') had ended in 2017, and the game as it stands now is…

BioWare’s awful response to Kotaku’s exposé pours petrol on a raging PR fire

Yesterday Kotaku's Jason Schreier dropped one of his explosive articles upon the gaming industry, this time revealing the sad, grim tale of how BioWare's Anthem came to be. It was, as has come to be expected from Kotaku's investigative exposés, a meticulously researched and cited piece that step-by-step broke down the maudlin development of Anthem, from the perspective of nineteen current and former BioWare employees,…
