Battlefield 1 goes cheap as chips and its DLC Premium Pass is free to keep this week

Battlefield 5's open beta is over, but the battle for objective points is eternal. As promised last week, EA have made the DLC Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 free today and for the next week. You'll need the game itself to use it, but it expands the (questionably) historical World War 1 FPS from 12 multiplayer maps to 26, featuring new classes, vehicles and weaponry.…

The Battlefield V beta had me getting into more photo shoots than gunfights

The Battlefield V beta is raging right now and I can confirm: war is indeed hell. According to Dice, though, war is also full of some incredibly stunning vistas just begging to be screenshot. Handily, they’ve also allowed you to turn off almost all the UI (except that ‘BETA’ notice in the corner, and the fact you can’t holster your weapon), so I spent several…

Battlefield V’s battle royale mode will have objectives and tanks

Last night, I stopped thinking about Battlefield V's battle royale mode as a semi-interesting inevitability and started getting excited. I'd just finished a three-hour stint in the open beta, when my fading memories of Battlefield's mesmerising war soup had been replaced with fresh ones. I quit out to find EA had dropped the first concrete details about what their spin on battle royale would involve,…

Battlefield 5’s open beta starts tomorrow and preloading is available now

Keep it on the down-low, but I hear that there's a new Battlefield game coming soon. Even more shocking, this 'Battlefield 5' will be running a free open beta, starting tomorrow. No, really - I heard it on the grapevine. Better yet, you can start preloading it now if your connection threatens to buckle under a 12.5 gigabyte download on the day. Don't say we…

Battlefield 1’s Premium Pass will be free for a week after Battlefield 5’s open beta

Any battlefield is as good as another, once you've got the taste for blood. Sound reasoning for a generous giveaway next week, at least. Despite the full game's delay, Battlefield 5's open beta is still scheduled for Thursday, September 6th (with early access for some tomorrow on the 4th), to run until September 11th. Rather than leave players desperate for more soldiers to shoot post-beta, EA…

Battlefield V launch delayed by one month

World War 2 drive-o-fly-a-FPS Battlefield V will launch one month later than previously planned, developers Dice announced today, delayed from October 19th to November 20th. Dice say they want more time to tweak it and make sure it's proper good, see. The open beta test planned to start September 6th is still going ahead on schedule, but the wait between that and the full game…

Battlefield V open beta marches out on September 6

You don't need me to tell you that war is good for absolutely nothing, but you might be wondering: is this terrible waste any fun? See for yourself from September 6th, when Battlefield V will launch a short free open beta testing inviting all and sundry to investigate their shiniest version of World War 2 yet. Or earlier if you pay EA extra. Don't do…

Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 receive another supply drop of giveaway DLC

Ever since EA announced that season passes were on the way out, they've been showering the (still very active) Battlefield 1 & Battlefield 4 communities with giveaways of premium-priced DLC, for those who haven't taken the plunge yet. Accompanying Battlefield 1's Summer Update (mostly balance tweaks and quality-of-life improvements, according to the patch notes) comes a triple giveaway. BF1 players can pick up the game's…

Battlefield V’s Grand Operations mode will be in at launch, EA now say

Turns out, Battlefield V's Grand Operations mode actually will be playable when the game launches. Delayed outrage shook the cybersphere last week after Internauts noticed EA had said on June 9 that the multi-'day' mode would arrive "shortly after launch", which seemed mighty cheeky given that EA have touted Grand Operations as a headline feature and even let people play it during recent closed alpha…

Battlefield 1 & 4 get another wave of free DLC giveaways

EA are retiring season passes for the Battlefield series starting with Battlefield V, and it seems that they're gradually making that change retroactive, at least in part. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 who only have the base games can pick up the Turning Tides and Second Assault expansions respectively for the always-reasonable price of free, although you'll need to grab them via…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 hatching Clone Wars content

The exciting Starnews out of EA's E3 press conference was word of Respawn's game, Jedi: Fallen Order, but it wasn't the only Starnews. Proving that people in E3 press conferences will cheer at anything that moves, like some sort of motion-sensitive clapbots, EA today announced that Star Wars Battlefront 2 will start adding things based on the Clone Wars from the Star Wars prequels movies.…

Battlefield V getting a battle royale mode

This being the year of our Molyneux 2018, yes of course Battlefield V will have a battle royale mode. Dice announced the mode during their E3 presentation, and sure, that's no surprise, especially as Cod Blops 4 will royale it up too. Battlefield Royale (as I imagine they'll call it?) won't be in the WW2 FPS at launch, arriving some time after, and details are…

Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Solo season raids Kessel soon

I like Star Wars: Battlefront 2. I enjoy its big dumb bombastic fights and completely unsubtle everything. For me, it's an ideal shooter for 15-30 minutes of Star Wars flavoured cooldown in-between more demanding games, especially now it's escaped from loot-crate hell. As such, more of it is always good, and now that the new one-shot prequel movie is out, there's some tie-in stuff coming…

Battlefield V is coming October 19th, see first trailer here

Update: We've now got an article with more information from today's press-only reveal event, including insight into the game's new modes, character progression, and Fortnite-like building. Alright kids, settle down. There's a new Battlefield game coming, and that's kind of a big deal. While Call of Duty may have fallen from grace somewhat on PC, older Battlefield games still remain decently populated. You'll never have…

Battlefield 1 & 4 serve up free Russian winter DLC today

Battlefield V is practically upon us already, but its two immediate predecessors are still very well populated games. Still, thanks to their old focus on season passes, many players just stuck with the base games, a problem which EA have been rectifying lately with giveaways. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 can snag the In The Name Of The Tsar expansion for the game, while Battlefield…

Battlefield V wants you to shut up, or touch its mouth?

With the glitz and glamour of Eurovision fading into memory, it's almost time for That Other E Event, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. E3's marketing blitz seems to begin earlier each year, and I've a sneaking suspicion I'm already in it but haven't fully realised yet, and now here come Electronic Arts teasing the formal announcement of Battlefield V. Coming ahead of a big livestreamed event…

Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Solo Season kicks off today

There's a new Star Wars film on the horizon, so that means it's time for fully-armed and cross-promotional battlestations. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (now freed from microtransaction hell) is well-positioned to capitalise on this, and is rolling out its first wave of Han Solo themed content today. This includes a new close-combat map set in Jabba's Palace, some Return of The Jedi-themed alternate skins and a…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 visiting Jabba’s Palace in Han Solo Season

The next starwad of Star Wars Battlefront 2 content will cross over with the adventures of dashing spacerogue Hanthony Solo, cross-promoting his upcoming prequel movie. It'll let players visit Jabba's Palace, the co-working hub where Hanthony did some freelancing in his early days. His mates Leia and Lando will also get costumes based on the time they picked him up from Jabba's office party that…

Battlefield 1’s They Shall Not Pass DLC is free today

The sun is officially setting on Battlefield 1 this month. After the surprise addition of the Shock Operations playmode, DICE announced that updates for their pseudo-historical multiplayer manshoot would be ending this June. That doesn't mean that the game is dying, by any means. In fact, owners of the basic edition (sans DLC) are getting a pleasant little boost today as the first expansion - They…
