Feature: Sing the Anthem of my people.

Anthem beta dates, release date, trailers, editions, pre-order bonuses

BioWare have shown their newest game to a select view people that signed up to the recent closed alpha, but off the back of this, EA have outlined some details regarding the open beta next year. Therefore, it seemed more than appropriate to update our page with everything we know about Anthem. Below you will find all the information about the beta, as well as…

BioWare’s Anthem getting open beta in February

If you're curious about BioWare's sci-fi shooter RPG Anthem but have no luck with closed alpha invitations, hey, chillax: a three-day open beta is coming in February. EA call this an "open demo" rather than the usual "open beta", but a demo isn't open for only three days several weeks before launch so I'll use the technically-incorrect-but-widely-known term thank you, much to the chagrin of…

Tanks are making overtures in Battlefield V’s first big update

It is a good day for tanks. Though now that I think about it, the tanks themselves in Battlefield V's freshly released Overture update are doomed to an eternal cycle of being murdered, then plucked from silicon heaven to fight one of humanity's damnable wars once more. It's a good day for people who would like to blow up tanks. After yesterday's launch hiccup, the…

Battlefield V’s tanktacular Overture update trundles out tomorrow

Tanks in single-player, tanks in multiplayer and probably some bonus tanks just for fun. Battlefield 5's first episodic update, Overture, is out tomorrow - December 4th - and all about the armour. There'll be a new and grim-looking War Story called The Last Tiger, a new multiplayer map called Panzerstorm, a handy practice range to hone your sharpshooting on and a tank cosmetics system. Below,…

Obi-Wan and the Battle Of Geonosis arrive in Star Wars: Battlefront 2

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is still alive and kicking, despite being supplanted by Battlefield 5 as flavour of the week. The once-wonky shooter has seen some laudable improvements since launch (including loot boxes being almost entirely excised), and recent months have been especially kind. Today's update adds a new Clone Wars-era map, the Battle of Geonosis plus a young-ish Obi-Wan Kenobi playable. This is on…

Ducks are coming to Battlefield V

Sorry, not those kind of ducks. Even better ducks! In a Battlefield first, as of Battlefield V's next patch you'll be able to dodge behind cover when you're in a tank's top gunner slot. It's one of those minor tweaks that could wind up having a major impact, encouraging more people to hop into bullet-spewing death machines. I imagine you'll still get sniped a lot,…

Battlefield V is now properly out for real

"Taken on its own terms, Battlefield V is an incredible achievement that's absolutely worth your time and its AAA price tag," young Matt said in our Battlefield V review. That sounds good! "Taken in the context of every battle that's gone before, what's on sale is the all-too familiar fantasy of being one insignificant drop in a sea of raging war-soup." That sounds... fine? You…

The Sims 4 gets first-person camera view, new expansion

EA have added a first-person camera view to The Sims 4, giving the opportunity to watch lives unfold from inside characters' heads. See through the eyes of an idiot guided by wonky logic and incomprehensible whims and desires, watching their hands touch and do things you know are foolish. And in the game. Oh, and a new expansion is out today.

EA get the band back together for Command & Conquer and Red Alert remasters

EA have now officially announced their Command & Conquer remasters, and they look to be in good hands. Several of the strategy classics's original developers are returning, including talent from ex-Westwood folks Petroglyph and original composer Frank Klepacki. Together, they're polishing up the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, along with its alt-history cousin C&C: Red Alert, plus all expansions for both games. Preempting the…

Feature: Needs more skis

Battlefield V review

Croutons adrift in war-soup. If you want an analogy for playing soldiers in Battlefield V, it’s hard to do better than that. That soup is delicious, but it’s also very easy to drown in. You’re one tiny ant in a conflict that’ll crush you without even realising you’re there, in an arena dominated by disposability. None of this is new.

Battlefield 1 players called a truce on Armistice day

As we all know, there's only one better way of honouring the fallen soldiers of World War 1 than observing a two minute silence. The best way is to load up Battlefield 1, a game about shooting soldiers in World War 1, and then not do that. At 11am Canberra time yesterday, (nearly) everyone on a Battlefield server agreed to stop shooting each other. Footage…

Battlefield V system requirements locked in

You can tell EA aren't afraid of no ghost, goblin, nor ghoulie nuh uh because on Halloween they were casually reeling off lists of technical specifications and not mentioning monsters at all, which definitely wasn't a nervous tic to distract them from the feeling shivering up their spines that they're next. No, they simply chose the spookiest day of the year to announce final PC…

EA announce Project Atlas, a futuristic dev platform powered by AI and cloud computing

If I turned to Ken Moss, chief technology officer at Electronic Arts, and asked him if one day his tech will let me upload my conscious into a digital utopia - I bet he'd look me square in the eyes and tell me yes. In an official EA blog post announcing Project Atlas, he mentions practically everything else. Project Atlas will be a game development…

EA quietly announce a Command & Conquer anniversary remaster

Rather than open with a press release or trailer, EA have chosen to quietly announce an official Command & Conquer remaster on Reddit. In a post from EA producer Jim Vessella, he says the studio have plans for the series's fast-approaching 25th anniversary. While it sounds like it's just one game being updated for now, Vessella's statement suggests that more may be planned. He has…

The Sims 4 getting a celebrity lifestyle in Get Famous expansion

I've always thought The Sims an ideal series to bundle up under a 'pay a monthly fee, get all the new stuff' subscription service, playing the endless add-ons without fuss, but disappointingly EA think otherwise. They've announced a new expansion for The Sims 4 and no, it won't be covered by their Origin Access Premier doodad. Get Famous will introduce the new region of Del…

Thriker! FIFA 19 demo released

I return from my week off work to discover that I have evidently replaced our departed Adam (RPS in peace) as the RPS Football Correspondent, because none of these squares mentioned that a free demo for FIFA 19 launched on Thursday. I've ironically become less interested in digital ballkicking since I started going to matches again (mon the Hibs!) but I appreciate some will want…

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.…

EA may be going to court in Belgium to keep loot boxes in FIFA 18 and 19

EA made a show of cutting loot boxes from games such as Star Wars Battlefront 2, but they seem willing to go to court to fight for their presence in FIFA 18 and 19, and it might result in a legal battle. After the Belgian Gaming Commission declared many kinds of loot box to be gambling, some studios restricted sales of random virtual rewards in the…
