Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order won’t come early to Origin Access cos spoilers

Origin Access subscribers will not get to play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order before launch but will receive cosmetic trinkets instead. Early access to new games is one of the marquee features of EA's service, with a ten-hour trial usually available for Basic subscribers and the full game for Premier members. EA claim they're changing the usual deal for this one because of a terrible…

Apex Legends finally gets a proper training mode alongside a limited duos mode

Halloween has come and gone from Apex Legends. Zombie hordes have vanished, replaced by the bitter chill of a November bloodbath. As the year cools down, it's time to warm up. This week's Apex patch 3.1 finally adds much-needed training mode Firing Range - a freeform arena for trying out all of Respawn's toys - and a duos mode to pit you and a friend…

The Sims 4 Discover University is a millennial horror game

It’s comforting to know that The Sims 4 is still ticking along with new expansions. The world doesn’t need to hold its breath waiting, wondering, worrying about more Sims. We’re getting more. We’re always getting more. We’re getting more in about 9 days. The next expansion, The Sims 4 Discover University, brings the terrifying world of further education to the series.

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…

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.

Here’s a first, brief look at Command & Conquer Remastered

Staring at a screen for 20+ years tends to make things blurry. My solution is to completely ignore the ravages of time on my eyes and to hope that things will work out anyway. And they did! EA have been working on a Command & Conquer remaster that sharpens the original sprites and deblurs the destruction, so I can more easily make out the Nod's…

Battlefield V heads to the Pacific Theatre next week with Iwo Jima

EA announced today that Chapter 5: War In The Pacific will begin next Thursday, October 31st with new factions, maps, and weapons. Ye olde Iwo Jima will return alongside a new map, Pacific Storm, while the classic Wake Island will follow later. Come see…

Feature: Murder Makes Me A Badass Girl

Apex Legends’ Voidwalker cinematic turns Wraith’s infinite worlds into an absurd binary

Apex: Stories from the Outlands - “Voidwalker” is the second of, so far, two short cinematic vignettes, meant to provide some narrative to the otherwise plot-barren battle-royale frenzy of fluid movement and chaotic gun-slinging that is Apex Legends. Principally, it is a story of two women. And while it falls into a well known, often criticised trope, it also presents an infinity of choices that…

Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville grows out of early access

Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville, the latest shooter spinoff to the goofy tower defense original, released proper yesterday after a short stint in early access. Popcap have been carefully watering it with content updates for a few weeks, and now it’s ready to blossom into its final form. They’ve released a pun-filled musical trailer to celebrate.

Feature: But yes I am still enamoured with Cal's backpack

I want to explore the worlds of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but maybe not its story

I want to explore. Like, everywhere. I didn’t expect that to be the main takeaway of my Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order hands-on preview, but here we are: amongst the windswept vistas of Zeffo, or careening down its ice caves, or clambering around the crumbling red stone of a temple on Dathomir. The team behind Titanfall 2 have built some more beautiful worlds for me…

Apex Legends starts terrifying, brilliant Fight Or Fright event

There's a chill in King's Canyon tonight. Apex Legends's Fight Or Fright Halloween spectacle began today, bringing ghosts and ghouls and all that spooky stuff into Respawn's battle royale. For the next three weeks, the familiar cast of the Apex games will be dressing up in their spookiest costumes, dishing out bullets and grenades to any rascal with the nerve to come trick or treating…

Apex Legends will let you practice without pressure on the Firing Range

You've just dropped into a warzone with 59 vicious murderers. But hold up, where's your trusty Wingman? What's this, a charge rifle? What does that do? Worse, both your teammates nicked your mains, and you're dropping as Caustic. Bloody hell, how does this gassy doctor play? Before you know it, you've been booted back to the main menu with a bang. Rubbish. All that fuss…

Treasures await in Apex Legends’s newly-opened vaults

If you've been happily sliding and shooting your way across Apex Legends's new map this past week, you've no doubt noticed some tantalising secrets tucked away in certain nooks and crannies. A captain's bounty of glistening golden chestplates and helmets, paralysing quantities of purple attachments and phoenix kits, all kept just out of reach by a door on a timer. Well, my plundering friends, today…

Apex Legends will raise the dead to fight in its Halloween event

It's time for Apex Legends to get spooky. Passing your first big holiday is something of a rite of passage for live games. What off-brand hallow's eve or Wintermas am I in for this time, we collectively wonder? For ApeLegs, it's the Fight Or Fright Collection Event arriving on October 15th. Much like the notorious Iron Crown back in August, Fight Or Fright is a…

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…

So hot it’s cool, so cool it’s hot: Apex Legends’s new map and new season arrive today

Apex Legends's new map, World's Edge, is a packing nightmare. Lava fields on one side, ice floes on the other, and I can't imagine that middle ground is anything but muggy and miserable. What am I supposed to bring? Do I wear a jacket or jorts? It's a bloody gorgeous vacation hotspot, though. I can't say I'm surprised those murderous rascals are settling in here…

Medal Of Honor: Above And Beyond is a VR-only WW2 shooter from Respawn

The folks who make Apex Legends are working on a new Medal of Honor game. Medal Of Honor: Above And Beyond is a VR WW2 shooter, announced by Respawn Entertainment during last night’s Oculus-a-thon. It's the first in the series since 2012's Warfighter. In it you’re an American spy from the Office of Strategic Services, sabotaging the Nazi war machine with wacky VR shenanigans. Come…

Commandos, jungles and bot-matches: Battlefront 2’s next update is a 14-year throwback

I dearly wish I had something funny or relatable to say about the year 2005, dear reader. But I was 10, too young to care that Star Wars was in a bit of a funk and deeply out of touch with the culture. The games were good, mind, even if I hadn't quite discovered PC gaming. Nope, I was cracking out rounds of Star Wars…

Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville launches Founders Edition for eager gardeners

I can't tell you how or why Plants Vs. Zombies - that verdant tower defence thing - became an arena shooter. It seems to have worked out well for Popcap, at least - especially considering that older thing turned into this mobile monstrosity. I'm sure those shooters they keep making are good. Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville was announced today. It looks pretty nifty,…
