Apex Legends Season 8 is totally demolishing Kings Canyon

When Respawn said last week that the Apex Legends' map Kings Canyon would be "obliterated" in Season 8, I thought perhaps this meant they were going to whack a giant crater somewhere and call it a day. After seeing the new Season 8 launch trailer, I think I wildly underestimated their resolve. Kings Canyon looks like a wasteland.

Apex Legends explosive new character Fuse arrives in Season 8

I can't believe it's been nearly two years since Apex Legends launched. Back then it had only one map and eight characters. Now the battle royale has three cool maps that chop and change as the seasons go by, and 15 (!) Legends. It's not long now until we meet the 16th either. Today, Respawn gave us all our first look at Fuse, an explosive…

For the next seven days, you can grab a free copy of Dice's for all sorts of authentically Star Wars-y zapping and swording in singleplayer…

Dragon Age 4’s magic archer concept art looks well cool

On Friday, Dragon Age 4's executive producer Christian Dailey shared a lovely new bit of concept art for BioWare's upcoming RPG. It's a beautiful piece featuring an archer stood amongst some autumnal ruins. Concept art is about all we've seen of the game so far - well, that, and a short teaser at last year's Game Awards. But nevertheless, it's got my mind racing with…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is free on the Epic Games Store next week

Load you blasters and whip out your lightsabers, because Star Wars Battlefront 2 is the Epic Games Store's big freebie next week. I think I quite liked that one, it had a well fun mode where you got to run around and beat people up as General Grievous. You'll be able to claim it from Thursday the 14th January.Before we get there though, this week's…

Why won’t anyone fight me in Apex Legends’ cool new boxing ring

This week, Apex Legends started its Fight Night event, plonking a great big boxing ring onto the Olympus map. Challenging players to cheeky boxing matches has always been a fun part of Apex, so I was pretty excited to jump into an official ring right in the middle of Respawn's battle royale. Unfortunately, a mere two days after the boxing ring appeared, no one seems…

Apex Legends challenges you to a spot of boxing in its new event

Meet me in the ring. Not the normal scary Apex Legends death ring though, the boxing ring! Respawn Entertainment are kicking off a new collection event for the battle royale this evening: Fight Night. It's a new town takeover themed around the lovable murderbot Pathfinder, in which players will be stripped of their guns and face-off in fisticuffs. A new game mode is joining the…

The Expanse helped me understand a major Mass Effect plot point

The Amazon Prime series The Expanse is great. It's really excellent sci-fi, and shares many parallels with one of my most loved game series, Mass Effect. Today, I would like to tell you about how The Expanse made me less annoyed at one of the major plot points in the very first Mass Effect. Fair warning, I'm about to drop some spoilers for The Expanse…

EA Play will now become part of Xbox Game Pass for PC next year

All of EA Play's games on Xbox Game Pass would've made for one hell of a Christmas present, sure. But while today was meant to be the big day, it looks like it'll be a couple more months before EA's catalogue is rolled into Microsoft's already-generous subscription service. Xbox today announced that it'll be 2021 before The Sims, Battlefield, Dragon Age and friends become part…

Sorry Take-Two, it looks like EA are buying Codemasters now

Hope you're ready for some big business-y numbers on this fine Monday afternoon. Last month, Take-Two Interactive announced they had plans to buy Dirt developer Codemasters for a whopping £759 million. However, that doesn't seem to be happening anymore. Other gaming megacorp, Electronic Arts, are ready to do the buying instead. They've swooped in with a cheeky £914 million offer for Codemasters, who are expected…

The B-Wing and TIE Defender have landed in Star Wars: Squadrons

So what does the B stand for anyway? Bomber? Best? Blurst? Because I'm looking at the ship right now, and that doesn't look like any B I've ever seen. Semantics aside, the topsy-turvy heavy bomber has finally arrived in a free update to Star Wars: Squadrons alongside the TIE Defender, an Imperial fighter that looks like someone glued an extra pair of wings onto the…

A Way Out devs reveal new co-op adventure It Takes Two

Sometimes a relationship can be a man, a woman and their overenthusiatic talking book. At least, that's what I assume the trailer for It Takes Two is teaching us. It's a new co-op game from Hazelight, developers of A Way Out, where you play as a couple who've been magically turned into dolls. It looks very lovely, and it comes out on March 26th next…

New Mass Effect teaser trailer has Liara in it

I can hardly believe my eyes, but BioWare just revealed a teaser trailer for the next Mass Effect at The Game Awards - and Liara was in it. Blue space-wife Liara from the Mass effect trilogy was in the new Mass Effect teaser, exploring a snowy planet and picking up a discarded piece of N7 armour. What does this mean for Mass Effect 5? Will…

BioWare’s new Dragon Age 4 trailer teases the return of Varric

Here we go again. BioWare have revealed yet another tiny trailer for Dragon Age 4, but unlike the many before it, this time there's actually some solid info to take from it. We get a look at a new setting (which absolutely looks like Tevinter to me), an evil pouty Solas, and better yet, it sounds like everyone's best dwarven bud Varric is back -…

The Sims 4 new update adds over 100 skin tones and sliders to character creation

Earlier this year, Maxis told players that they would expand the character creation tools in The Sims 4 to help create more diverse Sims, specifically focusing on darker skin tones and textured hairstyles. That effort has produced results today in a free update that massively expands your ability to choose skin tones and makeup colors along with a couple hairstyle improvements.

Dragon Age voice actor LARPs 40-minute career breakdown

What did you do to celebrate Dragon Age day on Friday? I watched a voice actor get brutally shut down by Dragon Age fans, after he posted the cringiest video I have ever watched in my life. Greg Ellis, the voice of Cullen in Dragon Age: Inquisition, decided that it would be a good idea to post a 40 minute video, in-character as Cullen, complaining…

BioWare veterans Casey Hudson and Mark Darrah have left the studio

After a long and bumpy road, two companions have this week chosen to leave BioWare's adventuring party. Casey Hudson, the project director for Mass Effect before becoming the studio's general manager, has departed the company after 23 years along with Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah. Those are some big departures, but BioWare insists they'll have no effect on the studio's upcoming remasters and long-distant…

Apex Legends winter event brings back its best feature – the train

A few months ago, Apex Legends cruelly took away the train, the best bit of its World's Edge map, leaving us with nothing but boring stationary ground to fight on. Man, the train was amazing. Oh how I loved the rush of dropping onto that speedy death tube, wading through the gas of six Caustics in an attempt to find loot. It's a buzz we'll…

Apex Legends dev wants to bring Wraith “under control” in Season 8

I have some bad news for all you Wraith mains out there. Not only have her abilities been nerfed and her Naruto-style run taken away, now it sounds like Respawn plan on making her even easier to shoot in Season 8. A developer says they want to bring the most popular Apex Legends character "under control" next season, potentially increasing her hitbox. It's not all…
