Anthem tries to embrace its own Destiny

During yesterday's EA’s press conference for E3 (which seemed at times like an hour-long apology for microtransactions) we saw a bit more of Anthem, the upcoming shooter from BioWare. The sliced-together footage followed a multiplayer run through the jungles and rock-pools of the world, ending when the four "freelancers" in robot suits encountered a large insect who eats cameras. But I’ve been braving the LA…

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.…

Origin Access offers up new premium Premier tier

During today's E3 event, Electronic Arts revealed their new premium subscription tier for Origin Access, called Origin Access Premier. It'll let members play EA's new games as much as they please, including Madden NFL 19, Fifa 19, Battlefield V and, of course, Anthem. A pass to play every big new EA game without buying 'em.

FIFA 19 yoinks the Champions League

EA have landed the Champions League license for FIFA 19, taking possession from Konami's rival Pro Evolution Soccer series after its 10-year deal expired. Y'know, the Champions League, the Pan-European football competition with the sixth-best theme song in sporting television (after Formula 1, the Test Match Cricket, Football Italia, BBC Snooker, and Monday Night Handegg). The Champions League will be splattered all across FIFA 19,…

Unravel 2 announced, is out… now?!

Crafted cutie Yarny is back, and this time he's made a friend. EA today not only formally announced Unravel Two, they're chuffing well launching the puzzle-platformer today too. Surprise! And now it has co-op too. We knew a sequel was coming but didn't expect this. Here's our video person Matthew playing a bit.

Respawn’s Star Wars game is Jedi: Fallen Order

That mysterious boldly-going game from Titanfall developers Respawn Entertainment is named Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, EA confirmed during their E3 pressblast today, and it'll launch next year. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella didn't have much to say about the game, beyond the obvious that we'll get to play as a Jedi and swing a glowstick as we delve into the past, somewhere between Episodes 3…

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…

When and where to watch the big E3 livestreams

Publishers are lining up to announce and show off their upcoming games at their big annual press conference-o-market-o-ramas, starting today. This is all livestreamed nowadays, and it's certainly more comfortable to be watching from home than the conference rooms (sorry, Brendy), and it's always a lark. Cars descend from the rafters for no reason, lights flash, music plays, terrible terrible just awful jokes are told,…

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…

The Sims 4 Seasons blasts Simlish Steal My Sunshine

A Simlish version of Len's red-hot summer jam Steal My Sunshine accompanies the announcement of the 'Seasons' expansion for The Sims 4, and it's twisting my melon, man. If you're going cruising this long weekend, lash this one out in your car and enjoy confusion spreading across the faces of people next to you at the traffic lights. Sims 2 and 3 both received Seasons…

Battlefield V interview: dodging the lootbox question, and why battle royale “would really fit the universe”

I came away from my Battlefield V first look surprisingly ready for another tour of the Western front - prosthetic-armed Cockneys and all - but with a number of nagging questions. Firstly, how exactly is EA DICE approaching monetisation right now, in the wake of the uproar over Star Wars: Battlefront 2's rubbish launch-day microtransactions? I was treated to an hour-long presentation on the game's…

Battlefield V is about making friends, building forts and daily chores

World War 2 has broken out once again as EA DICE heads back to the 1940s with Battlefield V, a theoretically safe sequel with some curious, and possibly divisive, ideas at its core. After the thematic reset that was Battlefield 1 I wasn't expecting much from this year's instalment of the long-running shooter series – class tweaks, new period accessories and still-higher fidelity explosions, all…

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…
