Star Wars Battlefront Leaked Gameplay Footage

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Leaked Gameplay Footage: See the Game in Action

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Leaked Gameplay Footage: See the Game in Action

There were few third-party games as anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015. I wasn’t as pleased with the reboot as I’d expected to be, but I only had a chance to play a single match on a single map. Battlefront only really thrives once you get a hang of the character classes and learn the maps backwards and forwards.

Unfortunately, we aren’t going to have that opportunity for another few months, but there are gamers out there who are currently participating in the closed alpha, and one of them decided to share some footage from the game. More →

Star Wars Battlefront Preview

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Isn’t the Reboot I Was Looking For

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Isn’t the Reboot I Was Looking For

Of all the games we knew about before E3 2015 kicked off this week, Star Wars Battlefront might have had the highest profile. Few other games have the pedigree and history of the Battlefront series, fading away before its time with an ambitious third entry canceled before Pandemic Studios could ship it.

After years of silence, Battlefield developer DICE decided to take up the mantle and reboot the series itself. It was one of the biggest reveals of E3 2013, and two years later, I’ve finally had a chance to play it. More →

EA E3 2015 press conference live stream and live blog – watch live right here!

If you tuned in for the Xbox E3 2015 event earlier today, you might find it hard to believe that other studios have to follow up one of the most impressive presentations in recent E3 history. But the show must go on, and EA is in the unenviable position of holding its own press conference right after Microsoft. More →

Need for Speed 2015 Teaser

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed: Most Wanted was one of my favorite games of the last generation. It’s the second best open world racing game ever made (after the inimitable Forza Horizon 2), but its follow-up, Need for Speed Rivals, just didn’t connect with me. I wanted something even bigger and more impressive, but what I got was a conservative step into the new console generation.

A year and a half later, developer Ghost Games is back with another Need for Speed, and the first teaser just went live.

Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.

That’s why Battlefield Hardline is my favorite console shooter on the market right now — it’s a different beast entirely. More →

EA comes up with an ingeniously sleazy new way to milk money from gamers

The freemium game industry just took a twist for the worse — although you can’t help but appreciate the ingenuity of developers in this particular case. EA has decided that players will need gas for their car races inside Need for Speed: No Limits, and the company will sell it to you via in-app purchases. More →

EA Access Games Library

EA’s awesome Xbox One subscription service just keeps getting better

EA’s awesome Xbox One subscription service just keeps getting better

EA shocked everyone last week with the introduction of EA Access, a subscription service for Xbox One that offers discounts on EA games, early access to unreleased titles and a selection of free games for members. It all seemed to good to be true, especially coming from the company that unleashed the nightmarish Dungeon Keeper and the similarly awful Sim City relaunch onto the world, but as EA shares more details about the new service, it just keeps sounding better.

PS4 Vs. Xbox One EA

Here’s why you can’t get EA’s awesome game subscription service on the PS4

Here’s why you can’t get EA’s awesome game subscription service on the PS4

When EA announced its new EA Access subscription program for the Xbox One, we were surprised because it sounds like a pretty good deal. Given EA’s past antics, we actually expected the program involved asking gamers to pay an extra $5 per month just for the privilege of playing games on Xbox Live that they’d already purchased. But no — EA Access actually will give you the ability to play games like Madden NFL 15, Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 even if you’ve never bought the games themselves for just $5 per month or $30 for a full year subscription.
