Visceral’s Star Wars game is “along the same lines” as 1313

When Star Wars 1313 was revealed at E3 2012, the whole world awaited a spectacular-looking action romp through the gritty underbelly of the Star Wars universe. Tears were shed when Disney canned the project with the shutdown of LucasArts, but a new hope was found in Visceral’s upcoming, untitled Star Wars game, which will be penned by ex-Uncharted writer Amy Hennig.

Star Wars: Battlefront is focused on multiplayer, AT-ATs have “their own laws”

Star Wars: Battlefront is focused on multiplayer, AT-ATs have “their own laws”

DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront is very much focussed on recreating the Star Wars films’ iconic battles for multiple players to participate in, and single player was never “in the plan". There’s no scripted campaign at all, although you will find scripted elements to some of the battles, such as the huge AT-AT units.

Star Wars Battlefront Heroes vs. Villains mode confirmed according to official website

EA and DICE have been quite the tease when it comes to exactly what’s inside the highly anticipated return of Star Wars Battlefront, but today we can add the return of one of the best game modes that the series could muster: Heroes vs. Villains. 

At least, according to the spanish version of the official website for the game, which mentions the game mode explicitly.

EA will delay Star Wars: Battlefront if it’s not ready in November

EA will delay Star Wars: Battlefront if it’s not ready in November

From a business perspective, I imagine EA are pretty set on making sure Star Wars: Battlefront releases on the November 20th date they’ve set. Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases in cinemas just weeks later, and Star Wars fever will be ripe. But EA has said that Battlefront will release when it's ready, and if that requires a delay then that’s what will happen.

Star Wars Battlefront glimpsed running on PC in Tatooine footage

Traditionally when DICE show off games they’re running on PC to show off all those glorious little details. But when demoing Star Wars Battlefront at E3 this year, DICE used PS4 consoles. Great to see what the game’s all about, but not what we PC buffs are really looking for. 

Looks like DICE realise they need to offer a bit of bait for the PC crowd, so the studio has tweeted a short video showing the game’s Tatooine level running on a computer.

FIFA 16 will be "the most balanced yet", thanks to revamped defence and midfield

So EA brought Pele onstage at E3, sat him in his rocking chair and gently encouraged him to ramble on about the “beautiful game". Depending on your perspective, it was either three minutes we’ll never get back, or just the sort of pitch-level nerdiness a game named FIFA needs right now.

After that, they got into the meat of what’s in the game, as they say at EA Sports. Namely revamped defence, more options in midfield and better dribbling.

Star Wars: Battlefront Missions trailer shows rebels surviving incoming Imperial scum

At EA’s E3 press conference we saw some truly stunning action from Star Wars: Battlefront’s 40-player multiplayer. But grand-scale war is not the only thing Battlefront is offering. Missions are a series of single player or co-op modes that bring a little more campaign flavour to the game. EA and DICE showed off a little of what to expect at the Sony press conference.

EA reveals Star Wars Battlefront gameplay, affronts canon with playable Luke fighting Vader on Hoth

EA showed off the most extensive gameplay footage get of Star Wars Battlefront, with a five minute gameplay trailer capturing the Battle of Hoth reinterpreted as a military shooter multiplayer level.

With waves of advancing, player-controlled walkers, player-flown snowspeeders and TIE Fighters whirling overhead, and tons of stormtroopers and Rebel infantry battling in ice trenches, it was pure catnip to Star Wars fans.

EA took the cover off their Need for Speed “reboot" (after an extensive not-quite-two-year hiatus) to showcase how the new Need for Speed is all the best parts of the most popular Need for Speed games, in one game!

The new Need for Speed features custom parts and real-world #brands, drifting and stunts, police chases, and high-speed racing.

It’s a new game, I swear.

EA and Bioware have spilled the beans early on Knights of the Fallen Empire, the next expansion heading to Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Best of all, it’ll be free to all subscribers, and launches on October 27th.

Today on "Adventures in Videogame Branding" we have EA and DICE formally christening the next Mirror's Edge game "Mirror's Edge: Catalyst". They're also keen to point out that this is in no way Mirror's Edge 2, it's a totally different game… unless you liked the first game! In which case, yes! It is just like that thing you loved!

Battlefield 2 mod Project Reality has gone standalone with patch 1.3

In the next iteration of the popular Battlefield 2 mod: Project Reality, the team of modders behind it have made their creation a standalone product, no longer requiring Battlefield 2 in order to play it.

“With EA ceasing support of Battlefield 2 and removing it from online stores, the unavailability of the game has proven difficult for new players. Therefore, with PR:BF2 v1.3, it is no longer a requirement to have Battlefield 2 installed."
