Dragon Age: Inquisition preorders cancelled in India because of local obscenity laws

EA have cancelled all Dragon Age: Inquisition preorders in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh because the game broke “local obscenity laws". EA haven’t clarified which obscenity laws Bioware’s RPG breaks but the game’s Indian distributor, Milestone Interactive, says it is because of the gay characters and sex scenes.

Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer makes the case for BioWare's Orlesian opus one last time

At no point in the Dragon Age: Inquisition launch trailer does the player character stop a passing demon and query the nature of their business in Thedas. In fact, the latest trailer suggests that inquiry ceases to be the name of the game shortly into the new BioWare RPG - whereupon it becomes a game of mouse-scrolling in unabashed wonder about its dank and darkly beautiful locations.

Bioware boss polls fans on what they’d like to see in Mass Effect trilogy re-release

“Bear in mind this is a "wish list" at this point," Aaryn Flynn, general manager at Bioware Edmonton and Montreal said. This was after asking Neogaf readers to tell him what they’d like to see in a Mass Effect re-release.

He suggested higher resolution, all the DLC, and, more excitingly, a seamless experience where each game ran into the next.

Dragon Age Inquisition trailer reveal Vivienne’s parlour tricks are pretty impressive

The decline of parlour tricks is one of the unspoken miseries of the 21st century, going hand in hand with the decline of parlours, and it’s one of the more subtle themes of Dragon Age Inquisition.

The latest trailer goes introduces one of your possible companions, Vivienne. An Orlesian mage, she’s an adviser to Empress Celene and, no doubt, someone good for a laugh when you need some light entertainment after dinner - rabbit from a hat sort of thing.

BioWare grant 12x XP boosts to Old Republic subscribers who pre-order Shadow of Revan

BioWare grant 12x XP boosts to Old Republic subscribers who pre-order Shadow of Revan

This might just be the best way to play Star Wars: The Old Republic - stuffed with stellar single-player stories but hampered by the trickling rate of XP in free-to-play.

BioWare are desperate to force-pull you back into their MMO ahead of its upcoming nostalgia-fuelled expansion, Shadow of Revan. To that end, they're offering a faintly ludicrous 12x storyline XP boost to players who pre-order the expansion and subscribe before December 1.

Dragon Age: Inquisition: Everything We Know

Fulfilling this year’s quota for epic fantasy RPG is Dragon Age: Inquisition. As a BioWare game you can already be safe in the knowledge that it’s a sprawling epic with a huge cast of characters and world suffering constant turmoil. But Inquisition has a lot to prove. After Dragon Age II took a bit of a critical beating, the third game needs to offer the ultimate role-playing experience for the series to be revered once more. 

So what does Dragon Age: Inquisition bring to the table to try and retake the fantasy throne? Here’s Everything We Know.

EA are plotting a new Need for Speed release for 2016

EA are plotting a new Need for Speed release for 2016

Nobody disputed the quality of Need for Speed Rivals when it arrived late last year, but there was a sense the series had quietly run out of road. First, Criterion shrunk down to 17 staff to work on a YouTube-inspired extreme sports experiment. And then Ghost Games, the studio most of Criterion had decamped to, was hit by layoffs.

Last we heard, the new Need for Speed was in a state of flux - but EA have just now started talking about it again.

How Battlefield Hardline has got better since beta

How Battlefield Hardline has got better since beta

We’d originally expected to be holding down left-click to read a perp’s rights to them before Christmas - but early beta feedback was so sharp-tongued that Battlefield Hardline was delayed into 2015.

There’ll be another Battlefield Hardline beta before launch, in which we’ll get to test everything Visceral have changed about the shooter since June. Executive producer Steve Papoutsis says we can expect new approaches to all sorts: especially heavy weapons, faction distinction and recoil.

Bioware address concerns over the absence of healers in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Bioware address concerns over the absence of healers in Dragon Age: Inquisition

It looks like the Templars have stolen all the healers from the upcoming third installment, Dragon Age: Inquisition. While there’s no dedicated healer class, there are instead a multitude of ways of preventing and dealing with damage. Potions and certain abilities effects give your characters a health buffer that enemies will have to whittle through before getting to your precious red stuff.

Bioware developer Patrick Weekes has taken to the forums to quell the concerns of the community. “I've completed two playthroughs of Dragon Age: Inquisition on Normal, and I'm now working through a playthrough on Hard." said Weekes. “Here were my concerns, and here is what I've found and how I've handled things."

DICE: "we lost player trust" because of Battlefield 4 launch

DICE: "we lost player trust" because of Battlefield 4 launch

It is a matter of public record that Battlefield 4 had a shonky launch, with players, developers and publishers now all in agreement that the DICE shooter touched down with all the grace and elegance of a swan landing on a motorway because it's stupid swan-brain thinks roads look like rivers. Get it together, swans.

But while swans refuse to change their ways or admit to their mistakes, an introspective DICE are admitting that the woeful launch and subsequent issues that have plagued Battlefield 4 have harmed player trust in the series.

You might find a ghost on your toilet in Sims 4 this month, and in your pools in November

If you’re suddenly seeing your deceased Sims return to life in a more ethereal form, don’t panic: it’s just a new free update to The Sims 4 to celebrate that spooky time at the end of the month. Your beloved Sims that have passed away now may roam your household causing all sorts of mischief. Their behaviour is influenced by how they bit the dust; I hope no one died in a house fire.

Next month we’ll also see the return of pools, which is nice. You can expect to see the population of ghosts who died by drowning to sharply increase when that happens.

Before the Fall Patch: long-awaited Battlefield 4 fixes due today on Origin

DICE will implement a “fairly massive" list of Battlefield 4 fixes today. You can tell the 1.16GB update’s a biggie because it has a name rather than a number: the Fall Patch will address many of the issues that’ve most irked players in recent months, including problems with the HUD, ‘netcode’, player movement and peering through reticules.

Visceral on Battlefield Hardline: "we take shipping a working game pretty seriously"

We can all remember the bug-ridden launch of Battlefield 4, which thankfully has gotten a lot better these days. DICE sure does, and it also extends to Visceral - the developers of the upcoming Battlefield Hardline. Speaking to GameRevolution at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, creative director Ian Milham wants to reassure us that this time it will be different.

“What you're basically asking is, 'Is your game going to work?' and the answer is yes, it's gonna work."

Battlefield 4 "Autumn Patch" sheds all the bugs; further improves netcode

It’s time for some spring autumn cleaning in Battlefield 4, and there’s hefty long patch notes to go with it. Most notable is the further improvement to the infamous netcode, which is now set automatically to high as default to all users. A slew of game modes are also being added to Obliteration Competitive sub-game mode. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper patch without weapon changes too.
