Star Wars Battlefront II review: So this is how lootboxes die, with thunderous applause

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  There’s been an awakening. People aren’t happy with lootboxes, and Star Wars Battlefront II has found itself the womp rat facing down a blaster shot of outrage. What should have been a superior follow up to the lackluster first entry falls flat in more ways than one. The rebooted franchise may look gorgeous, but it’s been let down by ...[Read More]

Star Wars Battlefront II looks like it’s learned from the mistakes of the first

This morning we were treated to a trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, which for reasons that escape me isn’t called Star Wars Battlefront IV. A sequel to Battlefront‘s 2015 reboot, which had just a few problems, it looks like DICE/EA have learned from the past. The first reboot was a pretty lackluster experience, sure it looked amazing, but the gameplay was severely limited. With no ...[Read More]

First up on July 21 is the Skirmish update, which adds the ability to play certain game modes offline. Offline players in Battlefront have so far been stuck with the lackl...[Read More]

Check out Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’s map online ahead of launch

So, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was supposed to be releasing in a few days, but was last month delayed until June 7 (boo). That’s another two weeks before we can return to the arguably the best Parkour simulator in gaming history. On the bright side though, EA are giving you all the opportunity to check out the city of Glass, where Catalyst is set, before the game comes out. There’s a...[Read More]

3 Lessons we hope EA’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 has learned

Yesterday EA CFO Blake Jorgensen confirmed during a financial earnings call that a new Star Wars Battlefront game is slated to come out in 2017. While a sequel to a game arriving within two years of the original is hardly a crazy concept, given the final DLC pack included with Battlefront’s pricey season pass is due to release in the early parts of that same year one could hardly be blamed f...[Read More]

I praised P.T.’s use of “curiosity/pants-shitting-terror” to guide the player in a piece discussing its upcoming indie spiritual successor, All...[Read More]

  Ever wondered what it would feel like to actually be in the Star Wars universe? If you answered no, then you are incorrect, that wasn’t a hypothetical question… also, what’s wrong with you?
