We learned this morning that Mass Effect: Andromeda is being delayed until 2017, but it looks as though Electronic Arts its right on track for a 2016 debut for Titanfall 2. The mech-infused game is scheduled to land during fiscal Q3 according to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, which means that it should blast onto B&M and digital store shelves somewhere between October and the end of December (barring any last-minute hiccups). Interestingly enough, the launch timeframe will put Titanfall 2 right up against Battlefield 1, which will launch on October 21st. But Wilson isn’t worried about cannibalization... Read more...
Fans of the Mass Effect franchise are going to have to wait just a little bit longer for the fourth title in BioWare's third-person sci-fi shooter, Mass Effect: Andromeda, which the developer confirmed has been delayed until "early 2017." In the meantime, BioWare promises another update at the EA Play conference on June 12. The delay isn't a total surprise. Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen hinted that things were slightly off schedule during a recent earnings call. He said at the time that Mass Effect: Andromeda would release in EA's fourth fiscal quarter, which works out to the first quarter... Read more...
Brace yourself, Battlefield 5's world premier is coming. In the meantime, go ahead and grab your detective cap, you're going to need it. In anticipation of today's world premier, which is scheduled for 4PM Eastern (1PM Pacific), DICE and Electronic Arts have taken to social media to tease eager gamers with clues about the Battlefield 5, including an extremely short video. The clip is less than 10 seconds long and you have to look very closely for subtle hints. All you see is the neck up of a rendered soldier with detailed facial features, including dirt and the pits of his skin. It's an impressive... Read more...
Titanfall fans, rejoice! EA and Respawn Entertainment have today announced that Titanfall 2 is coming. We're not being given much information about the game right now, but apparently we'll learn a lot more at EA's Play event on June 12. At this point, all of the information available is tied to the forthcoming game trailer below, which shows a fallen space capsule while a mech quickly approaches, and the voiceover utters some point-blank wisdom: "The problem with being a hero is, you have to be willing to die for what you believe in." While much of what will make Titanfall 2 interesting is being... Read more...
Get out your driving gloves and buckle up folks, the newest Need for Speed title from developer Ghost Games and publisher Electronic Arts is burning rubber to PCs next month with a few new fancy features in tow. One of those is a 4K resolution option with uncapped framerates. If you have the necessary horsepower to drive a 4K gaming experience, you'll be treated to some sweet visuals. Ghost Games also added manual transmission support to the forthcoming PC release. This was one of the notable omissions when the Need for Speed reboot launched to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in early November... Read more...
Sorry, not sorry Denver Broncos fans, but your battered team led by Satan Manning is going to lose the Super Bowl. Yes, that's a prediction of a bitter New England Patriots fan (me), but also that of Electronic Arts' Madden NFL 16 simulation. Before you dismiss it as just a video game, consider that there are plenty of reasons why you should take the prediction seriously. EA's Madden franchise has a favorable history in predicting the Super Bowl winner. How favorable? Try 9 out of 12. That's right, out of 12 attempts at predicting a Super Bowl winner by way of a game simulation, EA's Madden titles... Read more...
With all due respect, if watching the official launch trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront doesn't get you pumped for the game's release next month, you might not have a pulse. Seriously, we think it's even listed as a warning sign for a zombie related disease in WebMD. That also means the pressure is on developer DICE and publisher Electronic Arts to deliver an epic multiplayer experience that lives up to the pre-release hype. Though the newest Battlefront title will be the third in the series, it's not a sequel to the previous versions, but a reboot. You'll play from either a first-person or third-person... Read more...
The last thing the PC gaming industry needs right now is for another high profile game to debut with performance hampering bugs or other issues that detract from the experience. With that in mind, developer Ghost said it's pushing the release date for the PC version of Need for Speed to Spring 2016 so that it can tweak a few things. Chief among them is an unlocked frame rate, something that Ghost says PC gamers made clear "is a massive priority" (and Ghost fully agrees). Ghost will also use the additional time to improve the game's graphics and code the same content updates that will have already... Read more...
Market research firm NPD Group released its game sales data for the month of August, which were down 10 percent year-over-year to $207.9 million. This year's new releases just couldn't live up to the blockbuster titles that came out a year ago, including Diablo III for consoles and The Last of Us for PlayStation 4.This timer around, it was EA's Madden NFL 16 that topped the games sales chart, followed by Minecraft. Yes, Minecraft , and that's indicative of why sales are down. Having a game that made its first appearance in 2009 in alpha form and in 2011 as a polished product take the number two... Read more...
Electronic Arts is getting ready to release it's newest Madden game, Madden NFL 2016, to various game consoles tomorrow (August 25, 2016), though if you're anxious to hit the gridiron, you can score a copy for free for the Xbox One today, a day early. All you have to do is enter a promo code in Uber and cross your fingers. You're not guaranteed to get a free copy, and considering that demand will be "VERY HIGH" with limited availability, it amounts to a Hail Mary pass. Nevertheless, free copies are out there for the taking, and I've already seen one of my Facebook contacts boast about scoring one... Read more...
There were lots of juicy bits at this year's E3 convention, among them a full five minutes of actual gameplay footage from the third installment in the Star Wars Battlefront series. What makes this trailer so exciting is that the gameplay is plucked from a PlayStation 4, as opposed to renders made with the game engine or cutscenes that don't actually depict gameplay graphics. It's a wild five-minute ride filled with TIE fighters, X-Wings (which you get to fly, by the way), AT-ATs, AT-STs, rebel troopers, stormtrooopers, lasers, lightsabers, and, well, you get the point. When... Read more...
There are several different contraptions designed to allow men to simulate what it's like being pregnant, but as most women will attest, none of them truly duplicate the experience. That's especially true when it comes to the act of child birth -- we're just not equipped for such things. However, that hasn't stopped male characters in The Sims 4 from getting pregnant. The quirky phenomenon appears to be an unintended side effect of the The Sims 4: Get to Work expansion pack. It's one of the more hilarious bugs the add-on brings to the game, and it has some Sims players intentionally trying to get... Read more...
This has been a tremendous week for Star Wars fans. First we got to see Han Solo and Chewbacca make an emotional appearance in the newest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer (the second official trailer Disney has put out) and now Electronic Arts is treating us to a visual smorgasbord of cinema-quality footage showing the forthcoming Star Wars Battlefront game. Had you not known it was a game, it would be easy to mistake the trailer for an upcoming movie. Instead, you're seeing actual game engine footage of the multiplayer shooter, which was unveiled Friday at Star Wars Celebration, an annual... Read more...
The much anticipated first person shooter Battlefield Hardline released to retail in North America today for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows (it will launch in the EU on March 19th and in the UK on March 20). With the release comes a new live action trailer that plays out like preview for an action movie flick. Developed by Visceral Games in collaboration with EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts, the game is notable because it deviates from previous Battlefield titles by focusing on the age-old cops and robbers theme rather than traditional...
