A Bioware Animator Has Made An Awesome Short Film

EA’s Dante’s Inferno, released back in 2010, is a game you probably haven’t thought about in almost a decade. But animator Tal Peleg is out here doing superfan work, bringing the series back with a professionally made short film.

EA has teamed up with Petroglyph to remaster not only Command & Conquer, but Red Alert and both games’ expansions, all in one package. No word on a release date—the project has just started—but with members of the original Westwood team working on it, it should end up much better than a silly mobile game.

On August 26, a shooter at a Madden tournament in Jacksonville, Florida opened fire at the event, wounding 11 people and killing two, Taylor Robertson, 29, and Elijah Clayton, 22.

A meme—“Press F to pay respects”—based on a ridiculous Call of Duty moment was widely used during a Jacksonville tribute stream last night to express grief over the shootings.

Battlefield V's Beta Feels Too Slow Battlefield V's Beta Feels Too Slow

I dove into the Battlefield V beta last night. While I enjoyed the tense gunfights, I’m not so sure about some of the game’s changes. From shifts in how ammo is handled to changes to weapon customization, my fun was tempered by some skepticism about what my favorite multiplayer shooter might be like at launch.

EA’s livestream tribute to the victims of the Jacksonville shooting will run from 5-6:30 PM ET on Thursday and will be hosted by members of the Madden community, according to an EA post. The company is also running a GoFundMe tribute fund for the victims, pledging that 100% of the money collected will go to those…

EA has delayed the next big Battlefield game a month, pushing it back to November 20 for what developer DICE says are “final adjustments to core gameplay.” There’s another good reason for the delay, though: the competition.

It’s been a wild week for eagle-eyed fans of Star Wars Battlefront II. On Wednesday they thought they spotted an unannounced droid in the background of some new official artwork for the game. A rep for the game threw cold water on that theory but then clarified today that, actually, these both were and weren’t the…

FIFA 19's Cursed Cover Has Been Fixed FIFA 19's Cursed Cover Has Been Fixed

It’s been a bad couple of years for the cover stars of major sports games. Big transfers of star players like Kyrie Irving, Neymar and LeBron James have left the marketing for NBA 2K18, PES 2018 and 2K19 in need of repairs, and we can now add FIFA 19 to the list as well.

EA Kills "Open Source" Version Of SimCity 2000 EA Kills "Open Source" Version Of SimCity 2000

Earlier this year, a game called OpenSC2K was released on GitHub, claiming to be a free, open source version of Maxis’ classic. Turns out it wasn’t as open source as it could have been, though, because EA have had the game removed from the platform.

One FIFA player in the United Kingdom filed a GDPR request to get EA to send him all of the data they had on him, only to find that he had spent over $10,000 on the game in two years. Check out the full story on Eurogamer.

The Empire is without an emperor. Last week, a Star Wars Battlefront II update apparently brought back the evil Emperor Palpatine’s game-breaking ability to shoot lightning through walls. An emergency fix completely removed him from the game, and it’s unclear when he’ll return.
