Over a year after its discovery, a long-locked puzzle door in Battlefield 1 is finally open. Inside? Why, more puzzles, of course.
Petri Levälahti, aka Berduu, is a screenshot artist whose images we’ve featured a bunch of times here. For the past year, though, his hobby has also been his profession.
One of the public facing members of The Sims’s dev team took to the forums to address rumors of the end of The Sims 4's development.
Electronic Arts takes a lot of shit from a lot of people for many of its business practices. So its decision to just give away a big FIFA 18 World Cup update—something they used to charge for—is a pleasant surprise.
FIFA 18 will get a free World Cup update on May 29 on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC. It includes online tournaments and a World Cup Ultimate Team mode, as well as a custom mode in which you can create your own World Cup team from scratch.
Loot boxes in FIFA 18, Overwatch, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are now illegal in Belgium, with the country’s legislators declaring today that if the games’ publishers don’t remove the offending microtransactions, people behind the games could face fines and even time behind bars.
If you have been looking for the video game equivalent of marriage counseling, boy do I have a suggestion for you: Grab your significant other and go play A Way Out.
Star Wars Battlefront II stirred up controversy at launch with grindy progression systems and questionable loot boxes. Over the last six months, the game has added new modes and done its best to win back players. Here’s where things stand today.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s latest update brings microtransactions back to the game, allowing players to spend premium currency on cosmetic outfits. It’s an improvement over the ability granting loot boxes from early access but pricey skins add an unwelcome new grind to a game.
A Way Out seems like a tough sell. The cooperative narrative game, which requires you to play the whole thing alongside a second person, probably isn’t for everyone. But it sure was for a lot of people—more than EA seems to have expected.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will bring back micro-transactions on April 18th as part of a large game update. Crystals will be purchasable and used for cosmetics only. The update also adds an Ewok hunting mode. Yub-nub?
Electronic Arts’ Search for Extraordinary Experiences (SEED) Division—which sounds like an anime space force—has created a “self-learning AI-agent” that has managed to teach itself how to play Battlefield 1 multiplayer.
At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Jason Schreier and I sat down with Aaryn Flynn, formerly of BioWare, to talk about his time working under EA on games like Dragon Age: Inquisition and Anthem.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s new update overhauls the game’s loot box laden progression system. One of players’ biggest complaints since before the game was even officially out was how hard it was to unlock iconic characters like Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. A new patch finally unlocks every hero character in the…
I downloaded The Sims Mobile to see if it would let me trap a virtual person in a bathroom-less building. Now I’m two working mothers raising a child. I couldn’t be happier, at least not without having to wait out some sort of happiness timer.
Here’s a nightmare I’ve actually had: I’m a soldier in a war, and no one’s told me what to do. Bullets are whizzing overhead and death could arrive at any moment. Everyone around me seems to know what they’re doing, but not me. I shouldn’t be here. I’m just some guy. I sit there, paralyzed, waiting to die.
I’ve played hours of the remastered version of Burnout Paradise prior to today’s release of the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. So how are the higher resolution textures and enhanced lighting effects? I don’t know, man. I’m just playing Burnout Paradise again, and it’s as wonderful as it ever was.
Months after removing controversial microtransactions from Star Wars Battlefront II, publisher EA today announced its plans to bring them back, this time tied only to cosmetics rather than gameplay.
Nobody asked for this, but UFC President Dana White has been added a playable fighter to EA UFC 3. And since White is a cantankerous blowhard who spouts obvious untruths on a regular basis, it’s fitting that his in-game stats do not even remotely resemble his capabilities in real life. At least he’s a free download?
EA’s $30-a-year Origin Access service for PC gamers is getting six Batman games today. Subscribers will be able to play all three Lego Batman games as well as Arkham Asylum, Origins and City in full at no extra cost (adding to a library mostly comprised of EA games). UPDATE: Asked if Batman’s coming to EA Access on…
