#EA DICE

HANDS-ON STE-VIEWS
I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded f...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...

What is the silliest ability you've had to unlock in a game?

Earlier this week, the increasingly-homeless-looking Steven Hansen wrote up a preview for DICE's upcoming Mirror's Edge Catalyst. He briefly mentioned that new skills have to be unlocked. "An upgrade tree? Why?" Steven asked, rhetorically. ...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst's closed beta is fast approaching

More than two months after learning of a Mirror's Edge Catalyst closed beta, we now know when it'll take place. It has crept up on us, starting very soon -- next week, in fact. Alongside an embargo lifting for the latest round of Mirro...

Lando and Dengar are heading to Star Wars Battlefront

Much to my surprise, the recent Outer Rim expansion for Star Wars Battlefront was enough to pull me back into the game. But the feeling won't last long without a #content drip-feed. I'm restless! Looking ahead, EA has an overview of what's ...

Outer Rim is a better beginning to the Star Wars Battlefront season pass than I thought it'd be. The DLC adds Nien Nunb and Greedo as hero and villain characters, respectively; four smaller-scale maps spread across Tattooine ...   read

Star Wars Battlefront adding Hutt Contracts and other free content next week

You've heard enough of me blabbering on about the Outer Rim DLC coming to Star Wars Battlefront (March 22 for season pass holders; April 5 for standalone purchasers), so I'll keep this brief. DICE is also adding free content to the game ne...

Come peep glimpses at Mirror's Edge Catalyst gameplay

Star Wars Battlefront teases 'Hutt Contracts'

Midway through this new "Free Game Updates" trailer for Star Wars Battlefront, there is a snippet of Jabba the Hutt holding a weapon hologram and the text "Coming Soon: Hutt Contracts." From the way it's presented here, it seems like this w...

John Boyega's trying to get EA to make a single-player Battlefront campaign

Star Wars Battlefront's Outer Rim DLC sounds decent

As attentive fans predicted, Greedo (A New Hope) and Nien Nunb (Return of the Jedi) are indeed coming to Star Wars Battlefront as hero characters. This franchise sure loves its kooky names. Greedo and Nien are part of this month's Outer Rim...

I hope Greedo shows up in Star Wars Battlefront

Concept art for an upcoming Star Wars Battlefront DLC pack, Outer Rim, has spurred speculation about a pair of potential Hero/Villain characters, and they seem entirely plausible to me. The first is Greedo, the green-skinned bounty hunter H...

A Stormtrooper smacking his head is one of Star Wars Battlefront's best easter eggs
