Good, good: Battlefield Hardline delayed to 2015

Visceral Games is pushing Battlefield Hardline from October 2014 to early 2015 in order to better meet player feedback from the beta it ran this year. After Battlefield 4's troubled launch, I doubt any of us need to be convin...

by Bill Zoeker

EA has garnered quite a reputation for being jerks over the past couple of years, with the rough launch of Battlefield 4 being one of the many reasons people are upset with them. CEO Andrew Wilson offered his apologies, sort of.

DICE isn't sure why fans like Battlefield: Bad Company so much

DICE knows there's a demand for another Battlefield: Bad Company -- but it doesn't know why that demand exists, exactly. Maybe we can help break it down for the studio. "Some people say they found the multiplayer controls fas...

Mirror's Edge 2 to 'refine' first-person combat, probably be ruined

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson is talking Mirror's Edge 2 and it doesn't help my unearned cautious optimism for a great free running game in the vein of the first.  "What I can say is that if the last ga...

EA: Battlefield 4 was a victim of its own ambition

To put it bluntly, Battlefield 4 was broken when it came out. Everyone's accepted that fact, including EA itself. EA CEO Andrew Wilson recently chimed in to candidly say that Battlefield 4's shortcomings had to do with i...

EA teases new Mirror's Edge ahead of E3

Electronic Arts revealed a new Mirror's Edge title at E3 last year, but hasn't really talked much about the upcoming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC game since.  Well, that figures to change soon. A lone piece of concept...

Battlefield 3 is free to download on Origin photo
Battlefield 3 is free to download on Origin
by Jordan Devore

Electronic Arts' On the House program for Origin lets users download free games for a limited time and keep them. It is obviously a way to get the service installed on more computers, and it's EA so some people are going to complain about that, but I'm a fan of the promotion.

Past titles have included Dead Space and Plants vs. Zombies. Right now, through June 3, it's Battlefield 3. Go crash some jets, for me. (So I'm not the only one embarrassing himself.)

This is one impressive Battlefield 4 fan movie

YouTube channel The Two Scotsmen released the first part of a cinematic series depicting a third-person view of Battlefield 4's combat. There's not much in terms of action yet, but I'm really impressed by how all the scenes were captured and put together. Remember when machinima films were going to be the next big thing? The Internet sure was naive back in 2006.

There is a GIANT shark in Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 has a ton of easter eggs. Such as the case with the Megalodon, which can be discovered in the Naval Strike DLC on the Nansha Strike map. And yes, you will die if you get caught underneath its jump.
