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...

Star Wars Battlefront just cranked out a big patch

EA still isn't done with Star Wars Battlefront yet -- mostly because it still has DLC and a Season Pass to sell! But until more content is out, you can enjoy the benefits of a giant February update. Most notably, a Twilight Hoth map ha...

That bonkers unofficial open world Star Wars Kickstarter has been canceled

A few days ago, on a PC far far away, someone wanted to create an open world Star Wars game. Note that this is a completely unofficial project that would have instantly been swallowed by Disney once it got wind of it. It was an insane ...
