EA DICE

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...
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...
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...
At E3 2014, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson told Game Informer that the studio has a desire to further involve its community in the development process, possibly along the lines of what we've seen on Steam Early Ac...
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...
DICE's promised netcode improvements for Battlefield 4 are rolling out this week. An update is available now on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC and will hit PS4 and Xbox One later this week. On PC, PS4, and Xbox One, there's a new high...
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 c...
Tomorrow on PlayStation Network, PS Plus subscribers will be able to download a trial version of Battlefield 4 -- just the base game, not the expansions -- that's good for 20 hours of play time. More than enough for new playe...
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.
GameSpy Technology is shutting down on May 31, 2014 and that's real bad news for the many games that rely on the service for online functionality such as multiplayer matchmaking and leaderboards. It's largely unclear what wil...
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.
Because Battlefield 4 -- a game released five months ago -- is still having issues, the newest bit of DLC was delayed on both Xbox One and PC. After two days the Xbox One version is now good to go this morning,...
The Naval Strike DLC for Battlefield 4 launches today for Battlefield 4 Premium members ahead of its wide release on April 8, 2014. That was the plan, anyway. The new content (four maps, Titan mode, a hovercraft) will be late...
It's been months and months since I last touched Battlefield 4, for a number of reasons -- some of them the fault of the game, some of them not. I'm thinking the impending Naval Strike DLC, showcased rather excellently in th...
In a blog post about the current state of Battlefield 4's multiplayer, DICE wrote that fixing netcode issues with the game is "one of the top priorities." I'd sure hope so -- few things are more irritating in competitive game...
DICE is still in damage-control mode over Battlefield 4 and the latest attempt to curry favor is a month-long player appreciation event, starting February 1. There will be a double XP weekend (two for Premium members), daily ...
As part of an ongoing attempt to fix its game as much as possible before pumping out any more DLC, DICE has launched another update for Battlefield 4 on PC, as well as updates for PS3 and PS4 intended to improve general ...
If you see "Battlefield 4" or "DICE," it's likely the word "patch" is about to follow. I don't see that changing anytime soon, unfortunately. The latest patch for the PC version of the game, out now, addresses an issue with t...
Hey hey! This video was supposed to go up yesterday afternoon, but a series of unfortunate events resulted in it going up very late last night, and then internet witchcraft prevented me from putting up a post. So, if you don...
With this week's release of the China Rising expansion for Battlefield 4 Premium players amidst the game displaying varying degrees of brokenness depending on the platform, DICE is in something of a messy situation, to put it...
Battlefield 4, at launch, was a pretty hectic experience on the PC, but the same can't be said about the watered-down 360 and PS3 versions of the game. Simply put, the maps are built around the concept of huge 64 player battl...
Can DICE fix crashes in Battlefield 4 across all versions of the game before its "We're sorry!" double XP event rolls out on Thursday? While I wish them the best of luck, it's difficult to be optimistic. The studio has put ou...
DICE says that its number-one priority is to address Battlefield 4's launch issues. According to general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, "...we are so serious that we have the entire team working to stabilize the game and we w...
It was reassuring to hear that some people within DICE were interesting in working on Battlefield: Bad Company again. I quite like straight-faced Battlefield games -- their multiplayer, anyway -- but the Bad Company titles ha...
You can go ahead and mute the audio before clicking play on this video for Second Assault, an upcoming Battlefield 4 map pack. The dramatic voice over just isn't doing it for me -- not when, really, all I needed was straight...
Battlefield 4 unloaded over 133,000 copies on the Japanese market in its debut, according to data obtained by tracking authority Media Create. The PlayStation 3 version of DICE's first-person shooter vanquished all challenger...
It's to be expected that if you're playing a Battlefield title at launch, you are more than likely going to encounter technical issues. Battlefield 4 is no exception, with a number of problems reported for both PC and console...
The most fun I've ever had in a Battlefield game was in 2010's Battlefield: Bad Company 2. That's not to say it's the best title in the series or anything like that, mind you -- just that it arrived at the right time for me a...
What, you didn't think this trailer was going to be all pleasantries, did you? That wouldn't be very Battlefield-like. Well, there's that nice bit where the guy gently tosses an apple to a little girl. Apple-tossin' asi...
I quite liked my time spent with the Battlefield 4 beta, even if I never got to witness that darn skyscraper falling down first-hand. (I did, however, participate in some absurd parachute gunfights after diving off the thing ...
There's a new post over on the Battlefield 4 blog describing the title's upcoming "Spectator" mode coming to PC and next generation consoles. I'm going to now accomplish in 15 words what took over 1,600 for the gang at DICE: ...
The second of five expansions for Battlefield 4, Second Assault, will be available first for Xbox One players. It's another one of those timed exclusives that Microsoft is so into, unfortunately. If you want to play the DLC a...
The open beta for Battlefield 4 starts today for the majority of players, and you can get your fill of reckless destruction one way or another. You could watch this trailer which showcases Siege of Shanghai on Xbox 360, or you could jump into the action and be the one that rains death upon anyone that stands in your way. One option is pretty alpha, the other a bit more beta.
As a studio, DICE "love[s] the Bad Company series," but a new installment isn't a point of focus right now. Creative director Lars Gustavsson told Polygon that "My feeling is that I would love to do it. For me, when we starte...
Remember when Battlefield 3 came out and all everyone was doing was impotently running helicopters into the ground? DICE wasn't happy with the its flying learning curve, according to Battlefield 4 creative director Lars Gust...
Electronic Arts and DICE have rolled out the Battlefield 4 beta. Those that are Battlefield 3 Premium members, have pre-ordered Battlefield 4 Digital Delux Edition, or registered their copy of Medal of Honor: Warfighter (eit...
Battlefield 4 will start off with 10 multiplayer maps, each of which is playable across all seven modes. One of them, Zavod 311, takes place in and around an abandoned Soviet tank factory. It's playable at the Eurogamer Expo ...
Battlefield 4's multiplayer is something I'm really looking forward to, and now all the game modes have been revealed. Conquest – All-out vehicle warfare mixed with intense infantry action across land, air and sea Domi...
The way I see it, it wouldn't be Battlefield without a beta. In recent years, I've transitioned into becoming more of a casual player of the series and, like with Battlefield 3, my experience with the new game, at least earl...
Oh Battlefield 4 multiplayer, how I can't wait to be obsessed with you. Single-player? Hah, no thanks. Multiplayer though? Oh yes. Yes yes yes please. This promo video covers pretty much all the stuff we already know that mu...
