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...

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto liked Star Wars VII

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...

The Return of the Star Wars Humble Bundle

Star Wars is no longer the Internet's cool thing. I know that because I have an account on Twitter.com and almost no one is drooling over Star Wars like they were in December. Instead, it's all Oscar talk and Bernie Sanders (...

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...

Disney will not allow EA to break canon with Star Wars Battlefront

That bonkers unofficial open world Star Wars Kickstarter has been canceled
