DICE is moving to monthly updates for Battlefield 1

Every few days I'll run across some wild gif from Battlefield 1 and think, "Hey, I should get back into that at some point." It hasn't happened, in part because I don't own the expansion pass, but it might soon. In a blog post, DICE laid ou...   read

Battlefield 1's Winter Update brings ribbons and higher level caps

Aside from They Shall Not Pass, an upcoming Battlefield 1 expansion, DICE has also been toiling away on the game's Winter Update. I don't like seeing the "W" word this time of year -- no more snow, please! -- but I do like the sound of high...   read

Star Wars Battlefront II will span multiple eras

Based on where Star Wars Battlefront started and where it has ended up after numerous updates and several paid expansion packs, I'm expecting better things for the sequel. A story mode is, of course, the big one. We already knew to expect t...   read

Spread holiday cheer by taking down the Death Star for double XP

Here's an exceptionally good deal on Battlefield 1's collector's edition

Battlefield 1 is, without a doubt, one of the best games of the 2016. The campaign that's structured as five television episode-size vignettes works surprisingly well. The style of it all goes a long way toward effectively portraying t...   read

Don't expect another Battlefield for 'a couple of years'

Battlefield 1 is here to stay for a while, and I wouldn't have it any other way. It has great bones! And, in time, they should grow stronger. I'm loving the WWI setting, far more than I thought I would going in, and that has resulted in a b...   read
