Star Wars Battlefront II gets a new squad system tomorrow

Review: Star Wars Battlefront II

In the time since I posted my review-in-progress for Star Wars Battlefront II, EA temporarily halted the sale of in-game purchases. "This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be ea...

Review in Progress: Star Wars Battlefront II

Star Wars Battlefront II has left me scatterbrained. It's simultaneously the game I wish we would've gotten from DICE last time around and also a worst-case scenario with its far-reaching, impossible-to-ignore loot boxes and progression sys...

Star Wars Battlefront II is a much-needed step up

I've spent a few hours with the Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta, and, you know what? I wouldn't mind playing for a few more hours rolling around as a droid or going HAM as Darth Maul. Shallow as the last game often felt, I stuck w...

Take a look at this week's Star Wars Battlefront II beta

The Star Wars Battlefront II beta is nearly here and based on how well the beta for the last game went, it should be huge. We recapped the modes and maps last week, but now we've got a concise video to match those words. I'm glad DICE is i...

I like where Star Wars Battlefront II's story is headed
