Tell EA to piss off with this pink Darth Vader mod

Battlefront II is going to forever be associated with some boneheaded decisions by EA and DICE. One of the more baffling statements regarding cosmetic microtransactions was that a pink Darth Vader would be in violation of canon, which we al...

Star Wars Battlefront II has upped its credit payouts

Despite the unresolved microtransaction situation, this week is still the week Star Wars Battlefront II kicks off its first season of content. If you're anything like me, you're painstakingly saving up credits for Finn and Phasma before the...

Today's Star Wars Battlefront II patch is mostly small fixes

Were you expecting a rework of Star Wars Battlefront II's currently-disabled microtransaction model? Today's not the day. But DICE has put out an update to clean up a few noticeable issues. Along with some balancing adjustments, the update ...

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...

A better look at Star Wars Battlefront II's story

With a month before launch, DICE is opening up about the Star Wars Battlefront II story campaign. Today's trailer is our best look at it yet, highlighting both the broad strokes ("What do we do now that our Emperor is dead?") and the appear...

Loot boxes aren't considered gambling, claims ESRB

The first major appearance of loot boxes in the western marketplace was in September 2010, when Valve transitioned Team Fortress 2 from a pay-once model to a free-to-play model. Players could earn "crates" that could be opened with purchasa...

Star Wars Battlefront II beta gets a time extension

Electronic Arts have announced that their Open Beta for upcoming online multiplayer title Star Wars Battlefront II has been extended by two days, giving players further opportunity to Live Long and Prosper. Perhaps this is in reaction to th...

What did you think of the Star Wars Battlefront II beta?

This weekend saw Electronic Arts light up the servers for upcoming shooter sequel Star Wars Battlefront II (No, not the 2005 one). The Beta opened on October 4 for pre-order peeps and October 6 for everyone else, before finally going offlin...

Xbox Live goes free for the Battlefront II beta this weekend

The open beta for Star Wars Battlefront II is all the rage right now, but some people might not be sure if they want to pay for Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus just to play a beta. I know I wouldn't, but I also have PC as an option. If y...

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

Now this is what I was missing from DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. The sequel will have an honest-to-goodness campaign that falls between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, hence that double-take-inducing image. Here's a...

Because Star Wars is so big, bigger than it's ever been, there is now a Star Wars thing for just about every social media account and form of media. This includes the "Star Wars Show," which deals with basically all things Jedi and Sith, an...

Star Wars Battlefront II's early access period is set

As is the case with most of EA's big games, Star Wars Battlefront II (read: not Star Wars: Battlefront 2, that old game that is still better than most recent Battlefront entries) will be available in early access form before launc...

Battlefront II will not have a season pass

One of the worst things about 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was that the game shipped with a season pass while being light on content. It would be one thing if the game packed a wallop and had players wanting to return, but gating off a bunc...

Watch the full trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II

If you're like me, your Twitter feed has been filled with a non-stop rush of all things Star Wars. We got a look at the poster for the new movie, its first trailer, the trailer for the final season of Star Wars Rebels, and today, EA pulled ...

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...
