Classic Star Wars Battlefront 2 Multiplayer Restored

It's been years since Star Wars Battlefront 2, no, the real Battlefront 2 from 2005, has had multiplayer. Years ago someone put order 66 into action on GameSpy and that was the end of the classic game's multiplayer aspirations but today we're pleased to let you know that because of a partnership between GOG and…

This is a Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

The latest trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II features the narration talents of one John Boyega (Finn in The Force Awakens), and a pretty good-looking demo reel as eye candy. With an early section of the trailer devoted to enumerating the improvements over the first Battlefront, it's clear that DICE and EA are well aware…

Lets begin by all generously pointing and laughing at the “gameplay” trailer like it's the unpopular kid with its pants down. There's less gameplay in that minute and a half than my right nut but the trailer is marked as in-engine footage so there may be some hints as to what we might expect in…

No, not Pandemic's Battlefront 2. The new one, developed by DICE and published by EA, slated to come out later this year. After a strong showing at E3, recognizing that they had made quite a few missteps in everything from progression to the game itself, Battlefront 2 seems to march ever onward towards its fall…

After a long wait for clear information about the upcoming Battlefront 2, we finally got a trailer to gnaw on for a bit.

Battlefront II’s First Look Is Upon Us

It's been rather quiet around the interwebs in regards to the next Battlefront game over the last couple of months. All we know so far is that it will get the absolutely-much-needed Single Player campaign experience missing from Star Wars: Battlefront. Hopefully we'll learn more about it on April 15th, that's when DICE will be showing us…

Coming off of the extremely successful launch of Battlefield 1, you’d think that DICE had all but forgotten about their malnourished Star Wars Battlefront game. However, with the release of the Rogue One DLC, the fourth and final DLC coming on December 6th, DICE has also put out the Ultimate Edition of Star Wars Battlefront,…

Battlefront’s Third DLC Takes Us to the Death Star

Touting five maps, the classic Death Star trench run, Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing, and more, the third DLC in the cycle for EA’s Battlefront looks to add more variety to somewhat overshadowed game’s release. A new game mode, weapons, gadgets and two new heroes round out the offering, offered as part of the Season Pass. Long…

Battlefront to Bring Back Bots

Star Wars Battlefront was a disappointment in a lot of gamer’s minds, especially at launch. It was mostly carried by its name while not containing enough substance. To be fair it did get more content...for a price, but it had nothing on the older Battlefront games. Well today DICE announced that they will be bringing…

E3: EA Conference 2016

So it’s E3, in case you didn’t know. And EA kicked off the event in a, frankly, barely lukewarm manner. In the sixty minute run time, there were certainly a lot of words, but very little actually said. It wasn’t what one would call a terrible presentation, but it was most decidedly underwhelming. Falling short…

EA, What’s All This Then?

Things are looking up for EA right now. Not merely financially (Battlefront moved fourteen million units) but with gamers alike. They seem to be moving back towards their “maybe we should give our customers what they want?” approach to fleecing us for every penny. Something they have a habit of doing about once a decade.…
