  1. Dice kicked off EA Play by dropping some details on Battlefield V's multiplayer. They also confirmed the World War II shooter's rumored battle royale mode. A trailer cinematic gameplay trailer highlighted the game's improved destruction, as well as new mechanics such as vaulting through windows. Players will now be able to customize the appearance of characters, weapons, and vehicles. A "reimagined" battle royale mode will retain the series' focus on teamwork, vehicles, and destruction. Destruction will be a major focus of this release. With explosions taking apart fortifications and tanks being able to plow through buildings, the digital battlefields will constantly be shifting. Dice didn't reveal any more than that, but promised to dive deeper into it later this year. Finally, Dice briefly touched on the War Stories campaign, stating we'll get our first look at it during Microsoft's E3 briefing tomorrow. In the meantime, check out Battlefield V's multiplayer trailer below. EA also stated that fans can expect to see the reveal of one of their story campaigns at Microsoft's press conference tomorrow. Battlefield V will release on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

  5. Back in 2008, developer DICE took a major risk on a game called Mirror's Edge. It tackled one of the most difficult genres, the first-person platformer. At the time, many in the gaming community considered platforming from a first-person perspective to be the bane of many games and the idea of constructing an entire game around that concept seemed ridiculous. Despite that, DICE pushed ahead and made their game a reality. It starred Faith Connors, a female protagonist of color, as a Runner, one of the few people able to travel outside of an oppressive government's near omni-present surveillance. Using Faith's parkour skills, players had to traverse environments that made use of a shocking, gorgeously clean aesthetic. It was at times clumsy and disorienting, but functional and it gained a major following. Does Mirror's Edge hold up eight years later? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. This episode contains some explicit language. Outro music: Mirror's Edge 'Clear Reflections' by Sir_NutS (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03003) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!

  8. Hey Guys.. This isn't so much an idea as it is sharing an opportunity. We were lucky enough to get these items from Wyrmwood to give away for fundraising. I wanted to put this out there so that everyone has a chance that may want a chance. Purpleheart Tabletop Dice Tray ($180 Value) Purpleheart Dice Vault ($75 value), Purpleheart Hero Vault ($70 Value) Every $5 is a entry, so if you donate $20, that's 4 entries, and so on. http://www.extra-life.org/participant/ShawnTodd Donations will be taken up until Extra Life game day (Nov 5th, 2016) and winners of the items will be notified and contacted through their emails/facebook, etc on or about Nov 6th, 2016 after game day has finished.
  9. DICE showed of Battlefield 1's first gameplay trailer during EA Play's live event. The video highlighted the World War I-era shooter's standout features, such as behemoth vehicle assaults, dynamic weather, and refined destructibility. Unpredictable, ever-changing weather conditions are designed to continually alter playstyles, presenting new gameplay options with each match. Elements such as rain and fog require players to approach the battlefield with different tactics to find new ways of engaging the enemy. DICE is also refining Battlefield's destructibility to further allow players to blast their own path through maps to invent unique strategies. DICE revealed Operations, the multiplayer arena where players can take control of massive vehicles - dubbed "behemoths" - to turn the tide of conflicts in their favor. Air ships, battleships, and armored trains can be controlled to lay waste to scores of enemies and shift the momentum in the massive, interconnected clashes. The gameplay trailer was highlighted by an explosive dogfight between a zeppelin airship and a squad of fighter planes. Battlefield 1 is getting an open beta later this summer for those looking to take a zeppelin for a test spin a few months early. Otherwise, circle October 28 as the date Battlefield 1 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. View full article

  11. Electronic Arts held their first-ever EA Play press event earlier today. If you missed out on the festivities, we’ve got you covered with this handy summary of all the big announcements and glossy new trailers. EA CEO Andrew Wilson kicked things off by hyping the EA Play format, admitting that it’d be impossible to sufficiently show off everything they’re working on in only an hour. So instead, think of this as a taste of the great projects in development and “opening the door to players, influencers, media, and partners” and inviting them to play. After a quick shout-out from Peter Moore, broadcasting live via satellite from another EA Live event in London, Wilson ran down the line-up, including details for Mass Effect: Andromeda, a glimpse into upcoming Star Wars projects, and a Battlefield 1 gameplay footage. Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella welcomed PlayStation 4 players to the world of Titanfall 2. He then revealed the first multiplayer gameplay for Titanfall’s sophomore outing. Building upon the foundation laid in the first game, Titanfall 2 features six new titans, expanded customization options and deeper progression. Online looks to retain the same chaotic action and David vs Goliath-esque encounters. Respawn is planning a pre-launch multiplayer ‘technical test,” which players can sign up for by visiting Titanfall’s website. “For the four people who didn’t see the leak this morning,” Zampella officially confirmed a single-player campaign for Titanfall 2. This offline story mode will delve deeper into the Titan/pilot relationship as well as expand on the series’ mythos in general. Titanfall 2 releases October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A new Madden 17 trailer was used as the flag bearer to wave EA’s new eSport initiative. Three new competitive events – Challenger, Premier, and EA Major, are poised to enhance competitive play among elite players. Challenger events let players host their own tournaments, Premiers will be larger gatherings hosted by both gaming and non-gaming partners, and EA Major are marquee events that pit the best players in the world against each other. A new Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer provided the most substantial look at the game yet, but details surrounding its plot remain elusive. BioWare did share that the game is built using the Frostbite 3 engine, and the team promises to build upon the elements players adored in the original trilogy. BioWare boasts Andromeda features the greatest amount of player freedom than in any game they’ve made. Frostbite 3 isn't the only big change coming to FIFA 17. EA's popular soccer title is getting a significant new mode in a story campaign chronicling life of rising soccer star Alex Hunter. Additionally, premier league managers are set to be featured and large-scale improvements have been made to player A.I. and physical play. EA continues its support of independent developers with the announcement of EA Originals. The initiative aims to support smaller titles by providing their development teams with the resources to bring their vision to life and thrive as a studio (such as allowing creators to earn 100% of their games’ profits). The first title to emerge from this is a whimsical title called Fe from Swedish developer Zoink. Set in a stylized forest, players control a cub with no memory of his past. By communicating with both creatures and plant life thorough song, players unlock new parts of the forest to explore. They must also combat the Silent Ones, malevolent entities corrupting the forest using silence. Fe forces players to carve their own path by omitting any kind of direction or "hand-holding". It's up to the player to create their personal experience. EA executive Jade Raymond highlighted the multiple Star Wars projects both released and in development. Among them are Visceral Games’ third-person action/adventure take bolstered by an original narrative, as well as Respawn’s own third-person game set in a different era of the franchise. While nothing was formally revealed, EA did share a video discussing the current and future of Star Wars games at EA. Battlefield 1’s action-packed gameplay trailer concluded the event. DICE confirmed that large battle vehicles such as airships and armored trains would be in the hands of players. Dynamic, unpredictable weather conditions such as rain and fog aims to dramatically alter the way players approach maps. The series’ signature destruction is more intuitive than ever before, with aerial battles looking especially impressive. EA kept thing short and sweet this year, focusing on concise, quick game announcements with none of the prolonged dull spots (e.g. Pelé last year) that plagued them years prior. Showcasing gameplay for anticipated heavy-hitters like Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 likely scored them a lot of brownie points with shooter enthusiasts. Mass Effect fans still don’t exactly know what Andromeda entails, but they got their best look at the title to date. EA Originals seems like another good option for independent games looking for a home, and Fe appears to be as weirdly intriguing as Unravel was before it. Not getting any formal reveals for Viscreal or Respawn’s Star Wars titles is a bummer as is the lack of any major surprises, but the games shown all look promising and gives EA a bright portfolio of titles on the horizon.

  17. The Walt Disney Company, the owner of all things Star Wars, announced today that they had chosen to contract EA to create new Star Wars video games for the foreseeable future. EA announced this with pride over on their official blog, adding that the future of Star Wars includes tablets, mobile, and other devices as well as the traditional console and PC entries. While I am sure that many gamers out there are curious as to what this means for old Lucas Arts Star Wars games like First Assault and 1313, EA has declined to mention details on any specific titles. However, they stated that they had top studios such as Battlefield developer DICE, Visceral, which created the acclaimed Dead Space franchise, and BioWare, who previously created one of the greatest games of all time with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, working on Star Wars related projects. All games coming out of these studios will be powered by the Frostbite 3 engine. While EA promised that all of the content coming out of these and other EA affiliated studios would be original, I wouldn’t mind if they dipped into the deep and relatively untouched well of past Star Wars series to give them a new life. A DICE developed Star Wars Battlefront or Rogue Squadron would be incredible. If Visceral took up the reins of 1313 or created another Star Wars Republic Commando I would be ecstatic. And if BioWare is working on a single player Knights of the Old Republic III, I would definitely disappear for a week when that releases. Any one of those hypothetical games would win me over to this new deal between Disney and EA, but for now we have to sit tight and wait for more news. What Star Wars titles do you want to see coming out of EA?
