At E3 2017’s EA Play on June 10, not only was the simply amazing looking gameplay trailer released for Battlefront II, but it was revealed all post-launch DLC would be FREE while earlier in the week we learned of an incoming beta.

Updated with news on a singleplayer mission! Continue reading “Star Wars Battlefront II: Gameplay Trailer, Beta Details, Free DLC and More at EA PLAY 2017 (UPDATED)”

Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission Teaser, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Demo Impressions

Sunday’s EA Play Press Conference for E3 2016 didn’t have much to show on the Star Wars gaming front, but Monday night’s Sony PlayStation Conference pulled back a tiny corner of the veil. The above video is the extent of footage released for Criterion’s Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, which takes you to space (a first in the revamped series) for a VR dogfight against TIEs. In a post over at the PlayStation Blog, it’s revealed to be free (granted you have a PS4 and PS VR). Also during the conference, PlayStation fans were treated with the news they had exclusive (for the night) rights to the first demo of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which I tried out and have my impressions below, including screenshots and clips.

The above video was released at EA Play’s E3 2016 Press Conference, showing off very brief glimpses into the upcoming future of Star Wars video games from Visceral Games, Respawn Entertainment, Motive, Capital Games, DICE, and Bioware.

E3 2015 Star Wars News: Battlefront Gameplay Footage, SWTOR Expansion, Disney Infinity 3.0 Sets, and Mobile Games

While it feels just as staged as the demo us Star Wars Celebration Anaheim attendees saw behind-closed-doors, there’s no denying how beautiful Star Wars Battlefront looks, as seen in the above gameplay trailer. But that wasn’t all for Star Wars gaming news, as The Old Republic MMO had a new expansion announced, some more details on the Disney Infinity 3.0 playsets (like where you can get a Boba Fett figure first), and unfortunately another dang mobile card collecting game. The only disappointment was the lack of any news (not even a title!) for Visceral Games’ project. Head below for more video and details.

E3 2014: Stand Out Moments

E32014

Each year, from the big wigs of companies and developers, to the indies, press, and the fans, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is meant to show everyone what the video game industry is up to these days. While there are discussions about its overall relevance to the industry, as some of the biggest reveals tend to happen at other conventions or just whenever people please, it still draws out the 10 year old in me (and I know it does for others too). While this year’s E3 wasn’t as thrilling as some of the ones in the past, I’d like to share a few things that still caught my attention and maybe you should check out as well.
