Watch the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Announcement Trailer


At the end of February, the world was alerted to the fact that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) and EA would reveal a trailer for their new Star Wars title on this very day. It turns out, this scheduled event happened as planned.

Imagine that.

Earlier today the studios revealed the first details and trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the Star Wars Celebration that has been going on this weekend in Chicago. This is an original game set in the Star Wars universe and looks to take place after Order 66 was issued. This places the game set shortly...
 

New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the major questions fans of...
 

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

    Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode Won't Be Out Until March 2019

    According to the just released Battlefield V roadmap, the battle royale mode for the game won't be released until at least March 2019. Talk about just handing the "W" to Treyarch and Activision with their Blackout mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. By the time March rolls around, Blackout will have had a solid five months to be refined and handle customer feedback.
    Battle Royale comes to Battlefield with Firestorm and the war reaches Greece as the third Tides of War chapter is unleashed in the Spring.

  • Battlefield 1 Premium Pass Will Be Free for One Week Following Battlefield V Open Beta

    We already know that Battlefield V will not have any Premium Pass to bump up the cost of the game. All future content for the game, save for probably cosmetics, will be free so long as you at least own the base game. That's pretty neat.

    However, a game that still does have a Premium Pass is Battlefield 1. If you own the game, then you may want to stay tuned for next week when DICE and EA will make the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass available for free to everyone for a limited time. It works like this: After the open beta for Battlefield V ends on September 11, DICE and EA will make the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 free to everyone for one full we...

    Battlefield V Delayed Until November; Beta Still on Track

    EA and DICE just announced that they have pushed back the release date for Battlefield V until November 20, 2018. This places the release at a period that's about one month after its originally planned October 19 release date.

    General manager of DICE Oskar Gabrielson, made the announcement today with a lengthy explanation as to the reason why.
    We believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands. A game that will deliver on an emotional journey through the return of unseen single player War Stories, a deep multiplayer experience, Battle Royale, along with our new live service, Tides of War - a journey across multiple theaters of WW2

  • Battlefield V's Co-op "Combined Arms" Mode Coming After Launch

    Battlefield V's Co-op "Combined Arms" Mode Coming After Launch

    According to the multiplayer portion of the Battlefield V website, the co-op focused "Combined Arms" mode for the game will be released after the game's launch.

    This mode joins the battle royale mode as being yet another piece of content that won't be ready for Battlefield V's launch on October 19. Hell, for a long time there, it was also rumored that the much discussed Grand Operations mode would also miss the October launch as well, but DICE was quick to squash that piece of misinformation.

    You know, and maybe this is just crazy talk here, it is okay to delay the release of Battlefield V. Maybe give it some more...

  • Reports of "Weak" Battlefield 5 Pre-Orders Attributed to Lack of Informative Sources from Analyst

    Just a week ago, a number of news stories popped up about weak pre-order sales figures for Battlefield V. We were also among the many outlets that put up at least one story about this. Many of us even went so far as to say that EA's decision to sandwich Battlefield V's release between the year's two most anticipated titles were not doing the game any favors. And while it's still probably true that the earlier lack of marketing and the release date aren't really doing Battlefield 5 any favors, it also might not be selling as badly as we thought. On August 14, an analyst at Cowen said that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." What we didn't know at the time, is th...

  • Battlefield V Open Beta Begins September 4; New Ray Tracing Features Announced

    This beta will include the Rotterdam map on Conquest mode and the Arctic Fjord map on Conquest and Grand Operations. DICE and EA showed off some Rotterdam gameplay a few days ago. This is the same footage that they're showing off this week at Gamescom 2018.

    In addition to this beta news, it was revealed today that Battlefield V will make use of Nvidia's RTX tech for real-time ray tracing.

  • New Battlefield 5 Trailer Features Fighting in Europe, a Song About a Brothel, and Battle Royale

    The latest Battlefield V trailer features footage of intense fighting on the Western Front of WWII, while a cover of House of the Rising Sun plays. That is certainly an interesting choice for a song. I'll give them that at least.

    Hey, whatever. It's a new trailer for Battlefield V and it's precisely the sort of thing that was needed.

    This trailer is for Gamescom 2018, which is being held next week. The footage below includes a look at look at some previously unannounced maps, such as the "streets of Rotterdam" and the "burning sands of North Africa."

  • The Ghost of Titanfall 2 Haunts Battlefield 5 as Analyst States "Weak" Pre-order Figures

    Less than a day after EA executive Patrick Soderlund announced his departure from the company, comes word that pre-order sales for Battlefield V are not doing all that well.

    Analysts at Cowen say that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." These thoughts from Cowen come courtesy of Sarah Needleman, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal.

    Cowen feels as though the release date and a lack of marketing are really hurting Battlefield V. They say that "Battlefield could suffer the same fate as EA's 'Titanfall 2'."

    As it stands, Battlefield V's release week is pinned smack dab between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of...

    Invites for the alpha went out earlier today. Apparently, those who signed up for the Battlefield Insider newsletter however long ago had a chance to be invited. There are also some Twitter accounts that are currently giving away some keys for the alpha. Good luck with those.

    I also hear that some streamers and YouTube personalities may have some keys to give out during the course of the alpha.
