    EA Adds More Battlefield 4 Servers Due to Increased Demand

    Party like it's 2013 all over again.

    Battlefield 4 released back in October of 2013. Though it's been almost eight years since release, the game is about as popular as ever and it's all thanks to the recent Battlefield 2042 announcement.

    This surge in popularity has seen a huge number of additional players trying to play the game once more. This increase in the number of players joining had caused an increase in the server queue times, especially in US West. Thankfully,...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
