    Battlefield 2042 Short Film 'Exodus' to Premiere on August 12

    A new short film is coming soon.

    DICE and EA were probably thinking: "How do we tell a story without having a single player story campaign?" The answer? Tell the story within the multiplayer component for Battlefield 2042. Oh, also let's make some short films based on the game that also provide some lore. A lot of games do this, including EA's own Apex Legends, so why wouldn't it also work for Battlefield?

    Anyway, there is a new short film coming on August 12...

    Modders Pull Grand Theft Auto Mod 14-years in the Making Over Takedown Fears

    Say goodbye to GTA United.

    Take-Two has been on a rampage lately with takedown notices for multiple Grand Theft Auto mods. The company has issued takedowns on mods that have existed for over a decade for games like Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas.
