DICE Shares What They Learned from the Battlefield 2042 Beta

Specialists are still here to stay though.

DICE has a new and rather lengthy write-up about what they learned from the recent Battlefield 2042 beta that took place. First and foremost, the Specialists are here to stay. You may want to get used to them now because the "traditional" classes as you have come to know them from previous titles are no more.

DICE says that they "see Specialists as the next evolution of the classic Battlefield class system that will...
 

Call of Duty's New Anti-cheat has Apparently Leaked Online Just One Day After Being Announced

It's already being reverse engineered by cheat makers.

Over the span of just three days, we had Activision issuing a threat against cheaters, the reveal of Ricochet, the new kernel-level anti-cheat coming to Call of Duty, and now today that anti-cheat has apparently already been leaked. Not only that, but Ricochet is apparently already being reverse engineered by "pay to cheat" (P2C) developers.

Ricochet as it is known was announced just yesterday for Call of...
 

Activision Blizzard Lawsuits Hit a Major Snag

There may be a conflict of interests that are muddying the waters.

Stick with me on this, because this is probably going to be a little confusing. At the end of September 2021, Activision Blizzard settled a lawsuit brought on by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for the lowly amount of $18 million (USD). This lawsuit would be used to "compensate and make amends" for employees impacted by the rampant sexual discrimination and harassment that has been...

It's coming.

DICE and EA finally lifted the lid on information concerning the upcoming open beta for Battlefield 2042. It has been a long time coming and it's great to finally get some news about this. I know the fanbase has been getting a little, let's just say antsy, with each day that passed by where we did not hear anything.

In the latest Battlefield Briefing, the team announced that the Beta for Battlefield 2042 will run from October 6 through October 9. Specifically,...

    He will be replaced by a generic placeholder.

    EA announced that they will be removing the former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden from Madden NFL 22. This is being done following Gruden's resignation after it was recently revealed by the New York Times that he made several racist, homophobic, and misogynistic remarks across multiple emails over the past 12 years.

    News about Gruden's removal from Madden was made through the game's official Twitter account yesterday....

    PGA Tour 2K21 'Baller Edition' Announced

    Get it? Because of golf balls.

    2K just announced the Baller Edition of PGA Tour 2K21 today that includes various bonus content and is "dripping with swag." Because when I think of golf and golfers, I immediately think of "swag." I say this as someone who used to golf regularly.

    Stop me if you've heard this one before.

    DICE and EA showed off the Hazard Zone gameplay mode today for Battlefield 2042. This mode, which will be included with the purchase of the base game, sounds familiar. Like, it sounds really familiar.

    The mode will have you inserting into a point on one of the base Battlefield 2042 maps as a squad of four. Once on the ground, you must locate and retrieve Data Drives that are scattered around the map. All the while you will be fighting...

    FIFA Wants to Charge EA $1 Billion Every Four Years for License

    This might give us a reason why EA is considering changing the name.

    Recently, EA revealed that they have been considering ditching the "FIFA" name from its annual soccer video game franchise. There were some definite questions raised as to why EA would even consider doing such a thing since FIFA is a hugely recognizable name.

    Today, some light has been shed that could provide a good reason why EA was considering this move. According to a new report from the...

    Call of Duty's New Anti-Cheat, Ricochet, to Use Kernel-Level Driver

    This is about as invasive an anti-cheat as you can get.

    On October 12, the Call of Duty devs issued a vague, ominous, and really cringey warning to cheaters. As it stands, the new anti-cheat for Call of Duty: Warzone wasn't slated to be released until Call of Duty: Vanguard released later this year. So, what then were they teasing to be revealed today?

    Well, it was the reveal announcement for their new anti-cheat. They call it Ricochet, which is not to be confused with...
