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.

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,...

    PlayStation 4 To Launch with Optional Real Name IDs

    More and more, the social network dominated world that you live in makes use of real names instead of online personas (what a crazy idea), so why should PlayStation 4 IDs be an exception?

    That's right, when the PlayStation 4 launches next month, gamers will have the OPTION of using their real names for their ID instead of a simple online nickname. Sony has even said previously that you can use both your real name and an online persona name if you so desire and you will not be restricted on who you play with based off of which name you choose to use. Of course, people are already up in arms over t...

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts Rumored to Run at 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PlayStation 4

    Man alive, the rumors are flying high tonight with respect to what resolution Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at on the next-gen consoles. Various sources over at NeoGAF, a few very accurate ones at that (based on their past reveals), say that CoD: Ghosts runs at just 720p and 60fps on the Xbox One.

    This is in contrast to the word that the PS4 version of the game will run it at 1080p resolution. The NeoGAF thread is already full of pages upon pages of people debating the validity of these separate claims that have all said the same thing.

    It seems as though Titanfall may also rock out on the Xbox One with...
