  • Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    It's being beat by games that have been out for far longer.

    This week, Microsoft updated their most played games section on their store. These are the most played games in the Xbox ecosystem from 1 to 49. Why 49 and not 50? How am I supposed to know? The important part here is that Anthem has now fallen off of this most played list.

    The last handful of games on the list include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Borderlands 2, Brawlhalla, and Battlefield 1. That's Battlefield 1, not the more recent Battlefield 5 which is actually looking to be the 23rd most played game on the...

    EA Access is Coming to PlayStation

    PlayStation 4 owners will finally get EA Access in July.

    Starting this July, PlayStation 4 owners will get to partake of the EA subscription service that Xbox One and PC owners have had for ages now. EA Access on PlayStation 4 will give subscribers access to a growing number of EA published titles with either a monthly fee or an annual fee.

    This subscription allows players to get 10% off of every game, expansion, or in-game item that they decide to purchase. EA Access also gives subscribers 10 hours to play new EA games. Plus it gives the obvious benefit of being able...

    Anthem's Dwindling Playerbase is Causing Issues with Matchmaking


    Less than a week after BioWare announced an indefinite delay of most of their Anthem roadmap comes word that its dwindling player base is having some issues with proper matchmaking. Given that BioWare hasn't set a new release date for the numerous gameplay additions and improvements, the player base seems to be dying off fast enough that it's causing issues for those that are still playing.

    According to a new report from Forbes, players are finding that they are unable to consistently find full teams for matchmaking activities. In Anthem, players can matchmake for pretty much...

  • Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Named Madden NFL 20 Cover Athlete


    Though the Kansas City Chiefs haven't won a Super Bowl since 1970, that isn't stopping EA from having one of their best stars be the Madden NFL 20 cover athlete. I get the feeling Chiefs fans needed something to cheer about today.

    If it wasn't obvious, Madden NFL 20 was announced this evening. It will be released on August 2, 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Origin. Those who have Origin Access Premier will apparently get to play it early, but I'm not seeing anything that says just how much earlier it is.

    As I alluded to, the cover athlete is none...

    Respawn Delays Future Titanfall Games to Focus on Apex Legends


    A new developer blog went up a short time ago today from Respawn Entertainment. The studio, known best for their work on the Titanfall games and the recently released Apex Legends battle royale title, revealed a bit about what they're going to focus on for the time being.

    Titanfall fans, you're going to want to sit down for this one. One of the big points mentioned in this update is the fact that Respawn has now pushed back their current Titanfall development plans in order to focus on Apex Legends. Yeah, I know. I'm sad about that too.

    BioWare Delays Cataclysm and Other Major Content Planned for Anthem


    Today, the 1.1.0 update for Anthem was released by BioWare. This update includes a few significant improvements to the quality of life for those playing the game. Notably, players can now actually change their gear during missions, strongholds, and during Freeplay without having to return to Fort Tarsis or the Launch Bay.

    Awesome! Seriously, this was desperately needed.

    In addition to this, BioWare added in a new stronghold for players to dive into today. It's called The Sunken Cell and is tailored to those that have completed the main story. On top of this, today's...

    Major Security Hole Patched in Origin Client


    On Monday, a client update for EA's Origin was released that patched up a rather significant security hole in the game client. According to a proof-of-concept investigated by TechCrunch, an attacker with knowledge of the security hole could have run any app they wanted to on the victim's computer.

    This flaw was originally discovered by security researchers Daley Bee and Dominik Penner of Underdog Security. The two found that the flaw allowed them to run any app on a victim's computer at the same level of privileges as the logged-in user. The proof-of-concept that TechCrunch...

    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...

  • Real Money 'Battlefield Currency' Finally Announced for Battlefield V; New Patch Arrives April 4


    Two things were revealed by DICE and EA today for Battlefield V. First is the changelog for the soon to be released Battlefield V update. This is the second update for Chapter 3: Trial by Fire and, as you expect, includes a lot of changes for the Firestorm battle royale mode. Do note that the link I provided here to the update changelog is to a PDF.

    With that out of the way, it's now time to talk about "Battlefield Currency." The community has already started to call them "Boins," so don't be surprised if you see that pop up more than once. This is a new...

    EA Laid Off 350 Employees Today


    This morning, it was reported that Electronic Arts has laid off 350 people from a number of departments. According to Kotaku, the areas that were hardest hit today were marketing and publishing. An internal email from EA's Andrew Wilson, also obtained by Kotaku, says that the decision to "streamline decision-making" in these departments began last year. This move also seems to include a push to improve customer support and close offices in Russia and Japan.



    A statement from EA was issued following the reveal of the layoffs.

  • Anthem 1.0.4 Patch Released - Allows Players to Access Forge Without a Load Screen


    In reading through the 1.0.4 patch notes for Anthem, there was something that caught my eye. No, it wasn't the improvements to the loot drops. No, it wasn't the buffs and changes to various Javelin components. No, it wasn't the multitude of bug fixes and general gameplay improvements. No, it wasn't the addition of Nvidia Highlights support, nor the addition of multiple FOV sliders for the PC, nor the addition of DLSS support for RTX cards.

    Nope, it was the fact that BioWare patched out a load screen. Specifically, they patched out a load screen when accessing the Forge when...

  • Battlefield V 2019 Roadmap Reveals New Map Releases and New Theater of War

    DICE has finally provided the roadmap for Battlefield V through Fall 2019. Included in this roadmap are mentions of new maps, which look to begin in May, and a new theater of war. Given the name of the new theater, Awakening the Giant, slated for Fall 2019, is the upcoming theater of war.

    Given the title of that new theater, I think it's safe to say that they're referencing the United States. This is based off of the famous quote from Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto in reference to the United States following the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan.

    Apex Legends Season 1 'Wild Frontier' Update is Out Now


    The first major season for Apex Legends is now available. Respawn is calling this season "Wild Frontier" and with it comes a bunch of "seasonal swag" for players to earn. It also comes alongside the release of the Wild Frontier Battle Pass.

    The Battle Pass comes in two flavors. The first, priced at 950 Apex Coins, grants you access to the Pass. Play to level the Pass up to get more rewards. You can also spend 2,800 Apex Coins to get the Battle Pass Bundle that includes the Pass and a shortcut that unlocks the first 25 levels instantly.

  • Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


    The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

    I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

    Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...

    BioWare Releases Anthem 1.0.3 Patch in Rare Saturday Update


    The 1.0.3 patch for Anthem just dropped earlier today for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 players. While it isn't unnecessarily unusual to see another patch released for a game that has had a few issues, it is unusual to see a patch released on a weekend. Yet here we are on a Saturday talking about the latest patch for the game. That's fine, I didn't want a day off either.

    Notable changes in this patch include a huge number of fixes and improvements to the game. These include fixes for crashes, fixes for Titans that spawned too frequently, and more. BioWare has also provided...
