  • DICE Cancels Competitive Mode for Battlefield V

    DICE Cancels Competitive Mode for Battlefield V

    A 5v5 competitive game mode never quite got off the ground.

    DICE has officially cancelled its previously announced 5v5 competitive mode for Battlefield V. The company says that they made this decision after turning their attention more to "improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want." Despite neither of these two things happening in quite some time, the decision has been made and those looking for a small-scale war are left looking elsewhere.

    The team made this announcement today in the latest "Letters from the Fron...

    Apex Legends Devs Call Some Toxic Players 'Ass-hats' and 'Freeloaders'

    (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

    The Apex Legends subreddit has seen better days. Recently, developers Respawn Entertainment had to make some changes to how their Iron Crown Event cosmetic skins were sold after fans complained that it was absurd they were tied to RNG loot boxes. The team at Respawn announced some upcoming changes that will allow those that wanted the skins to buy them directly for $18 (USD).

    The Reddit thread announcing the changes also included an attempt at apologizing to the community. To say that it didn't go over too well may be a bit of an understatement.

    Respawn Updates Iron Crown Event Cosmetic Prices after Criticism

    Changes coming soon to event skins and pricing.

    Respawn Entertainment have announced plans to change how they are offering skins and other content for their currently ongoing Iron Crown Collection Event. Players weren't too thrilled about the price that Respawn was asking for the event specific RNG based loot boxes surprise mechanic boxes. The boxes, called Iron Crown Collection Packs, gave you a chance to get one of 24 different themed items.

    The boxes cost a fair bit when purchased using real money. Some would say it cost way, way too much for what were essentially...

    Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo will Start Disclosing Loot Box Odds

    This joint effort announced today by the ESA.

    The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), yes that one, announced today that Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo will now have required policies that ensure the odds of loot boxes are known on their platforms. These odds will be shown on any and all paid loot boxes in games that are developed for their platform.

    This comes straight from the ESA's chief counsel for tech policy during a workshop on loot boxes held by the Federal Trade Commission. ...

    A Cataclysm Hits Anthem, But Nobody Knew

    The end came not with a bang, but a whimper.

    Yesterday, BioWare and EA released the long-awaited Cataclysm update for Anthem. This had promised to be a major event in the Anthem timeline but it was met with some rather unfortunate setbacks when BioWare decided to push back nearly the entirety of their planned update release schedule for the game. The first major delay came back in April when several major features, including Cataclysm, were delayed until an undetermined time.

    It looks as though that time is now, at least as far as the Cataclysm event is concerned. Yesterday,...

On the PC it will weigh in at about 800MB and on the Xbox One it will be roughly 50MB. Those on the PlayStation 4 will apparently just have to roll the dice on how big their update will be.

    Madden NFL 20 Championship Series Announced

    John Madden.

    EA and the NFL announced the start of the EA Sports Madden NFL 20 Championship Series (MCS). All four Madden NFL Major tournaments will be held during key NFL moments during the season.

    These key moments include the NFL Kickoff, the NFL playoffs push, the Super Bowl, and the NFL Draft. And for those that like sponsors, you may be thrilled(?) to learn that the NFL partners of Pizza Hut and Snickers will also serve as sponsors for the MCS. Apparently these will "heighten the connection to the League."

    The official kickoff to the Madden...

  • The Shortlist that is the Battlefield V Update 4.2 Patch Notes

    The Shortlist that is the Battlefield V Update 4.2 Patch Notes

    Ouch.

    DICE finally revealed the patch notes for Update 4.2, which is slated to hit Battlefield V tomorrow (Thursday, July 25) starting at 1AM (PT) with the PC update. PS4 and XB1 updates will follow at 2AM and 3AM respectively. On the plus side, they say that they have fixes that target "extreme instances of invisible soldiers." On the other hand, the total number of changes can be counted on just two hands.

    For a fairly major update, this seems to be rather lacking. Battlefield Community Manager Adam "PartWelsh" Freeman did provide some additional...

    DICE Pushes Back Battlefield V Marita Map to Next Week

    Two updates coming over the next week.

    DICE again took to Reddit to explain just what is going on with Battlefield V. Well, they didn't get into too many details, but they did share some bits of information that we should probably know about.

    First up, DICE is planning to release the 4.2 update this Thursday. This update will be for both clients and servers. However, no actual changelog has been shared yet. Maybe it'll include the fix for the invisible soldiers that has plagued the game for the past month now. Maybe it will add in enhanced anti-cheat support to combat...

    Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    No solid ETA on when they will be either.

    If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

    The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...

  • EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

    If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

    EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    In fact,...

  • Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    This mode places a larger emphasis on teamwork and building, not murder.

    DICE released the latest weekly game mode for Battlefield V earlier today. It's called Outpost and it will be live from today through to next week. It is a 64-player game type playable on Arras and Mercury. The basic idea behind this mode isn't necessarily about killing, but rather on building up, upgrading, destroying, and controlling radio towers.

    Teams will win when they beat the enemy to reaching a set number of points. Points in Outpost are called "recruits." You get more of these...
