With Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 releasing this year, Mass Effect Andromeda has been pushed into early 2017, while new Star Wars Battlefront and Need for Speed games are planned for later in 2017.
The Frostbite Engine-powered game from DICE got an extensive demo, showcasing a ton of on-foot, vehicular and aerial combat, and a fittingly epic ending.
In this episode: Why preorders no longer matter, Sony’s reluctance to drop PS4 price in India, Mortal Kombat X’s micro-transaction hell, the controversy around Steam’s paid mods feature, and lots more.
Battlefront will feature several game modes, ‘from larger 40-person competitive multiplayer to crafted missions that are played solo, with a friend via split-screen offline or co-operatively online.’
The game will be revealed at The Star Wars Celebration in California between 16th and 19th April, with a ‘holiday 2015’ release confirmed.
EA’s E3 2014 press conference was surprising. And no, not in a good way. There was Mass Effect, Mirror’s Edge and Star Wars: Battlefront, but not in a way anyone would have liked.
