Who would have thought that the single player campaign of a Battlefield game would actually be a stand-out feature? Given the abject mediocrity we were dealt in previous iterations, the fact that Battlefield 1 offers an engaging campaign mode alongside the popular multiplayer component is a triumph of the highest order. The key ingredient is the sense of scale DICE have provided to the World War 1 setting. From the narrative, to the setting and the level design, there’s an overwhelming sense that you and your struggles are just another thread in an intricate tapestry. For too long, modern military … Read More »

It’s always neat when developers include Easter eggs in their games – and it seems DICE have done precisely that with Battlefield 1. It all started when a Youtuber, jackfrags, discovered a pair of headphones on the multiplayer maps. Once players have the headphones, they’ll need to track down mcom stations to hear a message that plays out in Morse code. Now gamers are relentlessly pursuing these Easter eggs, to discover the meaning behind the Morse code messages – there’s a dedicated thread over on Reddit detailing their discoveries. But it seems that even now, the real meaning behind the … Read More »

Eagle-eyed gamers have spotted the sequel to EA’s Star Wars Battlefront on Amazon.co.uk. Despite mixed reviews to the original (sound design, graphics, atmosphere = good; all-too-easy accessibility, no story mode, lack of game modes and maps = bad), it was inevitable that we’d be seeing the release of Star Wars Battlefront II. Our real hope is that developer DICE have learnt lessons from issues raised with the previous game. As you’d expect from a game that’s barely been officially announced – with just a brief flash of the game’s logo at this year’s E3 aiming for a Holiday 2017 release … Read More »

Battlefield 1 drops in less than three weeks, and to celebrate the imminent release, gamers have been given a sneak peek of the new single-player campaign. You can check it out right here: There were fears that Battlefield 1 was stepping into a literal minefield with its decision to set the latest game during the First World War. With that in mind, EA and DICE have been keen to highlight the harsh realities of WWI in a series not known for underplaying the glories of war. Solo mode takes an almost COD-meets-GTA approach, allowing you to play as a variety … Read More »

With the release of Battlefield 1 on October 21st, we will see not only a massive change in setting and structure from previous Battlefield titles but a refreshing change of pace for shooters in general. But what has made DICE make such a drastic change and what can we learn about the new game from the campaign trailer that dropped yesterday. We learned from DICE announcements that the single player campaign will not follow the standard formula of a single protagonist. But will instead follow the stories of different protagonists throughout different battles and scenarios of World War 1. Making … Read More »

There is nothing quite as horrific as war and nothing quite as glorious as a good game of Battlefield 4. As war simulators go Battlefield 4 is one of the best, both in its attention to detail and also in its immersion levels. Battlefield 4 was a launch title for the Xbox One so therefore has been around for several years now. This in no way as dented its popularity any. Fans of the franchise new and old can now, for this week only, download all of the DLC for free. That’s three DLC packs containing a handful of new … Read More »
