Visceral Games Logo

It’s been four years now since Disney decided to close down longtime Star Wars gamemaker LucasArts and instead sign an exclusive licensing deal with video game factory Electronic Arts. At first things showed some promise, with multiple titles expected including first-person shooter Battlefront, a third-person game from Dead Space developer Visceral Games, and more.

But in the four years since it’s all been a bit of a nightmare scenario for fans. And it keeps getting worse, as EA has announced that they’ve decided to shut down Visceral Games. Though there is some good news: the Star Wars game they’ve been working on is not being killed off with the developer. Not yet, at least. Read the full announcement below.

BioWare's Anthem Gameplay

Yesterday we saw a teaser for Anthem, the new game from Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare. We were promised at the time that a full reveal for the game would be coming during Microsoft’s E3 2017 presentation, and that was indeed the case.

Closing out the showcase, a nearly seven-minute gameplay demo for Anthem was shown. The game basically looks like an amalgamation of games like Titanfall, Destiny, and Dark Void, with a bit of James Cameron’s Avatar universe thrown into the mix for good measure.

Read more about the game and watch the gameplay reveal below.

E3 2017: Trailers For ‘A Way Out’ From Makers Of ‘Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons’

A Way Out Game

One of the smaller games unveiled during the EA Play event today was a co-op game titled A Way Out.

The game will instantly be exciting to some, as it comes from the same folks who made the incredible indie title Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons—a game which any and everyone who have never played it should seek out immediately. But this game is far different from Brothers. Instead of playing as siblings in a fantastical world, you play as two men who join up to break out of prison.

Star Wars Battlefront II Trailer

During the ongoing Star Wars Celebration convention today, the first trailer for developer DICE and publisher Electronic Arts’ first-person shooter sequel Star Wars Battlefront II was unveiled.

The first game looked and felt about as Star Wars as any fan could have hoped, a remarkable technical accomplishment. But the game as a whole, especially considering they didn’t even bother making a single-player campaign, was a bit hollow. The follow-up however, has already been confirmed to include a single-player campaign. So we can only hope that it will be much closer to DICE’s Battlefield 1, only set in a galaxy far, far away.

Continue below to check out the first trailer for Battlefront II.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 To Have Single-Player Campaign

We’ve known since it was announced that Disney had signed an exclusive deal with video game giant Electronic Arts—not too long after acquiring Lucasfilm—that multiple new Star Wars games were on the way.

Multiple games are still on the way, but in the almost four years since that deal was announced only the new Battlefront has been released. While await more on those other games, it’s been revealed—believe it or not—that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will in fact have a sing-player campaign.

Wait, What? $130 ‘Battlefield 1’ Collector’s Edition Doesn’t Include Game

Battlefield 1

You might think that you’ve seen it all with video games. Especially in the last handful of years with unpopular trends popping up left and right. Then this slaps your eyes.

Collector’s editions of video games are a great way for people who are fully sold on an upcoming release to acquire some added goodies for a little bit more coin. Usually these come with collectible replicas of items found in the game, statues, and various other things. Oh yeah, and the game itself! Obviously. But a new Amazon exclusive Battlefield 1 collector’s edition is changing this up a bit. It’ll cost you $130 ($104 if you’re a Prime member), and does come with the aforementioned collectible goodies. What it does not come with, however, is the freakin’ game.

Battlefield 1

To close out their EA Play event, Electronic Arts showed off the latest in one of their biggest franchises, titled Battlefield 1.

While the Call of Duty franchise keeps going into the future—something that has not been all that popular with players—developer DICE is taking the Battlefield franchise way, way back with the game set in World War I. A gameplay trailer for the new game was shown.

You can see the new game in action in the trailer below.

Star Wars EA

Instead of focusing on one specific Star Wars game such as Star Wars Battlefront, EA took the opportunity to preview all of the games they’re working on for the franchise, which is many from a bunch of different developers including Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, who’s working on a third-person title, BioWare, DICE, and more.

As far as actually showing the games, there’s not a whole lot of that. It’s more of a behind the scenes video talking with many of the people who are working on these highly anticipated Star Wars games. But there is one particular game that is briefly shown that will excite eager fans. That would be the game being worked on by Dead Space developer Visceral Games, led by former top Naughty Dog talent Amy Hennig—who was a writer and creative director on their Uncharted series and joined Visceral back in April of 2014—with the help of Lucasfilm VP and Executive Creative Director Doug Chiang.

It’s not much at all, and it is early footage, but you can see that brief first gameplay peek and more on the various Star Wars games being worked on in the video below.
