BioWare To Shut Down Forums For Its 'Legacy' Games

All good things must come to and end. On August 26, the forums for BioWare’s Mass Effect, Dragon Age and a number of other titles, will be closed to the public, the developer announced yesterday.

It's Not A Campaign, But At Least Battlefront Has Bots Now

The Star Wars Battlefront reboot might not have the proper singleplayer campaign everyone wants. And it definitely doesn’t have the superb Galactic Conquest mode. But as of this week, it does have one thing that makes it better: bots.

Here's Some Battlefield 1 Benchmarks To Ponder

The Frostbite engine has a pretty good track record of being well optimised, and that was something PC users saw with the release of Star Wars Battlefront last year.

But how is Battlefield 1 holding up so far? The closed alpha wasn’t made available to Australians, but now we have a rough idea of how it will perform.

Death Star Expansion And Offline Bot Play Coming To Star Wars Battlefront

Star Wars Battlefront may have had an insufficient number of Death Stars on release (that number being zero), but EA and DICE are looking to make up for it with the game’s third expansion, informatively named Death Star.

Battlefield 1's Closed Alpha Won't Be Available To Australians

Let’s get something out of the way: Australians will, at some point, get access to a beta version of the upcoming Battlefield 1.

Criterion's Extreme Sports Game Is No More

At EA’s press conference at E3 two years ago, there was a curious video involving Criterion and a whole mishmash of vehicles and activities. It looked like it might be a extreme sports spin on Burnout Paradise, something that might finally satiate fans waiting for years for the studio to follow up on their classic arcade racer.

But that project has since been canned.

EA Could Have Published Rocket League

EA has made a note of promoting smaller indie games during their press conferences at E3, putting games like Unravel and Fe on the same stage as its major franchises.

But some developers are sceptical about how much of an effort EA wants to make in the indie space, as one Psyonix member cheekily pointed out this morning.

The PS4 Will Have A X-Wing VR Experience

EA and their racing game studio Criterion are making a Star Wars virtual reality mission that has you flying an X-Wing in VR. That will sure help get people into VR.

Podcast: E3 Day Zero

The theatres are empty; the subwoofers have all gone still. How did EA and Bethesda do? Time to discuss, on a special E3 bonus episode of Kotaku Splitscreen.
