Star Wars Battlefront – “Blast” Team Deathmatch Mode Revealed

Star-Wars-Battlefront-_4-17_C-1024x576

Star Wars Battlefront will feature a 10v10 online team deathmatch mode called “Blast”. Rebel forces will battle Imperial factions in this 20 player game mode. The side who gets 100 kills first or has the most at the end of 10 minutes wins.

“One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust,” said lead level designer Dennis Brännvall. “In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth.

“My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.”

“As in other Star Wars Battlefront game modes, the key to success is choosing a hand with a weapon layout that suits you and the battle conditions,” said Brännvall. “Also, you’ll find weapon pickups strewn across the map, and since there are no vehicles or Heroes & Villains joining the fight, the strategic value of these pickups is quite high.

“Whether you pick up a Droid scanning for nearby enemies or a turret that’ll control a zone for you, the pickups can really turn the tide of a Blast match. They are not around every corner though, so keep your eyes peeled.”

EA is cutting off Dragon Age Inquisition owners on PS3 and Xbox 360. The firm has announced that all future DLC will only be made available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. However, last-gen owners will be able to download a save importer tool that will allow them to transfer over their Dragon Age Inquisition save files to current-gen platforms.

Did you begin your Dragon Age: Inquisition adventure on a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 console and want to upgrade to a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One? We’ve got great news! With our brand new Save Importer feature, you can migrate your old saves, and continue your adventure without starting over from scratch.

All future Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One only, so we designed our Save Importer feature to help make the transition to a new console as easy as possible.

If you’re a fan of third-party titles and don’t have a PS4, Xbox One or decent PC…. I think its about time to upgrade. Companies like Ubisoft, Square Enix and EA are leaving the Xbox 360 and PS3 behind!

EA Makes Bank: Net Revenue at $4.319 Billion for FY, $896 Million Net Revenue for Q3

BattlefieldHardlineBanner

Say what you want about EA (and trust me I do), but one thing that can’t be denied is consumers like their games. And it’s obvious by how much money EA makes. Net revenue for this quarter alone was at $896 million. For the fiscal year, net revenue is at $4.319 billion, with $2.230 billion coming from digital sales. EA was the number one publisher worldwide on PS4 and Xbox One. Battlefield Hardline and Dragon Age Inquisition helped EA drive sales for the past 5 months. With more Madden and Star Wars Battlefront launching this fall, I don’t think the EA money train is slowing down anytime soon. Source: Hardcore Gamer

EA Expects Star Wars Battlefront to sell Around 10 Million Copies

Star Wars Battlefront Logo

Electronic Arts has high goals for Star Wars Battlefront this fall. The major publisher has forecasted Battlefront to sell around 9 to 10 million units. What is not know if that number is a lifetime sales goal, or fiscal year sales goal. I’m guessing it’s for the fiscal year ending in March 2016, but we’ll have to wait for confirmation on that one. With Star Wars marketing and hype at an all-time high due to the movie coming out next year, I think it will reach that number quite easily. What do you guys think? Via: NeoGAF
