Obsidian Says There Will Be No Microtransactions In Its Next RPG
Dec 16, 2017 - 1:22 PM - by Emabulator

Obsidian Entertainment has announced that there will be "no microtransactions, of any kind," in their upcoming RPG.

We’re extremely excited about our upcoming RPG, and we know you are too. We wish we could tell you all about it right now… but we’re going to hold off until the time is right. What we did want to talk about was a question a lot of you have been raising: “Will this upcoming game feature any lootboxes or other microtransactions?”

The answer is simply: “no.” No microtransactions, of any kind, in our game.

We also wanted to say a word about our partnership with Private Division, our publisher on this title. Far from “pushing” us to put anything -- microtransactions or otherwise -- into our game, Private Division has been incredibly supportive of our vision, our creative freedom, and the process by which we work to make RPGs. They have been fantastic partners, and we are extremely excited to work with them through release, to put what we know is going to be an amazing game into as many hands as possible.

As always, thank you so much for your support. We know we couldn’t do what we do without our fans, and we want you to know that we put you guys first in every decision we make.

Speedcross Update Coming to Need for Speed Payback on December 19th
Dec 16, 2017 - 12:03 PM - by Emabulator

EA and Ghost Games have announced that their Need for Speed Payback Speedcross Update is coming on December 19th.

Need for Speed Payback's first big content update races into the game on Dec 19. The Speedcross update will feature new abandoned cars, a Speedcross competition event, a new section to Speedlists called Drift Run, and community-anticipated Steering Wheel Support.

While driving around Fortune Valley over the past month and a half, you may have noticed cars in Street Leagues that haven't been available to own yet. Each week following the Dec. 19 update, starting with the Mazda RX-7 Spirit R, a new car will become available at random locations in the Need for Speed Payback world. Find the car, escape the cops, and you'll get to keep the car after purchasing from a dealership. Other vehicles to look forward to in the weeks to come are the Volvo 242DL, Volvo Amazon P130, Plymouth Barracuda, Nissan Skyline 2000 GTR and the BMW M3 Evolution II E30.

In the Speedcross event, take control of Mac and go up against drivers from all over the world to work towards your ultimate goal of beating the reigning world champion, The Barracuda. Go big and focus on scoring as many points as possible in Drift Zones, Jumps, Speedtraps, and Smackables. With 16 new events across four zones, there's plenty of road to conquer in your ultimate vehicle.

The Speedcross content update also includes a new section to Speedlists, Drift Runs. Fifteen different drift runs will be taking place on the streets, off-road, and in both day and night settings.

And finally, the long-awaited Steering Wheel support will be coming to all platforms on Logitech 01-05 wheels.

Report: No, 2018's Battlefield game isn't Bad Company 3
Dec 15, 2017 - 1:34 PM - by Emabulator

Eurogamer has the story.

Earlier this week, a YouTube video sparked reports that Battlefield Bad Company 3 would launch in 2018.

Details of the purported project were uploaded by YouTuber AlmightyDaq - who previously laid out a host of leaked details on Battlefield 1. Off the back of that track record, AlmightyDaq's video was picked up by numerous other sites and forums.

The video had plenty of details in it - a "mid and post-Vietnam conflict" setting, game modes including Conquest, Rush, Operations, Domination and Team Deathmatch, "tighter" maps and era-appropriate guns.

Familiar character classes such as the Engineer, Support, Assault and Recon would return, the video claimed, alongside helicopters, LAVs, modern tanks and more.

There was even word on how the game wouldn't have the same microtransactions which plagued DICE's latest release Star Wars Battlefront 2 - because of the huge controversy that kicked up.

I looked into the report on Monday and heard differently, however. Sources close to the studio told me an idea for Battlefield Bad Company 3 had existed, but was not in development.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Reveals Free Predator DLC
Dec 14, 2017 - 8:28 AM - by Evil Avatar

Ghost Recon Wildlands – Legendary Movie Monster, The Predator, Coming in Free DLC

A deadly new threat enters Ghost Recon Wildlands this week, armed with powerful weapons, advanced stealth abilities, and more mandibles than seem strictly necessary. From December 14 through early January, the Predator will bring its unique skills to a special challenge that sees players (solo or with up to four players in co-op) hunting the creature—and being hunted in return. Defeating the Predator will be no easy task, but if players manage to take it down, they will be rewarded with exclusive items, including the Predator mask, which features Predator vision. To help you fully embrace your inner hunter, the Predator Pack (available in the in-game store) introduces 15 new customization items inspired by the original movie, including weapons and a new close combat move.

Ghost War, the free PVP mode for Ghost Recon Wildlands, will also get a Predator-inspired addition: A new class of soldier inspired by Dutch, the protagonist from the original movie, who can engage a battle rage mode to tip the scales in his favor.

“At Ubisoft Paris, we have been fans of the Predator for a long time and are thrilled to bring such an iconic character to our game” said Nouredine Abboud, senior producer at Ubisoft. “The challenge is full of references to the original Predator movie, and we cannot wait to see the reaction of our players!”

We got to chat with Abboud to learn more about where the idea to bring the Predator into Wildlands came from, and how they designed the hunt to capture the deadly tension of the movie.

Disney Acquires Fox for $52.4 Billion
Dec 14, 2017 - 6:50 AM - by Chimpbot

After weeks of rumors, a deal has finally been struck; Disney is acquiring Fox's entertainment assets.

The Walt Disney Company and Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (21st Century Fox) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement for Disney to acquire 21st Century Fox, including the Twentieth Century Fox Film and Television studios, along with cable and international TV businesses, for approximately $52.4 billion in stock (subject to adjustment). Building on Disney’s commitment to deliver the highest quality branded entertainment, the acquisition of these complementary assets would allow Disney to create more appealing content, build more direct relationships with consumers around the world and deliver a more compelling entertainment experience to consumers wherever and however they choose. Immediately prior to the acquisition, 21st Century Fox will separate the Fox Broadcasting network and stations, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, FS1, FS2 and Big Ten Network into a newly listed company that will be spun off to its shareholders.
Aside from the obvious assets such as X-Men, Alien and The Simpsons, Disney will also be gaining Fox's stake in Hulu. They'll also finally own the rights to the original Star Wars movie, something that was not included in the Lucasfilm sale five years ago. Frankly, the list of what it won't gain is easier to deal with: the Fox News cable channel, broadcast networks and Fox Sports, which are expected to spin off as their own business.

It is unclear whether or not regulators will allow the deal to go through and will likely go under intense scrutiny.

Disney has its hands in many sinister soups.

Action RPG Titan Quest Coming to PS4, Xbox One and Switch
Dec 13, 2017 - 7:19 AM - by Emabulator

Eurogamer has the story.

Old Diablo-alike Titan Quest is getting a console re-release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch! This was a game first released in 2006.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Titan Quest will arrive on 20th March 2018, priced at a budget £27/€30/$30, with the Switch version to follow "when it is done".

Included will be the full Titan Quest game plus Immortal Throne expansion, but not the game's new Ragnarok expansion, released last month. There will be online co-op for up to six people, and "remastered graphics" to bring the game up to date.

For some reason there will also be a £105/€120/£120 Collector's Edition, which includes a nine-inch replica of a Greek war helmet.

Nintendo Wants To Ramp Up Its Mobile Game Development
Dec 13, 2017 - 6:50 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Nintendo wants to do more in the mobile game space, apparently. Nintendo already owns a 10 percent stake in DeNA and is working with them on five mobile games, the most recent of which was Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. But The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nintendo wants to work with more mobile game developers to release more games after the company failed to get involved in the mobile game space early on.

According to the report, Nintendo believes it can release more games, faster, by aligning with more partners. However, the report added that Nintendo doesn't plan to actually invest in any of these companies, as it did with DeNA.

The report claims that Nintendo spoke with Puzzle & Dragons developer GungHo about a potential partnership, though a spokesperson claimed no discussions ever happened with Nintendo. The two companies already worked together, as some Mario characters showed up in the Puzzle & Dragons game for 3DS. There is no word on what other companies Nintendo might have spoken with or will speak with about making mobile games.

PUBG Performs Badly on Xbox One and Xbox One X
Dec 12, 2017 - 4:10 PM - by Emabulator

The Digital Foundry at Eurogamer has the not surprising news, to anyone familiar with the PC version.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is - without question - the biggest game in the world right now, so Microsoft's current console exclusivity for the title is obviously a big deal. Equally without question is that the PC game is notorious for its work-in-progress visuals and wobbly performance. With that in mind, some might say that it's somewhat miraculous that any playable version of PUBG is possible on a console right now. From another perspective though, what's clear is that the current build of the game is a long way short of the standards expected from a polished console release.

PUBG on Xbox One starts up promisingly enough with a decent, attractive front-end, but once you've moved on from character creation to your first in-game lobby, you're instantly besieged by low resolution textures that seem to be failing to stream in properly, combined with performance just above or below the 20fps threshold - depending on whether you're playing on Xbox One or its significantly more powerful 4K counterpart.

Moving onto deployment into the game's single map (the PC's second map is en route), performance continues to be a struggle, kicking off with a prolonged stutter before moving on to 15-20fps territory as the transport plane flies above the map. In terms of first impressions, PUBG is borderline horrendous - an assault of low quality artwork, jarring pop-in and disappointing performance. Input lag also feels off - whether that's down to deadzone issues on the analogue sticks or the variable frame-rate remains to be seen (it's something we're looking into) and in this respect at least, it's the same story whether you're gaming on a standard Xbox or the X.

Bad Company 3 is Next Battlefield Game, Says YouTuber Who Leaked Battlefield 1
Dec 12, 2017 - 3:50 PM - by Emabulator

PCGamesN has the story.

If you took a poll of every Battlefield fan and asked them what they wanted, Bad Company 3 would rank pretty high, right next to ‘don’t bring that Battlefront 2 loot box stuff over here.’ According to a supposed leak, from the same YouTuber who predicted Battlefield 1 a few months before its unveiling, that’s exactly what’s going on with Battlefield 2018.

TheAlmightyDaq posted his findings, which he claims come from an inside source at DICE, over on the official subreddit. While most videos like this would be ignored, Daq has some credit for his 10 minute Battlefield 1 video from March 2016, in which he accurately predicted many details of that game long before it was publicly revealed.

As for the actual content of the game, Daq gets quite detailed. It will focus on the Vietnam era, spreading into later Cold War arcs. There will be a full campaign, natch, that will not stick rigidly to historical accuracy - much like Battlefield 1 didn't. Tighter maps and the return of Rush - Bad Company's most popular game mode - are also mentioned, along with Battlefield standards like Team Deathmatch and Conquest.

Everything else will sound fairly normal for Battlefield - four classes, modern weapons and armour, helicopters, the works. Microtransactions are apparently not being considered in a major way beyond the Battlepack system. While he makes no mention of it, it would be surprising to see a Battlefield game drop the season pass structure.

AMD Launches Much-Needed Software Revamp, Offers More Control Of Video Cards
Dec 12, 2017 - 2:55 PM - by Emabulator

Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition. GameSpot has the story.

AMD has released what's called Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition, which is a revamped package of all the software technologies built for PC gamers that use AMD graphics cards. While it offers new features like the Radeon Overlay and the AMD Link mobile application, Adrenalin Edition improves the functionality of existing programs and houses them in a convenient fashion.

With the Radeon Overlay, all your options can be accessed while in-game and can be changed on-the-fly. Performance monitoring options include live metrics and internal logging of that information. ReLive has been around since last year--which allows users to capture gameplay, launch a stream, and take screenshots--but it can now be customized in the overlay with plenty of options. Streamers can change the position of their picture-in-picture, adjust microphone settings, and record instant replays.

Users can also access Radeon Chill, a dynamic video card power management technology, which now supports more games through a catch-all profile. It also has support for games that use the Vulkan graphics API. Radeon Wattman lets you adjust performance manually, and it's accessible through the overlay and allows for saved profiles. FRTC now supports Vulkan games, too; this program lets you set framerate targets so the video card adjusts properly based on its set goal.

NSFW: PlayerUnknown Apologizes for Battlegrounds' CamelToeGate
Dec 11, 2017 - 2:44 PM - by Emabulator

Eurogamer has the story.

Over the weekend, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds fans discovered a surprising change to the game's female character model: suddenly, it had camel toe.

Camel toe, AKA the imprint of female genitalia upon too-tight clothing, had not been there previously. But there it was on PUBG's test server.

You can see the old character model compared to the new one in the comparison below.

Players reacted with surprise and some anger at the alteration. Many of the responses on reddit and Twitter simply asked "why?". Others demanded PlayerUnknown himself - the game's creator, Brendan Greene - offer an explanation.

Early this morning, Greene replied to the furore, blaming the change on an out-dated character model from an outsourced artist. The model will now be "updated", Greene promised, adding: "Sorry for any offense caused!"

Overkill’s The Walking Dead Cinematic Trailer
Dec 11, 2017 - 11:10 AM - by Evil Avatar

Starbreeze releases new cinematic trailer for Overkill’s the Walking Dead revealing the co-op action shooter’s first character, Aidan

A new cinematic trailer was released today for Overkill’s The Walking Dead, the upcoming cooperative first-person shooter in development by OVERKILL – A Starbreeze Studio, together with its partners Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games. This video features Aidan, the first of the game’s four unique playable characters fighting to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world.

Inspired by the rich story universe of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer FPS action game set in Washington, D.C., as an outbreak brings the dead back to life. In this test of strategy and endurance, players will band together with up to three friends on a variety of missions and raids, securing supplies and survivors to strengthen their base camp against the threat of both the dead and the living – by any means necessary.

Each playable character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories. Now they all share a common objective where survival and teamwork is paramount. The action is close-up and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attacks or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise, as nothing is certain, and a horde of walkers is always around the corner.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is expected to launch fall 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. For the latest updates, visit overkillsthewalkingdead.com

But the visiting team has supporters who travel well, and the home team has a player who literally begged fans to show up. FOX sees the impending Eagles takeover coming a mile away.

So, what does Los Angeles produce better than sports fans? Aspiring actors! And FOX is seeking them to be Rams fans for Sunday's pregame festivities, according to a casting call online:

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on Sunday, December 10th in Los Angeles, California.

Producers are seeking the following types:

We’re looking for LA’s biggest NFL fans to be a part of #NFLSunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pre Game Show!

Calling all LA Rams fans!

God Of War PS4 Will Take 25-35 Hours To Complete
Dec 09, 2017 - 1:20 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

The upcoming God of War game for PS4 aims to be quite a bit different from the previous entries in the series. As opposed to Greek gods, it takes Kratos to a land dominated by Nordic gods and monsters; it's also meant to be a more intimate story about Kratos and his son. As the developer revealed today during the PSX 2017 opening presentation, the game is also going to be much longer than its predecessors.

Creative Director Cory Barlog announced on stage that the game will take about 25-35 hours to complete. This would make it significantly larger than the mainline entries in the series. For comparison, all three core God of War games average around 10 hours to beat.

This means that God of War PS4 is going to have a lot more content than previous titles, which Barlog hopes will be filled with exploration. There'll be different paths you can take through the world, and Barlog wants players to treat the game as a "tour bus."

Sir Daniel is Back! Medievil PS4 Remake in the Works
Dec 09, 2017 - 9:31 AM - by Chimpbot

Sir Daniel Fortesque is making a comeback!

Sony will be resurrecting the old PSX classic Medievil on the PS4 with a brand-new 4k remaster, due out sometime in 2018.

"Hot on the heels of this year's smash hit Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, we're making another PlayStation fan dream come true: a proper, PS4-grade resurrection of the original MediEvil just in time for the game's 20th anniversary," Sony chief Shawn Layden said.
Nothing more is known about the remake at this point, but Sony will be releasing further details in the coming weeks.

Sweet. This is the sort of remaster I like seeing.

Bayonetta 1 and Bayonetta 2 are coming to Nintendo Switch in a bundle, Nintendo announced during The Game Awards tonight. The bundle comes with a physical copy of Bayonetta 2 for Switch, but the bundled copy of the first game is only available digitally.

The Bayonetta 1-2 bundle will launch for Switch on February 16.

World War Z gets a four-player co-op survival game, adapts the film not the book
Dec 08, 2017 - 6:04 AM - by Emabulator

VG247 has the story.

Another announcement from The Game Awards last night, World War Z is being adapted as a four-player co-op survival game “coming soon” to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The game looks to take it takes most of its cues from the movie version of World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, rather than the novel by Max Brooks – which makes sense due to the apparent involvement of Paramount Pictures.

The suitably moody reveal trailer shows desolated landscapes from around the world, hinting at the variety of maps that might be on offer when the game drops.

World War Z is being developed by Saber Interactive, who’ve worked on third-person co-op shooter God Mode, a few other movie-licensed games, as well as arcadey basketball sim NBA Playgrounds.

Streets of Rage Is Now Available On Mobile, With Local Cross-Platform Multiplayer
Dec 06, 2017 - 5:47 PM - by Emabulator

SEGA! Eurogamer has the story.

Classic side-scrolling beat-'em-up Streets of Rage is now available on mobile as part of the Sega Forever retro games service. It supports local, two-player co-operative fisticuffs over wi-fi, and even works cross-platform between iOS and Android devices.

Streets of Rage, for the benefit of those too young or too pre-occupied at the time to remember, released on Mega Drive in 1991, and was the first instalment in what would eventually become a trilogy of Streets of Rage beat-'em-ups. It includes much denim.

Streets of Rage notably featured co-operative multiplayer brawling, with two players able to choose from the chiselled core trio of Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding, and Adam Hunter as they battled across the city in search of the nefarious Mr. X.

The new mobile incarnation replicates the original's two-player mode over wi-fi, and is the first emulated Sega Forever title to offer multiplayer.

Like all other game on the Sega Forever service, Streets of Rage is free to play with ads, or can pay a couple of quid to have them permanently removed for a slightly more unfettered retro experience. It also features leaderboards, cloud saves, and controller support.

Hawaii Legislator Chris Lee Explains His Plans For Games With Lootboxes
Dec 06, 2017 - 1:58 PM - by Emabulator

Game Informer has the story.

Hawaii State Representative Chris Lee made waves a few weeks ago when he announced plans to investigate lootboxes in video games as possible gambling. Now, he has released a video explaining what exactly he plans to do.

The main thing Lee wants is to enact legislation that bans the sale of games containing what he calls "gambling mechanics" to minors. In other words, games like Battlefront II would be legally barred from being sold to people under the age of 18, a prohibition that does not even extend to Mature-rated games.

Lee clarifies that this would need to apply to both physical and digital products, which is key as the self-regulatory ESRB currently does not exercise mandatory control over digital storefronts.

The representative from Hawaii also expressed concern with timing design of lootboxes and drops, suggesting that they are designed to take advantage of people by psychologically manipulating drops. While Lee acknowledges this information isn't confirmed and is mostly based on conjecture, it is worth noting that publisher Activision has patented a method of matchmaking that encourages microtransactions.

"Once the algorithm identifies a player who's likely to keep spending money to buy that one 'unicorn thing' that they're after... then they lower the odds and then you keep spending more," Lee says. "It's absolutely unethical and unfair."

Lee wants accountability legislation to prevent game publishers from taking advantage of people using behind-the-scenes lootbox drop rate numbers. He does not explain how in the video, but presumably wants to enact something similar to China's model of presenting lootbox content rates before players can buy them.

Darkest Dungeon's Next DLC Expansion is the Farm-Themed 'The Color of Madness'

More Darkest Dungeon is a good thing. Eurogamer has the story.

Developer Red Hook has announced The Color of Madness, the latest paid DLC expansion for its superb Lovecraftian stress box, Darkest Dungeon.

The Color of Madness will be the third paid expansion for Red Hook's visually striking, relentlessly punishing turn-based RPG, following on from The Crimson Court and the more recent, smaller-scale Shieldbreaker DLC.

"Some hateful shard of alien origin has streaked through the night sky, crashing into the old Miller's farm on the outskirts of the Hamlet!", says Red Hook, "Those unfortunate enough to witness the Comet's arrival have been blinded by what they can only describe as a shifting, ephemeral hue of damnably abrasive intensity. There has been no word from the farm in a fortnight, save for the unearthly groaning that echoes from the ruin of the mill..."

Ubisoft Are Giving Away Assassin's Creed IV and World in Conflict This Month On Uplay
Dec 04, 2017 - 4:49 PM - by Emabulator

PCGamesN has word that Ubisoft is giving away World in Conflict and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for free this month on Uplay.

One of the best side bonuses of modern PC gaming is the fact that new games tend to just materialize in your digital distribution account of choice. I couldn’t tell you how I got this copy of Serious Sam 3 if my life depended on it, but I’m sure glad it’s there. Now Ubisoft are offering to expand your library even further as a little holiday gift, and all you have to do is log into Uplay.

Okay, I realize you might be entirely keen on adding Ubisoft’s long-maligned digital distribution service to your regular rotation of game clients, but at least hear ‘em out. Starting now and lasting until December 11, you’ll be able to grab a free copy of the excellent alt-history RTS World in Conflict, along with its Soviet Assault expansion.

Then, from December 12 through December 18, you’ll be able to pick up the pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for free. You can even pretend you’re pirating it if that makes you feel like more of a high seas scallywag.

Capcom Announces Mega Man 11 and Re-Releases for All Eight Mega Man X Games
Dec 04, 2017 - 4:17 PM - by Emabulator

Eurogamer has the story.

In a frenzy of Mega Man-themed merriment, Capcom has unveiled a brand-new mainline series entry for the Blue Bomber in the form of Mega Man 11, re-releases for all Mega Man X games, and the long-awaited release of both Mega Man Legacy Collections on Switch.

All three announcements were made as part of Mega Man's 30th anniversary year, which begins this month and runs throughout 2018.

Capcom revealed Mega Man 11 - the first mainline series entry since 2010 - in a fun little video that walked the iconic character through 30 years of Mega Manning. That, it turns out, is whole lot of Mega Man when you factor in every core series entry, plus the X, Zero, ZX, Legends, Battle Network, and Star Force games.

Capcom's big blue blast of nostalgia concluded with the first look at Mega Man 11 - which, based on its debut showing at least, sticks to the series' traditional side-scrolling, action-platforming roots, albeit with a major visual overhaul.

Mega Man 11 ditches the classic retro sprites of previous games for a blend of hand-painted backgrounds and 3D character models. It's a style that's likely to be divisive among fans, but you can form your own opinions by watching the announcement trailer above. Mega Man 11 is due to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Switch late 2018.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is Rolling Out Credit Changes
Dec 04, 2017 - 1:42 PM - by Emabulator

EA and DICE have rolled out some credit changes to their recent alleged attempt at fleecing gamers, Star Wars Battlefront II.

It's been a busy few weeks for Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II. We’re excited to have launched the game to the world, but recognize that there have been some challenges along the way. We have learned a lot, and are making adjustments to the game to ensure the best experience possible. On Tuesday, an update is rolling out that begins the Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II The Last Jedi Season by kicking off factional challenges, letting you choose a side and start competing for rewards as either The First Order or The Resistance.

Today, an update went live that includes some adjustments to the economy and progression. While these are only some initial steps toward making much larger changes, some of these are ready to roll, and are available starting today.

The end-of-round payout has been increased. This is an area we agree needed to be buffed a bit, especially when it comes to rewarding players for doing well in-game. We're upping the number of Credits you get for a match across the board, and specifically bumping the top players on each team by even more.

Earn 3X more Credits daily in Arcade Mode. It's been made clear that you were hitting the Arcade Mode Credit cap faster than we expected, so we wanted to alleviate that by increasing it to 1500 Credits. While we're still looking into ways to add more content into it the mode in the long-term, we think that this should help in the near-term for those who want rewards for completing the different scenarios.

Daily Login Crates will now provide more crafting parts than before. You'll notice the change right away when you log in. Crafting the Star Cards you want will help make sure you're progressing in the direction you want, and we absolutely wantto empower that. This should help you get where you want to go faster when it comes to crafting and upgrading.

Things kick into high gear over the next few weeks, during the Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II The Last Jedi Season, with free* heroes, maps, and vehicles. Stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the battlefront for the First Order. New locations and vehicles will also arrive: you can fight on the ground on the salt-covered planet of Crait in Galactic Assault mode, or take to space in the Starfighter Assault map of D'Qar (flying Tallie Lintra's RZ-2 A-wing, a vehicle you'll be seeing in the film).

And, of course, Iden Versio returns in Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II Resurrection during the days of the First Order’s rise to power. These new chapters of Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.

Thank you again for your passion around this game. Star Wars™ is special to all of us, and we all want to experience that world in fun, exciting ways. If you're already playing the game and are loving it, we want to thank you for taking the time to do so. We have a lot planned, and are excited to show you what’s to come.
