Today at EA’s E3 Press Conference, EA dropped some massive details about the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Battlefront II’s content will be three times as big as the original Star Wars Battlefront on PS4 and XB1. It will also feature content from across all eras of Star Wars that includes Prequels, Original Trilogy, and New Trilogy. Battlefront II sets out to bridge the gap between

Battlefront II’s single-player campaign sets out to bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and Force Awakens.

The game’s multiplayer will include a thing called Battle points which acts as an in-battle currency to buy things like weapons and vehicles. You will start each match with 0 Battle points and they will accrue as you continue to play any given match by doing various actions.

EA also took the time to announce that Battlefront II multiplayer will feature 20 vs 20 matches. To showcase this, they showed 30 minutes of multiplayer map Theed, which is new to BFII. You may know Theed from Episode I where it appeared as Naboo’s capital city. While on Theed, you’ll be able to pilot the various starships seen in Episode I’s battle of Naboo.

BFII’s multiplayer will include multiple Force Awakens Characters such as Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, and Captain Phasma.

Finn and Captain Phasma were announced to be available later as DLC, but luckily EA also announced that all post-launch content will be available via free updates to Battlefront II. The pair will be included in Decembers DLC drop which will come with the map Crait as well. Crait is the planet seen you may have seen in the trailer for The Last Jedi and I’m sure it will be a delight to play on.

Now, enjoy the Battlefront II trailer EA so pleasantly dropped at the end of their presentation:

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
