Star Wars: Battlefront 2

After a promo leaked yesterday, EA has released the new full-length trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront 2 ‘Starfighter Assault’ game mode.

Focused primarily on space battles, the trailer shows off both ships and locations from across the entire saga. Beginning with the classic X-Wings and Y-Wings dog fighting with Tie Fighters, we jump forward (or is that back?) to Darth Maul’s Scimitar and Trade Federation fighters. From the off, it looks and sounds amazing, as hundreds of starfighters wage war around massive capital ships. A few familiar ships also pop-up, including the Millennium Falcon and Slave I.

Even Yoda is getting in pn the action and it seems like he’s had enough, manning a laser cannon that looks bigger than he is.

The ‘Starfighter Assault’ game mode being showcased really looks to be upping the stakes after Star Wars: Battlefront finally got space battles in the Death Star DLC.

With the flying aspect of the game being handled by Criterion Games, these space battles look intense, using camera angles and the sense of speed seen in the recent films. Matt Webster, the general manager of Criterion Games, has confirmed that space battles will be a major part of both the single-player campaign (which follows directly after the Battle of Endor) and multiplayer, giving fans plenty of chance to get to grips with their favorite starfighter.

Webster also confirmed that each ship will handle similarly, with the skills and perks that a player picks up as they play through the multiplayer making the difference rather than using specific vehicle stats. All ships can be flown in first-person and we expect to see several more be shown off in the run up to release.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will launch on November 17th for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. On top of that, players will be able to get a taste of the action in the open beta running from October 4th to October 9th.

The new game from Danganronpa’s developers is being published by Aniplex, a Sony company, but it won’t be coming out on PS5

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

Would you like to see any of these changes made? Are you still excited about Shadow of the Erdtree? Get ready by reading the comments below.
