Star Wars Battlefront will be Delayed if Needed to Improve Quality

Published

Star Wars Battlefront

In an effort not to repeat the Batman: Arkham Knight PC debacle, EA will delay Star Wars Battlefront if needed to ensure a high quality game at launch.

In an interview with MCV, EA COO Peter Moore was forthcoming about delaying Star Wars Battlefront if developer DICE wasn’t able to ship the game problem-free. He specifically stated that EA won’t release Star Wars Battlefront “if it doesn’t work or the quality isn’t right. “

Similar to Ubisoft (Assassin’s Creed Unity) and Warner Bros. (Batman: Arkham Knight PC), EA got a lot of negative feedback when Battlefield 4 launched in 2013 plagued with many, some game-breaking bugs that made it unplayable. It took the publisher months to address the issues.

As a sigh that it has probably learned its lesson, EA delayed Battlefield Hardline for a few months in order to iron out all the bad bugs, missing the lucrative Holiday 2014 season for a March 2015 launch instead.

Many gamers will lament at the idea of a game as hugely-anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront being delayed, but ask yourself this:

Will I be more disappointed with getting the game later than expected or with it releasing on time but with so many frustrating bugs that make it unplayable?

Despite Moore saying EA will delay Star Wars Battlefront if needed, he is confident it won’t have to, adding that game is already playable even with 40-players.

Let’s hope Star Wars Battlefront has a bug-free launch because we don’t think EA’s reputation came withstand gamers losing their sh*t over another one of their botched releases.

You can no longer access the Twitch website and Twitch iOS app in China, at least legally.

Twitch has confirmed that the Chinese government has blocked all access to its platform in mainland China.

The development comes on the heel of the Twitch iOS app reaching the third spot in the iTunes free apps chart, with the surge of popularly mostly owed to eSports and especially the Asian Games.

Although the reason for the ban wasn’t revealed, the fact that Twitch was the only way for Chinese fans to follow the event was what likely made it a target for the Chinese government.

Twitch now joins a growing list of major websites to be blocked in the world’s video game market, a list that includes the likes of Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

Considering that some of the Steam Community features are also inaccessible in China, it probably won’t be long until the main Steam store is also banned.

Valve has been taking preemptive measures should it also meet the same fate, having partnered with a Chinese publisher to launch a localized version in the country.

New N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer is Intense, See it

Published

The new N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda trailer that fans have been impatiently waiting for is finally here, and it’s intense.

We get to see more scripted and in-game footage of the game world, as well as ‘brother’ Ryder, his alien crew and what appears to be the main villain in action. It might have also confirmed the existence of Salarians in Andromeda.

The Andromeda Initiative recruitment page has been updated to coincide with the trailer’s release. It shows the user’s login details with the year 2184… the year just before the events of Mass Effect 2.

The Andromeda Initiative is scheduled to launch in 2185, the year Commander Shepherd returns from the dead (the beginning of Mass Effect 2). Three Ark ships, each containing three different species in cryo stasis, will leave the Milkyway for the new galaxy, with plans to wake up the occupants 600 years later.

Judging by the trailer, things don’t go according to plan.

Mass Effect Andromeda launches for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC in Spring 2017. Are you excited for the new adventure?
