The trailer for EA’s new Stars Wars game, Star Wars Battlefront II, features many familiar characters – Yoda, Rey, Darth Maul and more – but is introducing a first: players can choose to play as Imperial Special Forces Commander Iden Versio (voiced by Janina Gavankar, The League, Sleepy Hollow), who is introduced in trailer.
Star Wars Battlefront II will be in stores on November 17th.

Did you know the French army during WW1 led the beginning of tank warfare? In Battlefield 1’s first expansion pack, They Shall Not Pass, the French army joins the battle in a brutal defense of their homeland. Players can engage in the largest French tank assault of the Great War and take control of new weapons and vehicles including an all-new behemoth, the Char C2 tank. A brand new mode and two new Operations are also playable across the fiery furnace of Verdun, underworld of Fort Vaux, beautiful French countryside of Soissons and the bridges along the Aisne river. I just bought this on sale for $19 a few weeks ago and it looks gorgeous on my PS4 Pro. Checkout the official website for more info.
If ever there was a TV series that was begging to be the basis of a video game, that series would be Into the Badlands with its well-built world and multiplicity of martial arts fighting styles.
It should come as no surprise, then, that AMC and Reliance Games have partnered to develop Into the Badlands Blade Battle – a Massively Multiplayer Martial Arts Mobile Game.
Launching early this year, the game will feature characters from the series ‘engaging in isometric one vs. many combat.’
Details follow the break.

Sony’s next gen console, the PS4 Pro finally hits the streets today. I was tempted to purchase one, but the lack of a 4K UHD drive made this a no go. Yes, I know Sony is pushing this system as a game console first, which isn’t a bad way to go but there aren’t any original games available for it launch; just a bunch of titles being patched to take advantage of the system’s 4K up-scaling and increased processing capabilities. Gamers who don’t have a 4K tv can benefit from the PS4 Pro’s super charged processors and improved graphics chops.
My LG 4K OLED already upscales everything so I’m not sure what the point would be for me. I have no desire to replay my old games, just because they may look prettier. Next year when games are designed with the Pro in mind it may be worth a pickup. The console retails for $400 and is available now. Here’s the official press release with all your tech specs.

I love me some Call of Duty! I think it’s one of the few game franchises where I beat every single player campaign since the beginning. Batman Arkham series is the only other franchise that holds that personal milestone. I’m not to enamored with the idea of COD in space, but Modern Warfare: Remastered? Hell Yeah. I want.
PS4 fans who pre-ordered the deluxe edition can now play a remastered Modern Warfare Level now, a full month ahead of everyone else. Meaning all you snot nosed brats will once again be fully leveled up before the rest of us mere mortals. I wish they’d bring back Nazi’s. Can we have Nazi’s in space, or Time Travel COD?
