Battlefield 3: Armored Kill gets new gameplay trailer

Battlefield 3: Armored Kill gets new gameplay trailer

Depending on who you ask, Battlefield 3 is the game to beat when it comes to military shooters. There's just one tiny problem: while Activision and Treyarch have really stepped it up with their Modern Warfare 3 DLC offerings, EA and DICE have been falling behind with Battlefield 3's. Sure, we've got Back to Karkand and Close Quarters, but those didn't really add anything that plays to the grand scale we know Battlefield is capable of. Enter Armored Kill, which takes the battle from cramped indoor locations and moves it to sprawling outdoor arenas that are perfect for some vehicular combat.

Electronic Arts joins coalition of US businesses against DOMA

It's typically a rare thing when video games and politics collide, but in 2012 we're seeing it happen on an increasingly frequent basis. Earlier this year many video game companies came out against SOPA and PIPA, and now Electronic Arts has announced that it has joined the coalition of US businesses that stand against the Defense of Marriage Act. DOMA, as many of you probably already know, is a law that was enacted in 1996 which defines marriage as being between one man and one woman. Now, Electronic Arts is asking that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals "find portions of the Act unconstitutional."

Battlefield 4 beta not exclusive to MoH: Warfighter after all

Yesterday, Electronic Arts announced an "exclusive" Battlefield 4 beta for those who pre-order Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition. Shortly after the announcement, Battlefield 3 community manager Ian Tornay took to Reddit to answer any questions fans may have about the upcoming sequel, and as it turns out, a lot of fans had a problem with the use of the word "exclusive" in EA's announcement.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted pre-order bonuses announced

It also rewards players with double speed points during their first four hours of Most Wanted's multiplayer.

Ultima IV getting resurrected as a free-to-play game

It's been quite a long time since players have had a good Ultima game they can really sink their teeth into, but that may all soon be changing thanks to the efforts of BioWare Mythic. The team is taking Ultima IV and updating it for the current generation, turning it into a free-to-play title for PC and iOS. Dubbed Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar, this game sounds like it could be everything you could want out of an Ultima remake... so long as you can get past the "free-to-play" aspect first.

Peter Moore to replace John Riccitiello as EA CEO?

Peter Moore to replace John Riccitiello as EA CEO?

Are you in the mood for a whopper of a rumor? Let's hope, because we've got one here for you: anonymous sources tell Game Front that Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello is about to be let go, and that current EA Sports boss Peter Moore will step in to take his place. It goes without saying that you should probably take this with a grain of salt (or five), but if this is true, it could mean huge things for Electronic Arts, which has been experiencing some stock price woes recently.

Zynga paid too much for OMGPOP says EA CEO

Sometimes in life we all make impulse buys that we regret. But not often does it involve a $180 million purchase. As such, Zynga doesn't have a lot of company to console itself if it ever has buyer's remorse when it comes to OMGPOP, the one-trick pony that developed the incredibly popular mobile game Draw Something. The only problem is that Draw Something is starting to fizzle out just a matter of weeks after the acquisition happened.
