Last year around this time, mobile developer Kabam and Disney released Star Wars: Uprising, a “dull Diablo clone” set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It’s shutting down in November.
It’s rare that the removal of a feature from a video game makes fans of that game happy, but fans of Star Wars Battlefront seem pretty happy that, thanks to a new update, anyone playing as a Stormtrooper in the game is forced to keep their helmet on.
The new paid Death Star expansion for Star Wars Battlefront won’t significantly alter the game’s reputation as a fairly casual shooter designed for quick, chaotic fun. But it does add an interesting three-stage mode that culminates with the possible destruction of the Death Star. That new mode at least makes a session…
The X-Wing miniatures game is very, very good. If there’s a complaint I have about it, though, it’s that there isn’t a campaign mode for more long-term play and...oh, wait, thanks to a very dedicated fan, now there is. Wonderful.
A little while ago, ArtStation ran a competition with Industrial Light & Magic asking some of the world’s best artists to “imagine key moments, new vehicle designs, character and droid designs, and epic battles within the Star Wars universe”. The winners have now been announced, and they are fantastic.
The ambitious MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies shut down servers in 2011 but the fan run servers of SWGEmu keeps an old version of the game alive. There are countless players still enjoying a game that officially died years ago. What brings people back to the galaxy far, far away after all this time?
Jason Lewis, a senior environment artist for Obsidian Entertainment, started a personal project earlier this year that was meant to teach him the ins-and-outs of Unreal 4. That project soon ballooned, and other developers at Obsidian got involved in making what they’re calling an “interactive fan art piece.”
Until recently, the folks behind the popular Dolphin GameCube and Wii emulator software have been able to run every GameCube game in the official Nintendo library save one: Star Wars: Clone Wars. Now it finally works.
Han Solo is cool. That’s his whole thing. He looks cool, says cool shit and does cool things. In this week’s Han Solo #3 comic, he continues the trend, wearing a get-up so awesome that I want it to exist outside of comics.
Just think of all the fingerprint smudges that will soon make this very fancy soldier suddenly look a lot less fancy.
OliveSeon, a team of Korean LEGO builders, have designed and constructed one of the most impressive Star Wars creations I have ever seen.
Kenny Baker, the man who played R2-D2 in the Star Wars films has died at the age of 81, after battling a long illness. (Updated with reactions from Star Wars community)
We finally got another trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last night, and it was packed full of new stuff—including, of course, Darth Vader. We’ve gone through it with a magnifying glass and all of our nerdery to see what secrets and details are hiding inside it.
Ever wondered what Star Wars vs D-Day would look like? Rogue One’s got your answer.
The best things come to those who wait—especially those who wait in line. Giving up their precious time to stand in a line for hours (or days) to do or see something cool has always been a badge of honor for fans. I have many such badges, because I’ve waited in a lot of lines for a lot of things. And I have very few…
While he’s one of the more impressive creature costumes in The Force Awakens, Grummgar spends his entire on-screen time sitting on the couch. Unlike this cosplay, which can get up and move around and do space mercenary stuff wherever the hell it wants.
The filmmakers from Sneaky Zebra are back with a sequel to a 2013 short film called Prop Wars, where countless movie replicas are used in an epic battle between a group of friends. Prop Wars: Prop Harder draws its inspiration from countless blockbusters including Tron: Legacy, The Force Awakens, Men In Black, Evil Dead…
Mod team turned development studio Frontwire Games been making a lot of noise over its free fan recreation of the cancelled Star Wars: Battlefront 3. Turns out Lucasfilm is fine with them making the game, as long as there’s no Star Wars in it.
