The Empire is without an emperor. Last week, a Star Wars Battlefront II update apparently brought back the evil Emperor Palpatine’s game-breaking ability to shoot lightning through walls. An emergency fix completely removed him from the game, and it’s unclear when he’ll return.
Battlefield V kicked off a closed alpha today, giving players a taste of what’s in store for the latest entry in EA’s shooter series, which will be released October 19. My coworker Paul Tamayo and I are huge fans of the Battlefield series, and have been dying to play the game. We sat down earlier today for some…
Sometimes it’s the little things that bug players. And sometimes those little things are worth fixing. That’s the case with Battlefront II, a game with a playerbase that’s been frustrated by microtransactions and a lack of new content but at least has had their call answered to get rid of the holograms in the game’s…
Star Wars: Battlefront II is working to overcome its image problem following a controversial release. A new season of content, related to Han Solo, hit the game today. Its smattering of character skins and a map lifted from 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront provide little for those hoping the game will bounce back from its…

Star Wars Battlefront II’s latest update brings microtransactions back to the game, allowing players to spend premium currency on cosmetic outfits. It’s an improvement over the ability granting loot boxes from early access but pricey skins add an unwelcome new grind to a game.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s new update overhauls the game’s loot box laden progression system. One of players’ biggest complaints since before the game was even officially out was how hard it was to unlock iconic characters like Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. A new patch finally unlocks every hero character in the…
Months after removing controversial microtransactions from Star Wars Battlefront II, publisher EA today announced its plans to bring them back, this time tied only to cosmetics rather than gameplay.

Players who earn enough points during Star Wars: Battlefront II matches can play as a variety of special characters, from hi-tech Stormtroopers to the Emperor himself, but none are as deadly as the Wookiee Warrior. A new patch has nerfed these overpowered creatures and brought an end to their hairy reign of terror.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s latest DLC features an expanded story and new worlds from The Last Jedi. It does its best to reinvigorate the game, but it ultimately falls short.
Straight from DICE's workshop, here's Battlefield 3's freshest DLC, End Game.

It's the one I have. Cosplay superstar and Kotaku favorite Omi Gibson does her best leap of Faith.
Kotaku's already shown twenty-three blissful minutes of lag-free Battlefield 3. The game looks realistic. It's like you're right there on the Caspian border. Know what's not realistic? Flying tanks. Oh, and spinning jeeps. Floating dudes, too.
