During their recent quarterly earnings call, EA has revealed that since the game has been a very successful project so far, they intend to and currently negotiating terms to bring Apex Legends to China and on mobile in future.

Although there is not much detail to look at, it appears that the game would likely to debut on Android and iOS devices. In order to tap into a huge audience in world of mobile gaming, they wish to explore the Chinese markets at the same time.

Given how Battle Royale and free-to-play games becomes popular in past over a very short time, it was about time that Electronic Arts take steps toward mobile gaming territory just like Epic Games did with Fortnite Battle Royale.

Mobile gaming and Chinese market has been a lucrative aspect for video game developers and publishers these days. So, it is safe to say that Titanfall series spin-off is currently heading towards a direction for a better future up ahead.

The game is currently suffering from a huge decrease in player count due to developers taking a strict position against cheating and banned nearly a million players and not adding much content through Season 1 Battle Pass.

Respawn has been quiet for some time regarding updates for Apex Legends but publisher EA plans on to tackle this problem by adding more engaging content in Season 2, which will be revealed at EA Play event in June.

Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Will Be Revealed at EA Play and E3

Respawn will reveal gameplay video of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at EA Play and E3 2019 on next month.

After making its most anticipating reveal back at Star Wars Celebration 2019, developer Respawn Entertainment announced upcoming single-player Star Wars action-adventure game Jedi: Fallen Order will be out on November 15, 2019.

Although fan-response towards Fallen Order was quite positive in general, no gameplay footage has been shown in the reveal trailer and CEO Vince Zampella recently announced to showcase more of the game at EA Play and E3 2019.

Despite publisher Electronic Arts telling everyone that they would not feature any loot boxes or micro-transactions and entire game will be focused on a single player campaign, people simply can't take their word at face value given their past records.

Since publisher EA has horribly failed to meet expectation with Star Wars Battlefront II and then cancelled development for Star Wars game titled "Project Ragtag" in past, all are anticipating for Jedi: Fallen Order with high hopes.

By next month, eager fans and players would all have their much expected exclusive first-look at some actual gameplay to get hyped for and Respawn has confirmed showing up at two events then in a post on Twitter.

EA Play event usually kicks-off with video presentation and just before E3 each year but EA has decided to do things a bit differently in 2019 and getting rid of their presentation part to replace it with live-stream showcase from June 7-9.

Set right after the tragic events of Order 66 that purged almost every Jedi member throughout the galaxy except lone Padawan Cal Kestis, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be launched in late 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Origin Access Adds 12 EA Star Wars Games

Electronic Arts have added 12 new Star Wars games to Origin Access, Including original Star Wars Battlefront II.

To celebrate Star Wars Day on May 4th, dedicated fans from all over the world observes an unofficial holiday each year since 2011 that grew upon a popular catchphrase from Star Wars franchise and became an iconic part of fandom.

Being an exclusive licensed partner of Disney for publishing Star Wars games, Electronic Arts just added some notable greatest PC games from the renowned series to collection of their Origin Access monthly subscription service.

Since fans were not quite happy with how EA was rolling out Star Wars games in recent year, at least it was a slightly wise move to let people have a chance to go back to glory days for having fun with classic titles that defined the series.

Pretty much every old-school fans with Origin Access would love to indulge themselves with original Battlefront II, Jedi Academy and Republic Commando. If not, there are still more than 100 titles for members to try out and keep them busy for a while.

After their disastrous run with Star Wars Battlefront II in 2017 and cancelled game "Project Ragtag" under Visceral Games that was under development, EA has lost their credibility of producing decent Star Wars titles to fans.

Upon revealing of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at Star Wars Celebration last month, many are willing to give them one last chance. An official gameplay showcase for Fallen Order is announced to be taken place at EA Play and E3 2019 next month.

Apex Legends Bans 700,000 Cheaters

In a never-ending battle with cheaters, Respawn has banned over 700,000 players on Apex Legends so far.

Set within the fictional universe of Titanfall series, free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends by developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts became an instant hit upon launch and managed to amass 50 million players in a month.

However, one thing the game has been suffering from other than issues like constantly losing its player count is cheaters and Respawn is actively playing a vigilant role with EA to prevent them from ruining experience for others.

When Apex was initially launched, developers had to ban 16,000 cheaters right off the bat and that number has been increasing. Attempts to create over 300,000 new accounts have been thwarted and more than 4,000 cheat seller accounts are banned.

Above mentioned figures are just from past 20 days on PC platform and Respawn has blocked 770,000 players since release. Of course, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are not completely above cheating but those are much easier to keep an eye on.

RELATED: Apex Legends Crosses 50 Million Players

After deploying a reporting tool in Season One update, detecting issues regarding aim-assists, speed boosts, x-ray vision and other performance-enhancing mods selling became easier and more than half a million players got booted for such illicit activity.

Cheating in competitive multiplayer games is a constant problem and developers have teamed up with security and fraud unit of Electronic Arts in order to continue crusade of delivering a clean and healthy environment for players to enjoy the experience.

RELATED: Apex Legends Rumored to Include Titans

Although developer team has refused to share how they are fighting the battle but they are attacking cheaters and its sellers from any and every possible angle they can with every resources and tools they can get their hands on.

Despite losing much of early momentum, Apex Legends has still great potential for eSports but much of that possibility is threatened by cheating and CEO of Respawn, Vince Zampella intends to release more seasonal updates to retain players while they continue this fight.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Revealed

Trust only in the Force because Respawn Entertainment and EA have officially revealed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Even though we all got an early look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order teaser poster via a leak on Amazon listing, no one is any bit of less hyped about what developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts would have unveiled today.

Aside from an anticipated wait for title reveal of Star Wars: Episode IX movie from sequel trilogy, Fallen Order remains to be one of the most anticipated parts of Star Wars Celebration 2019 and a teaser is finally revealed via a Twitch live-stream.

Chronicling an aftermath of tragic Jedi purge throughout the galaxy, a lone Padawan makes it out and tries his best to blend within society and he is trying to survive by abiding to certain rules while surrounded by enemies everywhere.

He somehow finds something similar to a ship behind a hidden bunker like place; most probably by climbing on to the cliff side he was scaling previously seen in leaked teaser poster and it probably has some message for him or any survivors.

Keeping a low profile, Cal socializes and avoids detection from scouting Stormtroopers but life eventually brings him to a situation where he had to choose between saving a life by using the Force and blow up his cover or letting someone he know, die.

Inadvertently, he crosses paths with Second Sister Inquisitor and tried to run unsuccessfully as we see him being chased down Imperial army. Although help came along as some rebel force and he picks up a broken lightsaber seen from first teaser image.

So far, Fallen Order looks pretty impressive but we still have to look at some gameplay footage as we simply cannot trust EA after Battlefront II. Though ahead of reveal, EA did confirm that there would be no micro-transactions in their upcoming Star Wars game.

Respawn has already proven their worth to video gamers by delivering massively popular game series like Apex Legends and Titanfall, which is the only reason players have been waiting to see this single-player story come to life.

Battlefield V Firestorm Battle Royale Gameplay Trailer

Firestorm Battle Royale mode will bring new aspects to last-man-standing shooter and comes to Battlefield 5 on March 25.

Though first-person shooter Battlefield V from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts didn't fare well when it was released back in November 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, many hoped for the post-launch content to change that.

Battlefield fans were hoping that upcoming Battle Royale mode Firestorm would really shake things up for good and we even had an early peak at it from a leaked footage. We saw an official introductory video of what it is about and now there is more.

We saw four player squads dropping in parachutes from above and then immediately forced to engage in a combat within a massive sandbox where they all race against a deadly ring of fire quickly consuming everything on its path of destruction.

Firestorm mostly embraces different gunplay mechanics of BV along with combat vehicles, destructible surroundings and impressive visuals. It offers you a wide array of different rides at launch, including a tractor with mounted cannon on its back.

Whether you are roaming on land, sky or water, with or without assistance, always have a look out for someone trying to ambush on you even if you are in an armored vehicle, because enemies can always fire up some anti-vehicle weapon at you.

You will also be looking for common, rare and epic weapons throughout the map while sometime even came across strongboxes or safes to get the best loots available but chances are, there will be some risks of going after them as well.

Battlefield V Firestorm Official Reveal

Official Firestorm reveal trailer for Battle Royale mode of Battlefield V heralds the release date to be March 25.

Even though standard Battle Royale games offer a 100 player stand-off to death, developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts will allow only 64 to compete in Firestorm mode of their latest first-person shooter game Battlefield V.

A statement issued back in October 2018 announced that players will not receive battle royale mode until March 2019 and now, March 25 is revealed to be the release date for it to all BFV players worldwide via a new trailer dropped by EA.

Check out the brand-new official reveal trailer for Firestorm, featuring brief battle royale action sequences from Battlefield 5.




RELATED: Battlefield V: Tides of War Chapter 2: Lighting Strikes Release Date

The trailer starts with a typical style for last-man-standing shooter where we see soldiers jumping off planes in parachute to their destined battleground and help each other out to bring them to their feet, only to notice other squads to drop nearby.

Then they each head to nearby establishments to seek cover and weapons, followed by a shootout between two parties. Bombs starts dropping from above when a red flare is shot at the house next to barn filled with a rival group.

RELATED: Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

The gang who arrived first is now out in the open and one of their members finds a tractor that they use to ram through opposing force to break out of the barn they were in. To evade an ever imposing ring of fire on them, they all hop in a helicopter found close at hand.

Moving to a new land to fight, they come across an enemy boat and one of them is lost in the ensuing gunfire. By the time they reach to ground, tanks are deployed, dams are destroyed, forests are burnt and the fire is closing in quicker.

The fight reaches to a climax and the leader of the group draws out his melee weapon to charge at an enemy when he is out of ammo and another of his squad member bites the dust while one of his teammates attempts to shoot that man by targeting him via rifle scope.

Introducing Battlefield's biggest map ever from DICE team, Firestorm lets player engage solo or in 4-person squads as they collect loots and unlock vehicles to ride to victory parade aside from calling in V-1 flying bomb for reinforcements.

RELATED: Battlefield V Battle Royale Firestorm Footage Leaked

Despite a lot of complaints against the developers for failing to live up to expectation and release of an early leaked footage of Battle Royale mode, Firestorm trailer still manages to shine and promise players a great experience that would probably help them redeem themselves.

Set on World War II era, Battlefield V is currently available for everyone to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Though it may sound a little disappointing but those who want to play in duos will have to wait till April 2019 for the mode to finally arrive on the game.

Apex Legends Rumored to Include Titans

Respawn Entertainment is rumored to add giant robot Titans to their sensational battle royale shooter Apex Legends.

Ever since developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts came up with free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One based on their renowned Titanfall series, it has taken over the genre.

Although we are not getting Titanfall 3 anytime soon, Respawn is rumored to add iconic mech-styled Titans from the series to this latest Battle Royale spin-off title that has already topped 50 million player counts within a month of release.

Even before the game arrived for all, people were hoping to see those hulking machines rampaging throughout the battlegrounds but no one really was quite sure how they would fit into the gameplay mechanics of the title.

Set in Titanfall universe after the events of Titanfall 2, the last-man-standing shooter takes place on a lawless sector of victorious militia force Frontier called the Outlands. So, those 20-feet tall machines can start stomping around the landscape of Apex anytime now.

The clip is taken from an early and unreleased build of Apex that features voice lines uttered by a Pathfinder that includes mention of Infected, Reapers, Spectres and Stalkers other than Titans, all belonging to the same fictional universe.

All three of Reapers, Spectres and Stalkers are known ground enemy types from previous games of the franchise. "Infected Coming In" line probably refers to players infecting other rivals to join their side much like Halo's "Infected" mode.

Ever since first-person shooter title Battlefield V from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts is launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year, it has been in series of troubles but players are still waiting for some of its post-launch content.

RELATED: Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

Though many already knows that Firestorm is designed as a last-man-standing shooter on World War II premise where 64 player will try to hunt each other down for the ultimate glory but there will be twist on traditional Battle Royale fashion.

According to the leaked BV clip, you can jump into the middle of action after picking from Solo, Duo and Squads options. Scavenging for items and weapons will begin as soon as people are dropped on the open-world map in parachute.

RELATED: Battlefield V Multiplayer Trailer

Depending on where you chose to land, availability of loot would vary from their quantity and type. As landing spots, urban areas will reward players with more gear but would also present great challenges as everyone else would be after them.

Throughout the map, you will come across objectives and safes that will lead you to combat vehicles, rare items and reinforcements. These are the tools with advantages that one needs to change the course of fight and secure victory in the end.

RELATED: Battlefield V Delay Hurts EA Stock Price

Weapon categories are divided into three different tiers; Common, Rare and Epic, all requiring unique ammo and not much of them can be carried. So, inventory management skill would come in handy or you can share loot with your teammates until you find a backpack to extend slots.

Class specific perks are not a part of Firestorm battle royale mode as you and your squad is fighting for life. Downed players can still use their sidearm while being revived by some allies but it would only work as long as you don't bleed out completely.

RELATED: Battlefield V Single Player Story Trailer

In overall comparison, B5 apparently made many improvements to the genre that would hopefully get enough traction and responding to the original Reddit leak, EA took Twitter to state that there are more to come than what we just saw here. Can't wait to find that out!

Although there are no respawning like Apex Legends and no 100-player support like we have in Fortnite or Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, Battlefield V is adding their own unique takes to make Battle Royale mode great again.

Soon, people from all over the world took notice of its presence and quickly start comparing it to the closest market competitor, Fortnite Battle Royale, which is another Battle Royale game that has seen a booming growth in a very short time.

RELATED: TERA X PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Collaboration Event

Fortnite took an entire 16 weeks to amass 45 million players but back then, that number was pretty remarkable. After its launch in September 2017, the game picked up 125 million players and accomplished 200 million participants so far.

However, Apex has gathered more than what Epic Games' last-man-standing shooter did in a couple of months but at an incredibly faster rate by reaching 50 million players mark in 28 just days, thus putting other titans of the industry in shame.

RELATED: Apex Legends Free Loot on Twitch Prime

Fortnite originally launched with a co-op survival game mode titled Save the World but failed to gain traction from players until they came up with free-to-play Battle Royale component. Aside from a massive player base, it garnered cultural relevance and huge popularity.

Although both Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are still ruling champions when it comes to Battle Royale genre, Apex Legends surely is a new champion on the rising and probably the competition that can possibly overthrow the reigning supreme.

The game surely turned heads with so many incredible features and created the right amount of hype but got into the skepticism of many with their disastrous demo launch, overly complex release schedule and overpriced cosmetic loot boxes in general.

Overall, Anthem could live up to be its own title with true potential given some time and even have a great fan-following like Destiny franchise. BioWare currently has plans of releasing post-launch content and updates to support the game for long.

Apex Legends has totally taken over the popular streaming platform with a strong viewership and thrown off former king of the hill, Fortnite by the storm. Previously, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Overwatch and PUBG has partnered up with Twitch Prime for similar sponsorship program.

One may think that BioWare and Electronic Arts dropped the trailer too early but they are going full throttle with Anthem marketing campaign to redeem the credibility of the publisher in market and make up to their VIP Demo disaster earlier.

Whereas players were looking forward to Titanfall 3 from first-person shooter game series Titanfall by Respawn, they get a Battle Royale game and with that, it is easily presumable that second sequel is not coming out anytime soon.

Despite being set in the universe of Titanfall, there will not be any Titans to hop on, so expect no wall running and no slide hopping. However, Apex Legends will take place right after the events in Titanfall 2 if you are wondering.
