Launching last year, EA and DICE’s World War 1 shooter Battlefield 1 has proven to be incredibly popular. Battlefield 1 has 21 million players across the globe, with players enjoying its multiplayer and the insight it offers into the monstrosities of the Great War. So it may come as a surprise, then, that the next Battlefield game is already in the works.

During the company’s most recent financial call,  EA CEO Andrew Wilson revealed that next year, the company will “continue delivering for our Battlefield fans, including the next great game in the franchise.” With all of EA’s top franchises, the focus is on “advancing the state-of-the-art in games for players on every platform” including “delivering new and compelling ways to discover, engage and enjoy games.”

The confirmation that a new Battlefield game is in development raises a lot of questions, namely what will happen to Battlefield 1. Later this year, the game will add Russian content with the In The Name of the Tsar expansion DLC and at Gamescom 2017, EA will also detail a new eSports game mode as well as new maps.

Wilson also called it the “richest Battlefield experience” yet. However, in less than a year’s time, EA will probably begin hyping the next Battlefield game and fans will want to know why it’s worth continuing to spend money on Battlefield 1 when the game may not have much of a future left.

Another question is what the new Battlefield game will use as its focus. Many appreciated Battlefield 1‘s World War 1 theme, as it is a conflict that doesn’t always get the video game treatment, but would EA and DICE stick to it and find more ways to show the conflict? But that comes with the risk of boring players and having them feel as though it’s Battlefield 1.5 rather than a full follow up.

If the backlash to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (a Battlefield 1 rival) is any indication, fans have also grown cold on shooters that are too futuristic. But on the other hand, the World War 2 setting of this year’s Call of Duty: WW2 could also mean that fans could be fatigued if another blockbuster first-person shooter about WW2 released just a year later. The setting of the new Battlefield is up in the air, then, along with its name (Battlefield 2? Battlefield 6?) but as fans of the series wait for more official information, Battlefield 1 will have enough to keep them occupied.

Soon, you’ll experience battles on land, in the air, and at sea on the newest front for Battlefield 1™ as Battlefield 1 Turning Tides comes ashore. Read on and learn what awaits as you continue to conquer the entire Great War.

Battlefield 1 Turning Tides will be released in two waves – the first coming on December 11 for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners. This content drop will let you fight across a duo of epic maps: Cape Helles and Achi Baba. In a new Operation set on these maps, you can take part in the 1915 British amphibious assault of the Gallipoli peninsula. 6 weapons and 2 melee weapons will be added to your arsenal, and you’ll get to rule the waves with the L-Class Destroyer. There’s more coming after your December battles – you’ll be tackling the North Sea in January.

Coming January 2018, the second wave deploys you into the North Sea to tackle two other unique maps: Zeebrugge and Heligoland Blight. You’ll also get to charge into battle with the new Royal Marines and spawn on the C-Class Airship to deliver death from above.

As mentioned, Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners get a two-week head start with Battlefield 1 Turning Tides. Once their head start with the North Sea content has ended, Battlefield 1 Turning Tides will be available to purchase as a standalone expansion pack.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 press image

Games publisher EA has changed a rule in its Star Wars Battlefront II video game after a huge backlash.

During the game, players have to obtain credits - either by buying them or through long hours of game play - to unlock popular characters including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Many players said it was unfair as the gaming required worked out at around 40 hours per character, unless they paid.

EA says the number of credits required will now be reduced by 75%.

"Unlocking a hero is a great accomplishment in the game, something we want players to have fun earning," said executive producer John Wasilczyk from the developer Dice, in a statement.

The change will be effective from today, he added.

The credit system has faced huge criticism from the game's fans.

The game without any of the extras is available for pre-order for between £49.99 and £69.99 in the UK, which many felt meant there should not be additional payments for the most popular Star Wars characters.

A post by EA on community news site Reddit, explaining the reasons for the original rule, has become the most "down-voted" in the site's history.

The post explained that the rule was intended to "provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes".

The post currently has a score of - 639,000 points - which is a total of the number of "upvotes" (those who liked it) minus the number of "downvotes" (those who didn't).

According to Reddit's own statistics the previous most unpopular post had a score of -24,333 and that was a message which asked people to downvote it.

One of the game's developers, tweeting from a locked account, said he had received seven death threats and more than 1,600 "individual personal attacks".
