Battlefield 1 publisher EA has announced the game's first female multiplayer character, to be added via upcoming expansion In The Name of the Tsar.

Battlefield's global community manager Dan Mitre shared our first look at the fighter on Twitter last night. The unnamed soldier will be part of the 1st Russian Women's Battalion of Death.

22 May 2017, 9:34 pm

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed until spring 2018, Rockstar has announced.

Previously Rockstar had the Western sequel (or more likely prequel) slated for an autumn 2017 release, but that's no longer in the cards.

"This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans," the developer said of its highly anticipated adventure.

11 May 2017, 11:00 am

EA has put the Mass Effect series "on ice" following the Andromeda disappointment, according to Kotaku.

Developer BioWare Montreal is now a support studio, Kotaku said, helping out with the company's big new "live service" IP, codenamed Dylan.

This is not to say that the Mass Effect series is dead, Kotaku's Jason Schreier stressed. Rather, it's on hold for now, with no follow-up game being worked on currently.

More than 19 million people have played Battlefield 1
10 May 2017, 9:28 am

It sounds like EA's decision to take Battlefield to World War 1 worked out - the game's had over 19 million players.

That's not to say 19 million people currently play the game. It is to say 19 million people have played DICE's shooter since it came out up until the end of EA's 2017 financial year (April 2016 to March 2017).

Still, it's an impressive figure, and, crucially for EA, a significant step up from Battlefield 4 - 50 per cent up over Battlefield 4 in the same period from launch, in fact.

Big new For Honor patch goes a long way to making the game better
7 April 2017, 10:33 am

Ubisoft has released a big patch for For Honor that goes some way to addressing many of the concerns of the community.

Patch v1.05, out now on PC and soon on console, makes a huge number of balance changes to the game, but the headline tweak is a nerf to the controversial Peacekeeper, a hero considered so overpowered she was recently banned from tournament play.

Peacekeeper's Zone Attack, which was considered a very low risk and very high reward opener, even on block, has been tweaked to no longer give you a frame advantage on block. Other moves have increased recovery and decreased damage.
