Celebrities have also gotten into the act, French Montana, A$AP Ferg, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as wells car brands Aston Martin, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Polestar and Honda joined in on the racing action. BMX magician Nigel Sylvester has also helped get players hyped for the game by dropping films using his unique film style, capturing a night of him racing through the Miami streets in his Mercedes Benz AMG GTR.

Need For Speed: Heat looks to bring new energy to the famed racing video game franchise with its brand-new-open world gameplay where street racers compete in sanctioned events to earn bank during the day only to risk it all night to build rep. The game launches Nov. 8 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The NFS Studio app is available now in both the Apple and Google Play stores.

In the latest trailer, we get to see Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s protagonist Cal Kestis, his droid companion BD-1 in action. We learn a bit more about the young padawan who is on the run following Chancellor/Emperor Palpatine initiating Order 66, the plot that almost rid the universe of the Jedi. We also see that Cal gets some from his new friends Cere (pictured above), a former Jedi and her furry pilot friend.

We also get a look at the main baddy, Second Sister, who takes great pride in using her lightsaber to take out Jedi. In the trailer, we actually get a small glimpse of an intense battle between Cal and his pursuer.

Cal also takes on some giant monsters as well, one, in particular, a giant bat-like creature that gets plenty of shine. Plus the young Jedi’s impressive lightsaber skills are again on full display. The trailer wasn’t the only thing EA/Respawn announced. Microsoft is dropping an all-new special edition Xbox One X and Xbox One S bundle. Fans can also look forward to a limited-edition Cal Kestis Hasbro Black Series figure, and a Cal Kestis Funko POP!

EA Announces ‘Need For Speed Heat’ Is Coming November 2019

Need For Speed is back. The famed street racing franchise last hit consoles back in 2017 with Need For Speed Payback, is set to return this year with Need For Speed Heat Electronic Arts announced today (August 14).

Developed by Ghost Studios, who also brought us 2013’s Need For Speed Rivals, 2015’s Need For Speed and Payback, Heat is an ode to Miami street racing. In the trailer, we are taken to the fictional open world of Palm City, where street racers compete in sanctioned competitions called Speedhunters Showdowns during the day. Players will earn bank from the races that they can use to “customize and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars.”

By night players will partake in underground races to build up their rep. At the same time, they will have to avoid “rogue cops” who are looking to steal your hard-earned money.

The last entry in the Need For Speed franchise, Payback, was met with criticism due to it relying on microtransactions. In a press release, Ghost Studios Creative Director, Riley Cooper touched on listening to fans this time around to deliver a better experience with Need For Speed Heat:

“We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known. Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customization, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”

Need For Speed Heat arrives November 8, 2019, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. EA Access, Origin, and Access Origin members will be able to enjoy up to 10 hours of playtime on November 10. You can watch the game’s announcement trailer below.

‘Anthem’ Reportedly Crashing PS4 Consoles, EA Says They’re Aware of Issue

Bioware/EA’s epic game Anthem did not launch as smoothly as the javelin’s do into flight inside the game. Players would love to jump into one of the Iron Man-like suits and go loot chasing, but reports are surfacing that game is crashing PS4 consoles.

Since the game’s release, it has been plagued by bugs, glitches and plenty of complaints that for the most part, Bioware has addressed with patches. A new issue is gaining traction with players taking to Reddit, and other forums complaining the game is either booting them to the main menu or bricking PlayStation 4 consoles in some cases.

A thread titled “This is the only game that causes a complete PS4 shutdown” started by a Reddit user who goes by the handle ForTheMasters details his dilemma with the game. He details how while playing he claims after he gets a game error it usually sends him to the main menu, the PS4 dashboard or worst case scenario shutdown the console entirely. Since he posted it on Sunday (March 3), it has received nearly 2,000 upvotes with other players responding stating their consoles considers the issue an improper shutdown like when you yank out the power cord when the console is powered on.

EA has responded tweet from its EAHelp Twitter account stating they are aware of the crashing issue and are investigating.

I recently have been playing Anthem and experienced getting booted due to connectivity issues and various glitches but not the bricking error. This has put my playing on hold for now, and I will be waiting for Bioware/EA to issue a fix. We will keep you updated on this story. Anthem is the latest big name title plagued by post-launch issues, see Bethesda’s disastrous Fallout 76 launch.
