    Star Wars gaming on Xbox One

    Microsoft have announced that a new slew of classic Xbox titles will become compatible with their Xbox One console, including an impressive collection of Star Wars games which will join other titles in the Games On Demand section of the Xbox marketplace on 26 April 2018. The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was previously added when the backwards compatible section was launched last year. You can find the full list of Star Wars games that will be available on Xbox Games On Demand below: Star Wars: Battlefront Star Wars: Battlefront II Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords Star Wars: Republic Commando Additionally, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is available under the Xbox One X Enhanced series with updated graphics and visual effects.

  2. DICE's Star Wars Battlefront has opened the floodgates for gamers to sign up for the closed alpha testing of this eagerly anticipated game. One of the most eagerly awaited Star Wars video games in years, the long awaited reboot of the Star Wars Battlefront franchise has now launched the closed alpha sign-up process. The alpha is only for PC users, and does require an Origin account to join. You can head over to the Battlefront alpha application site now to apply for one of the limited spots available. Not everybody is being accepted, however, but if you are successful you will receive a confirmation email and see Battlefront appear alongside your other games in your Origin library. Launching the game is disabled for now but will be available to install from 1st July, ready for alpha testing to begin. As it is an alpha, you can expect bugs and inconsistent performance issues, with the system requirements allegedly being that you need a quad-core CPU, 6 GB RAM, at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX-680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 with 2 GB RAM, and 64-bit versions of either Windows 7 or 8. Star Wars Battlefront is due for release on 17th November 2015, but in the mean time here is 5 minutes of gameplay footage from the game: View full article

  4. Star Wars: Uprising, due later this year, will show us the state of the galaxy in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi. Developed by Kabam, Star Wars: Uprising is a new mobile game set after the events of the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi, where we finally saw the victory of the Rebel Alliance and the death of the Emperor. This new game which forms part of the official Star Wars canon storyline will give a glimpse of the aftermath of those events. We already know that things aren't going to be rosy in that galaxy far far away by the time The Force Awakens rolls around, but what we don't know is how the Rebel victory fell short of achieving it's goal to restore the Republic. The trailer for Uprising suggests that new enemies are rising to fill the power vacuum left by the Emperor, and you'll get the chance to take them on. Star Wars: Uprising is scheduled to release later this year for Android and iOS, with beta testing due this summer. Don't forget to check out the official Star Wars: Uprising site and sign up for updates. View full article

    Visceral Games drops Han Solo hints

    It has long been known that Visceral Games, a subsidiary of Electronic Arts has been working on a Star Wars project, but up until now nothing has been mentioned about what type of game they are developing. Visceral are perhaps most well known for their science fiction survival horror series Dead Space, and more recently Battlefield Hardline; a game that unlike previous other Battlefield games revolves around crime and policing rather than warfare. Staff members from the studio took to Twitter to drop hints about the upcoming game, including Scott Warner, the game's director, who posted a pirate-like flag with a stormtrooper helmet and crossbones accompanied by the words "It's better to be a pirate than to join the navy." Other hints dropped by staff members include more pirate references and a new decoration for their office in the form of a life-size statue of Han Solo frozen in carbonite.
