It seems that EA’s licensing deal with Disney for the Star Wars- franchise will last for the next ten years and covers the whole universe, including the spin- offs.
“It’s a big effort for us, and I don’t think there’s a human being in the world who hasn’t heard of the Star Wars movie coming. And so, [it’s a] great opportunity,” EA CFO Blakr Jorgensen told attendees at the UBS Global Technology Conference in San Francisco, as reported by Gamespot.
“We struck a licensing deal with Disney a few years back that’s almost ten years in length. The game that comes out tomorrow, Star Wars Battlefront, is a traditional first-person style shooter game. Our goal is to make future Battlefront games as well as other style games around the Star Wars franchise, both on mobile as well as console and PC. It’s a huge opportunity for us.”
Star Wars: Battlefront is out today for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
This week, Microsoft has a good deal for potential Xbox One buyers. You can buy a console and get a free game. This offer includes even purchasing of console bundles.
This applies at a variety of retailers across the United States. This offer is good at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and the Microsoft Store and is available untill November 21.
The promotion seems to come at a perfect time for gamers. High-profile games like Halo 5: Guardians, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Fallout 4 have all launched in the past few weeks. On Tuesday, EA will release another of the year’s huge games: Star Wars Battlefront.
I have seen one NPC fight in Fallout 4 and today I have seen this one: 1000 Deathclaws against 100 Brotherhood Of Steel. Enjoy!
Telltale’s Game of Thrones concludes tomorrow- November 17.

Telltale is also bringing the series to retail with boxed copies releasing tomorrow for current and last gen consoles for $29.99. These retail versions, along with a boxed PC edition, hits Europe on November 20.
“In just the first three days, the game managed to sell almost 2 million, 1.87 to be exact, copies on digital platforms. PC was the leading platform in this regard with 1.2 million sales from Steam, the rest came from Sony’s PlayStation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Marketplace.
Bethesda Softworks president Vlatko Andonov said:
“We’re extremely proud of Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios, and his experienced team of developers for their talent and dedication in creating this extraordinary game. Fallout 4 is a masterpiece in game development and storytelling, providing fans hundreds of hours of fun as they explore and are challenged by this fascinating, beautifully crafted world.”
Digital Foundry has spent some time with the final game of the PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront, and says that the game has improved since the beta
“What we have here is basically a very stable 60fps. It’s not perfect – there are duplicates popping up here and there in select situations – but the overall level of performance is remarkably stable here, a far cry from Battlefield 4,” the site said.
“DICE has achieved a level of performance on par with the likes of Metal Gear Solid 5 and Halo 5.”
The report is based on 30 players battles, full 40- players battles are yet to be tested.
Star Wars: Battlefront will launch on November 17 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
