DICE Details The Free Companion App And Mobile Base Command Game

In what is very nearly a requirement for all modern AAA games, Star Wars Battlefront is getting a free companion app.

The app is coming to iOS and Android platforms before the game launches on November 17, and a version of it will be available at StarWarsBattlefront.com during the beta. The app will let you look closer at your assorted stats, customize your loadout, connect with your team, and get news – pretty much the standard companion app.

Alongside it, also comes Base Command. It's a tactical turn-based card game that lets you earn credits for Star Wars Battlefront. Base Command will not have microtransactions, DICE is quick to point out, and you will never lose any of your cards.

You Can Begin Downloading Your Compatible Rock Band 4 DLC Tracks Immediately

It's not a particularly simple process, but if you want to get a head-start on grabbing your compatible DLC ahead of Tuesday's release of Rock Band 4, you can start right now.

Harmonix has detailed instructions on how to start the DLC download process on its blog. It involves searching the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 online store for Rock Band 4 and downloading each track individually. If you've got a lot of songs to download, it's going to take awhile.

Not every single downloadable track will be available on Rock Band 4's release date, but an impressive 1700 tracks are available. Rock Band Network tracks will not be available and neither will export tracks from discs, but Harmonix says compatibility for that music is in the works.

A Legend Of Zelda Princess Gets A Voice In The Latest Tri-Force Heroes Trailer

A Legend Of Zelda Princess Gets A Voice In The Latest Tri-Force Heroes Trailer

You won't be saving Princess Zelda in Tri-Force Heroes, but you will be saving a princess, and she has a lot to say in the game's latest trailer.

The trailer, which is more of an extended tutorial about how the game plays, isn't too different than a version that released earlier this week. You will learn how the game plays and get a setup for the story, but this time you receive narration directly from Princess Styla. She is in need of Link's rescue because she has lost her style and is being forced to wear a one-piece leotard. She doesn't want you to worry, though. That's her job.

It's unlikely she will speak in the final game, but with this video, Nintendo has ostensibly given a Zelda character a full voice.

Zangief's Iron Muscle V-Skill appears to render him temporarily invulnerable to damage. His devastating Cyclone Lariet V-Trigger traps those unlucky enough to be caught in its vortex in a brutal whirlwind of strikes.

Meet Minecraft: Story Mode’s Greatest Champions, The Order Of The Stone

about X hours ago from

Once upon a time, the Order of the Stone ventured into darkness to defeat the legendary Ender Dragon. The Warrior, the Griefer, the Redstone Engineer, and the Architect set an example for all the cube-headed people in the land.

Minecraft: Story Mode takes place years after that event, with the player character “Jesse” and his (or her) friends visiting EnderCon, a fan convention. As with all stories that start with a dragon, bad stuff happens and Jesse and his pals set off on a quest to set things right. Thankfully, it’s also pretty humorous.

about X hours ago from

After successfully integrating Kevin Spacey into last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Activision is returning to Hollywood. This year’s installment features Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU) as the villain for Black Ops III.

The video also hints that the neural uplink implanted in each of the soldiers featured in the story is the cause of some problems. Whether inadvertent corruption or intentional tampering, the enemy will emerge from outside and within.

Launch Trailer Showcases Fusion Of Classic Game Design And Classic Animation

Pencil Test Studio's claymation point-and-click adventure title Armikrog is available now. The launch trailer showcases the title's intriguing blend of stop-motion animation and classic adventure gameplay.

Based on characters created by Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel, the Kickstarter-funded title stars Tommynaut, a space explorer, and his blind talking dog Beak-Beak. The pair must escape the fortress Armikrog after crash-landing on an alien planet.

The game's most unique element is that its world and models are constructed from actual clay and animated using traditional puppet fabrication techniques. Bringing the cast to life are the vocal talents of Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and The Brain), and Michael J. Nelson (Mystery Science 3000)
