Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Offline Co-Op Isn’t Available On PC

A new detail about Star Wars: Battlefront II has come to light regarding its offline co-op. Contrary to an earlier statement, offline co-op will be available on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4–but not PC.
According to Game Informer, an Xbox Wire post originally said offline co-op would only be supported on Xbox One. However, this statement has since been updated to say it is “exclusive to the console version,” which covers both Xbox One and PS4.
None of this is surprising. This is the same setup as 2015's Battlefront, with offline split-screen co-op only available on consoles.
Battlefront II launches on November 17. Unlike the first game, the sequel has a campaign, which puts you into the boots of an Imperial soldier, Iden Versio. Of course, multiplayer returns–and a number of significant changes and additions have been made. Content from “all eras” of Star Wars is represented.

Overwatch PC Patch Notes Cover Bug Fixes, Uprising PvE Exploit

The PC version of Overwatch received an update today that deals primarily with fixing various bugs and one somewhat significant exploit.
Overwatch's ongoing Uprising event features a PvE mode that rewards players with Loot Boxes for winning. Players discovered that it's possible to prevent enemies from spawning, thereby making victory an inevitability. Blizzard vowed recently to address the exploit.
With today's patch, this is no longer possible–at least through the existing means for doing so–meaning you'll have to actually fight all your way to the end in order to pick up the win. While this wasn't as serious as an exploit facing the competitive, PvP portion of the game, at least you'll no longer have to worry about facing pressure to take part in this when playing.
A fix that's perhaps more important is one that involves ties not being broken properly. The patch notes mention a fix for “an issue that could cause inaccurate results when breaking t..

At Star Wars Celebration, EA announced fantasy and sci-fi author Christie Golden's book will tell the story of Inferno Squad, an elite team of Imperial soldiers.
Inferno Squad and its commander Iden Versio are also the focus of Star Wars: Battlefront II's single-player campaign. As we saw in the full-length reveal trailer, she and her comrades seek to avenge the death of the Emperor following the destruction of the Death Star. While the video game takes place after the events of Return of the Jedi, the book takes place decades earlier, telling the story of how Inferno Squad came to be.
The book was first announced in February. “The Rebellion may have heroes like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker,” the publisher's description read, “but the Empire has Inferno Squad.” It goes on to desc..
