In the latest breaking news involving EA, the company failed to dispel strong rumours from reputable sources, rumours which proclaimed the cancellation of the promised, long awaited and much anticipated, future release of the next single player title meant to continue the massively popular Star Wars saga. Initially developed under the codename Ragtag which aimed at creating a linear gameplay adventure. However, a mid-2017 reimagining refocused the teams to instead develop an open world environment re-focused on delivering a broader player experience. Ironically this mid-2017 reimagining seemingly is possibly also the reason for the project’s death, since developing “a broader experience” would apparently have required too long a build period, driving costs up. The most common fan response to that would be somewhere along the lines of “come-on EA, Bethesda managed to create just such a series of open world games with each episode of The Elder Scrolls series and…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: C-3PO, Finn, and Phase 3 of the Sith Raid

There is currently a bug in phase 3 of the Sith Raid with Finn and C-3PO. The developers are gonna fix it next year when they figure out whether Finn lead or Traya tenacity is the thing to change:It’s come to our attention that there is an unintended strategy/interaction involving Finn(Leader – Zeta), C-3PO, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and BB-8 that allows players to auto Phase 3 of the Sith Triumvirate (Heroic).
