EA Vancouver’s Open-World Star Wars Game Canceled

Star Wars

EA Vancouver’s open-world Star Wars project has been canceled, thus tainting EA’s reputation even further.

Today’s heartbreaking news comes from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier and marks the second disappointing update for the unannounced game. Kotaku says the information comes from three sources close to the project’s development.

The EA Vancouver project was made up of the remains of what Visceral Games was able to muster up before its own shutdown. Not much is known of what the game would have become, but the rumors were stunning.

Job listings told of an expansive open-world as well as a strong single-player narrative component. Kotaku’s report also suggests that rumors are pointing toward EA Vancouver carrying the torch for its own Star Wars project.

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ Campaign Will Take Around Six Hours to Complete

ARMA 3

ARMA 3‘s new spin-off expansion will receive a sizable campaign, which is expected to take between four and six hours to complete.

Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, project lead of ‘Contact‘, provided some fresh details regarding the campaign length in an exclusive interview with OnlySP. He confirmed that the campaign will take around four to six hours to complete depending on player ability:

“The length is always hard to specify, because it, of course, depends on each individual player, and how much they explore the terrain beyond the core objectives. We’d estimate normal play sessions lasting between 4 and 6 hours.” He continued, “After that, there’s, of course, a cool box of new toys to tinker with, including the rest of the new Livonia terrain. We also hope community creators get inspired to build their own alien scenarios.”

van ‘t Land also revealed that players will take on the role of a “NATO drone operator” undergoing military training exercises in Livonia. During one of these seemingly routine training exercises, humanity encounters an alien species coming face-to-face with strange technology.

“A big part of the campaign is about uncovering its mystery and exploring what is going on, so we’ll leave most details for players to discover for themselves.” He added, “You will assume the role of a NATO drone operator, deployed to Livonia for military training exercises. Eventually, our alien visitors arrive at the Area of Operations, and from there on out you’re part of an improvised reconnaissance operation to investigate what’s going on.”

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is set to release on 25 July 2019 for PC. Our full interview with Bohemia Interactive about the expansion will be available in the coming days.
