Star Wars Battlefront

Star Wars Battlefront beta is live

Just a friendly reminder that, as promised, the Star Wars Battlefront open multiplayer beta test is now live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. While some players have had access for a couple days now, it just opened up wide for everyone else yesterday. Grab the launcher from the Xbox Games Store or PlayStation Store, or from EA's Origin portal on PC.

The beta includes the 40-player Walker Assault on Hoth battle that we've seen time and again in demo videos (like the one above), as well as the new Drop Zone mode and a Tatooine survival mission. The beta runs through 12 October on all platforms, so get in on it while you can!

Enhanced Harry Potter on iBooks

Harry Potter on iBooks

Planning to revisit the boy wizard's (written) adventures? Good news: all seven of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books have been re-released to Apple's iBooks in enhanced versions, now featuring annotations from the author and new, animated artwork within. They're available within iBooks for both iOS and Mac.
