The quote in the headline above is a direct snippet from the intro that EA's Peter Moore gave at his company's press conference last week at Gamescom. However, due to a few "misinterpretations", Moore has moved to clarify his comments, saying that this in no way means EA are ignoring offline gaming, nor are they looking to blanket apply F2P policies to all of their franchises.

Battlefield 4 Gets Two New Gamescom Trailers

Wow, even on the lower settings on YouTube, this game looks amazing. We've scavenged two trailers from EA's Gamescom presser for you. The first is the Paracel Storm multiplayer trailer which looks like the ultimate in modern updates to the Pacific Island battles of Battlefield 1943.

The second video shows off the game's varied 'Levolution' concepts, destroying the environment to your advantage, or just because it looks so damn cool. The competition for the years hottest FPS just got a lot tougher for Activision's Ghosts.

Peggle 2 Screenshots Give Us Extreme Fever

Peggle 2 is headed to Xbox One later this year (and eventually everything with a screen, we suspect), and we've finally got a look at the anticipated PopCap title. Spoiler alert: it's like Peggle, only exactly the same. And thus exactly what we want.

We'll update with a trailer as soon as possible, but for now, here are the latest screenshots.

FIFA 14: Gamescom Trailer, Demo & New Details

Make It So

When you absolutely need to make your trailer sounds epic, you can't go far wrong by hiring Patrick Stewart. Before I get derailed by another awkward TNG reference, let's get on message by confirming that FIFA 14 will let you pick from numerous legendary players on Xbox One, the full list of which has now been locked down. This year's iteration will also include the ability to play seasons mode cooperatively and include the Brazilian national team.

Better yet, an Xbox 360 and PS3 demo will release next month.

We've got the brand new Gamescom trailer and details after the jump. Engage. [No. - Ed]

Dragon Age: Inquisition Dev Diary Talks Being The Boss

Dragon Age III: Inquisition will cast players as The Inquisitor, giving us dominion over an influential organisation and its agent. As such, we'll have more responsibility and power than ever before, some of which is discussed in this new Gamescom developer diary from BioWare.

It's out next year, and we hope that BioWare's latest RPG will live up to the big decisions and freeform choice offered by the original game.

Gamescom 2013 Hub

We're halfway through August, and that can only mean one thing: Gamescom is just around the corner. There's a new dawn approaching for the video games console industry, and although E3 and the respective reveals of Sony and Microsoft earlier in the year have started the pre-game, next-gen carousel, the world's largest consumer show marks arguably the biggest stage thus far for the Xbox One, the PS4, and (lest we forget it exists) the Wii U.

Once again, we'll be getting to grips with some of the biggest upcoming titles of the next twelve months, interviewing some of the developers working hard behind closed doors, bombarding you with the latest news from the show and giving you our opinions on some of the hottest properties in the industry. Everything's shifting over the next year or so, and that makes this Gamescom a bit special. We're expecting a few surprises, with Sony and Microsoft no doubt still with one or two cards to play and new reveals to come, and everything will be easily navigable from this page.

Click here to check out the latest news and updates from Gamescom 2013!

Do also keep abreast of action as it happens via our main site Twitter stream for 140 character reports straight from both the show floor and clandestine closed-door meetings. Our Facebook page will have a steady stream of site links too.
