The cover for the upcoming tie-in novel to Star Wars Battlefront has been revealed. Called Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company, the novel centers on a group of soldiers fighting in the trenches during the galactic war.
"When orders come down for the Rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation—and gives the Alliance’s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence."
The book is written by author Alexander Freed and will be released on November 3. Below is the cover image.
Today at PAX, Gearbox has revealed that you can sign up to help test Battleborn, starting now.
If you head on over to the Battleborn closed technical test website, you can sign up to participate as long as you have a Gearbox Shift account. You're not guaranteed a spot, however, as participants will be selected based on platform preference, location, availability, and other factors.
Gearbox President Randy Pitchford said those who register before October 15 will be "first in line."
Selected players will help test "various aspects of the game and online infrastructure in an ever-expanding series of closed technical tests."
In the span of a 15-minute demo, Rise of the Tomb Raider made me feel the sheer sense of wonder, excitement, and terror of one of the classic Indiana Jones movies (sorry, Shia) better than nearly any game has. I survived a near-death experience (ok…more like a dozen of them), studied ancient murals in hopes of learning a foreign language, got horribly spooked by skeletons and scorpions, and escaped a temple that was simultaneously crumbling as well as flooding.
In short, this Lara Croft is every bit as amazing as Indy ever was.
My hands-on time with Rise began in the sun-baked mountains of Syria. After my driver turned on me, a thing that happened to poor Indy on more than one occasion, I climbed a cliff-side looking for a way inside a long-forgotten tomb. The gorgeous lighting, dynamic wind, and incredible particle effects all immediately worked in tandem to deliver one of the best-looking video game demos I’ve ever played.
Kojima truly has a variety of friends.
The game designer took to Twitter today to show off images of him hanging out with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and the astromech droid BB-8.
"JJ, who has been supporting the project for a long time, has also been told that MGS V is complete," he said, pictured in a photo with J.J. and a copy of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Backers of the overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign for Mighty No. 9 will soon have the opportunity to try the game firsthand.
During a PAX Prime panel today, Keiji Inafune announced backers will be receiving codes for an official Mighty No. 9 demo starting September 15. The demo itself will be three stages long and is for PC only.
Eurogamer reports these stages will be different from anything some of the larger backers have played before, and backers will also be given a free copy of Mighty Gunvolt on PC via Steam.
