EA may not be most gamers’ favorite video game publisher, but they still publish a huge collection of important games, from Madden and FIFA to Battlefield and Anthem. Oh yeah, and they also own the license to publish games for a little franchise called Star Wars. EA had a lot to talk about this year, but here are the five most important announcements:
Battle Royale modes seem to be tacked onto every game these days, and Battlefield V is joining the trend popularized by Fortnite and PUBG with a Battle Royale mode of its own.
FIFA 19 is coming, but if you’re new to the franchise, you have the opportunity to download and play FIFA 18 in a Free Trial mode for free. This includes the entire game, and is not just a truncated demo.
Details were very scarce for this game, which is hopefully a single player experience. You play as a Jedi during/after Order 66 — but unfortunately, we won’t be able to play this one until holiday season 2019.
Continuing on the prequel theme, EA talked about Battlefront II‘s newest additions, which are themed around the Clone Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and General Grievous will be playable characters, and you’ll be able to explore the planet Geonosis.
The adorable platformer sequel has a surprise release date: RIGHT NOW!
What did you think of EA’s showing at E3 this year? Are you excited? Disappointed? Somewhere in between?
