E3 2018: EA Play roundup

If you missed EA Play yesterday, why not carry on reading for a round of what went on below.

Battlefield V

The show started with Battlefield V, where we got a brief look at the multiplayer. It was also announced that there would be a Battle Royale mode, more on the single player will be revealed at the Xbox show tonight.

New Star Wars game?

Vince Zampella was in the crowd watching EA Play revealed some news about the Star Wars game Respawn were working on, it’s going to be called Jedi Fallen Order and has you play as a Jedi during the dark times when the Jedis were being hunted. In terms of the films, this of course places the game between III and IV.

Sea of Solitude is the next EA Originals title

The next EA Original title is to be called Sea of Solitude, produced by a small indie games studio, Jo-Mei Games from Berlin.

Releasing in early 2019, you play as a young women called Kay who is trapped in her turmoil of loneliness. Stuck in her spiral of madness, Kay turns into a monster – can she become human again?

FIFA 19 wants to be champion

It’s np great surprise that FIFA 19 will be heading our way on September, but it was confirmed that the game had secured the Champions League License.

FIFA 19 will feature the usual refinements we’d expect from the annual sports title, but this year EA have made a point of mentioning that they have taken feedback from the community and FIFA pros to create a better, more fluid, responsive and intuitive experience.

If you want to get your hands on FIFA 18 for a while, there is a free trial version available.

Unravel 2 revealed with immediate release

That’s right, the charming EA Originals title form last year got a sequel and is already available.

You can check out the first hour of the game in our video below.

More sports

Both NBA Live 19 and Madden 19 have been revealed, no surprises there either.

Anthem gets a release date

Anthem, EA’s answer to Destiny, will release on February 22 2019. To celebrate, a 4 minute video shows off so co-op exploration. Looks stunning.

Anthem gameplay, release date and details shown off

EA’s answer to Destiny, Anthem, shows us once again the Iron man-esque figures of Javelin exosuits and they look every bit as badass as when we first caught a glimpse of them last year. Muse thumps out during the cinematic trailer that is shown off at EA Play with a cool remix version of Uprising, while huge enemies fill the screen and high action fires out – this looks like it is something to get excited for.

Powered by Frostbite, the open world missions of Anthem are set in a shared living world where everyone playing sees the same thing, it’s only when you return to the base hub world that Anthem turns into a single player story. Anthem has also been built so that additional stories or events can be seamlessly slotted into the world in a way that they haven’t been able to do so before, which has come from community feedback where gamers want to continue playing in the worlds long after the main story has climaxed.

With four classes to choose from – Ranger, Colossus, Interceptor and storm – each freelancer (player) can pilot any of the four suits at any time. From the looks of the gameplay trailer, the world has a huge sense of scale. The sheer height of the environment is really impressive – ground, air and water – you can move and fight seamlessly within these battlegrounds, with underwater environments adding a great dynamic to the game.

Destiny inspired… maybe, but there is also a heavy does of Titanfall and I don’t mind saying that Anthem has jumped to being my most anticipated game. Anthem is also Xbox One X Enhanced and I am sorely tempted to finally upgrade just for this game – it looks stunning. I won’t have long to save though, Anthem releases February 22, 2019.

Anthem – Bioware / EA

Despite what people think of EA, sometimes they manage to pull something out of the bag that wows us all, I have that feeling about Anthem, we may end up disappointed but I’m happy to go along for the ride and see what happens…

Detroit: Become Human – Quantic Dream / SIE

It looks stunning ….. after all this is from the development studio that brought us Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls, which is enough to have me giddy at the knees

Monster Hunter World – Capcom / Capcom

I love monster movies, as I type this I have Godzilla on in the background, the 1998 one people seem to hate, but I cannot resist a monster movie. Games of this ilk don’t seem to find their way to me very often so this game has my interest.

Red Dead Redemption II – Rockstar Studios / Rockstar Games

… This will be epic! The only question is just how epic! The original was a masterpiece, as Rockstar are experts at creating a living, breathing world with an incredible story. Given the quality jump between GTA4 and GTA5 I find myself salivating at what RDR2 will bring. And the success of GTA Online will surely signal the beginning of Read Dead Online, with posses of Cowboys all causing mayhem in the Wild West. CAN. NOT. WAIT!
