Update: Graham here! EA’s press conference is over and E3 2018 is just beginning. The news is:
Battlefield V is getting a battle royale mode.
Respawn’s Star Wars game is called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Unravel 2 was announced and is out now.
EA Original’s are also publishing Sea of Solitude.
Madden NFL 19 is actually coming to PC.
BioWare’s Anthem will release on February 22nd 2019.
FIFA 19 will have the Champions League license.
Origin Access Premier is a fancier version of EA’s game pass.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 will visit the Clone Wars.
Back to Alice…
Right then! Let’s get on with it. Electronic Arts are hosting the first announce-o-trailer-a-rama around the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year, showing off (and presumably announcing?) their lineup of upcoming games. Their event starts at 7pm UK time (that’s 11am Pacific) and you can watch it livestreamed right here, in this very post.
What should we expect to see? BioWare’s Anthem, DICE’s Battlefield V, a mysterious something from Titanfall developers Respawn, sports, perhaps Unravel 2, probably more Star Wars Battlefront 2 content updates, maybe Motive’s open-world action game, potentially Dragon Age 4, and, if there’s been a miraculous breakthrough in its troubled development, possibly even whatever became of Visceral’s Star Wars game.
Anyway! Here’s the livestream on YouTube, though it’s also on Twitch if you’d prefer.
We’ll also be covering the day’s announcements separately, of course.
We have a few hopes for what we’d like to see at E3 this year, and do see our list of E3 presentations for what other publishers are up to. Our boy Brendy is on the ground in Los Angeles to see things with his actual real eyes too.
Check out our E3 2018 tag for more announcements, trailers, and goodness knows what else.
