Biggest announcements from EA at E3 ft. Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Anthem and more

Anthem E3 2018 Trailer and Game Details

One of EA's most anticipated games got its fair share of time in the spotlight today during its EA Play conference, with the publisher dedicating nearly 20 minutes to a deep-dive into the mechanics and gameplay of Anthem. There was "more of the same" sports news, nebulous promises of a cloud gaming revolution, a freakish Star Wars game reveal that you could have missed, and.basically just some good footage of Anthem, which may or may not have alienated a lot of its audience by confirming microtransactions when it had the chance to be one of the only looter shooters without them.

Next, EA came out and admitted to the rocky launch of Star Wars: Battlefront II.

New Battlefield V gameplay videos, posted by YouTube channel hosts in attendance, showed more hard gameplay footage from its multiplayer mode, as opposed to last month's cinematic, perspective-shifting reveal trailer.

Being able to customize the character the way you want, it's somewhat a bummer that it won't include loot boxes so players could get their favorite cosmetics if any exist in the game. There is no PvP mode and you can play the entire game by yourself, which should please those who get annoyed by Destiny's locked off content. Mark Darrah also seemed to hint that a public beta will occur.

Anthem will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Instead, it simply confirmed that the game would let players fight as a Jedi in events between episodes III and IV of the film series.

The gameplay reveal focused largely on full jetpack control, which allows the game's heroes (in suits called "Javelins") to fly up, over, and all around giant worlds and combat arenas, along with bombastic, third-person combat against giant, handsomely rendered beasts.

Casey Hudson, the General Manager of Bioware, described Anthem as a "dynamic" open world game that's different from the usual singleplayer/multiplayer games. Up to four players band together to take on whatever perils you discover as a heroic team.

Bioware's Anthem will be released-if there are no more delays-on February 22, 2019.

EA's Unravel Two: The new squeal to the Unravel game had caught all EA fans off guard and very much excited for the release.

Finally we get a proper look at Anthem, starting with a fist pumping trailer played to a remix of Uprising by Muse. Mind you, being an always-online co-op game with a heavy emphasis on shooting, Anthem doesn't sound like the usual BioWare game. The game's Pre-Alpha is available for Android devices now, with a full release date not mentioned at this time.

This will most certainly change the Alex Hunter story mode along with other career modes in the game.

So that is it for the first briefing of E3 2018 - a short if solid showing from EA.

Anthem Legions of Dawn Edition are preorderable for PS4 and Xbox One.

But if that is the case, this will inevitably lead to a fractured player base, split between those that can afford to enjoy each new chunk of story as and when they drop, and those that can't.
