Electronic Arts E3 Conference!


So E3 Started and EA kicked it off...

They didn't really cover a whole lot, but here are some of the highlights!

1.  FIFA 19, Madden 19, & NBA Live 19 are all thing again.  Game play looks amazing, but this is sort of EA's niche.  I don't personally play the sports games, but if you do, they are beautiful and very real looking.

2.  Battlefield V is coming.  And it is so awesome!

3.  The Indy Games are incredibly cool!  Unravel came out in February 2016, and Coldwood Interactive brought us Unravel Two and it is out and ready to play!  It looks so good.

Also there is a little company called Jo-Mei Games that showed off their beautiful game as well, Sea of Solitude aka SOS.

4.  A few odds and ends were also in this conference.  For instance, a very awkward mini interview with Vince Zampella from Respawn Entertainment about the newest Star Wars game called Star Wars:  Jedi Fallen Order.  There was no game play, just talking about how it is a thing that is happening and that it wouldn't be out until Quarter 4 2019.  So there's that.

Also, there was the mobile game Command & Conquer Rivals

5.  Orgin Access Premier
This is really kind of cool in that this is a premium version of the already existing Orgin Access, but with the new releases added.  They didn't give a price point yet, but the concept sounds pretty sweet...

6.  The last and to be honest the coolest thing that EA showed at this conference was the new game ANTHEM.  I personally cannot wait to get my hands on this and try out the Interceptor character.  There are 4 characters you can choose from and then you can customize the hell out of them.  Plus I really loved that they said there will be no loot boxes in this game.  Check out the amazing trailer below!

And the game play video, although this seems really edited.
