All the most exciting reveals from EA at E3 2016.
It’s time, Battlefield fans! From the new Battlefield 1, to Titanfall 2 by way of FIFA 17 and Zac Efron, here are all of the most exciting EA reveals from the huge EA PLAY LA event to coincide with the biggest games event of the year, the massive E3 expo in LA.
Famously where EA make all their new announcements, game reveals and more for 2016 and beyond, this hot delivery of fresh E3 news should keep fans very happy.
Here are all the highights you need to know from EA's 2016 press conference, updated live as they happen.
The Titanfall sequel this time around will have a full offline single player campaign! We're promised it will delve "deeper into the Titanfall universe, exploring the unique bond between pilot and Titan".
Meanwhile, multiplayer will feature six new titans, explanded pilot gameplay, and we're told gameplay will be SUPER SMOOTH. Oof.
If that's not exciting enough, you'll be able to play it early with the mutliplay technical test available beforehand – which you can sign up now for on the Titanfall site.
Mass Effect Andromeda
In the next Mass Effect game, you are part of an ambitious expedition – you’re travelling to the Andromeda galaxy to find mankind a new home. ‘This is a galaxy where you are the alien’ says Bioware general manager, Aaron Flynn.
This time, they tell us, the theme is all about HOW FAR YOU WILL GO. A behind the scenes look shown off at the show gave us a look at Andromeda and the new alien life and civilisations we’ll face when the game lands.
FIFA 17: The Journey is a completely new take on the series. This is a revolutionary year for FIFA, we’re told. And we definitely saw something different to what we’ve ever seen before.
For the first time ever, we’re getting a STORY campaign in FIFA. You play as Alex Hunter in his journey to football superstardom who also stars along real life football managers including Jose Mourinho – who turned up to the EA Play event to reveal his character personally.
Lead character Alex Hunter was there too to give us a VERY IMPASSIONED speech about how playing Fifa is the ‘the start of my journey’, from the EA Play London event.
The speech was a bit hammy. But the game is a completely fresh take on Fifa, since its first video game was released back in 1993.
Inspired by the super cute Yarny in Unravel last year, the new EA Originals program will partner with smaller developers to bring totally new and creative games to the whole world. Fe, the first revealed looks dreamy. You get wrapped up in a gorgeous natural landscape, playing as an emo looking cub with no knowledge of how you got there. A game without words, animals in the forest communicate through music instead.
Star Wars - THIRD PERSON Action Advenutre Game
A look behind the scenes from the people who brought us Star Wars Battlefront teased a new third person Star Wars action adventure game, set in a new Star Wars era. Eeeeep.
We just got our first in-depth look at the gameplay of the new World War 1 edition to the series - and were promised ‘the risks were worth it’. Now, you’ll be able to take control of ‘utimate vehicles’ like massive airships, tanks and even horses on the, erm, battlefield. It looks incredible.
Zac Efron and Jamie Foxx
They were taking part in an epic star-studded 32 v 32 match in the new game. The big question is, who will be horse riding?
