EA had already announced its most important titles, such as Battlefield V before its presentation at E3. But it appeared with a series of smaller ads, including a new independent game being released today, as well as some images of the anticipated game from BioWare Anthem . And the show was peppered with promises that EA will not repeat the debacle of the booty of Battlefront II last year . It was a discreet way to start a week of great revelations, but not disappointing.
Here is the most exciting part of the show.
After being announced last year, Mass Effect The new studio game BioWare Anthem had a great revelation in 2018. It is a role-playing game in a hostile world, where players wear armor suits known as "javelins" to play cooperative missions. . EA did not disappoint with his revelation: he offered a release date, some more details and a few minutes of play. The images so far make it look like a combination of mech warfare, Destiny- massive multiplayer gaming style and the epic science fiction for which BioWare is known. Anthem will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 22, 2019.
This is not a big surprise, since it feels like each game is receiving a competitive multiplayer mode inspired by the massively popular PlayerUnknown & # 39; s Battlegrounds and Fortnite . But now we know that Battlefield V will allow you to fight to be the last player standing on a World War II battlefield. You know, like in real life. In any case, we got a new trailer with a bit of multiplayer gameplay and some details about the single-player game "War Stories".
The first Unravel stole our hearts with his adorable yarn protagonist Yarny, but sometimes frustrated us with his challenging platform and puzzle game. Now, it's about getting a sequel called Unravel 2 which is supposed to be more "friendly", "more challenging" and "more playful" than its predecessor. Among other changes, Unravel 2 will present two Yarny characters, which means that a player can control both, or two people can play cooperatively. Unravel 2 is not only announced today, but will be released immediately on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
EA chose the independent game Sea of Solitude some time ago , and has a new trailer in E3. One of the central themes of the game is that "when humans feel too lonely, they become monsters", and in this case, that is literally the difficult situation of the protagonist Kay, who must explore an almost deserted city to find other people like her. Sea of Solitude is shaping up as a little disturbing game when it will be released in early 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Titanfall developer Respawn hinted a new game of Star Wars before the show, and now we know that it is called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order . We do not know much more than that, unfortunately. The single-player history game is scheduled for release during the holiday season in 2019; is established after Revenge of the Sith when the Jedi are being hunted; and it has a dark and gritty feel. Oh, and you can use a lightsaber.
Meanwhile, Battlefront II is expanding with material from the Clone Wars, including the playable versions of Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, General Grievous and Obi-Wan Kenobi. . We do not know when it will come out, but there is an expansion Only that will arrive on June 12, which will include new environments in Kessel and a new starfighter mode, among other things.
