What I’m Expecting From EA At E3

TITANFALL2Without doubt, Titanfall will be one of the major showings at EA’s E3 press conference. It’s the first time that PlayStation gamers will be exposed to Titanfall so I think there’s a huge possibility that we’ll see Sony’s conference in addition to EA Play. The first Titanfall didn’t have any campaign, so I suspect that we’ll see the campaign revealed in a huge way. EA have already come out and said that the campaign will be a huge part of the game with a lot of the new mechanics being prominent throughout both modes. We know that the game will be releasing 3 weeks of Battlefield 1 so EA will definitely be showing why every gamer needs both games in their life.[divider] [/divider]

MASS-EFFECT-ANDROMEDAI also expect Mass Effect: Andromeda to be at the press conference in a huge way. It’s easily EA’s most anticipated game and one that they’ve been speaking about for a long time. Some of the hype was lost when it was announced that the game would no longer release in 2016, so I suspect that EA will come out and bring the hype with a release date. I think that Bioware have had more than enough time to get this game done, so they’ll be at a point to be able to announce a release date and be confident in it. Obviously, I think we’ll see a good dose of gameplay/story to wet the appetite as well.[divider] [/divider]

BATTLEFIELD1Without doubt, the hype for Battlefield 1 has been insane. Probably beyond what EA thought was possible. With the negative reaction to Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare coming just a week before the reveal of Battlefield 1, EA have a real chance this year to compete with Call Of Duty in terms of scale. I suspect that it will be the absolute highlight of their show from both a multiple and single player perspective. We’ll see a bunch of new footage and we’ll also see the game highlighted separately in a multiplayer capacity.[divider] [/divider]

FIFA-17We now know that FIFA 17 will be revealed using Frostbite Engine. I don’t suspect that we’ll see a huge deal of difference when it comes to actual gameplay, as FIFA fans seem to be quite content with where the game is at the moment, but I think we’ll see a lot of smaller improvements in realism and animation. FIFA 17 is one of the most successful gaming franchises, so as much as it will bore most gamers, we will without doubt see a huge focus on the game at EA’s press conference. It’s important to remember that it’s games like FIFA that allow EA to develop and publish the smaller titles.[divider] [/divider]

VISCERAL-STAR-WARSI think it’s time that EA reveal what Visceral have been working on with the Star Wars franchise. We know that Amy Hennig is heading up the development and we know that it’ll most likely be a third person shooter. I think we will definitely get a teaser as well as a title. I suspect that it will release at the end of 2017 or even possibly at the beginning of 2018, but I think it’s time. It’s been a number of years since we saw the last Dead Space game, so i’m sure Visceral Games and EA are keen to start driving some hype behind this title. EA also announced that Respawn were working on a Star Wars game but I suspect that this will be held for Star Wars celebration.[divider] [/divider]

INDIE-GMAEI expect that we’ll see EA announce another indie game. These have been a real point of difference out of their conferences as of late. We saw Unravel unveiled a few years ago and know that EA are working on a second one, but I think it’s far too early to see Unravel 2. It’s quite possible that we’ll see something new for the Plants VS Zombies franchise? Potentially Plants VS Zombies 3? The series has been a huge stable so I don’t doubt that we’ll see something from the Popcap guys.[divider] [/divider]
