EA press conference | E3 2018
E3 is finally here.
After many months of rumors, teasers, reveals, and leaks, the world's biggest game show has arrived once again to showcase the best games coming out over the next few months.
Electronic Arts opened the show a day before everyone else with their well-known EA Play event in Hollywood. The company showed off Anthem, Battlefield V, and a slew of sports titles to the applauding public.
If you couldn't watch the show, don't worry—we've got you covered. You can find all of the major announcements for every title shown off at EA Play 2018 down below to get you up to speed for tomorrow's Microsoft and Bethesda press conferences.
EA started the show by revealing some of the new features in Battlefield V, including new gameplay and customization options. The single player story was also unveiled, showing off the untold stories of heroism during DICE's version of World War II. EA confirmed a Battle Royale mode was coming to the game too, but didn't show off the mode at the event.
The Champions League will be coming to FIFA 19 after the tournament ended its lengthy association with Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer series, giving fans more competition to play in-game or in career mode. The game will also be released on Sept. 28.
Origen Access Premier
EA announced Origin Access Premier, a new PC subscription service that will grant you access to games as they're released. The service is a lot like Xbox Game Pass and will let fans play every game on Origen Access.
Jedi Fallen Order
The next Star Wars game was teased by Respawn at the event and is set between Star Wars Episodes III and IV in the movie saga. It's expected to be a dark, gritty game that will be released in the holiday season of 2019.
Star Wars Battlefront 2
Clone Wars DLC is set to come to this Star Wars game in the next year. A Genesis level is inbound, alongside new characters and modes.
The sequel to the indie hit Unravel was revealed in the press conference—and it's coming out today. The game introduces co-operative elements and new features for fans to sink their teeth into.
Sea of Solitude
This game is set to come out in early 2019.
NBA Live 19 and Madden NFL 19
Command and Conquer Rivals
A new mobile game for the popular Command and Conquer series was shown off at EA's press conference, featuring competitive gameplay, which looked somewhat similar to Clash of Clans.
Anthem was the main focus of EA's press conference this year—the game was detailed in a large segment with some of the development team. Anthem will be split into two sections with players fighting together in a shared world before going into a single-player only experience in the main city. Two new classes were also shown off today: Interceptor and the Storm.
