Watch Our Extended Reactions to the EA Play Conference

Watch Our Extended Reactions to the EA Play Conference

Gaming expo E3 has kicked off in LA and it is one of the biggest game developers in the world, EA, who started things of with its keynote about what it plans to release this year. One of the most hyped games present at the event was Anthem, the new IP by Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare.

EA held a live reveal event for Battlefield V just over a fortnight ago.

At the end of EA's Play event ahead of the official E3 conferences, three members from BioWare took to the stage for a deep dive on the title - dropping a cinematic trailer alongside extended footage of gameplay. Thee will still be cosmetic DLC, but zero play to win. These exosuits, called Javelins, will be available in four different varieties suited to different playstyles, and users will be able to cycle between them at will.

Previously, EA confirmed Anthem's delay to 2019, stating it has nothing to do with the game's development, rather it wants Anthem to compete on its own terms in its own release window that doesn't clash with other games such as Battlefield V. The game features content from the two Star Wars movies: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. New but familiar characters will make an appearance for the first time and there will be new planets introduced into the game.

‘Gears of War’ is Coming to Mobile as ‘Gears Pop’
GoW5 is set for a 2019 Xbox , and Windows 10 platform release and the story mode picks from where the series last title left off. A non-gameplay teaser trailer suggests that Gears Pop! will not be targeting the hardcore gaming crowd.

The open-world shooter not only allows players to roam around freely. I don't know about you, but a Battlefield take on Battle Royale has me chomping at the bit! Unlike Destiny's Tower, a social space that always brims with players dancing around and/or ignoring each other, you'll have this little part of the world to yourself (aside from the NPCs, obviously).

If indeed a beta is being planned for Anthem, it's likely that it won't arrive until late 2018, or perhaps even early 2019.

Bioware revealed some more of the game's story as well as you will be playing one of the Freelancers, a group capable of wearing and operating the special Javelin exo-suits, which will be necessary to navigate this risky world.

So that is it for the first briefing of E3 2018 - a short if solid showing from EA. Along with the release window, the publisher also offered a few more details about the shared world that players will be living in. Although hub worlds are treated as single-player story affairs where you can talk to characters and explore as you would in any BioWare RPG - the key difference here is that these people will not go on missions with you. It will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
