E3 2018: Electronic Arts Gave More Details On Anthem And Battlefield V

TODO alt text

New characters including General Grevious, Obiwan, Count Doku, and Anakin Skywalker are releasing along with a new Starfighter mode and new level. It also combines four player co-op features with conversations that have world-altering choices.

In other Star Wars news, Respawn came on stage to announce their next game. The game will allow players to personalize their Javelins. Star Wars fans can look forward to a new game plus some more content for Star Wars: Battlefront II. Sea of Solitude launches early 2019 for Xbox One and Playstation 4.

The first Unravel is actually a genuinely charming little game and well worth checking out.

This year's E3 will be EA's chance to reinvigorate enthusiasm in their household franchises, as well as prove to gamers that their upcoming games will be worth purchasing despite their many past mistakes.

The trailer, which showcases a lot of Game Engine footage, is available here.

The player is a person known as a Freelancer, someone who goes out into the world and fights the enemies of humanity. It looks handsome and the art style is reminiscent of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

The decision to move away from "pay-for-power" advantages comes with a backstory for the publisher, which was highly criticized after revealing the extent of microtransactions in "Star Wars: Battlefront II" previous year. Movement enhancements, moveable defense emplacements, character customisation and the news that destructibility is making a big return are all key talking points. In game purchases will be limited to aesthetic upgrades.

Inspired by the hugely popular PUBG and Fortnite, Battlefield 5 will also be having its very own Battle Royale style mode. Up to four players band together to take on whatever perils you discover as a heroic team.

"Regardless of how it's being portrayed, we're not look at that as a delay, we've chosen to launch Anthem in [the fourth quarter]". The Javelins change up the gameplay in various ways with a whole host of different abilities for each one. There will also be plenty of customization options for the Javelin exosuits. During today's presentation, BioWare stressed that it wants to nail what people love about single-player games, specifically the story, with the fun of multiplayer.

The game's release date was also confirmed, but it's a while away: February 22 next year.
