    Everything EA Brought to E3 2018

    As usual, Electronic Arts got the jump on everyone this year with a press conference held a full day before any of the other major companies. The presentation itself held very few surprises. As expected, we were shown new footage of Battlefield V in action, given more information about this year's upcoming FIFA title, and were finally given a more in-depth look at Anthem, Bioware's newest sci-fi adventure. Less expected were the handful of joyous indie games that felt like a welcome breath of fresh air and the revival of the Command & Conquer franchise. Battlefield V kicked things off with explosive gameplay taken from the title's multiplayer mode. The emphasis this time seems to be giving players more mobility options with plenty of sliding and angled shots. Battlefield V players will be able to blow massive holes in fortifications and buildings with blasting weapons like rockets or grenades to open new routes. Alternatively, Battlefield V presents piloting tanks straight through structures as a viable strategy. The trailer depicts players being able to move large anti-aircraft guns and canon emplacements around by hitching them to trucks, which hints at a battlefield that might be more in motion than ever before. In a pleasant surprise, Vince Zampella, co-founder of Respawn Entertainment and co-creator of the Call of Duty franchise, took a minute on camera to announce that his company was in the process of creating a new Star Wars game called "Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order." Aside from a few details, not much more is known about the mysterious announcement, not even a teaser or a trailer. FIFA 19 made its predictable appearance. It will have some minor improvements over the previous entry in the series, notably tweaks to the Active Touch system will give players more control over the ball then ever before. The biggest addition, though, has to be the UEFA Champion's League which will be integrated across the entire game, including the returning story mode. Of course, EA took time in its press conference to talk about its upcoming Origin Access Premier service. Premier will allow players to access upcoming EA games on PC days before they're commercially available to anyone else. Star Wars Battlefront 2 also made an appearance. Flying in the face of predictions that the company would be abandoning support for the multiplayer shooter, EA announced that the Clone Wars would be coming to Battlefront 2 sometime after the Solo movie tie-in content launches. Players will finally be able to play as Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grevious, and a host of other heroes and villains from the prequel films. One of the more surprising reveals of the conference was the abrupt reveal that Unravel Two both existed and was currently available. The physics-based platformer supports co-op play with two Yarneys as they journey together sharing the same spark. It looks as adorable, if not more so, than the first game. By far the best indie showing of EA's conference was Sea of Solitude. This adventure game combines The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker with the sensibilities of Hayao Miyazaki to create something special. From Studio Jo-Mei comes the tale of Kay, a young girl in a flooded world of people who have been turned into monsters. It's a symptom of a curse that Kay herself is slowly succumbing to, as well. Players join her on a journey to uncover the cause of the curse and what, if anything, can lift it. Another surprise came in the form of a resurrection of sorts. Command & Conquer has been an RTS series long dormant, but EA hopes to change that. Unfortunately, they have decided to bring it back as a mobile strategy title that condenses the RTS genre into a short, competitive experience a la Clash Royale. It even has a snazzy trailer with Yuri from Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 in it! Anthem delivered the moment for which most people viewing the press conference were waiting. The Iron Man-like suits in action against the backdrop of a mysterious, unfamiliar world unfinished by the gods brought the excitement. It's far outside of Bioware's wheelhouse, but the results of their efforts are undeniably impressive. Bioware aims to straddle the line between a shared online world with a strong narrative component that exists in the single-player hub area that changes with player decisions. Overall, EA's press conference stood as a middling showing. We didn't see much that was new, but even the familiar games on display had interesting aspects designed to get certain segments of the gaming population excited. There was a bit in there for everyone, sports fans, indie aficionados, twitch shooters, and nerdy nerds. Nothing that was completely mind-blowing, but a pleasantly acceptable series of titles ranging from interesting to dull. You can watch the full press conference below. What did you think? Let us know in the comments. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. Anthem's lead designers, including Bioware General Manager Casey Hudson, took the stage to dissect Anthem. On top of showing off more of the gameplay, the studio revealed the game's early 2019 release date. Bioware reinforced the "living" element of the game's shared open world. The world constantly changes, and events such as dramatic weather storms occur at the same time for all players. Despite the multiplayer premise, Bioware stressed that delivering a rich narrative is the primary focus. To achieve this vision, safe havens across the world of Anthem will serve as a kind of instanced hub where the decisions players make cause changes and growth unique to each player's game. On the subject of story, Anthem take place on a world left unfinished by the gods that shaped it. For unknown reasons, the gods abandoned powerful, world changing tools, some still active, leaving them scattered across the planet. These godly objects and their functions cause discord in the force called the Anthem of Creation. Since the world is incomplete and in dissonance, it has fallen victim to an array of violent storms and is inhabited by monsters. Thus, Freelancers, the pilots behind the Iron Man-esque suits, called Javelins, wear their armor to survive the harsh environment. Javelin's are also a necessity for battling malevolent forces that seek to weaponize the forces shaping the world. These were only hinted at briefly during EA's presentation, but we know they're called The Dominion. The conflict of the story seems to be based on the forces of The Dominion having discovered a way to weaponize the Anthem of Creation. Which... seems bad? We'll have to wait to find out more! Javelins come in four classes. Rangers, Colossus, Interceptor, and Storm. Each have their own special traits and players aren't tied to a single class. Depending on the situation, Anthem allows players to choose the best suit for the job. This also allows flexible strategy in deciding squad make-ups. Javelins can be customized with various colors and patterns, letting player create a look that suits them or their squad. Cosmetic items will be for sale (presumably costing real money), but Anthem contains no loot boxes and players won't be "able to purchase power" according to Bioware. Up to four players can taken on Anthem cooperatively, but the game can be experienced entirely solo. However, Bioware warns that Anthem's dangers become tougher for those who face them alone. Pre-orders are now open. Players who jump in early receive a VIP demo access and an in-game Founders Banner. Pre-ordering the standard version unlocks a legendary weapon the Legion of Dawn armor for the Ranger Javelin. Those that spring for the Legion of Dawn Edition receive the titular armor packs, a gear attachment for the Ranger, and digital soundtrack among other extras. Look for Anthem on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin. View full article

  5. BioWare announced a partnership with the Edmonton Corn Maze yesterday to create a labyrinth themed around the game developer and its upcoming action-RPG Anthem. The maze features the BioWare logo and a figure from the game plowed into a 17-acre field, and it is currently open to the public. The RPG developer had a bit of fun with the announcement. Anthem's director, Jon Warner, put out a statement that reads, "It’s a world where you can become lost with your friends, sort of like getting lost in this maze. I mean, what better way to celebrate the growth of our new game than through corn, which also grows? [...] This has been an a-MAZE-ing opportunity for us." The company also released a trailer for the maize -erm- maze that's pretty spectacular. The Edmonton Corn Maze is open from July 24-October 24. Fans of BioWare and/or corn mazes can visit when the maze is open Tuesday-Friday from 10am-8pm and on Sundays from 1pm-5pm. View full article

    BioWare Creates Anthem-Themed Corn Maze

  7. Bioware joined Microsoft at their E3 presentation for the first extensive showing of their new franchise "Anthem." Players operate as "freelancers" in a science fiction universe, living within the walls of Fort Tarsis. Freelancers are the only people brave and capable enough of leaving the fortress, donning robotic power suits with their own unique loadouts and capabilities. The demo began with a character begging the player to rescue a group of non-freelancers who took a job offer outside the walls. After donning the ranger power armor (a mid-range class with all-around effectiveness), the player is joined by a friend with a "colossus" class suit with heavy attack power. It's unclear if Anthem is completely open world, but once outside of Fort Tarsis, the player seems to be able to move about in any direction through a lush jungle filled with wildlife both large and small. After fleeing a high level creature, the two players split up to take on a small group of scavenger enemies. The player character jets down beneath the surface of a river to breach and surprise the enemy at close range. Anthem will definitely be attempting its own system of rewarding players with loot. After ambushing a large group of enemies and taking them out with a volley of heat-seeking mortar and missile fire, the player picks up a legendary volt rife called "Jarra's Wrath." It's certainly as nonsensical in naming its items as Destiny. Anthem also features weather events that ostensibly change how you tackle objectives, including Shaper Storms. Before the demo concludes, the player character is able to invite at least two more friends to their squad for backup, before flying into a mysterious orb shrouded by the storm. Destiny 2 will have at least a little while to bulk up its defense, though, since Anthem is currently scheduled for a Fall 2018 release. What did you folks think of the demo? Does Anthem's seemingly robust gameplay tickle that shooter itch more than Destiny for you? What do you make of the jungle environment, and do you think Bioware will bring more RPG elements into the mix? Let us know in the comments. View full article
