Mass Effect Andromeda
Arguably the most anticipated EA-published game currently in development, Bioware’s Mass Effect Andromeda was showcased in similarly explosive fashion as it was at E3 2015. EA confirmed that the game is running on DICE’s Frostbite engine, and that the game will offer “more freedom” than ever before.
DICE is taking the action to the World War I battlefield, showcasing Battlefield 1 for the first time since the game’s official reveal. The gameplay trailer reveals 64-player multiplayer action, and you can check out live gameplay action below.
EA turns Indie
EA’s new EA Originals program looks to focus on indie-developed and support small developers with big ideas. The first game under this program is Fe, which is being developed by Swedish developer Zoink. Check it out below.
We didn’t get much out of EA in regards to Star Wars, but we did get a brief look at Visceral’s new game, as well as some new worlds and characters being added to Star Wars Battlefront.
Titanfall will be getting a single-player campaign, and of course will continue on with the great multiplayer gameplay we loved from the original.
FIFA 17 will be getting its own NBA 2K-inspired single-player story mode, which certainly has many gamers up and listening to see what EA Sports can do with that experience. FIFA 17 will also add Premier League managers to the game for the first time.
Madden 17 offers the “deepest Franchise mode to-date”. Check out the trailer for it below.
