8 most important announcements from EA's E3 2017 press conference

12 June 2017

Here you will find our coverage of EA's E3 conference and everything that happened throughout it. In the conference, EA showed off the latest versions of the FIFA, Madden and NBA Live franchises, new gameplay for Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Need For Speed: Playback, a new DLC pack for Battlefield 1, and 2 new titles in A Way Out and Anthem. "Lots of sports and mostly teases" isn't a phrase that inspires confidence, but it could have been a whole lot worse. This story mode is titled "Longshot" and follows a new football player who is looking to make it big.

In all it wasn't a strong conference in the slightest, but it wasn't Ubisoft Laser Tag levels of disastrous. You can watch the Anthem teaser below. A Way Out is an upcoming co-op prison break game that sees you and a friend work together to bust your characters out of the clink and reunite with their families. The game will feature a storyline with unique characters, each with their own driving styles, and a huge and diverse open world with a narrative for players to progress through.

NBA Live missed 2016, but the team is back with NBA Live 18 this year. While the game will be releasing in September, there is no release date right now. Alex Hunter, the fictional character from past year, will be taking the lead role once again however the trailer suggests that he's considering the possibility of leaving the Premier League and moving to the Major League Soccer. However, some fans will be able to play the game three days early according to EA. More information is being revealed at today's Microsoft Conference. The publisher went all out this year, revealing major and some minor news. The first content coming to the game will be themed around the new movie "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and will include new characters. Everything should be better than the first game if EA stays true to its words.

A Way Out comes to us as a partnership between EA via their EA Originals publishing program and Hazelight, a new studio from the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. That means that A Way Out can not be played solo and the split-screen mode may mean it is not coming to PC.

Multiplayer includes more planets, heroes, vehicles and deeper character and skills customisation. However, PS4 users will be getting free trials for a wide range of games.
