E3 2016 – Electronic Arts

Technically, the E3 convention doesn’t start until Tuesday, but effectively EA kicked off the event with their conference earlier today. So what was announced? Were there any surprises? Disappointments? Find out below:

Titanfall 2

Respawn’s Titanfall was an interesting and innovative new shooter but it failed to get the traction that the other big shooter franchises have. The sequel promises a single player campaign (trailer included) but can it take players from Call of Duty and Battlefield?

Madden 17

There will be a new Madden this year. Surprised? Of course not.


New FIFA. Nothing exciting.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

The new Mass Effect was announced last year but we’re still as much in the dark as we were then. It definitely won’t be out this year and we still don’t know if it’s connected to the original trilogy at all. Still, looks cool.

Star Wars

EA has the exclusive license to make Star Wars game and they plan to take advantage of it. They have a bunch of their different studios making Star Wars games in all kinds of different genres. However, I was still left a little disappointing. The next game scheduled is Battlefront 2, a sequel to a game that just came out last year. The Visceral Games (Dead Space series) Star Wars game won’t even be out until 2018.

Battlefield 1

This is not more of the same for the Battlefield series. There new game will take place during World War 1 promising all minds of new gameplay experiences. Don’t take my word for it. Watch the trailer above.

Final Thoughts

  • Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 both look impressive. But they’re direct competitors. Is that a good idea to have your two big winter releases be from the same genre? I don’t think so.
  • The EA sports games are inevitable. You already know if you’re going to buy them or not.
  • How far away is the new Mass Effect? It doesn’t look close.
  • Can we see something from Visceral and Respawn’s (Ttianfall) Star Wars games?
