So Electronic Arts just hosted their first EA Play event, something different to their usual E3 program, with Andrew Wilson hosting in Los Angeles and Peter Moore hosting in London, the show bounced between them both. What this meant was the show was super disjointed, especially when things would start up on another stage elsewhere. But of course, it was all about the games and EA delivered quite a number of them that look great and some that don't.
Titanfall 2 was the game that opened the show, of course as is the case there was a leak just before hand, which took a little wind from the sails, but still not enough to diminish the game in anyway. The game is getting a true single player mode, which is no longer online required, so thank goodness and this time it is a more personal story. Players will step on to The Frontier as a Militia rifleman with aspirations of becoming a Pilot and this time, you won't be someone trained to use a Titan, but your Titan is more alive than before.
Stranded behind IMC enemy lines, and against overwhelming odds, you must team up with a veteran Vanguard-class Titan and uphold a mission you were never meant to carry out.
In multiplayer, Titanfall 2 delivers best-in-class shooter gameplay backed by more depth and variety including new Titans – each with their own unique abilities, a deeper set of Pilot abilities, an expanded arsenal of weapons, more customization options, and a robust progression system.
Titanfall 2 is set to release on October 28th for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
At its heart, Fe is a personal narrative about our relationship with nature, the land, and its beings. It’s a wordless celebration of our longing to be one with world around us. It’s a story that is set to remind us that everything in this world is connected, living in a delicate balance that is constantly under threat. It's a game full of discovery, conflict, and relationships.
As expected, EA also talked about their sports games, which again are promised to see massive improvements, which it seems to be the same tune they sing every year. This year the focus went off Madden, outside of its competition they are doing over the next few days and went to Fifa 17, this year sporting the first year the game will be developed on the Frostbite engine.
