The amount of conferences being held each year at E3 can get a little confusing. Here's one about games for your console. Now, here's one about games for all the consoles. Plus PC. Okay, so not at all confusing. When it comes to the big players in game publishing, EA need no introduction. And their E3 2015 line-up was definitely impressive. Mass Effect, Star Wars, Mirror's Edge, Need for Speed, and more! Click through for all the highlights.
With each new bit of information we get Star Wars: Battlefront keeps looking better and better. This looks at a battle on the ice planet of Hoth not only looks amazing, but is Star Wars in a way that videogames haven't been in a long, long time. Star Wars Battlefront is due November 19 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
The new Need For Speed is simply called just that. And with a moody trailer that shows the life of late night street racing, its an entry that looks to take the series back to its underground roots. So to speak. The game will feature a large open world, drag races, and of course, police chases. It's out November for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Although this cinematic trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda makes it out to look like a worthy successor to the Mass Effect trilogy, the lack of any definitive in-game footage does leave you feeling somewhat unsatisfied. Just a little bit. Because, well, Mass Effect is awesome. And we need to see more. More! Mass Effect: Andromeda is set for release late 2016.
With Mirror's Edge Catalyst set for release February next year, this trailer definitely looks polished. The futuristic free running of the original is set to return in full here. And will probably garner as many fans as detractors, much like the original did. For the record, the original Mirror's Edge was a refreshing, difficult, and great game.
As a sequel to a vibrant, fun, and family-friendly online shooter, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is already looking just as much fun and engaging. It's out 2016.
A new expansion to the free-to-play and popular MMO, the trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic - Knights of the Fallen Empire is more short film than indicative of any new gameplay. Which in the case of Star Wars, is always a good thing.
Finally we have the quirky and charming Unravel, a new platformer that will see players take control of Yarny a tiny character made from a single thread of yarn. As the trailer depicts this leads to some georgous looking real-world scenarios where Yarny has to swing, pull, and use the environment to naivgate a series of obstacles. A surprising and welcome announcement. Plus, a great note to finish on. Or, piece of string.
