The 2017 EA Play conference is a wrap. While Star Wars Battlefront 2 was the obvious (and impressive) centerpiece, BioWare’s forthcoming Anthem game and a new co-op experience from the makers of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Check out all the trailers below, as well as links to Shack’s write-up of each announcement for more details.
Star Wars Battlefront 2
Battlefront 2’s campaign and multiplayer modes put in appearances during EA Play. Multiplayer ate up the brunt of EA’s allocated time, but that’s to be expected: the company wouldn’t want to divulge many story nuggets ahead of the game’s November release.
BioWare’s had a new IP simmering on the back burner for several years. At EA Play, we got our first look at the Mass Effect developer’s brand-new universe, Anthem.
NBA Live 18
NBA Live took last year off, but it’s back, and with the single-player RPG mode that is becoming a bigger staple of EA’s sports franchises.
Need for Speed Payback
Payback, the next Need for Speed, races onto store shelves on November 10. EA’s trailer showed the story’s main characters who will drive cars really, really fast to thwart the machinations of a crime syndicate.
A Way Out
From the makers of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons comes A Way Out, a co-op-only game with an emphasis on local co-op.
Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar
A September release for Battlefield 1’s In the Name of the Tsar expansion was the most prominent in EA’s bundle of Battlefield 1 announcements, but a steady trickle of maps this summer—including two nighttime-themed settings—are also on the way.
Madden NFL 18
Madden is the latest EA sports franchise to receive an RPG-like campaign mode, which appeals to people like me, who don’t know a lot about football beyond how to spell it.
