E3 2018: ‘Anthem’ trailer gives off ‘Destiny’ vibes with new gameplay

E3 2018: ‘Anthem’ trailer gives off ‘Destiny’ vibes with new gameplay

Respawn studio boss Vince Zampella announced the name of their new Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order, and that it will launch late next year.

This year's E3 will be EA's chance to reinvigorate enthusiasm in their household franchises, as well as prove to gamers that their upcoming games will be worth purchasing despite their many past mistakes.

Electronic Arts kicked off E3 last night with (a bit 0f) a bang, with its conference serving up a whole lot of Anthem. The event starts at 7pm BST and we'll be bringing you everything as it happens, but what should we expect?

Not much else is known at this point, but it's said to come out in 2019 for the holidays.

E3 2018: Linger in Loneliness With Sea of Solitude, Coming Early 2019
"When humans become lonely, they become monsters,"said Cornelia Geppert, writer and creative director of the upcoming title". Revealed at EA Play , EA's pre-E3 2018 event, the game deals with loneliness and the struggles associated with it.

The road to redemption continues for Battlefront II. As revealed during the press conference, these suits have different gameplay styles and benefits and can be customized cosmetically.

And two games were outright launched during the EA Play: Unravel 2, a co-op sequel to the 2016 EA-published puzzle platformer, and Command and Conquer: Rivals, a new free-to-play, Clash Royale-like spin on the classic RTS series for iOS and Android.

The game will be available on Android and IOS, with the title available as a pre-alpha on Android now. Unlike Destiny's Tower, a social space that always brims with players dancing around and/or ignoring each other, you'll have this little part of the world to yourself (aside from the NPCs, obviously). They have achieved this by making the base areas single player but the wider world is a persistent multiplayer space right down to every player experiencing weather effects at the same time.

This is what the developers describe as "our world, my story". The highly anticipated action-RPG will arrive on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 22, 2019. Players will be able to customize and personalize their suits with unique paint jobs and gear so they'll have the right tools to confront nearly any situation, and look good doing it.
