Last night, at the E3 exhibition in Los Angeles, which started after Bethesda Softworks
Electronic Arts managed to say its word. Was this word interesting? What is the concentration of space games at the conference from EA? We read under the cut.
Mass effect: andromeda
Rumors about the fourth part of the space saga Mass Effect began to go right after the release of the third game. Even despite the death of the main character, the denial of all the people involved in the project, the fact that through all the promises none of our choices really affected the game, no matter what people did not believe in the death of the Mass Effect series. Recently, the network began to appear art that tied to a new game. But now everything is official.
The game is being developed by BioWare Montreal. The game, called Mass Effect: Andromeda, will be released in late 2016 on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. We will wait for the gameplay videos at the next Electronic Entertainment Expo in a year.
Need for speed
Marcus Nilson, head of Ghost Games, went on stage to announce that the new Need for Speed game, which is being developed by his studio, will be no less a restart of the entire series. The game will be released in early November without any numbers and prefixes in the title. Nilson also said that the game is being developed on the Frosbite Engine, which will provide excellent picture and dynamics. Players will just feel the speed on themselves. Of course, in the new part of Need for Speed there will be ample opportunities for customizing cars: from the engine, nitrous oxide and suspension, to the spoiler, wheels and vinyls. At the end we were shown the trailer for the game:
The game will be released on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Next came Martin Salin, who represented Coldwood Interactive and her game Unravel. This is a rather interesting and funny platformer in which you can play for a skein of thread. Martin even took out a “living” incarnation of a man of red threads from his pocket, who would run around the world in the game and do something.
In the video, Salin talks about how happy he is at E3, jokes, and then shows us part of the Unravel gameplay. He never announced the release date.
After that, we again showed the trailer Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, which we already saw in the previous article
NBA Live 16, FIFA 16, Madden NFL 16
And then went a series of sports simulations from EA Sports. The first trail shows us the gameplay of the NBA Live 16 basketball simulator. Few people play basketball from EA due to the presence on the NBA2K market, which has been worked out much better on many points. However, now EA promises us realistic player faces created using HD Scan technology, realistic game physics enhanced with Motion Tracking motion capture. Well, we’ll soon find out how it really is, but for now you can watch the video:
Pele himself helped introduce the football simulator. However, in this case, improvements in graphics or physics should not be expected. The only major and noteworthy innovation is the presence of women's teams. Watch the video:
And finally, the trailer for the American football simulator:
There is also not much new: several types of movements have been added, it has become possible to assemble a team from different players.
Star Wars: The Old Republic - Knights of the Fallen Empire
Another vivid cinematic trailer for the Knights of Strength from the Star Wars universe:
For those who don’t know The Old Republic, this is an MMORPG based on the Star Wars universe. This trailer is dedicated to the release of a new campaign for SW: TOR October 27, 2015. A new plot can be passed both for the bright side and for the dark.
Next, Mike Rasmussen told us about a mobile game about the minions from the cartoon Despicable Me loved by many. The video consists of a trailer, gameplay and comments by Rasmussen himself:
In fact, in the Minions Paradise we will be building the city for the minions on a large island.
Mirrors Edge: Catalyst
Then they showed a video clip of a game in which there would be no loading screens, but only an open world. At the same time, as developers say, a big world.
We will be able to run around the city with the name Catalyst for the girl Faith next spring. If the computer allows.
Star Wars: Battlefront
And for sweet EA left us the return of the legend in the person of Star Wars: Battlefront. In the development of a new version of this epic game was attended by Lucasarts studio. Thanks to this, it was possible to recreate many locations and gadgets in the form in which they are seen by people standing at the origins of Star Wars. The gameplay video did not disappoint. The picture is at a good level, the battlefield burns from the shots of AT-AT, X-Wings and the soldiers themselves. The beautiful planet Hot, the terrible battle of the Empire against the rebels, and at the end of the video we see how the light blades crossed Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader:
The developers said that the game will have up to 40 different game modes, even on the same computer with a split screen (as, for example, in Serious Sam). Watch out for Battlefield and other shooters, Battlefront is coming.
Well, the representatives of EA, like their colleagues from Microsoft, were not laconic, but they showed us many interesting and serious projects for which you can raise money to upgrade your computer. And then on Treshbox news with E3 from Ubisoft.
