EA's E3 Press Conference - All the trailers, All the News, As it happened

EA's press conference at last kicked off after a few leaks earlier in the day. This one is an hour long so prepare yourself for a barrage of information.

Andrew Wilson was first on stage to tell us that we won't see everything in 60 minutes and it will instead be a taste of what's to come from EA. He also says that everyone at the show will go hands on and have fun, except us at home of course.

Kicking things off in the conference was Titanfall 2, with a PS4, Xbox One and PC release confirmed. We also got to see some single player and multiplayer trailers as seen below. You can read all about the game in our Titanfall story on ShopTo News.

“With the original Titanfall, we focused on nailing the gameplay and reinventing the way you move and fight in a first person shooter,” said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and a Co-Creator of the Call of Duty franchise. “With Titanfall 2, we’re building on that foundation by introducing a bespoke single player campaign backed by a deeper multiplayer experience that together will once again push the shooter genre forward.”

Madden 17 was next up, which will likely excite our U.S cousins more than us. 

The latest game have new ways to play, more balanced gameplay and it is built for esports, much like other sports games will too. EA says it is making competition fun for everyone regardless of their ability. This will allow you to host your own tournaments, take part in EA hosted tournaments or even take part in professional tournaments.

EA is putting up $1 million for those taking part in the Madden Championships, which seems a nice price if you're any good at it.

Mass Effect Andromeda was next up. We only got a look behind the scenes of this one really, but that's good enough for us because even the glimpse we got of the gameplay looked pretty awesome to us.

Even though we didn't learn anything new, we are still excited.

Next up we got told that EA are keen to support games that are already out. We also got told to try out EA Access for free for a limited time, as previously reported. 

EA also announced #playtogive which allows you to complete challenges, which will then go towards EA donating $1 million to charity.

FIFA 17 was next and we got a look a the new trailer and of course we heard all about The Journey, which we posted about on the site earlier.

We are told that Premier League Managers are now in the game, so you'll see them jumping around on the sidelines, which is quite exciting. Jose Mourinho arrived on the stage to promote this new feature, although he was pretty quiet.

Here's the gameplay trailer and of course the buzzwords that go with each new FIFA. Still we can't wait to play one, it is one of our favourite games after all.

EA Originals was announced next, which takes first time experiences and brings them to the world. In other words, EA are going to partner with Indies and fund them, such as they did with Coldwood Studios and Unravel. All the profit will go back to the developers.

The first game shown was 'Fe'.  It's a story about the connected world and a game without words. You play as a cub and explore the forest and can learn the songs of each creature and plant and work your way through the forest, although you'll need to look out for the silent ones.

Check out the first trailer below.


Jade Raymond was next on the stage to tell us that we are getting a new Star Wars Battlefront next year which will include content from the new films. In 2018 we'll get the Visceral Star Wars Game and beyond that we'll get a Star Wars game from Respawn too.

We got a little look at the games in a new trailer too.

Battlefield 1 was next up. We go a look a the new trailer and it looked very impressive indeed.

You can see some of the gameplay below and of course it supports up to 64 players. No battle is ever the same, thanks to destruction and all manner of vehicles and weapons. There is also dynamic weather, so playing on maps will change each time.

Behemoth vehicles are also being introduced, allowing you to take control of Airships, Armoured trains and more.

Battlefield 1 early insiders will get access to the beta this summer.

And that was that. So what did you think?
