2018's Electronic Arts press conference was jam packed. A major breakaway from previous years, EA's sports titles took a back seat. On that subject however, we do know that FIFA 19 will be releasing on September 22, 2018. And FIFA 18, with all its World Cup content, is free to play (for a limited time) starting today on all platforms.
In similarly brief form, let's go over some major announcements! The title of Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars game is Jedi: Fallen Order, and it has a Holiday 2019 release window. We heard about Origin Access Premier, a new PC subscription service coming late summer 2018. (We don't know what makes it special over the existing Origin Access yet, which is free this weekend by the way,) Command & Conquer: Rivals was revealed as the new mobile take on the franchise. It's currently available for Android players, and releasing later on iOS. Unravel Two was premiered and revealed to be available already today for single and co-op play. Sea of Solitude is the new EA Original title, and will be releasing sometime in early 2019. EA also announced that they have given $1 million to three different charities, thanks to the Play to Give event this year. Star Wars: Battlefront II will be getting Clone Wars content later 2018, including the planet Geonosis and General Grievous, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, and Anakin Skywalker as playable characters.
Bigger news included Battlefield V, which will have a second reveal at the Xbox Briefing. It appears that aerial support will be a part of gameplay. Gamers will be able to move large machinery and weapons around the map for the first time ever. And environmental damage will be huge, with the ability to take down entire homes with tanks and missiles. Most importantly, it will have a Royale multiplayer mode.
BioWare gave us a closer look at Anthem, which is releasing on February 22, 2019. There are four javelin suits that players can utilize (Ranger, Colossus, Interceptor, and Storm) and switch between. There will be a shared world for multiplayer, and bases to explore in single-player. Fans can play solo in the greater world, but it will be more difficult.
