What games will EA show?

EA’s conference is shaping up to be one of the biggest of the year with gameplay and details expected for Battlefield V, Star Wars Battlefront II, new EA SPORTS games and Anthem.

Battlefield V is arguably one of the biggest releases of the event, although it hasn’t had the most straightforward announcement. Fans and critics alike have been quick to pick apart the trailer and the memory of pay-to-win loot boxes has been hard to erase.

Anthem is somewhat of an unknown entity at present. It was originally announced last year with a teaser trailer that a gave a brief glimpse of the gameplay.

It is described as a “shared-world action RPG,” presumably because up to four players can band together to explore the open world as you fight “savage beasts and ruthless marauders.”

The only other thing we know is that players will equip “Javelin exosuits” which can be customised to help players “fly, leap and climb” throughout the world, a similar concept to the suits featured in Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

The annual refresh of EA SPORTS titles including FIFA, Madden and NBA Live are all expected.

It is unclear whether or not EA will announce details of any Star Wars games in the works or possible new content for Battlefront II.
