EA E3 2018 Supercut

Though EA has become almost universally derided, their profits are as high as ever. Can they win back the trust of the gaming community? You be the judge!


Battlefield V

Developer: EA DICE
Release: October 19
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Fans of Battlefield will likely be satisfied by this iteration.  New strategic options, best building destruction yet and a battle royal mode! Everybody loves battle royal right???



Developer: EA Sports
Release: September 28
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 3/4, Xbox 360/One, Nintendo Switch

Millions of marketing licenses combine to bring you the biggest FIFA yet.


Star Wars Battlefront 2: The Han Solo Season

Developer: EA DICE
Release: May 16
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

EA really shit the bed with Battlefront 2. It’s probably why the announcement of new Solo movie tie-in DLC felt so hopelessly apologetic.


Unravel Two

Developer: Coldwood Interactive
Release: June 9
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

More Unravel adorableness with a co-op feel.


Sea of Solitude

Developer: Jo-Mei Games
Release: Early 2019
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Without doubt one of few strong points in this presentation. Kay has has turned into a monster and must seek out monsters to restore her humanity. Nice visuals but details are murky, wait and see.


Madden NFL 19

Developer: EA Sports
Release: August 10
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Can’t get brain damage if you play NFL on a console. rollsafe.jpeg


Command & Conquer Rivals

Developer: Electronic Arts
Release: Unknown
Platform: Android, iOS

EA cruelly reminds us that they bought Westwood just to close it and steal their IP.



Developer: Bioware
Release: February 22
Platform: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Short snippets of gameplay, frame-rate issues and questionable presentation decisions were just some of the issues here. This reveal should have been a knockout blow but instead it’s put people off the game. Like Destiny 1, I can’t help but feel there’s some amazing moments waiting to happen in this game; if Bioware can live up to that potential is anyone’s guess.


One would think going first at E3 would be a privileged position. An opportunity to set the tone of E3 and show the gaming community that you really mean business.

As always EA squanders that opportunity.
