Say what you will with EA’s lacklustre press conference in comparison to the rest, but when it comes to YouTube numbers, they won E3. They won big.
YouTube announced the stats of the most viewed games on YouTube during E3 2017. These numbers include trailers, official gameplay, media coverage as well as reactions from fans. And it looks like EA’s strategy on bringing loads of content creators to their show paid off as four of thier games dominated the top 10 list.
Star Wars Battlefront II is the massive hit this year, as expected with 7.9 million views on the official gameplay alone. (Hopefully YouTube excluded the original Battlefront II that [...]
Microsoft’s E3 presser closed with a first look at the new game from Bioware, Anthem, today. Story continues after the gameplay reveal below.
In Anthem, the Mass Effect studio puts you and your friends in the role of Freelancers- explorers of the post-apocalyptic world in search of adventure and loot. Use exo-suits called Javelins to traverse land, sea and sky as well as fight monsters to be rewarded with more loot and bragging rights. Two of these Javelins were shown off, the Ranger, a more agile suit, and the Colossus, which is basically a mecha. The gameplay trailer above features examples of how the game handles mobility, combat and some of the gorgeous creature [...]
“There has been a trailer for Battlefront 2 dropped”
“I have felt it”
With EA’s press conference kicking E3 into high gear last night, audiences were treated to news on the publisher’s brand-new Disney game, Star Wars Battlefront 2. We got a shiny new in-engine gameplay trailer for the sequel to the game described as “Battlefield, but Star Wars”.
The trailer itself is packed with plenty of great titbits- You can partake in battles across the Star Wars trilogies as Imperials and Rebels, or, for the prequels, Clones and Droids. The trailer shows off various guns, droid types and equipment, like jump packs for Clone Troopers and huge [...]
The first press conference from E3 2017 (which technically not part of E3 proper) has happened and a slew of announcements have been made. EA is opening up strong with a better presentation this year, but still with some slight oddness from some of the presenters on stage. What matters though is the games being shown off and they have a decent lineup shown this year.
Here’s a quick rundown, with related articles if available:Story Modes for Madden 18 and FIFA 18, More Esports
Madden 18 will be the first title in the American football series to include a story mode called the Longshot, taking cues to FIFA 17’s The Journey. This year’s FIFA will [...]
Story mode is all the rage for sports games, even Madden 18 is joining in. Taking cues from FIFA 17’s story mode The Journey, Madden’s take of a single player story mode Longshot will star Devin Wade as he try to make his name to be drafted into the NFL.
Like The Journey, expect a cinematic telling of the story as you make your way up, and make RPG-esque decisions along the way.
Here is the first trailer. Check it out:
Madden 18 wil be out on the PS4 and Xbox One on August 25 of this year.
In the E3 press conference by EA, Need For Speed gets its first gameplay trailer shown. And it really looks a lot like a Fast and Furious movie, or another take of Need For Speed Undercover with its focus of story driven action driving with objectives. Or another more recent example would be Need For Speed: The Run, which did not do well and was the last game by Black Box Studios.
It looks decent, all the explosives and crashes look and sound good, but from a gameplay perspective, handling wise it’s reminscent of Burnout, Criterion’s Need For Speed Games and Need For Speed 2015’s drift handling with all the sliding and radical slo-mo each time you wreck a [...]
