E3 2018: Anthem Will Not Feature Romances

EA Play

EA unveiled a story trailer for its newest role-playing game, Anthem, at E3 2018.

After an impressive showing at Electronic Arts' E3 2018 press conference yesterday, one of the biggest upcoming games on everyone's mind is Anthem, the new original IP from Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare.

In addition to Fallen Order, EA made some new announcements for Star Wars Battlefront II.

New Battlefield V gameplay videos, posted by YouTube channel hosts in attendance, showed more hard gameplay footage from its multiplayer mode, as opposed to last month's cinematic, perspective-shifting reveal trailer.

BioWare has confirmed "no loot boxes" and "no ability to pay for power" within Anthem's wholly-cosmetic DLC model, but the dev didn't make clear exactly what kind of season pass or DLC chapter content might be sold for the game at a later time. Players will be able to change up aspects of their suit that are chosen for missions. That means players who wish to do so can play the entire game on their own. From it, we can glean some new insights about the game. Between the "reveals" of what we already and the focus on esports, it's understandable that many left feeling unfulfilled and hoping for more.

The former Arsenal , Juventus and Inter Milan star returns to France after a 23-year career overseas as a player and a manager. Torrent, 55, replaces Patrick Vieira, who has left NYCFC to join Ligue 1 side OGC Nice after two and a half seasons in MLS .

E3 2018 may not officially start until next week - but you won't have to wait long to ride the hype train. Digital Extremes also brought a few PvP options to its co-op sci-fi game Warframe, and while Warframe's PvP didn't resonate as strongly with players as Wildlands' Ghost War did, those same players still appreciated having the option. Players can then send their units into battle against enemies, with the goal being to take control of other territories. The third person shooter is an open world continuous game that can be played simultaneously by up to four players.

As long as you have a solid internet connection, the promise is that anyone will be able to easily stream an ever-expanding library of games.

Other notable nuggets from the EA Play event are that there are lots of EA SPORTS titles on the way.

After this, EA announced a new Cloud service which enables gamers to play their "favorite titles" across a wide variety of platforms. It'll come out simultaneously for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though it's a safe bet that EA Access and Origin Access will offer their usual Play First Trials several days earlier on Xbox One and PC respectively. Not much is known about the game besides it will be a dark and edgy experience with the game's story taking place between Star Wars Ep. 3 and Ep 4.
