E3 2016- EA Conference Highlights

EA was up first to kick off this year’s E3. Not much was shown off, and it seemed little information was given on games like Mass Effect Andromeda and their upcoming Star Wars titles. They did say current games will be getting a lot of support, pledging that we’ll see the biggest amount of updates across both consoles and the PC. Also mentioned was the EA Originals program, set up to support small developers. Below are the highlights of the conference.

Titanfall 2

Both a new multiplayer trailer and one for the single player campaign was shown. Six new Titans will be introduced to the multiplayer, which will allow for greater customization and is said to have a deep progression system. Titanfall 2 is slated to be released on October 28 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
