EA’s E3 Press conference 2014


One of the biggest game publishers known to man has a (slightly) better conference than last year. You can also read our round ups of the SonyNintendoMicrosoft, and Ubisoft  conferences

Battlefield: Hardline Beta and trailer

The next instalment in Call of Duty’s biggest competitor, Battlefield: Hardline was announced in EA’s conference yesterday. A trailer was shown for the game, which revealed that this next title will be focused on the ‘battle’ between criminal forces and law-enforcers in a city environment. It seems that Hardline will be more akin to Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s humorous and  over-the-top approach. The Beta was released to the press on E3 consoles yesterday and is available to sign up to now.

Release date: October 21st 2014

Star-wars Battlefront trailer

A new trailer was shown for the reboot/sequel; Star Wars: Battlefront yesterday. The trailer showed off a glimpse of gameplay, but mostly just reminding people that the game actually exists; which for some is enough considering how highly regarded Star Wars: Battlefront 1 & 2 are.

Release date: TBA


Yet more was revealed for the soon to be released fighting game. The trailer EA showed focused primarily on the fact that Bruce Lee is in the game; LOOK HOW AWESOME HE IS GUYS! LOOK AT HIS REALISTIC ABS!

Release date: June 17th 2014

 The Sims 4

EA announced yesterday that The Sims 4 will be released on September 2nd this year. Possibly one of the company’s biggest money-makers, it’s unsurprising EA dedicated a demo to the game, which showed the more in-depth ways that players can create and abuse their Sims.

Release date: September 2nd 2014
