For this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, EA opted to host their own event, where it was able to more personally make its announcements. Here, the company headlined three upcoming and much anticipated releases: "Mass Effect: Andromeda", "FIFA 17" and "Titanfall2."
Mass Effect: Andromeda
According to MCV UK, the announcement surrounding "Mass Effect: Andromeda" was a little disappointing, as BioWare promised to release more information as the year finishes. But in the trailer that was shown, viewers were able to see some original aspects from the "Mass Effect" trilogy that made it great. These include what appears to be a salarian, player's biotic abilities, the M35 Mako, the Citadel and the a ship that looks a lot like Commander Shepard's Normandy.
What is new to "Mass Effect: Andromeda," however, is the presence of a female protagonist - which likely means players will, for the first time, have the option to play a male or female character.
"FIFA 17" also introduces a new aspect to the veteran series. In the upcoming game, players will be able to play in a story mode, called "The Journey." Players will control Alex Hunter, who is trying to make in in the industry.
Other additions include the inclusion of managers Jurgen Klopp, Pepp Guardiola, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho.
The company also highlighted "Titanfall 2," which will be ready for PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One by October 28.The game will still be available for those who prefer online, multi-player gaming. However, for the first time ever, the game is also available for single-play use. The story will focus mainly only the "relationship between the Titan and its pilot."
Another new aspect of the game is the presence of a grappling hook. As reported on by C|Net, this puts the whole pretense of the "Titanfall" to another level. That is, to be able to control these quick and agile pilots who are able to fight Titans from the air in an attack-from-any-angle combat. Therefore, the inclusion of a grappling hook, is game changing. It allows players to cover great distances and make jumps that were impossible before.
Players will definitely need to wait a little longer before they can get their hands on the game from the comfort of their home, but it definitely looks like the games will be worth the wait.
