LOS ANGELES—Though Electronic Arts officially dropped out of the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year, its press conference presentation at the EA Play event felt a lot like a standard E3 presentation.
The event started off with new footage from Titanfall 2, which now comes with the single-player focused campaign its predecessor lacked (including a talking Titan voiced by Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen). The new game features six new giant walking titans, a “deep progression system,” and a grappling hook that can be used to launch yourself right into a Titan cockpit or grab an enemy out of the sky. The game is available on October 28.
We also got more information about Battlefield 1, the previously announced military history shooter set in an alternate history version of World War I. EA promised that “destruction is more intuitive and natural than ever” in the game, and it highlighted the ability to take control of “behemoth” vehicles like air ships, armored trains, and entire battleships. A dynamic weather system with rain, fog, and blinding sunlight will also feature prominently.
