We were half-expecting that EA would totally bail from participating E3. And we're glad they didn't and decided to reveal details to the newest games. Here's a recap below.
While its Activision rival - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare - has taken to space battles in the far future, EA decided it's about time to go back to 1914, where Battlefield 1 takes place using World War I as its setting. It will include vehicles and monstrous things called behemoths that can make anyone shiver at its sight. EA is pulling no punches with regards to multiplayer, as multiplayer maps will allocate up to 64 players. And that's when we can say-holy shit, right?

Titanfall was a kickass game with parkour elements, giant mechas, and giant explosions. Now, to make things bigger, Titanfall 2 will be featuring single-player campaign, Titans that can think and with feelings, and a grappling hook to make combat even sweeter.

This will include funding, marketing, and publishing. For some years now, indie games have opened up unique experiences to gaming, further strengthening the idea of videogames as an art form. The first game with the honor being an EA Original is Fe.
