The EA press conference has kicked off the annual E3 gaming conference in LA, giving us a taste of a number of new games coming over the next year.

The conference focused on a number of announcements, mainly sequels for Titanfall, Battlefield, Mass Effect, and the latest instalment of its huge footie franchise: Fifa 17.

Here are our favourites from the press conference: 

Battlefield 1

Launching 21 October, the game takes the Battlefield universe to World War I era, featuring tanks, planes, motorbikes, and even horses. There are a range of environments - from French villages to the Arabian desert. If the in-game action can keep up with the high-octane pace of the trailer, Battlefield fans should be in for one hell of a ride.

Titanfall 2

The robotic mechs are back. Featuring both single player and multiplayer, Titanfall 2 has all the gun-toting and blowing things up stuff that you'd expect, but with some added tweaks - such as a grappling hook to make your character fly that much further - and the promise of being even better than the first outing. Titanfall 2 is due out on 28 October on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC.

Star Wars

EA's approach at its E3 conference wasn't to focus on one specific Star Wars game, but to confirm that there will be effectively dozens coming over the coming years.

"EA has some really exciting games in the works for its Star Wars portfolio… We have completely different games on the horizon, and I just hope every fan walks away saying 'wow, you are going to bring my Star Wars fantasy to life'", said Jade Raymond, VP GM of Motive Studios and Visceral Games.

The one to get excited about though is what looks like a Star Wars X-Wing game for the PlayStation VR. There's only a glimpse in the trailer, so keep your eyes peeled for that in the future.


Footie fans get not only the football game they love in its 2016-17 season, but also a whole new game mode: The Journey. Focusing on the Premier League's next rising star, Alex Hunter, it's all about impressing your coach and making the right decisions in your career path. 

Also new to Fifa this year are club managers, plus a new gaming engine which utilises the Frostbite engine (as used in Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront).

The game is out in September on PS4 and Xbox One, PS3, and PC.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

"A whole new galaxy that awaits for you to explore". Mass Effect: Andromeda pushes the boundaries of known space into the next generation, delivering distant star systems with remote and hostile planets ripe for discovery. And it looks incredible. Mass Effect: Andromeda isn't coming until early 2017, but this trailer should give you a glimpse of what to expect in nine months' time.
