Hate to love them or love to hate them; EA is one of the largest video game publishers in the world. And while we got a few hints of what EA were planning for their E3 2012 press conference, when they finally took to the stage today, their games really did speak for themselves.
EA opened their E3 2012 press conference with Dead Space 3. While the game’s official unveiling may of been upset by some leaked images a few days ago, the game certainly impressed the crowd and fans of the series. The game introduces co-op and more action by the looks of it.
Madden NFL 13 was up next with NFL star Michael Irvin invited to join the stage. Madden NFL 13 introduces a new feature called Connect Careers which makes up its campaign mode. This new mode introduces new RPG elements to the player development system to simulate what it’s like to build a NFL career in real life.
Maxis was up next to showcase two new SimCity games. The first SimCity Social, a new casual Facebook game (following in the footsteps of the highly successful The Sims Social, I guess) and the second the brand new SimCity game, along with brand new gameplay footage. A reboot of sorts, the new SimCity brings the game back to its roots and features a brand new multiplayer mode which allows players to link their games up with one another.
Battlefield 3 was shown off next, specifically its new Premium service. Much like Call of Duty: Elite, players can pay extra for ‘premium’ content which includes all previously released and upcoming expansion packs. Also motorcycles were shown off.
While players may be paying more for Battlefield 3, Bioware’s MMORPG Starwars The Old Republic will be free to play up to level 15. New content for the game was also announced by Bioware at press conference, including a new PVP zone, new species and quests.
Up next was Medal of Honor Warfighter. While the 2011 Medal of Honor reboot failed to live up to expectations, its sequel defiantly looks to improve on all the criticisms and flaws of its predecessor, as seen in its pretty impressive multiplayer gameplay footage.
