To kick things off, Frank Zampella of Respawn Entertainment took to the stage to reveal more information on Titanfall 2. The critically acclaimed series will be branching out to not just the XBOX One and PC, but the Playstation 4 as well. A single player campaign will be included this time since the first Titanfall only focused on multiplayer. Expect this game to hit shelves on October 28th, 2016.

EA Sports is highly praised for their Madden and FIFA series. With E-Sports receiving critical acclaim, it’s not only about the first person shooters and MOBAs (Massive Online Battle Arenas), but sport video games as well. That’s why EA is having their own Sports League, having events and competitions from their wide array of sports games. With that being said, EA also announced that a total of $1 million will be in prize money.

For the first time, both FIFA 17 and Madden 17 will be engineered in EA’s Frostbite 3 Engine. For FIFA fans out there, for the first time you will have a single player story mode called The Journey, which follows rising soccer star Alex Hunter. FIFA 17 releases for Playstation 4, XBOX One, PC, Playstation 3, and XBOX 360 on September 27th, 2016.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is looking promising as the conference showed off a behind the scenes video of Bioware working hard on the game. Running on the Frostbite 3 engine, the premise of Andromeda has you exploring the Andromeda galaxy, making new findings such as planets and species. More information will be revealed this coming Fall.

Since the release of Unravel, EA has announced their EA Originals program, focused on independent games and development. Their next game Fe, features an open world game dedicated to nature. You make the choices on how you want to start and go throughout your adventure.

When it comes to Star Wars, EA is keeping us busy either with Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes . With new and updated content on the way, there are also more Star Wars games inbound. EA released this behind the scenes video of their studios working on upcoming Star Wars games. We can’t wait what more they have to offer us.

Last and certainly not least is DICE’s Battlefield 1. Setting place in World War I, this shooter features huge battles having 64 players placed against each other using different weapons, vehicles, and tactics. Battlefield 1 hits XBOX One, Playstation 4, and PC on October 21st, 2016.
