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.

Fighter Squadron, Star Wars Battlefront’s New Mode Revealed!

A-Wings vs Tie FightersIt’s been awhile since we had a true and authentic flight simulator Star Wars game but at this past GamesCom 2015 in Germany last week, Electronic Arts revealed a new mode for Star Wars Battlefront called Fighter Squadron.

You remember the Rogue Squadron series? For those who don’t, the series lets you take the mantle of infamous ships such as the T-65 X-Wing to the X1 Tie Advanced.You fly these ships as you complete objectives against the Empire or Rebel Alliance, and compete in dogfights in space or various planets.

For Fighter Squadron mode, DICE is bringing that same feeling back from the past Rogue Squadron games but with up to 20 in a lobby for intense ship to ship battles. During matches, power-ups and upgrades come into play to give you advanced proton torpedoes or giving you the ability to pilot the Millennium Falcon!

Star Wars: Battlefront hits Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC on November 17th, 2015.

Summertime And You Know What That Means? – Editor in Chief Message for June 2015

The sun is shining, school is out, your neighborhood pool is open, and you’re being invited to each and every family barbecue. With those things in mind, it’s official…Summer is here! We have another month of huge things happening, so here’s what we have in store for you all!

This month is E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Thousands of developers and studios come together for four days in Los Angeles to bring you the latest and upcoming video games, systems, and projects. To prepare you for this event, we’ll be writing articles or recording videos of what we expect at this year’s show. Also, if you can’t watch any livestreams of either the Bethesda Softworks, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, and SquareEnix, you’re in luck! Teh Lunchbox Publications will be covering it all on Twitter! So be sure to follow us here!

Even with E3 going on this month, we will be having another TLBX Streams event for Batman: Arkham Knight and the release of The Elder Scrolls Online.

For Summer movies, sleep with the lights on after watching Insidious: Chapter 3 or watch a group of actors make it big and spending money while making their agent go nuts in Entourage this week. Next week, we’ll be visiting a park under new management while surviving a velociraptor attack in Jurassic World and finally, see what makes us happy, sad, scared, disgusted, and angry in Pixar’s Inside Out.

You may not see your Fall shows until September but that doesn’t mean there are no great television shows. Hannibal and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black are back for their third seasons with Rick and Morty returning for a second season, but we have new upcoming shows such as Ballers and The Brink.

We have already released a June Anime Movie list here, but some of us are looking at shows such as God Eater, Non Non Biyori Repeat, and To Love-Ru: Trouble – Darkness 2nd.

Remember to LIKE and FOLLOW us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Twitch for all of your up to date news and information on the entertainment world.

So from me and everyone here from Teh Lunchbox Publications, have a wonderful and safe Summer!
