With titles like Fifa 18, Madden 18, and Star Wars: Battlefront II, it seems fitting that Electronic Arts and their ‘EA Play’ show kick off the festivities at this year’s E3 2017. Andrew Wilson started the event by boasting “eight new experiences” that gamers should be excited about. Wilson then highlighted an extended 30-minute look at Star Wars: Battlefront II, citing that the publisher addressed some of the opportunities (criticisms) that players had with the first title.
Coincidently, EA also took a moment out of its press conference to highlight the upcoming ‘Project Scorpio’ citing that the hardware is “coming at the right time”. Check out more from Star Wars: Battlefront II, Fifa 18 and the rest of the day’s unveilings and announcements below.
