EA doubles down on sequels and spinoffs, teases  Mirror's Edge 2
EA doubles down on sequels and spinoffs, teases Mirror's Edge 2
June 10, 2013 | By Kris Ligman




Electronic Arts kicked off its E3 press conference this afternoon, previewing 11 titles intended for next-generation platforms.

Worth noting is that, as we learned previously, that "next gen" qualifier does not include Nintendo's Wii U -- at least not at this stage. All titles showcased at EA's presser are purpose-built for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

There was one exception: in confirming earlier leaks concerning PopCap's Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, a third-person shooter based on its popular browser game, we learned Garden Warfare will be Xbox One first, then move to Xbox 360 at a later point.

For Frostbite 3 games, we saw previews for Star Wars: Battlefront as well as live demos for Need for Speed and Battlefield 4. The hotly anticipated Mirror's Edge 2 was also exhibited, as was BioWare's Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is targeted for Fall 2014.

Unsurprisingly, EA's sports lineups took up the lion's share of today's offerings, with trailers for next-gen NBA, Madden, UFC, and FIFA titles.

In all, EA's roster of titles -- many of which are promised to be playable on the show floor -- are conventional and safe: sequels of existing franchises or new entries into proven genres. Nevertheless, the titles represent a slightly broader spectrum of audiences than we witnessed at the Microsoft press conference, with EA addressing casuals, sports fans, and RPG fans in addition to core player action fare like Battlefield and Titanfall.
