If we were to summarize the EA conference we could summarize the almost ninety minutes of presentation in which there has been zero surprises. His E3 conference was already focused on the titles we have known for months and, on the other hand, on projects that have been seen for many years such as the new Criterion, Mirror's Edge 2 or Mass Effect. The turn in the Gamescom It has been to delve into the games that are around the corner and to be able to make it clear which path they are following in each case.
A surprise was to be expected from Bioware after the trio of teasers shown in recent weeks but the thing has been much more decaf than you would expect. And no, there has been no room for Mass Effect, the adventures of Faith or the multiplayer madness of the new Criterion project. For what there has been time, it has been for some micro-cuts in the broadcast that have delayed it more than expected because there was only an official signal. After the jump, the detail shown.
Dragon Age Inquisition He was in charge of opening the conference with a very extensive video that showed us a mission in detail, delving into the combat mechanics, equipment and equipment. Very illustrative and it seems that, perhaps, Inquisition itself is that redemption with respect to the second installment that they are looking for in Bioware.
The sims 4 has had, again, an extensive in-depth look but, this time, what has been shown was played directly on stage by people from Maxis while his general manager and Peter Moore dripped jokes and, in the case of the latter , a profuse love for Liverpool and their football club. Quite more lively than one could expect.
As far as football is concerned, there has been room for FIFA World, the free2play for PC that will receive a new engine in the coming months and for FIFA 15, the main dish of EA Sports for this year and that has presented the profound improvements in its goalkeepers as well as other tweaks such as menus, additions such as transfers in Ultimate Team and a new way of organizing and planning tactics for our teams.
Bioware, meanwhile, has spoken of Star Wars: The Old Republic and the deep facelift it has undergone since its launch, now focusing on a new free expansion that will add housing to the Star Wars MMO. Your advertisement, Shadow RealmsIt looks like a multiplayer A-RPG that bets on 4vs1 and reminds us of the horrors of the new Fable Legends approach.
EA, of course, could not stay without his MOBA and Dawngate has made an appearance, announcing its open beta for everyone from today.
And finally, an important portion of shots: Battlefield Hardline has presented its cinematic campaign structured as a TV series and that will offer a more leisurely and narrative approach than the Battlefields of recent years. There has been a small gap for the announcement of two new modes, one focused on the chases in different vehicles and another, much more competitive and focused on e-Sports, where two teams of five members must fight to save or retain a group of hostages.
That said, very few surprises and we have not even been able to see anything of an NBA Live 15 that is supposed to be in development. EA seems to be taking 2014 as a transition year and it will be from the next when his major projects (Mass Effect, Star Wars, Mirror's Edge ...) will begin to emerge.
