EA, also known as Electronic Arts, held their E3-but-not-E3 event EA Live yesterday where a myriad announcements were…um…announced. Here’s a quick roundup in case you missed it.
The pre-show began with an announcement that Sims 4 Cottage Living expansion was now available globally. The announcement was paired with this…moo-sic video from Japanese Breakfast. This song was actually performed in the Sims language, Simlish. Take a look below:
Next up was the reveal of GRID Legends from Codemasters. Legends sets to include an in-depth story mode presented in a documentary style. Additionally, the game will feature improved driver personality AI which is said to make your bot drivers seem more human. If you remember Drivatars from Forza, it sounds like it’s along the same lines. GRID Legends is set for release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4,and PC in 2022.
Another announcement worth noting was Battlefield Portal which is described as a community-driven platform which will let you find and make unique Battlefield battles. This means you can create your favorite maps for any of the games for custom game types. For example, you can create a game with a WWII army against a squad of Battlefield 2042 soldiers. Battlefield Portal is set to launch ahead of Battlefield 2042 on October 22 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Finally, it looks like Dead Space is back. EA Motive is remaking (not a remaster) the horror space sci-fi game. It’ll include totally rebuilt assets and powered by Frostbite, EA’s proprietary engine. Dead Space will be exclusively for now-current gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X|S along with PC, of course. A release date has not been announced yet.
