What gives EA? Well, at least we now know BioWare's new game is called Anthem and more details are forthcoming. A space-combat mode was teased as well, showing off the Millennium Falcon and a squadron of X-Wings going into battle with Imperial forces.

"DICE and Motive have something great with Battlefront 2". The game wasn't shown at the recent Star Wars Celebration, and now it's missed EA Play 2017. Likewise, all post-launch heroes, maps and weapons will be free for everyone who owns a copy of the game. At the end of this, we get a trailer for the expansion showing snowy environments and lots of action. It is nice to see it is getting new content and the support that it should be getting from the developers and publisher. He announces a major Federation Internationale de Football Association eSports tournament is coming in the fall.

Check out the flare of the rockets as the players boost off the cliff at about a minute into the video below. His journey is apparently continuing in this year's Federation Internationale de Football Association 18. By all accounts it looks very similar to the The Journey mode contained in last year's Federation Internationale de Football Association title, which put players into the boots of a promising young player trying to stand out in the big leagues.

Need for Speed Payback has some pretty fantastic feels. You can even customize the ability of your heroes. The player then takes control of this vehicle and makes their escape. Looking like a blend of Uncharted and Prison Break, the game tells the story of inmates Leo and Vincent attempting to escape a federal prison.

Little else is known about the game, other than it takes place in a world that is constantly changing.

Indian team avoides Vijay Mallya at charity event hosted by Virat Kohli
But typically what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests. Not just that, but his presence compels the Indian team to leave early so that they don't run into him at the function.

The majority of the trailer shows the planet of Naboo and it looks lovely. EA will be publishing this under its EA Originals banner. He claims it will be an emotional journey for two-players, designed entirely around split-screen co-op though he confirms online co-op will also be possible. The game will be coming early in 2018. After that, talk turned to speculation and expectations for Microsoft's Xbox Scorpio-focused conference. While this meant many fan-favorite stories from the Expanded Universe were left behind, it also meant all new content moving forward would be canon.

EA is serious about Basketball again with NBA Live 18. Whether BioWare's taking Game of Thrones to a new level remains to be seen, but one thing's certain.

There will be more vehicles, power-ups, classes, variety in tropopers than ever before in addition to a revamped gunplay system.

Location wise, all three cinematic eras of Star Wars will be represented.

A Way Out, an indie game from the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was also introduced at EA Play 2017. It's a good time to be a Battlefield fan. First, the story of Star Wars Battlefront II will showcase the bridge between what happened in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The three-stage match pits Battle Droid against Clone Troopers, with players controlling A-Wings, AAT tanks, and Vulture Droids. Along with the story reveal, the dev team talked about motion capture with Cristiano Ronaldo, how they fine-tuned the star player's animations to make them as authentic as possible. EA Play started off slow but definitely ended with a bang.
