EA, also known as Electronic Arts, held its E3-but-not-E3 EA Live event yesterday, where a multitude of… um… announcements were made. Here’s a quick pivot table in case you missed it.
The pre-show started with an announcement that Sims 4 Cottage Living Expansion is now available globally. The announcement is paired with this … moo-sic video from Japanese Breakfast. This song was actually performed in Sims language, Simlish. Take a look below:
Next is the revelation of GRID Legends from Codemasters. Legendary set to include an in-depth story mode presented in a documentary style. Additionally, the game will feature an improved AI on the driver’s personality, which is supposed to make your bot drivers look more human. If you remember Drivatars from Forza, it looks like it’s along the same line. GRID Legends Released on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2022.
Another notable announcement is Battle Portal described as a community driven platform that will allow you to find and create Battlefield battles. This means you can create your favorite maps for any game for custom game types. For example, you can create a game with World War II troops against a team Battlefield 2042 soldiers. Battle Portal set to launch first Battlefield 2042 on October 22 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
In the end, it seems Dead space has returned. EA Motive is a remake (not a remake) of the horror space sci-fi game. It will include assets completely rebuilt and powered by Frostbite, EA’s proprietary engine. Dead space will of course be exclusive to the current generation consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X | S with PC. The release date has yet to be announced.
