E3 2018: Anthem's Javelin Exosuits Detailed, And They're Like Classes

We'll be live blogging EA Play in about a half hour and will keep eagle eyes out to see if the leak is true! This is obviously a very new and different path for BioWare games, as they're typically associated with romance - games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age had players swooning all over, but it looks like Anthem won't feature that at all. The game was meant to be a dynamic, living world game that could allow for you to have friends drop in and drop out of the story you experience. EA hasn't gone anywhere near the concept of stat-altering loot yet, but at least we know we'll be able to look rad.

Star Wars Considering Star Wars Battlefront 2 launched just a year ago, we probably won't be getting a full successor any time soon, but EA is the exclusive license holder to Star Wars - if they're going to announce any new expansions for the game, now is the time. Respawn offered zero gameplay of this new game on the EA Play stage.

Expect reveals of Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Madden 19, and a new Star Wars title. GOOOOOAAAAAL! This comes alongside a free trial of Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 on all platforms, so you can get in and play the World Cup stuff for free right now.

As a result, Ghana's Information Minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid says they will dissolve the Football Association. A police vehicle is pictured at the premises of Ghana Football Association in Accra.

EA has made a similar promise for the upcoming "Battlefield V" at the conference held Saturday. There is no PvP mode and you can play the entire game by yourself, which should please those who get annoyed by Destiny's locked off content. Mark Darrah also seemed to hint that a public beta will occur.

Expect EA to go hard on Anthem during their presentation this year, most likely with a lengthy demo. As you complete objectives, you return back to the hub to complete your missions and move forward with your individual story arc. Anthem is due out for PC and consoles February 22.

Gameplay showcased at the event primarily demonstrated the versatile Ranger and tanky Colossus Javelin models, but the Interceptor and Storm models were also confirmed. The latter's launch is far more limited, however, with Android users having first crack at the game's "pre-alpha" test version.
