What to Expect at the Upcoming EA Play Live 2021: The Future of FPS
EA Play Live 2021: The Future of FPS, which will be hosted by IGN’s own Stella Chung, will start EA Play’s Spotlight Series with a broad conversation of both Battlefield 2042 and Apex Legends.
Joining Stella will be DICE’s general manager Oskar Gabrielson, DICE LA’s Christian Grass, Apex Legends’ game director Chad Grenier, and co-founder and CEO of Respawn Entertainment Vince Zampella.
EA prodded that fans will be treated to an in-depth discussion of Battlefield 2042’s uncover, a look at what to expect from the two games at the EA Play Live Showcase on July 22, and a chat about “the future of FPS games as a whole.”
While the EA Play Live Showcase will in all probability feature the greatest declarations, there ought to be a lot to anticipate in this conversation with key members from the teams who rejuvenate these games.
DICE’s Battlefield 2042 is apparently EA’s biggest game of the upcoming Christmas season, and we’re certain to get a deeper showcase of the large-scale military sim. Expect tremendous 128-player fights on PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and PC, yet no campaign mode for this multiplayer-centric shooter.
Rumors additionally recommend an at this point unannounced mode containing classic Battlefield series maps and modes, yet we’re actually looking out for the official word. EA will hold a “Future of FPS” stream on July 7 to cover both Battlefield and Apex Legends.
Dead Space Revival
EA’s Dead Space series produced a pair of incredible sci-fi survival horror entries alongside a middling trilogy-capper, yet it’s been sitting on the shelf since 2013.
VentureBeat revealed that EA’s Motive studio (Star Wars Squadrons) is working on a modern revival of the original game, which could be comparable in a way to deal with Capcom’s new Resident Evil 2 and RE3 remakes.
It’s all speculation now, however, an appropriate Dead Space revival could give an extraordinary jumping-off point to proceed with the franchise. It has been rumored to show up at EA Play Live this month, yet we’ll need to keep a watch out whether it works out.
Madden NFL 22
No shock here: Madden NFL 22 is coming out in August across a wide array of platforms. The series has seen diminishing review scores over the past few years, with 2020’s Madden NFL 21 apparently affected by the pandemic crunch. Both Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will show up on the cover of the current year’s game, with atmosphere-boosting “dynamic gameday” features and a new franchise mode leading the list of additions.
It’s out in August, and EA will delve into it during a spotlight stream on July 19. We assume that FIFA 22 will appear at EA Play Live, as well, conceivably close by NHL 22.
An EA Sports surprise
EA Sports has another stream planned for July 20, with the organization prodding “an extremely cool new addition to an extremely popular and long-running EA Sports franchise.”
Could it be a new SSX snowboarding game? The new (and right now announced) Skate game? Possibly a recovery of the lethargic NCAA Football franchise since the NCAA is changing its guidelines on college players being paid for their similarity? All are possible!
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2?
Alongside the Dead Space rumors, there are likewise suggestions that EA will report a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn’s 2019 single-player adventure.
It sold well and caught strong reviews, so a follow-up has appeared to be a conceivable chance. Fans are sticking a few recent tweets by EA and gaming publication Game Informer as possible prods, even though it could well amount to nothing for EA Play Live 2021.
Lost in Random
EA has floated towards more hand-crafted, indie-esque games with its EA Originals line, and we’ll get the first look at gameplay for the next of them, Lost in Random.
Billed as a combination of “explosive dice battles, time-freezing tactics, and card collection,” it sounds like a potentially compelling mash-up with an interesting gothic appeal. It’s made by Zoink, the team behind the previous EA Originals game Fe.
No Mass Effect or Dragon Age
Statements of regret ahead of time to fanatic BioWare fans. Sadly, the studio has already affirmed that its in-development Mass Effect and Dragon Age sequels are skipping EA Play Live this year.
The two games are conceivable still far out, so they’re likely not prepared for such a showcase.
