Electronic Arts announced a few new things at Gamescom this year too. Here are 4 of the major announcements for their franchises.
This year’s football iteration, FIFA 13, will add Football Club Match Day where real-life sports will be implemented within the game. This will allow for the most realistic connection to the game, as players will be able to get cutting edge news within their games that will affect teams and player forms. The implementation will be available in a game demo that arrives on September 11. Additionally, a Seasons mode will allow for teams of 2 to compete against each other online. Set in 10 game seasons, this will give gamers a chance to manage squads to victory. It’s also connected to Ultimate Team, which allows for player trading.
The horror survival, turned action title Dead Space 3 has received a release date. The game coming to Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC will arrive on 5 February 2013 in North America and 8 February 2013 in Europe. It introduces drop in and out cooperative play with additional character John Carver, due to EA thinking the original were too scary for some gamers. People that preorder a limited edition will get access to a First Contact Bundle and/or Witness the Truth Bundle. Both of these packs contain a special suit and weapon to make survival a little easier.
Battlefield 3 will get bundled in a Premium Edition. This pack will include the core game, along with a premium membership and all the content it yields, as well as a Multiplayer Head-Start Kit. The kit gives newcomers a leg up by providing them with a series of unlocked weapons, vehicle upgrades and gadgets. The bundle with premium content holds over 25 maps and 70 weapons and is priced at $69.99. It will debark on September 11, 2012 for North America and September 13 for Europe.
Remarkably, the publisher has also stated that the previously announced title Command & Conquer Generals 2 has been transformed and will now release as a free game with C&C themes. The game currently under development at BioWare will first explore the Generals theme, before heading to Red Alert and Tiberium universes. Using the powerful Frostbite 2 engine, the game will attempt to keep a high production quality within a free-to-play title. BioWare certainly isn’t new to the MMO model, seeing their current forays with Star Wars and Warhammer. EA also has another Command & Conquer title currently out for free with Tiberium Alliances.
