EA was the first big game entity to present at this years E3 and as such I have a few news bits I thought were interesting about it. If you have more you want to share that I didn't cover, please drop it in the comments.

BioWare's New Anthem

Anthem looks to be the big game EA is betting quite a bit on the success of and it launches next February. If you look at the gameplay you can see why as it looks like Halo/Destiny decided it needed more mech suits. The game also looks incredibly pretty yet I have an odd feeling like we've seen the same game play now for the last two years of E3. It keeps looking better, I just wonder how many more environments or scenarios the game has? Regardless the games looks incredible and BioWare does have a great track record for making incredible games and I hope everyone is singing along with Anthem when it launches. I haven't ever purchased a game on EA Origin before and Anthem may be the first one.

That Game Subscription

EA has been offering the $30 a year EA Origin Access game subscription for quite some time that allows you access to over 100+ EA games alongside other developer games. The subscription includes EA titles that are not quite new such as Titanfall 2, Mass Effect Andromeda, Sims 4, Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition and a lot more. If you're a big EA fan and don't have these games $30 a year is a great way to play them all. That said EA is offering a Premier Origin Access subscription for $100 a year that allows you access to the latest and greatest EA games early. For EA super fans this seems like a pretty good deal because buying two ultimate editions of any given EA game is sometimes more than $100 a year. It's interesting to see more companies get in the game subscription business and with EA's vast library and the fact that they are signing on a ton of other game content makes this fairly compelling.

A new Star Wars Game, Jedi Fallen Order was teased. No details, no images, nothing. But it's a tease!

Battlefront 2 is getting some Clone Wars content and a lot of other changes that many have been wanting.

The question about Anthem is which part of Bioware is on it. Andromeda was a game I thoroughly enjoyed and nearly-if-not-entirely completed to 100% completion, but it wasn't as good as its predecessors and missed the mark for many gamers, to the point where they canceled planned DLC (I was majorly bummed by that). I wonder what lessons they've taken from that experience.

Oh, and DICE is bringing Battle Royale to Battlefield, because of course they are. It would be more surprising if that DIDN'T happen at this point. It's the cash cow. I'm waiting for Tetris Battle Royale.
