“We’re incredibly excited to announce this new Plants vs. Zombies adventure,” said Jeremy Vanhoozer, Senior Creative Director, Plants vs. Zombies franchise. “The first Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare was a simple idea, and we were humbled and amazed by how much players loved it. With Garden Warfare 2, we’ve continued to listen to our fans to deliver the craziest experience yet – packed with more of what they loved about the original and even more of the crazy, weird and unexpected that makes this franchise so special. ”

Fans have played a huge part in the development of Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2. As a thank you, all players of the original Garden Warfare will have the ability to transfer almost every one of their unlocked characters into Garden Warfare 2 right from launch, so they can jumpstart their new adventure with their favorite plants and zombies.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 reaches new levels of depth and fun. With fresh lawn-inspiring modes featuring plants on the attack, players can go on the offensive as the plants in an all-new 24-player Herbal Assault mode, or rally the zombies together and defend against the plants in the 4-player co-op mode, Graveyard Ops. Garden Warfare 2 also introduces six new character classes including Super Brainz, a zombie super hero who thinks he’s an 80’s action movie star, and Citron, a bounty-hunting orange from the future, for a total of more than 100 playable character variants. Each new character class offers outrageous powers and abilities that will provide an added layer of strategic depth to battles. All this takes place across 12 new immersive maps that are bursting with personality and humor, spanning everything from a Time Travel Theme Park to the final frontier.

Gamers can also play Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 their way. They can play multiplayer with or against friends or enjoy Garden Warfare 2 playing solo. For the first time, we’re introducing a unique solo play experience where fans can play every single game mode either by themselves against AI, or with the help of a friend in local split screen. Solo play will also offer a new twist on how gamers experience this universe with more details to come soon.

Coldwood and EA today announced a partnership on the development of a new puzzle platformer game titled, Unravel.

Unravel introduces Yarny, a tiny, new character made from a single thread of yarn, who embarks on a seemingly larger than life journey through the breath-taking, lush environments of Northern Scandinavia. Using Yarny’s small thread and big heart, players will traverse nature’s obstacles in this unique physics-based puzzle platformer.
“The idea of Unravel was created from a very personal place. We didn’t start out by saying we’re going to make a puzzle platforming game. We started by thinking more about our lives, and the things we hold meaningful. We wanted the game to have a heart and the gameplay could always be designed to represent that,” says Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood. “The tale of Unravel is about love, and the bonds between people. And the yarn is a representation of that. Yarny’s red thread is the tie that connects everything in the game, from the gameplay mechanics to the story, and the people in it.”

Unravel is a game all about overcoming obstacles, both big and small. Some challenges are simple, like using Yarny’s thread to swing across a gap, or rappel down a tree. Sometimes things get more complex, and players will need to use Yarny’s thread in clever and creative ways to find the path forward. Whatever the case, no feat is too big for Yarny. Along the way, witness him unlock a heartfelt story about love and longing, and the ties that bind. The tale is told completely without words and Yarny is the red thread that runs through it all.

Unravel will be available for digital download on Origin for PC, the PlayStation 4 , and Xbox One.

Today EA and DICE offered the smallest glimpse of Mirror’s Edge 2 at last year’s E3. This year, DICE is promising a grander look at the game, while also revealing the game’s new title. The game will be known as Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst

“Mirror’s Edge has always had a special place in the hearts of all of us at DICE,” senior producer Sara Jansson said on the Mirror’s Edge website. “The first game had a lot of promise. It was unlike anything else in terms of the gameplay and style — it had a unique soul. But as much as we loved that game, we knew it could be more. So that’s what we have set out to do as we introduce Mirror’s Edge to a new generation. “The team has spent a lot of time re-evaluating every aspect of the game and making it a new experience. This is not a sequel, this is not Mirror’s Edge 2. We have landed on a vision that honors the first game — pushing the boundaries of first person movement and diving deeper into the story behind our heroine Faith — but also brings a lot of great new, interesting gameplay and features to the experience for our players.”

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was also confirmed for an E3 2015 appearance in that same blog post. EA has previously indicated a Q1 2016 release for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Look for more information to come during EA’s press conference this coming Monday.

EA has revealed that its new Need for Speed game will release in Autumn this year.

Need for Speed is a full reboot of this storied franchise and will feature a large open world of urban culture car culture, driven by 5 unique ways to play and win, which the publisher describes as “Speed, Style, Build, Crew and Outlaw, enabling you to earn reputation and win your way.” 

“Need for Speed is one of the most iconic names in gaming, and we’re returning it to greatness in this reboot,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer at Ghost Games. “Pulling on our 20 years of history, and then taking a year out from releasing a game, we are making the game we’ve always wanted to.

Our own community has helped us to anchor the roots of NFS in the authentic car culture of the past and up to the present with the emerging trends in the urban engine scene,” added EA via the PS Blog, although that’s about all.

More will be revealed at E3 this year.

Authentic Customization: Allowing you to build a car that reflects your character through visual and performance customisation.

Yesterday Dice revealed a new location for Star Wars: Battlefront in the shape of Sallust, a barren planet with snow, ice and volcanic lava.
StarWars Battlefront

Battlefront will ship with 12 different multiplayer maps, although there are more if you count those within the Battlefront missions. Not every map will support every mode, so you may not get to play them all in your favourite mode, whatever that may be.

Battlefront is out this November one game I can’t wait to play later this year.

The new Star Wars Battlefront will take place amid the conflicts of the original film trilogy and is scheduled for release 17th November for the US and the 20th November for the UK and the 19th November for Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Star Wars “Battlefront” will focus on frenzied shoot-outs between up to 40 players portraying Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire forces. It seems the site was even shown a demonstration of the game’s multiplayer mode, from which it describes “a team of jetpack-equipped rebels shown carving their way through the woodsy Endor while Stormtroopers charged at them on foot, on speeders and within walkers, including a hulking AT-AT war machine.

Star Wars Battlefront 1

The new game footage played today included the snowy Hoth, sandy Tatooine and gooey Sullust, a lava-spewing planet referenced in 1983’s “Return of the Jedi,” as well as many “Star Wars” games and novels.

This is from the in-game engine from the PlayStation 4 version

In Star Wars Battlefront won’t solely be centred on expendable ground troops, but will also allow you to play as the likes of Boba Fett and Darth Vader on the battlefield.

Star Wars Battlefront 4

In the game can storm in as the Dark Lord himself, You can wield a lightsaber. You can Force choke the rebel scum. Basically, you are the boss of the battle. This means that you, as Vader, can lead your team to victory if you play well.

The most exciting part for us is that you’ll be able to take part in dogfights with TIE Fighters, X-wings and the Millennium Falcon.

You can get into these vehicles, from speeder bikes to X-wings, TIE fighters, AT-STs, AT-ATs. There’s a wide range of vehicles that we wanted to realize.

Star Wars Battlefront 6

The difficulty with a game is that they need to be balanced with the troops on the ground.

Of course, with a certain Star Wars movie set to release a month after Battlefront’s release, DICE is also being given special content related to it. The Battle of Jakku, the key battle with Imperial holdouts that takes place in the immediate aftermath of “Return of the Jedi,” will be added to Battlefront as free DLC.

Players will get to see Jakku as it was before they see it as it eventually becomes in this December’s “The Force Awakens.” Those that own Star Wars Battlefront will be able to pick this DLC up free of charge on 8th December. Anyone that takes the plunge and pre-orders will be able to pick it up a week early on 1st December.

Star Wars Battlefront 5

The forthcoming “Battlefront,” is part of a 10-year deal between the Walt Disney Co. and Electronic Arts to create new “Star Wars” games.

Star Wars Battlefront 3
