What Time Is EA's E3 2018 Press Conference

What Time Is EA's E3 2018 Press Conference

During EA Play 2018, EA saved the best for last. The event will commence with a press conference at 11:00 PM PT / 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, June 9th, where the publisher will show off all of the games it has in store for the coming months.

One of EA's most anticipated games got its fair share of time in the spotlight today during its EA Play conference, with the publisher dedicating nearly 20 minutes to a deep-dive into the mechanics and gameplay of Anthem.

Kicking off E3 2018 is Electronic Arts with more information on its big games for 2018, including Battlefield V and Anthem.

You can choose which type of experience you want to have as a pilot each time before you head into the world to start a gameplay session by choosing which Javelin you would like to play as.

Moreover, EA stated that the game will not feature any loot boxes.


In an audience Q&A, the Bioware team behind the game teased a kind of central hub world where single-player story and character interactions will take place as well as a larger open area for co-operative combat missions.

Oddly enough, BioWare has announced in a full cover story with Game Informer that the game will not feature any romantic relationships between players. While no screens or clips were shown, during a casual conversation, the game's producer revealed that Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will be set between Episode III and IV. That's a big difference from its key rivals, Destiny and The Division, which have both had a PvP mode in all their releases so far (though there's a lot we don't yet know about The Division 2). As humanity is fractured, it struggles to live on in harsh, unforgiving environments that they can navigate only with exosuits called Javelins.

Continuing to invest in its EA Originals indie publishing initiative, EA revealed a striking-looking new indie game. More's the pity. Citadel was ace, though, so if there's a breath of that sort of camaraderie in Anthem we might get to enjoy some of that BioWare magic after all.

The highly anticipated action title is set for release on February 22, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

In case you weren't aware, Anthem has four Javelins available: Ranger, Colossus, Storm, and Interceptor.
