Come watch EA's E3 press conference with us!

Batting leadoff is Electronic Arts - the Madden Moguls, the Pelé Purveyors, the host to both Hoop Gawd and Snoop Dawg.

EA Play, EA's conference announcing their new line-up of titles, took place early on Sunday morning. The twist on this iteration is that the game will combine street ball play with actual National Basketball Association tournament action. This Russia-themed pack will include six maps, 11 new weapons and a new mode called Supply Drop.

That changes with Battlefront II, which has a new Star Wars story that is set between the events of the films Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Eight games were showcased, from a number of titles under the EA Sports branch as well as new IPs like Anthem and A Way Out. While the reveal was brief, it was revealed that the much lauded The Journey mode will be seeing Alex Hunter returning as the protagonist. For the first time ever, the new game will feature a single-player campaign. The biggest addition is the new The One mode.

Inspired by A Tale of Two Brothers, this game created to specifically be played in split-screen two player co-op, A Way Out puts you in the shoes of a pair of inmates (Vincent and Leo) who are attempting to make a break for it. Events happen in real time and total cooperation is necessary if you want to get out.
