E3 2017 – EA Conference Reveals

The EA Conference at E3 2017 happened earlier today at 12 PM PST. Here are all the games and DLC announced.

Battleborn – Free Trial (F2P)

Battleborn has finally went F2P even though it doesn’t publicly want to announce it by calling it a “free trial”. It’s live now except for Sony Europe & Sony Japan which will become live on June 13th.

Essentially players will have access to play the multiplayer of the game with a rotating number of heroes at first. But Battleborn’s gotta make money somehow, there a paywall or grindwall behind the content of the game. Everything can be unlocked through playing the game including all the heroes and story missions through in-game credits or you can just buy it.

The multiplayer isn’t too appealing because balancing is such an issue when you have 30 characters, each having multiple skills and on top of that an equipment system that has randomized stats and tiers.

Personally, I don’t think Battleborn going F2P at this point will save it from it’s eventual demise even though it’s not half bad but unfortunately it might just end up like Evolve.

There’s just too much multiplayer fps on the market currently. Paladins is in Xbox’s most played games list whilst Battleborn isn’t and Battleborn on steam’s stats don’t bold well at all. The only glimmering of hope seems to be on PS4.

 

Gears of War 4 – Launch Trailer

Today, Xbox released the Gears of War 4: Launch Trailer revealing old man Marcus and Cole Train (WHOO) and also their… pre-order bonus and the 4 days early access that comes with purchasing the ultimate edition, pretty much a season pass.

A new saga begins for one of the most acclaimed video game franchises in history. After narrowly escaping an attack on their village, JD Fenix and his friends, Kait and Del, must rescue the ones they love and discover the source of a monstrous new enemy.

Other Announcements

Call of Cthulhu

Today, Focus Home Interactive announced another new title that’s going to be at E3, Call of Cthulhu.  Call of Cthulhu is a horror friction story game based on Chaosium’s pen & paper RPG.

In Call of Cthulhu, players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in Darkwater Island. The game’s E3 Trailer showcases this disturbing Island and the eerie Hawkins Family Mansion, and gives a glimpse at how the intensity of the investigation will slowly start chipping away at your Sanity.

Insanity and the Cthulhu Mythos have long been entwined – as your investigation brings you closer to Cthulhu’s sphere of influence, madness will progressively engulf your senses, leaving you to increasingly question what is real and what is illusory. They say that madness is the only way that can bring you to the truth and you will have to balance your sanity against your determination to discover it!

The Cthulhu Mythos has grown to become one of the largest shared universes ever envisioned, giving birth to countless stories, novels, and even movies ever since the original publication of Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu.
