The movie unveil was part of a larger announcement in which EA showed off Need for Speed Rivals, a game which glorifies the heat of competition in the legendary rivalry of cops and racers. Gamers play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences.

 

 

This time, the stakes are at their highest as racers put their Speed Points on the line and risk losing them all if busted. Developed on the advanced Frostbiteā„¢ 3 engine, Need for Speed Rivals also introduces the revolutionary All Drive system that erases the line between single player and multiplayer, automatically connecting gamers to their friend's racing world. Paths will cross on the open road, creating a world where no two moments will ever be the same.

FIFA 14 brings stadium and players to life on Xbox One and Playstation 4

E3 2013 - Possibly the hottest sports gaming franchise in the world right now is FIFA, and EA did not disappoint with its FIFA announcement at this afternoon's press conference at the E3 Expo. The company says that FIFA 14 will feel alive with players who think, moved and behave like world-class athletes.

 

 

 

This is all made possible through EA's IGNITE engine which is able to blend the best rendering, runtime physics, animation, intelligent, locomotion, and online systems into one powerful ecosystem to fuel the next generation of sports games.

EA says that for the first time ever, fans will feel the electricity of the living Stadium, and experience the majesty of the world's greatest soccer theaters. Players now have four times the decision-making ability in the current generation of players in the current FIFA, which enables each player to have "Pro Instincts" which EA defines as humanlike reactions, anticipation, and instincts.

EA shows off Battlefield 4 multiplayer footage at E3, makes CoD Ghost look like old school Counter Strike

E3 2013 - During the Microsoft and EA press conferences today at the E3 Expo, game developer DICE showed off its flagship FPS, Battlefield 4, in both single player and online multiplayer modes. As one of the biggest Battlefield fans in the world I cannot express in words the excitement I am feeling for Battlefield 4.

 

 

During the Microsoft event dice showcased "Angry Sea" a stunning display of how the new Sea warfare mode in battlefield for might play out. While during the EA press conference DICE showed off a 64 person online multiplayer demo that was played by 64 actual participants on stage. Dubbed the "Siege of Shanghai" it unveiled several new dynamics to the game. Players are now able to use elevators to reach various levels of buildings, and even level entire skyscrapers for a truly destructive environment.

 

 

First EA is bringing back Battlefield Commander Mode, which is similar to the Commander mode featured in Battlefield 2, but is much more dynamic and only gives you the resources available based on your team. Possibly one of the coolest features of Commander Mode is that it can be utilized through your touchscreen mobile device such as a tablet. In my opinion this brings in an entirely new dynamic, and is the new technology needed to take the Battlefield series to the next level.

Leaked E3 trailer to Watch Dogs will have you throwing money at your screen

We're just hours away from E3 starting but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy some leaked trailer goodness now, does it? One of which is the game at the top of my most wanted list, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs.

 

 

The trailer isn't in-game footage, but it does set the pace for the game and what it is all about. It has a great feel to it, and I'm pretty sure that everything that is done in the trailer is capable of being done in the game. It truly is a no holds barred trailer, and something you need to watch right now.

Fable III free on Xbox Live right now

While surfing Xbox Live tonight, a friend of mine noticed that Fable III is available for download for the sweet sweet price of $0.00. That's right it's 100 percent free! First released in October 2010, Fable III has sold more than 3 million copies.

For those unfamiliar with the game, the story focuses on the player character's struggle to overthrow the King of Albion by forming alliances and building support for a revolution. After a successful revolt, the player becomes the monarch and is tasked with attempting to defend Albion from a great evil.

Nintendo to skip holding press conference at E3, CEO says not important anymore

Nintendo has decided to skip holding a press conference at E3 this year citing the rise of social media marketing. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Amie spoke directly to fans in a video posted on Facebook saying that "change can make people nervous."

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30924_1_nintendo_to_skip_holding_press_conference_at_e3_ceo_says_not_important_anymore.jpg

 

He went on to add that "people are wondering how we can possibly share information about all our games without all the bells and whistles of an expensive press conference." He said that the company plans to promote itself on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube during E3.

 

The company will hold a Nintendo Direct Conference on June 11 at 7AM PT, which will be followed by a steady stream of content ranging from developer interviews, game trailers, and wrap-up videos.

 

The only thing we are left wondering is what is Nintendo thinking? The entire tech media world will be focused on E3, which leaves little coverage room for the slowly sinking company. Maybe that is their plan since Wii U sales are flat-lining and the company has no interesting announcements to share at the Expo.
