Our cynical sense is tingling at the following link.
E3 is upon us. EAâ€™s announcements are already off the table and that wasnâ€™t all too fulfilling for us so weâ€™re hoping the next few days have a little more meat on the bones. We have a bit of a recap for EAâ€™s event here but there just wasnâ€™t that much to bite into. Even with Anthem being less than a year away they gave us very little on that game. The gameplay shown was edited video. How do you form a team? How do you find other players? Can we fast travel to locations on a map? Movement is flying, it seems, but are there vehicles that can also get us around? Howâ€™s the in-game economy work? What do we get when we defeat enemies? How do we obtain new weapons or armor? They answered a lot of questions but very little of those questions had to do with how the gameplay works but more how the game works. Thereâ€™s no PVP, thereâ€™s no lootboxes, itâ€™s always online, there can be a team of four, you can go underwater, etc. They didnâ€™t sell me on the game and theyâ€™ve got less than a year to do that.
Letâ€™s hope the longer times we get from the other companies press conferences this week can show off a bit more about how a game plays and less about how a game works.
