EA has multiple next-gen games in the works across its stable of studios, and a handful were trotted out for brief teasers in tonight’s show. First, a new Need for Speed from Criterion, which is promising dramatically reduced loading times. Next, a glimpse at an ominous crimson environment from BioWare which can only be Dragon Age. Finally, we heard about a new Battlefield game from DICE capable of epic battles at a scale and fidelity, unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
Motive New IP
EA took the time to show off a precious few moments of gameplay from a brand new IP by Motive Studios. The footage makes clear that the untitled game is still in early development, but what we see is a third-person platformer where you fly around with a jetpack and move stuff using some sort of telekinetic power.
