EA made a splash at E3 earlier this yr with the reveal of A Way Out, a story-driven co-op thriller a couple of pair of convicts attempting to outlive after escaping jail. It stood in stark distinction to most of EA’s deal with service video games, and the studio behind the sport has a fairly spectacular pedigree. Thanks to a leaked EA e-mail, we could also be listening to extra about it very quickly.
With most of 2017’s video games already right here, it is time to take a look at the largest upcoming PC games.
A Reddit user claims to have been positioned on an inner mailing checklist that reveals the advertising and marketing plan for a pair of EA-published indie titles. While you’re proper to be suspicious of the supply, there’s sufficient element right here to recommend some reality to the claims. You can see the full plan here, however there are a number of explicit particulars to notice.
We’ll apparently be seeing extra of A Way Out’s central characters on December 7, which will surely recommend The Game Awards as a venue, although PSX begins simply a few days later. A reveal subsequent week doesn’t imply we’ll really be enjoying the sport anytime quickly, although, as the fabric boldly proclaims it to be “one of the most anticipated games of 2019,” which is kind of a manner off.
Notable in EA’s advertising and marketing plan is their characterization of director Josef Fares, who beforehand led Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. “Josef as a personality is a plus,” they are saying, “his passion is great, but need to watch out for controversy.” Presumably, that controversy could be one thing alongside the traces of what occurred with Sean Murray and No Man’s Sky, the place a really seen indie director made too many massive guarantees about their recreation. But by now, EA ought to most likely be used to controversy.
EA appear a bit extra involved with the opposite indie cost – the colorful action-adventure Fe. Early trailer views aren’t the place they’d like, they usually wish to flip issues round with no matter press and influencer blasts they will handle between now and the deliberate February 2018 launch date.
