Anthem has been one of our most-anticipated E3 2018 games for a while, and EA obliged with a pretty good three-part look at the online RPG during its Hollywood press conference.

In addition to this, EA also announced updates for Battlefront II, a free trial for Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Madden NFL 19, NBA Live 19 information.

It'll come out simultaneously for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though it's a safe bet that EA Access and Origin Access will offer their usual Play First Trials several days earlier on Xbox One and PC respectively. The event starts at 7pm BST and we'll be bringing you everything as it happens, but what should we expect? You can customize them with the gear you earn and craft, then use them to fly, leap, and climb through a contiguous open world.

When it comes to new details being shared during EA Play, fans are hoping for a few things. Rumours had been circulating about this mode for some time, and with Call Of Duty confirming its own battle royale mode for Black Ops 4, it looks like the AAA battle royale war is very much now on.

Germany's Merkel calls for EU coordination at UN's top table
There is "no sense in papering over divisions" at June summit, German chancellor tells parliament. She said she would try to discuss differences with the US over Iran and trade tariffs with Trump.

The player character will be a freelancer, individuals uniquely suited to piloting the exosuits so prominently featured in the game. That's all we know so far, but with the game coming out holiday 2019, I'm sure we can expect to see more at next year's E3.

Star Wars Considering Star Wars Battlefront 2 launched just a year ago, we probably won't be getting a full successor any time soon, but EA is the exclusive license holder to Star Wars - if they're going to announce any new expansions for the game, now is the time.

The game many were waiting for didn't disappoint, getting the biggest showing of the conference. The game will be released on August 10 but the truly big news is that it's coming to PC. You can switch between these for any given mission, it's not a permanent choice.

One of the big questions about Anthem has always been how BioWare will fit its usual penchant for grand, player-centric stories into a multiplayer-focused experience. Depending on which javelin (the name for the Iron Man-like mech suits) you choose, you will either play as the ranger, colossus, interceptor, or storm classes.
