To start the show off, EA brought out the big guns and gave us a look at Battlefield V set during World War 2.

The new production is a multiplayer cooperative adventure with elements of action and RPG, which stands out for its graphics, but which also immerses the players in the universe of science fiction. Through a new trailer, an on-stage developer interview, and a decent chunk of actual gameplay, we picked up a lot of new information about the game - and yes, that does finally include an actual release date. Fans also got a look at Anthems customization options, showing off the Javelin's different designs, including some from Bioware's major franchises Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

Popular strategy game Command & Conquer is also making a comeback, with a new mobile game confirmed by EA. Immediately after these reveal, GameInformer announced that Anthem is their July 2018 Issue Cover Story.

After this, EA announced a new Cloud service which enables gamers to play their "favorite titles" across a wide variety of platforms. The mech suits in the game are called Javelins, and their will be 4 classes of Javelins: the Ranger, the Storm, the Colossus and the Interceptor.

In the story of Anthem, players take control of a freelancer who is able to use the game's exosuits or "Javelins".

Destiny inspired... maybe, but there is also a heavy does of Titanfall and I don't mind saying that Anthem has jumped to being my most anticipated game.

The decision to move away from "pay-for-power" advantages comes with a backstory for the publisher, which was highly criticized after revealing the extent of microtransactions in "Star Wars: Battlefront II" previous year. Oh, but it WILL feature a battle royale mode, creatively titled Royale.

One of the most charming and sweet characters and settings in games is back, as Yarny the little creature made of string returns.
