EA Play Live 2021 - roundup - Dead Space remake announced
EA is here to be the last remaining major player revealing their future plans this summer. While they bowed out of showing anything in June, EA has a whole lineup of titles to showcase in their annual event, which we'll cover here, summarizing the hour-long stream.
A game about complete randomness, or at least, where life is determined by dice rolls, is the first thing EA has to show. It has a very Tim Burton-esque art style. It's called Lost in Random.
Codemasters is the latest acquisition of EA, with the studio showing us what they've got in store for their racing sims. Grid: Legends is their latest game. and it'll have tons of different cars to race, whether it's big trucks or sporty racecars, and varied racers to play as and against. The team is hyping their story mode.
Apex Legends is next. What's next? Emergence. A new hero, Seer, has drones that can track enemies, and brand new abilities. He's a stealthy legend, and can avoid detection if you move slowly. Ranked Arena mode will also be coming soon.
Lost in Random gets another feature, in which you get to see its gameplay, which has some 3D platformer elements. The combat system is third person action, with cards that can randomize how you fight against enemies.
Knockout City is getting a Season 2. There's new maps, rewards, skins, and more, with a launch on July 27th.
Battlefield 2042 will have three important modes, with the newest one focused on community feedback, all defined by the player's rules. The mode is called Portal, and appears to let you make your own custom matches with elements from all the Battlefield games of the past. You'll be able to share your custom game modes, too.
Finally, Dead Space is getting a remake, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It only got a short teaser, but the game has been confirmed.
