EA to reveal more on FIFA 14 and Star Wars at E3
EA has said it plans to reveal more on FIFA 14 and its Star Wars games in the works during E3 next month.
According to a blog post from EA labels president Frank Gibeau, the firm’s EA press conference will showcase “next-generation games like Battlefield 4, Need For Speed, a full range of EA Sports games,” as well as a first look at its plans for the Star Wars partnership with Disney.
Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore told Bloomberg yesterday that we “might see something about,” the Star Wars announcement during the presser, so this confirms some sort of news on that front will be revealed.
Yesterday, during the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen teased the firm may possibly revisit the Star Wars: Battlefront IP.
During his chat with Bloomberg, Moore also called FIFA Ultimate Team “the gold standard” on which the firm builds its digital content on top of packaged goods, stating more will be announced on the game and its Ultimate Team exclusivity with Xbox One at E3.
From what we saw of the game yesterday, the Xbox One version will feature integration with the new and improved Kinect, a system Moore said EA has supported from the start, and is constantly looking at ways to include new forms of movement and hand gestures with its Kinect integrated titles.
