So the EA conference is underway. They've just announced a Russian Front expansion for BF1 called In The Name of the Tsar. It, err, looks like BF1 with snow.

Now it's Fifa 18. Some people are kicking a ball. There are annoying men who I think are meant to be celebrities talking about the men kicking the ball.

Now it's Need for Speed Payback. They've got a Youtube "creator" on and he's stumbling through his sentences like he's been in a car accident. Appropriate I suppose.

Next up was A Way Out, a prison break simulator that appears to be playable only in co-op. Probably means the AI they tried it with was rubbish.

"Entertainment will change more in the next 5 years than it did in the previous 45."

Proceeds to show Madden in 4k.

Next up is NBA 2018. Obviously when talking about changing entertainment he was referring to other companies.

They showed approximately 10 seconds of slow motion footage. Apparently it was big news.

Next up was an actual trailer. Your performance in matches wins you new shoes. I'd have thought they'd be provided really.

Here comes the promised half hour of Battlefront 2. They're really talking up the new story mode. As expected it's set between episodes 6 and 7.

Three times the content of Battlefront. Starfighter assault mode. Content from all eras. There's a class system now. It sounds like they've dropped that awful pickup system for heroes.

Ok, this looks excellent. Droids and clone troopers fighting in the streets of Theed on Naboo, following hover tanks, fighters flying overhead, Darth Maul fighting Yoda....

Now a proper looking space battle in an asteroid field.

There're going to be Finn and Captain Phasma heroes, as well as the new planet from episode 8. Free updates (called seasons), no season pass. Beta coming in Autumn for pre-orderers.

Oh dear, somebody hit the wrong button and we got more NBA. Sadly NBA players won't be one of the playable classes.

They keep cutting to people in fighters who can't fly. It's Battlefront alright!

Darth Maul is fighting alongside Boba Fett. Not Jango, Boba. THIS IS NOT CANON. WORST GAME EVER.

I think they've got the voice actors from the Clone Wars / Rebels series. They're probably more relevant than the ones from the films now.

Rey makes a brief appearance, and gets taken down by a single battle droid. Han Solo shows up and gets taken down by Darth Maul; they're not even trying anymore.

The Battlefront 2 stuff was at least a decent reveal, rather than it being a thirty-second trailer.

But yeah; the reliance on Youtube "stars" was bloody annoying. As a press conference it was just awful; the only new game (to my knowledge) was the prison escape one, everything else was an iterative sports game that they kept praising as being all new and revolutionary. Battlefront 2 looked good, but frankly it's nothing new either.

But then it's EA. When was the last time EA did something new and innovative? They teased a new franchise from Bioware, but that won't be shown until the Microsoft conference, and from the extremely brief teaser they showed, it basically looks like Halo meets Jurassic Park. Could be fun, could be derivative rubbish.
