E3 is well and truly underway with the EA Play conference kicking things off on Saturday evening, and it's fair to say that the show was, well, a bit of a mixed bag. The event will commence with a press conference at 11:00 PM PT / 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, June 9th, where the publisher will show off all of the games it has in store for the coming months.

Most of the new images for Anthem showcase the four distinct Javelin exosuits that players will be able to control.

In an audience Q&A, the Bioware team behind the game teased a kind of central hub world where single-player story and character interactions will take place as well as a larger open area for co-operative combat missions. 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. While the game looked gorgeous in its new trailer, EA recently released a new set of screenshots for the game that further highlights the handsome graphics.

EA debuted a new subscription service at EA Play, which is their answer to Xbox Game Pass. Details are light on the ground, but it will be an upgrade on Origin Access and give players access to new EA game from day one for a subscription fee.

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.

Simona Halep, Sloane Stephens in French Open women’s final
She was the clear favourite previous year as well to beat Ostapenko and (somehow) managed to find a way to lose. Muguruza's last stand came at 4-all in the second set, a 13-minute game in which she held three break points.

While you can play solo, you will need an online connection to play.

They will also get early access to Madden 19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Battlefield V and Anthem. More's the pity. Citadel was ace, though, so if there's a breath of that sort of camaraderie in Anthem we might get to enjoy some of that BioWare magic after all.

Anthem will release on February 22, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. 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. More so when you consider that EA doesn't really have any big games slated for that time of the year.

In addition to this, the game will not have loot boxes or pay-to-win items.
