Live: Electronic Arts E3 2013 Conference Finished

It's a strange year for Electronic Arts. The arrival of new consoles is a long-awaited transition for a lot of consumers that it will be keen to capitalise on with games like Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14, but at the same time the company is currently without a CEO and public opinion among gamers is very low. Perhaps its E3 press conference, held at the Shrine Auditorium in LA, will be an opportunity to change that. I did say perhaps. It starts at 1pm PST, which is 9pm BST / 10pm CEST.

You'll be able to follow it live here, both on video and with Eurogamer writers on both sides of the Alantic. Together, we can find out what it means to be "more human".

    Enough of the tittle tattle! Will the conference be in Fifa 14?
  • tomrich 11 months ago

    mirrors edge trailer was full of combat - could be game of throws by dice
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    @darth_paul
    "Are they paid to say xbox before the ps4" - I picked up on that too, so probably.
  • Ghibli 11 months ago

    @mal that was my constant mantra until they showed the ME2 trailer. :'(
  • darth_paul 11 months ago

    Are they paid to say xbox before the ps4
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    DICE were good after all. I won't be trusting them with BF4, but ME2 is on my watchlist for a potential lifting of EA embargo.
  • mal 11 months ago

    Ubi @ 11pm UK time, then Sony at 2amlol.
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 11 months ago

    Why is it Eurogamer gets DDoS every E3?

    Or are you ladies and gents at bandwidth capacity?
  • GhostPig 11 months ago

    Mirror's Edge 2 better be an improvement on the first.
  • Mazzle 11 months ago

    @Jack_Mc 11pm
  • huyster 11 months ago

    I'm glad all that EA crap is out of the way as hopefully they'll stay out of the Sony conference.
  • dogmanstaruk 11 months ago

  • Pandy 11 months ago

    Pretty, but I notice it was almost all combat.

  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 11 months ago

    And the building falling down, was what I expected from Battlefield 3 tbh.
  • wayn3h 11 months ago

  • Toddwjp 11 months ago

    No elevator music, letdown
  • Jack_Mc 11 months ago

    This does look nice to be fair, an evolution of the game rather than a revolution.
  • mal 11 months ago

    Funny, motion blur looks less impressive on this gameplay footage compared to the earlier 'gamplay footage'
  • feeg86 11 months ago

    There's nothing worse than watching other people play a shooter.

    We need to get E3 out of Americaland.

  • huyster 11 months ago

    What a terribly polite commanding officer.
  • Jack_Mc 11 months ago

    ooooo, thats nice.
  • Pacman8MyGhostkart 11 months ago

    Do you think he takes his pump with him wherever he goes?
  • Reckless99 11 months ago

    That's why the amount of people watching MMA increases yearly and boxing and UFC paper views are increasing in numbers. Idiot.
  • Jack_Mc 11 months ago

    He's pumped apparently.
  • Mazzle 11 months ago

    DICE pulling out some fun set pieces we like this, right?

    All that nonsense for CGI, well played EA, well played.
  • dredd97 11 months ago

    EA just don't get it do they, we want games that are fun, what's with all this marketing bullshit? just show us the games!
  • Bloobat 11 months ago

    Wow that whole EA sports presentation was a train wreck!

  • gallow 11 months ago

    Can you roll up into a ball while simultaneously pissing and shitting yourself while crying uncontrollably? Thats how I would react to be punched in the face.
  • Jack_Mc 11 months ago

    I like many fighting sports. But UFC is Americanised crap. Like how they bastardised Rugby.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    Did I just hear "most intelligent fighters" followed by "the guy was going to take me down so i took him down first"... really? #ouch.

    For a console revealing E3 event, it has been kinda bland so far.

  • Pandy 11 months ago

    Might just do Sony. I can work on three hours sleep. Probably.

    @Heironymous Seriously the bland regurgitation on other sites is a sad sight to behold. Eliie is God for punctuating this BS with her non-sequitors and snark
  • Jack_Mc 11 months ago

    Who else is sticking around for Sony at 2am? I think I might, sod work.
  • Hieronymus 11 months ago

    EG I think your servers are on fire. It breaks my heart that I have to watch the conferences on other sites
  • D_Mantis 11 months ago

    Why does sony's conference have to be at 2am. fuck you BST!!!
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    @riz23
    "Not sure I can handle EA straight after that Microsoft guff. The death knell of console gaming rings out!" - This is the 'House of Horrors' Section of E3. We have Ubi & Sony to set things right, and the Nintendo Direct for some comic relief. Everything will be fine.
  • jackhjharding 11 months ago

    Do we reckon next-gen Fifa gameplay with get a showing?
  • bencompston 11 months ago

    Thanks mazzle :)
  • riz23 11 months ago

    Not sure I can handle EA straight after that Microsoft guff. The death knell of console gaming rings out!
  • Mazzle 11 months ago

    I think I'm going to need some alcoholic refreshments if I am to make it through this next conference. Also, @bencompston 9pm
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    @richardiox
    "Mirrors Edge please EA" - Be careful what you wish for.
  • richardiox 11 months ago

    Mirrors Edge please EA
  • bencompston 11 months ago

    What time does this start uk time 9 or 10pm?
  • The_shlaaaag_returns 11 months ago

    Oh, and let's hope there are no unintentional rape jokes on stage, as opposed to what happened during the Killer Instinct demo.
  • The12thMonkey 11 months ago

    @skowhegan ah, excellent. PC version for me, even if I have to deal with that Origin nonsense...
  • ShiftBreaker 11 months ago

    So, bets are on. Mirror's Edge 2 having Multiplayer: Yes (2-1), No (2,000,000-1)
  • The_shlaaaag_returns 11 months ago

    At least now EA and DICE don't have to pretend that the footage of BF4 is running on Xbox One and not PC, unlike at Microsoft's conference.
  • skowhegan 11 months ago

    @The12thMonkey Very high!
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    Also, will be interesting to see if there's any evidence of change after Riticello's departure.
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    Much like Microsoft's conference, I'm really just here to assure myself that it's okay to keep hating.
  • mentalabhoration 11 months ago

    Is there any chance of some footage?
  • Pandy 11 months ago

    Live? For real this time?
  • seeyoshirun 11 months ago

    Oooh, EA!

    Oh wait, I just remembered what most of their games are like.
  • The12thMonkey 11 months ago

    So, any chance of some actual Dragon Age 3 info?
  • DreadedWalrus 11 months ago

    I can't wait to see a glimpse of EA's newest soon-to-be-cancelled basketball game.

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

20:17 By Robert Purchese

20:20 By Robert Purchese

Judging by BioWare team tweets, we will be seeing Dragon Age 3 today. How different will this Frostbite 3-powered game look to the previous incarnations?

20:24 By Robert Purchese

20:25 By Robert Purchese

Let's hope it looks better than that. "ENCHANTMENT."

20:26 By Robert Purchese

Of course EA's Peter Moore isn't evil...

20:26 By Robert Purchese

20:33 By Robert Purchese

EA is without a figurehead at the moment following John Riccitiello's relatively recent departure.

20:31 By Robert Purchese

20:36 By Robert Purchese

Is it finally time for a new Mirror's Edge? Will people buy it this time?

20:36 By Robert Purchese

20:38 By Christian Donlan

If you do a QR scan on Faith's tattoo, you get a link to the Ticketmaster website.

20:40 By Robert Purchese

20:42 By Robert Purchese

Will we see a new, next-generation Mass Effect game? Chawncy, Chawncy is that you?

20:44 By Robert Purchese

Yes there's a new generation of FIFA to look forward to, and it should be better looking than ever.

20:44 By Robert Purchese

20:47 By Ellie Gibson

Good evening everyone. I shall be enjoying this next part of E3 with a slice of gala pie, a small glass of Sauvignon blanc and a tangerine. How about you?

20:49 By Christian Donlan

Hello all! Continued apologies for patchy service. It's probably DDOS, although we also fiddled with the heating about an hour ago.

20:56 By Christian Donlan

@Ceelion - any chance it was Fruit Loops Dreams by Shonen Knife?

21:00 By Robert Purchese

Apparently several seats at the EA show have been reserved for LucasArts/Disney execs. Is a Star Wars announcement due?

21:02 By Ellie Gibson

Moore Moore Moore! How do you like it?

21:02 By Christian Donlan

Peter Moore! COO! (Also his job title.)

21:02 By Ellie Gibson

Suit's a bit shiny, P-Mo. Nice how it matches your beard though.

21:03 By Robert Purchese

21:04 By Christian Donlan

Hmmm.

21:04 By Christian Donlan

Show us a Hardnut and all is forgiven.

21:08 By Ellie Gibson

This looks marvellous. Not even being sarcastic. More disco balls in games I say.

21:09 By Christian Donlan

Squint and this is almost Bulletstorm.

21:10 By Christian Donlan

PopCap used to be teams of four or five people working on a project for years. I suspect that's not how this one got made.

21:10 By Christian Donlan

Peggle 2. It's an ARPG.

21:10 By Christian Donlan

Not really.

21:11 By Robert Purchese

21:11 By Christian Donlan

It's Vince Zampella! Or, by his superhero name, The Plaintiff.

21:11 By Ellie Gibson

Oh it's this guy and this game again. I was so hoping to see more of both.

21:12 By Christian Donlan

Titanfall looks more like the new PvZ game than I was expecting.

21:13 By Christian Donlan

Would the ultimate evolution of a tank need two legs?

21:14 By Robert Purchese

21:14 By Ellie Gibson

I miss Ratchet and Clank.

21:14 By Christian Donlan

If Zampella leaves the stage in an ejector seat, I will buy his game.

21:14 By Ellie Gibson

Funny old spacecatmonkey and his weird metal baby. They were great.

21:15 By Christian Donlan

Show us some ducks or we won't understand any of this tech stuff.

21:15 By Ellie Gibson

It takes a lot of guts to say "Gaming on consoles will never be the same again" while standing in front of three giant screens displaying a car, a football stadium and a war.

21:17 By Ellie Gibson

Dear EA, you have left someone's mic on backstage. I suggest none of you go to the toilet right now.

21:18 By Ellie Gibson

But has it got drivatars?

21:18 By Christian Donlan

Alldrive. Man, there goes my favourite baby name.

21:19 By Robert Purchese

21:19 By Christian Donlan

That was a rare observance of the right-of-way bit of the driving test in a racing game.

21:20 By Robert Purchese

21:21 By Robert Purchese

21:21 By Christian Donlan

People are conserving their applause for Mirror's Edge.

21:22 By Robert Purchese

21:23 By Ellie Gibson

Lovely speech delivered with all the enthusiasm of a man planning a trip to Argos.

21:23 By Robert Purchese

It's Jesse from Breaking Bad!

21:23 By Christian Donlan

This movie is headed right for the till area of an off license.

21:23 By Ellie Gibson

This trailer would be much better if the music was Madness' I Like Driving in my Car.

21:24 By Christian Donlan

It's BioWare, now lead by one of Dr Ray's failed clones.

21:24 By Christian Donlan

It's Dragon Age 3!

21:24 By Ellie Gibson

"I bought it in Primrose Hill, from a bloke, from Brazil."

21:25 By Ellie Gibson

Winter is coming! Again!

21:26 By Christian Donlan

Please let there be a Madden movie.

21:26 By Christian Donlan

It's Andrew Wilson. Hopefully with some stock tips.

21:26 By Ellie Gibson

One Eurogamer staff member who shall remain nameless just announced he is "*****ing himself" over that Dragon Age trailer.

21:27 By Ellie Gibson

EA loves the sports. Sports sports sporty sports. Come on then, show us your sports.

21:28 By Ellie Gibson

This gentleman sounds a bit cross. I suggest a nice sit down with a mug of Horlicks and The Archers omnibus.

21:28 By Christian Donlan

Which of these two men is the sportsman?

21:29 By Christian Donlan

I'm going to ask all my interviewees about dribbling from now on.

21:29 By Christian Donlan

THEY ARE REDEFINING DRIBBLING.

21:29 By Ellie Gibson

REDEFINING THE DRIBBLE.

21:30 By Ellie Gibson

DRIBBLE. REDEFINED. Welcome to the future.

21:30 By Christian Donlan

Next-gen games: the moment they announce all last-gen games were basically terrible.

21:30 By Christian Donlan

That graphic is how a renaissance artist would have depicted sainthood.

21:31 By Christian Donlan

Maybe they really have redefined dribbling.

21:32 By Christian Donlan

Onto Madden. They've given players the ability to think intelligently.

21:33 By Ellie Gibson

The day I care about EA Sports will be the day they start doing games about badminton.

21:33 By Christian Donlan

This year, John Madden goes in search of an heir.

21:34 By Christian Donlan

BTW, it looks like Dragon Age Inquisition is coming to current gen as well.

21:35 By Ellie Gibson

Breaking news: this year's Madden game will have a new cover.

21:35 By Christian Donlan

We are - ha ha - far from the Madden crowd in this country.

21:37 By Ellie Gibson

Sure, Christian, but it certainly is a Hardy perennial.

21:37 By Christian Donlan

A poetic look at Fifa there. And now it's Drake.

21:37 By Christian Donlan

Wherever Drake goes, people want to talk soccer.

21:38 By Christian Donlan

He is connected to Fifa.

21:38 By Ellie Gibson

Sir, if you really want to broaden your mind through travel, come to Catford. I do not wish to talk soccer or play FIFA.

21:38 By Christian Donlan

Is he still going out with Rihanna?

21:38 By Christian Donlan

Not Matt Bilbey.

21:39 By Christian Donlan

New innovation: pro instincts! More intelligent decisions for players.

21:39 By Ellie Gibson

MASSIVE GAMEPLAY INNOVATIONS. Square balls?

21:39 By Christian Donlan

Messi explodes out of every step apparently.

21:40 By Christian Donlan

Probably not a feeture. Ha ha.

21:41 By Christian Donlan

I'm going to leave UFC to the expert - Ellie?

21:41 By Ellie Gibson

Please tell me they're actually going to box.

21:42 By Ellie Gibson

I think it stands for Ultimate Focaccia Challenge?

21:42 By Christian Donlan

Andrew Wilson looks like the lead character model in an NCIS video game tie-in.

21:42 By Ellie Gibson

US spin-off of The Great British Bake-Off. Mary Berry goes round the mid-west checking for soggy bottoms.

21:43 By Ellie Gibson

HE DOES NOT CARE WHAT COLOUR YOU ARE. I like that he had to make that clear.

21:43 By Christian Donlan

Now you get to feel what it's like when that cage door slams closed behind you.

21:43 By Christian Donlan

EA are pioneers.

21:44 By Christian Donlan

It's a hamster simulator.

21:44 By Christian Donlan

"you want to know what it feels like to be punched in the face." SIM CITY.

21:45 By Christian Donlan

Rule of trailers - historical opening means they haven't got much material.

21:46 By Ellie Gibson

It's about time we had a trailer of some boxing with all spit going everywhere in slo-mo.

21:46 By Ellie Gibson

Sorry, a-bout.

21:47 By Christian Donlan

Emotion, immersion, and being connected.

21:47 By Christian Donlan

E3 2013 is all about Shanghai so far.

21:48 By Christian Donlan

Commander mode - a top-down view for tablets, by the looks of it.

21:49 By Robert Purchese

I'm pretty sure he said "Camaros" there, Christian - didn't he?

21:50 By Ellie Gibson

Nothing says "I'm pumped" like a middle-aged executive on stage at a games conference saying "I'm pumped".

21:50 By Robert Purchese

This looks like the metropolis level we saw in the alpha multiplayer screenshots earlier, albeit with textures this time.

21:52 By Christian Donlan

Jetski up steps: Monty invented that move.

21:53 By Robert Purchese

21:53 By Ellie Gibson

Fun fact: an estimated 42 per cent of Sweden's population watch the Eurovision song contest every year.

21:54 By Christian Donlan

War has never been so polite. "Nice!" "Thank you!"

21:54 By Christian Donlan

Cripes.

21:55 By Ellie Gibson

That means that if all 64 people on this stage are Swedish, 27 of them watched Denmark's Emmelie De Forest sweep to victory with her song Only Teardrops last month. Weeping bitter tears of enmity themselves, no doubt.

21:55 By Christian Donlan

NOW: Mirror's Edge 2?

21:55 By Robert Purchese

21:56 By Christian Donlan

Kicking people, sliding across floors. It's like she was never away.

21:57 By Christian Donlan

Coming when it's ready. That means it's going to clash with Half-Life 3?

21:57 By Ellie Gibson

New Mirror's Edge! In which our heroine must escape from the video for Kylie's Can't Get You Outta My Head.

21:57 By Robert Purchese

21:57 By Christian Donlan

Rather combat heavy for Mirror's Edge, but it's still nice to see all that white paint.

21:58 By Ellie Gibson

Seriously P-Mo, that suit. Bit too Roy Walker.

21:58 By Robert Purchese

21:58 By Christian Donlan

And to play us out, the worst piece of music ever written.

21:59 By Christian Donlan

Right! Onto Ubisoft!

22:01 By Ellie Gibson

Imagine the tension in Yves Guillemot's dressing room right now. He's splashing on some cologne, perhaps a little too much. "Doucement," says his wife, lighting a Gitane as she reclines on the chaise longue, "doucement." See you at 11pm.
