FeatureThe big BioWare interview: the response to Anthem, and the future of Mass Effect

"For players who want this to be a traditional BioWare game, that is part of the game."

BioWare's ambitious Anthem was the highlight of EA's E3 2018 press conference - although that was hardly a tough bar to clear. We gained our best look yet at BioWare's shared world full of jetpacking players in mechs, angry monsters and mysterious god energy - but some BioWare fans watching felt like the gameplay shown did not align with their own, personal expectations of what a BioWare game should be.

The least interesting thing about Assassin's Creed Odyssey is its October 2018 release date, but the timing of another massive game in the series just 12 months after Assassin's Creed Origins will generate headlines regardless. Origins' success - its brilliant new characters and reworked RPG-lite focus - is something of a double-edged sword: these changes reinvigorated the series, but by taking an extra year of time to bed them in Ubisoft reinforced the feeling each installment could offer the same leaps forward, if only the publisher leant on its biggest franchise a little less. It's against this backdrop Odyssey has been detailed and its release date confirmed - but I'm confident, after more than three hours of gameplay, this year's installment answers those immediate questions.

"People think it was because I was scared, or nervous," Martin Sahlin says. We're playing Unravel 2 together in a small room backstage at EA Play, just after his on-stage appearance to announce the game and its surprise release to the world. It's three years almost to the day since Sahlin made his E3 debut - when he introduced the original Unravel in a humble, grateful presentation which endeared himself and his creation to the world. "But it was actually just joy," Sahlin continues. "It was one of the happiest moments of my life."

Charming yarn-based puzzle platformer Unravel is getting a sequel, perhaps unsurprisingly named Unravel 2. More surprisingly, though, it is available today.

Destiny 2 is changing the way you pay for content

"There will be additional D2: Forsaken product options unveiled later."

Bungie detailed Forsaken, Destiny 2's big September expansion, during a livestream last night, which also introduced fans to the concept of the series' first Annual Pass.
