Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale game is coming to Switch this fall. The studio also announced crossplay, so people can play together whether they are on PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Switch, or PC.

The Sims 4

The Sims 4 is another big EA game that is coming to Steam. In fact, it’s available on the platform today.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.

It Takes Two

Josef Fares is making another cooperative, story-focused game. It Takes Two is about a child who deals with their parents’ divorce by creating two dolls … which both come to life.

Lost in Random

Wow, this looks cool. First off, it has a magical six-sided die that talks. It also has a bit of a Tim Burton vibe that I’m digging. Lost in Random really does look original, so it’s a great fit for the EA Originals brand.

Rocket Arena

This 3-vs.-3 arena game has shifted publishers from Nexon to EA. Think Overwatch but with more rockets.

Star Wars: Squadrons

We got our first look at gameplay for EA’s next Star Wars game, which is coming out on October 6. It includes both a solo campaign and multiplayer. Man, those cockpits are gorgeous.

EA Sports

EA showed a montage of projects that are further off. This includes a racing game from Criterion, a fantasy game from BioWare that’s probably Dragon Age 4, Dice’s next Battlefield, and an original game from Motive that includes a sort of gravity gun mechanic.

Skate 4

Skate 4 is real! We didn’t get to see the game, but at least we know it’s real! What a comeback for skating games we’re seeing.
