Electronic Arts E3 2016 Conference: Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer, also FIFA might be an RPG now

E3 2016 is upon us! It's that time of year when we lower our standards and spend hours watching trailers for games we don't care about so we can make fun of them. And what better way to begin than with the Electronic Arts press conference? This year, amidst the Titanfalls and the Battlefields and the EA Sports and the Star Wars, there was another Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer. Andromeda was originally supposed to come out this year, but then it got delayed to Q1 2017 (something which may or may not be related to a mysterious string of departures from developer BioWare Montreal earlier this year).

So here's the trailer, which features all sorts of, uh, intergalactic stuff. There's Makos, Thresher Maws, weird-looking Asari, and what appears to be be the new Mass Effect strong female protagonistâ„¢. It seems kind of raw, to be honest. I wonder if the game isn't going to end up getting delayed again.


Besides that, there was also a video about the numerous unannounced Star Wars games EA's various studios are currently working on. Notably, BioWare veteran James Ohlen made an appearance, hinting but not quite confirming that BioWare might someday make another Star Wars game that isn't an expansion for The Old Republic MMO.

Oh, and FIFA 2017 has a Story Mode now. It's got emotionally engaging cinematics. And a dialogue wheel. No, I'm not kidding. Heck, this might end up having more stats than Mass Effect.
