EA is bringing the Russian army and night maps to Battlefield 1, watch the first trailer

Today at E3 2017, EA announced that night maps will be coming to Battlefield 1 with Nivelle Nights coming this summer. And six new maps are coming with the In the Name of the Tsar expansion pack that focuses on the Russian front this September.

This isn’t earth-shattering news, but the additions look impressive and the trailer seemed to please the crowd during EA Play.

Madden NFL 18’s story mode is designed to be a ‘playable movie’

Devin Wade has a dream: He wants to play in the NFL. As a quarterback, to be precise. However, Devin’s not some Division I college football hotshot; he isn’t on any scout’s radar or ESPN analyst’s draft board. He’s been out of football for years — in fact, he has thought about quitting and moving on, about getting a quote-unquote real job.

College football will cameo in Madden NFL 18’s new story mode according to glimpses shown at Electronic Arts’ EA Play news conference at E3 2017. It will be the first appearance for colleges in an EA Sports video game since the label abruptly canceled its NCAA Football series in 2013 and settled a lawsuit brought by former players.

In the video shown of the story, called “Longshot,” protagonist Devin Wade has been out of the University of Texas, where he was a hotshot quarterback, and out of football for several years. Wade must struggle to prove himself to reach the NFL and fulfill his dreams.
