Come for the videos, stay for the GIFs

Electronic Arts kicked off E3 early, hosting its own EA Play event in LA and London. While it was short on major news, there were still some notable highlights! From grappling hooks to Mass Effect mysteries, from blimps to recreational drug use, enjoy EA's E3 outing.

Titanfall 2 is bringing a single-player campaign and sentient Titans to the series, and it all looks great. But the real moment of the presentation took place when one mech pilot ditched their Titan and used the grappling hook to grab another player and destroy them. It was, in Overwatch terms, the play of the game. It’s the sort of thing that most of us will likely never be able to pull off in the course of a standard match, but it shows what’s possible using the game’s new systems and was a pretty neat way to cap off an already impressive reveal.

What is "The New Colossus"?

Bethesda Softworks went old-school in kicking off its E3 2016 press briefing, starting the show with a PC bootup sequence straight out of the MS-DOS era. The screen featured a list of game titles from Bethesda's back catalog, along with their release dates, but there was one name with no date next to it: "The New Colossus."

"The New Colossus" was listed just below MachineGames' two Wolfenstein games, 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order and its prequel, 2015's Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. It appeared above the four Doom games from id Software, including this year's Doom. (You can see a screencap below.)

At this year's BE3 press conference, publisher Bethesda revealed the first gameplay for developer Arkane's anticipated Dishonored 2.

Dishonored 2 will explore Karnaca, which was created using a custom engine called the Void Engine. Dishonored 2 stars two characters — Corvo Attano, the returning protagonist and former bodyguard and agent of the dead Empress of The Empires of the Isles from the original Dishonored, along with Emily Kaldwin, daughter of the Empress and rightful heir to the throne. Each character has their own story beats and abilities, making for what Bethesda claims is very different gameplay.
