After a no-show at E3 last month, publisher EA held an hour long show revealing new details for previously announced titles and a couple of surprises. If you missed the show, below are the biggest reveals and updates from EA Play Live 2021.

Dead Space

With rumours swirling about the internet for some time now, EA finally announced that EA Motive are remaking the much beloved survival horror title. We only have a brief in-engine teaser, but Dead Space will be hitting next-generation consoles and PC some time in the future.

Battlefield Portal

More than a just a new game mode for Battlefield 2042, Battlefield Portal is a community-driven platform where previous entries in the series collide. Players can mix up weapons, soldiers, vehicles and more from other Battlefield titles – including 2042, 1942, Bad Company 2, and BF3 – in custom modes and settings. Portal will launch alongside Battlefield 2042 on October 22.

GRID Legends

The next entry in Codemasters’ racing series fuses live-action storytelling with the usual motorsport action. Filmed using XR technology in a virtual production, the cast features high profile actors such as Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa. GRID Legends is set to launch in 2022.

Apex Legends: Emergence

Although previously announced, we now have a better look at Apex Legend’s new playable character Seer. The new cinematic teases some of their abilities, including mini-drones that fly out from their chest, and the character will launch alongside the game’s next major update on August 3. A gameplay reveal for Seer will drop on July 26.
