Electronic Arts took the stage just moments ago at E3 2013 in Los Angeles, CA to reveal some brand new games coming to current- and next-generation platforms! Without further ado, here's what EA revealed:

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

Paying homage to the Call of Duty's and Battlefield's of the world, PvZ: Garden Warfare is a third-person action game set in the wildly popular Plants vs Zombies universe. The game is a hilarious, light-hearted take on tower-defense/shooter hybrids that appears to be powered by Frostbite 3?

Making the trip from the Xbox One event to the Electronic Arts conference, Vince Zampella from Respawn Entertainment revealed some more footage of Titanfall, their debut game published by EA. This time around, however, they showed off a bit of behind-the-scenes footage as well.

Star Wars: Battlefront


Battlefield 4

Commander Mode played central stage with Battlefield 4's presentation, where Dice GM Karl Troedsson announced that you can play as Commander on your tablet as well as in-game.

Even better, DICE gave us our first taste of Battlefield 4 multiplayer - 64 players on PC. Commander Mode looks great, with Troedsson issuing commands to his squad and delivering some much-needed heavy artillery when they are under attack from some tanks. Hopefully the studio will release a gameplay video from their presentation today, we will update this post if that is the case.

Mirror's Edge 2

While not really a shooter, Mirror's Edge 2 is played from the first-person perspective so here it is; DICE officially announced what most of us were expecting, Mirror's Edge 2 is currently in development and coming to next-generation consoles in 2014.
