EA Continues to Support Indie Developers With Three New Game Announcements

During EA Play Live 2020, Electronic Arts announced they will publish three new titles under their EA Original initiative. The developer working on games are Final Strike Games, Hazelight Studios, and Zoink.

The newest partnership is with Final Strike Games’ title Rocket Arena, a cross=play hero arena shooter where players and teams master “the art of the rocket.” Players can choose between a variety of heroes and customize various aspects of them. The game features new blast and recovery mechanics and rocket launcher combat. The developer plans to rollout out free content including new maps and in-game events post-launch.

“Rocket Arena is a celebration of our team’s experience and love of working on multiplayer shooters. We’re excited to have our uncompromised vision for the game be realized with the support of EA Partners and for everyone to start playing it next month.” – Kevin Franklin, Co-Founder of Final Strike Games

Rocket Arena is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Origin and Steam on July 14.

Next up, A Way Out developer Hazelight Studios revealed their newest game, It Takes Two. The game takes players on a wild adventure as they must work together to make it through by using cooperative gameplay mechanics.

It Takes Two is a crazy beautiful world, unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. We can’t wait for everyone to experience the magic of our co-op gameplay that disrupts everything gamers typically expect from a platformer game.” – Josef Fares, Founder of Hazelight

It Takes Two has a planned launch window for 2021.

Lastly, Zoink’s newest game will be Lost in Random, a gothic fairytale action-adventure. Players will find themselves in a twisted dystopia as Even, a curious young girl, accompanied by her living dice companion, Dicey. The two set out on an adventure to break the curse of random and leave nothing to chance.

“Everyone can relate to feeling helpless about juggling all the randomness and chaos that occurs in their life. With Lost in Random, we hope to transport our players to an alternate world where they can find power in that randomness.” – Klaus Lyngeled, CEO & Game Director of Zoink

Lost in Random is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Origin and Steam for a 2021 launch.
