Electronic Arts just announced three new games under its EA Originals indie label. The games include Rocket Arena, It Takes Two, and Lost in Random.
To bring the games to market, EA is partnering with indie studios Final Strike Games, Hazelight Studios, and Zoink. Here are some more details on the new indie games that are coming out in 2020 and 2021.
Rocket Arena is a newly evolved cross-play hero arena shooter where players and teams master the art of the rocket through a roster of diverse heroes, customizable playstyles, and highly competitive action. It introduces new blast and recovery mechanics, powerful rocket launchers that can be used in combat or to propel heroes around the map, and signature character abilities to create a completely new shooter experience.
The game will also feature regular seasonal events packed with free content, including new heroes, maps, and in-game events. The first season kicks off July 28, just two weeks after launch. Players can experience Rocket Arena on July 14, 2020 when the game launches with crossplay on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin and Steam.
It Takes Two
It Takes Two is the next IP from the critically-acclaimed Stockholm-based studio behind A Way Out. Hazelight Studios aims to deliver a visionary game that reinvents the genre, taking players on a wild and wondrous adventure together. Launching in 2021, Josef Fares outlines his vision for the title as a uniquely varied co-op game that takes audiences through an emotional journey in a fantastical world.
Lost in Random
Lost in Random is a gothic fairytale action-adventure with a modern message. As another new IP set in a twisted dystopia where uncertainty and chaos are feared, the game follows a courageous young girl and her living dice companion, Dicey. Together, the two embark on a perilous journey where they learn to embrace the unknown and play the hand they’ve been dealt. Players can play Lost in Random in 2021 when the game releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Origin and Steam.
