Electronic Arts has announced three new independent titles releasing as part of its EA Originals label.
It Takes Two is the next co-op game from Hazelight, the Stockholm-based studio behind A Way Out. Under the leadership of director Josef Fares, EA said Hazelight was “setting out to deliver a visionary game that reinvents the genre, taking players on a wild and wondrous adventure together.”
Developed by Seattle based Final Strike Games, Rocket Arena is a cross-play hero arena shooter where players use powerful rocket launchers in combat or to propel heroes around the map.
EA says the game will feature regular seasonal events, including new heroes, maps and in-game events. The game will release on July 14, with cross-play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin and Steam.
Finally, Gothenburg-based studio Zoink’s Lost in Random is described as a gothic fairytale action-adventure. The game follows Even and her living dice companion, Dicey. Together, the two embark on a journey where they must “learn to embrace the unknown and play the hand they’ve been dealt, in a bid to break the curse of Random.”
Steve Pointon, EA’s SVP of 3rd Party Content, said in a statement: “We recognized the inspiring vision, talent and innovation coming from these independent studios and how that will become amazing game experiences for our players across the world, wherever they choose to play.
“The EA Originals label is all about delighting all of our players with stunning and diverse games coming from the very best and boldest independent studios across the world and supporting that talent to help realize their vision.”
