After wowing the crowd at EA Play today with announcements about highly-anticipated titles like Battlefield V, Electronic Arts has now confirmed three new EA Originals titles by the developers of A Way Out, Fe and more. Some of these EA Originals will be playable as early as July 5 this year.
The EA Originals initiative took off with the game Unravel in 2016, and the label hasn't looked back since. It's gone from success to success with A Way Out and Fe, and now the company has released a trailer to tease some upcoming games from those very studios that it's had under its wing.
This tweet from EA and an accompanying press release put the spotlight on Jo-Mei Games, Hazelight (famous for A Way Out), Zoink! (the creators of Fe), and Glowmade — studios under the EA Originals banner who are excited to share news about previously unannounced titles. Zoink Games is working on a fantasy action adventure game called Lost in Random, which looks to combine elements of uncertainty and strategy to create a unique gameplay experience. Meanwhile, Hazelight is working on another co-operative, narrative-heavy titled which appears to be a reinvention of the formula that they perfected with A Way Out, though it has yet to be publicly named. Finally, Glowmade is working on a co-operative action roleplaying game called RustHeart which gives players a robot partner in their travels throughout a multiverse.

There are currently no firm release dates yet for the EA Originals that those three studios are currently working on, though the video footage from EA does tease the official release of Jo-Mei Games' Sea of Solitude on July 5 this year. EA has also entered into a new partnership with Velan Studios as part of this initiative to bring indie games to Origin Access and beyond, so fans of the current selection of titles will want to keep their eyes peeled for more well-known releases coming later on in the year like Frostpunk and Moonlighter. As with other games on Origin Access, these three EA Originals announced today will be playable on consoles and PC at launch.
