In 2016 EA decided to move away from the massive gaming convention E3, in favor of hosting their own event called EA Play. Today we’ve received news that there will once again be another event.

Phil Spencer’s date with destiny began when his father brought home a Sinclair ZX81. Together, they’d play and create games. On stage at the 21st Annual DICE Awards, Spencer appeared wistful as he recalled the fearsome monsters of Ultima Online, and credited the MMORPG for being the first to create a genuine feeling of immersion. He revealed his imagination was captured not by “people in history, but what people have built together and accomplished together” — virtual worlds included. Spencer has stuck with this vision in his role as Xbox Chief:
Codemasters is probably best known for realistic racing games like Grid Autosport, the Dirt series, and yearly F1 releases. Onrush is something a little different. It’s not quite Micro Machines, but it really seems to zero in on arcade flavours rather than straight-up simulation. Game Director Paul Rustchynsky believes this is something that’s missing in today’s console marketplace. He says “gamers are crying out for” an arcade hero. Onrush seeks to fulfil that role not with a cape, but with sick nitro boosts, blazing fast battles, and antics so jaw-dropping Houdini’s eyes would pop out.
