Given the leading soccer, football, and basketball titles are always among the top selling games in both North America and worldwide their high-profile presence should come as no surprise.

Madden NFL 18, FIFA 18, and NBA Live 18 all were prominently featured in this weekend’s EA Play press briefing. Madden had the full reveal of its new story mode to be known as “Long Shot” which has some colleges and big actors involved, FIFA had a look at its sequel to “The Journey” story mode along with some gameplay improvements, and NBA Live introduced a Career Mode called “The One” through its dual trailers.
