Electronic Arts (EA) held the second major event of Monday's pre-E3 2012 press conference revealing their upcoming titles in LA's Orpheum Theatre. A combination of great trailers with amazing graphic real-time gameplays, the show was quite a success. Here's a rundown of all the game titles revealed by them at this edition of E3:

Dead Space 3 (PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)

This installment boasts of a new co-op campaign as well as a new playable character that will be named John Carver. From the first gameplay trailer, one sees a new frost planet of Tau Volantis, where the two protagonists have crash landed, digresses from the usual inside-starship fighting which will be the scene for at least a portion of the fighting with large beetle like creatures. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague for good, but first the team must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness in order to save the earth from an imminent armageddon. The trailer's ending was typical Dead Space style with main protagonist Isaac Clarke being eaten by a large red insect and showing his effort to fight against the insect's digestive elements and his fate left uncertain. Dead Space 3 releases in February 2013.

SimCity Social (Facebook)

With the new socially interactive experience you can build houses, skyscrapers, and other structures. Run the city on proper environmental principles, fostering informed and passionate citizens, who have the ability to both be peaceful and protest violently. With many obstacles like crime, fire-hazards, monster and alien invasions, this new game offers a social experience like never before in which one can share with your friends in real-time.

You can adapt with the stealth, armor and thermal abilities of your unique Nanosuit to save a CELL infested New York City. The first gameplay trailer revealed more action with the composite bow, which seemed to be precise and inflict heavy damage, grooving to the eerie soundtrack which we all know Crysis for.
