This summer Electronic Arts Games Label is ready to release eight action-packed titles from seven of the world's most critically acclaimed development studios including BioWare, Criterion, DICE, EALA, Maxis and Pandemic as well as EA partner Harmonix Music Systems.

Between May and September, EA's offerings will appeal to the explorer, adventurer, action junkie, creator and rock star.

Mike Quigley, Group VP of Global Marketing, EA Games Label said, "If you need a break from GTA IV, or if you're looking for more than just the one or two great summer movies on tap, the EA Games Label is stepping up with eight huge summer titles. The incredible diversity of the title line-up reflects the talent range of our studios and partners. Big FPS action, amazing adventures, epic sci-fi fantasy or rock star reality - these are the summer entertainment experiences people will love."

Battlefield: Bad Company
Battlefield: Bad Company drops gamers behind enemy lines with a squad of renegade soldiers who risk it all on a personal quest for gold and revenge. Featuring intense multiplayer action as well as a deep, cinematic single-player experience loaded with adventure and humor, the game delivers the Battlefield series' trademark sandbox gameplay in a universe where nearly everything is destructible.

Burnout Paradise
Following the launch of Burnout Paradise for the Playstation3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system in January, EA Criterion is continuing to support the game's players throughout the year by delivering significant, game-changing content and regular broadcast activities. The first game-changing content will be coming to the PlaystationStore and Xbox LIVE Marketplace in June free to download. This will include 3 all-new online game modes (Road Rage, Marked Man, and Stunt Run), 70 new multi-part, timed Freeburn challenges and 7 new cars, instantly adding many hours of additional gameplay. Also being introduced is a new "Live" Global Paradise news system where players will be able to receive the most up-to-date information on the game and a schedule of upcoming online events, and the much requested custom soundtrack support for the Playstation3. This is to bring the community of Burnout players together with the makers of the game to create a social online gaming experience that evolves throughout the year.

Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath
Command & Conquer is coming to the Xbox 360 this summer, with the revolutionary all-new CommandStick, a control system that simplifies the console RTS experience for new and hardcore RTS gamers alike. A follow up to last year's critically acclaimed Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath for Xbox 360 includes all the units, structures, and powers from Tiberium Wars, a deep storyline campaign told through the series' trademark HD video cinematics, six diverse new sub-factions, giving players no less than nine armies to choose from, and all-new game-changing Epic Units. The Xbox 360 version also includes over 50 multiplayer maps and the 360-exclusive Kane's Challenge mode, where players will battle through over 80 matches versus a gauntlet of deadly sub-faction leaders. Best of all for 360 gamers, Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath features a full complement of 1000 achievement points - all for $39.99.

Mass Effect
As the first BioWare/Electronic Arts title, players take on the role of Commander Shepard as they set out to save the galaxy from imminent destruction. Wrought with treachery, heroism and difficult decisions, Mass Effect features a compelling storyline and a universe filled with unique creatures. Originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2007, Mass Effect has won over eighty awards globally including several ‘Game of the Year' nods. Fully optimized for the PC, Mass Effect features higher resolution graphics, the ability to map biotic powers to ‘hot keys', a new decryption mini-game, an enhanced inventory system and fast loading times. PC gamers are now able to control their individual squad mates with the new Tactical Heads-Up Display, allowing for deeper and more efficient control during combat.

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
The first rule for Mercenaries is: Everyone pays. But when sleazy Venezuelan Industrialist Ramon Solano breaks this simple rule, it is no longer about business; it is about payback, Mercs style. Mercenaries 2: World in Flames delivers over-the-top action, big explosions and world-class production values in a fully destructible, beautifully detailed Venezuela.

The game challenges players to put together a band and tour for fame and fortune - all while learning to master lead/bass guitar, drums and vocals. Featuring the most master recordings of any music game ever by the world's biggest rock artists, Rock Band includes tracks that span every genre of rock ranging from alternative and classic rock to heavy metal and punk. The Wii version will feature 63 songs including five bonus songs for the Wii. Rock Band is developed by Harmonix, published by MTV and distributed by EA.

Spore Creature Creator
In anticipation for the launch of Spore in September, the Spore Creature Creator gives Spore fans, and anyone who is creatively curious, a first hands-on opportunity to design their own species and share it with their friends. All creatures designed with the Spore Creature Creator can be imported into the full version of Spore. The free demo version of the Spore Creature Creator will be available worldwide via download from www.spore.com . The free demo lets players shape, paint and play with an unlimited number of creatures, using 25% of the creature-making parts from Spore. People can then share these creations with their friends, including seamless uploads to YouTube. The demo will also be included in the The SimCity Box, which ships on June 23.

Spore
Get ready for the next Big Bang this fall! Spore, the highly anticipated game from the creators of The Sims, gives players their own personal universe in a box. Create and evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations, sculpt entire worlds and explore a universe created by other gamers. Spore gives players a wealth of creative tools to customize nearly every aspect of their universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even UFOs. Players can then seamlessly share their creations with the world or explore infinite new galaxies created by other people.

They went back on that a bit after being stampeded by the backlash. As long as it doesn't 'phone home' like some sort of pseudo-malware crap I'm happy.

Um... Kane's Wrath is already for purchase in BB and Target. Get both the game and Kane's for, I think, $59.99.

Oh yeah, this is PC, BTW.
