Details continue to emerge concerning the titles and products being shown by major publishers exhibiting at E3, with THQ and Electronic Arts unveiling their line-up for the show. THQ’s portfolio is led by previously unseen PC/Xbox 360 titles Company of Heroes and Titan Quest, as well as highly anticipated current generation console titles such as Juiced, Destroy All Humans!, MotoGP 3 and the sequel to Full Spectrum Warrior. The company’s licensed titles will include The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer, Tak: The Great Juju Challenge, SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, PANTS!, Scooby-Doo! Unmasked and Bratz: Rock Angelz. THQ also indicated that it will be supporting the next-generation Xbox by showcasing Xbox 360 games from Relic Entertainment and Volition, though it hasn't yet announced exactly what these titles will be. Electronic Arts’ line-up will include Need For Speed: Most Wanted, the console versions of The Sims 2, PC expansion pack The Sims 2 Nightlife, Battlefield 2 (both PC and consoles), Medal of Honor: European Assault, Burnout Revenge and GoldenEye: Rogue Agent for the Nintendo DS. This is in addition to the previously announced The Godfather, From Russia with Love, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Batman Begins and Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. The company’s usual sports updates will also be on show, including NCAA Football 05 and Madden NFL 06 (both now using exclusive licenses), and NASCAR 06. The intriguing Criterion-developed first person shoot ‘em-up Black will also be on show, as will a large range of new mobile titles using many of the company’s most famous brands. Of perhaps greatest interest, though, is the promise of an invitation-only 'Next Gen Lab', where next-generation titles will be shown in greater detail than on the show floor. Spore, the latest game from The Sims creator Will Wright will also only be shown behind closed doors, following its debut at GDC this March.
