Electronic Arts already unveiled the majority of their E3 2011 lineup earlier this month. But the megapublisher wasn’t done and has a few more titles to add to their expanding slate of games.
The big news, confirmed by the developer’s Twitter feed, is that Insomniac’s PS3/Xbox 360 game will make its worldwide debut during EA’s E3 press conference (Monday, June 6 at 3:30 PM Eastern Time).
A trio of other games will also be on hand at this year’s E3 Expo including The Sims 3: Pets (3DS, PC, PS3, Xbox 360); Curt Schilling’s Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (PC, PS3, Xbox 360); and NHL 12 (PS3, Xbox 360).
More information on these games (and a full listing of EA’s E3 lineup) can be found after the break.

The Sims 3: Pets (3DS, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
Street Date: Fall 2011
The Sims 3 Pets comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo 3DS and PC/Mac this fall. The Sims 3 Pets enables anyone to play as they want, whether it’s the builder who prefers to customize their Sim to match their pet, the achiever who tries to gain the most Lifetime Rewards, the experimenter who wants to wreak havoc in their Sims lives or the storyteller who captures and shares their stories with their friends. For the first time in franchise history, players will be able to fully control their pets and determine their personality traits. Unique to the console experience, players will use their pets to help their Sims uncover and solve mysteries around town. Exclusively for the Xbox 360, players with Kinect can issue voice commands to their pets and Sims. The Nintendo 3DS takes advantage of the hardware’s built-in pedometer that tracks players’ real life movements. On the PC/Mac version, players now have the opportunity to adopt horses where they’ll be able to use their horse as a form of transportation to get around town and also raise and train them to do activities like race and jump hurdles. In The Sims 3 Pets, players will be able to create, control and play with life with their pets.
