EA will be continuing to be holding their own press events with the EA Play press conference, running from June 9th to June 11th opting to forgo attending E3. EA Play will start at 11 am PDT on June 9th at the Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles. As in previous years, EA will livestream and provide updates from their event across EA.com, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram throughout the days. The press conference will consist of showcasing gameplay from several games, interviews with developers and much more.
EA Play Press Event June 9th – 11th
What games will they be showing off this year? EA stated on their blog post:
The next Battlefield, Anthem and some of your favorite EA SPORTS games will all have big reveals during the show. You won’t want to miss it.
So this means we could be previewing about 8 games:
- New Battlefield
- New EA Sports
- New Sims
- New Mobile Games
While I don’t play most of EA games, I want to see how Anthem has come along since it’s first debut. Considering Destiny 2 was a complete failure, Anthem has a good chance to redeem them if it doesn’t repeat the same mistakes the developers Bungie made. Who knew not fixing launch bugs, not properly play-testing anything and having a complete lack of an endgame would turn players off. Anthem is on my “let’s see how it shapes up” list and I hope EA really delivers at EA Play.
