Perhaps in an attempt to make players forget about those notorious Mass Effect: Andromeda animations, publisher Electronic Arts has announced more details on their plans for this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.
First off, the dates. At the official website, EA shared that EA Play, which will take place separately at The Hollywood Palladium, will be a three-day event, kicking off on June 10, Saturday, at noon PDT and ending on June 12. You can watch the event either in person or online via live stream. If you're one of those who will be watching the event in the comfort of your couch, boxers, and bag of Doritos, EA has promised that an "an all-new broadcast experience" awaits you.
Now, onto the games. Over 140 hands-on gaming stations, demos, live music and more will available to those personally attending. Star Wars fans will get a Death Star-sized treat with the chance to play the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II, which was officially announced for the first time just last week. Attendees will also get the chance to get a hands-on experience with the next installment in the Need for Speed series. And as usual, interested players can check out EA's series of annual sports games that all feel no different from previous installments: Madden NFL 18, FIFA 18, and NBA LIVE 18.
Aside from detailed gameplay deep dives, EA will also play host to competitive events and provide exclusive interviews with their development teams during the three-day EA-fest. So be sure to mark your calendars on the said dates. For those who will be attending in person, tickets will be available on April 20 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, though EA hasn't provided details yet on how the ticketing process will work. That will arrive in the coming weeks, according to EA.
EA will have a lot more to share about the EA Play experience in this year's E3, so be on the lookout for more announcements as the calendar crawls into June. You can stalk either the official website or the EA Twitter account.
