E3 2018: EA Reveals EA Play Plans


Share.

New Battlefield, Anthem are the big tickets.

EA has shared the first details around this year’s E3-adjacent event, EA Play.

This year’s EA Play will take place at the Hollywood Palladium from June 9-11. In a press release, EA promises players who attend will get the chance to play the next “Battlefield Experience“, and get an “inside look” at Anthem. As per usual, EA Sports, The Sims 4 and EA’s latest mobile games will also be on offer.

EA has also promised a better ticketing system this year, in order to give more players more access to game stations. For those unable to attend, it’s once again paired up with popular content creators across YouTube, Twitch, Facebook and Twitter, allowing them to stream and vlog directly from the show. Tickets will be available in the Spring, with more details on scheduling coming in the next few weeks and months.

EA recently confirmed that a new Battlefield is coming in 2018, set to debut this Fall. According to the publisher, it’s anticipated action game Anthem was pushed to Q1 2019 in order to accommodate the latest iteration in the series.

“It’s not a delay,” EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen told The Wall Street Journal. “People are trying to create a story.”

Stay tuned for more info on this year’s EA Play as we get it.
