Battlefield and Anthem will be the stars of the show at EA Play in June

EA has confirmed that once again it’ll be hosting EA Play, its own dedicated event that takes place just before the official kick-off of E3 2018

Taking place between June 9 and 11 in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium, EA Play is the time when EA fans will get the chance to get hands-on with the games that the publisher will launch over the course of the next year.

At EA Play 2018 it’s been confirmed that attendees will have the chance to play “the next Battlefield experience”, around which there are very little details. While EA has confirmed that a brand new Battlefield game will be coming in 2018, it hasn’t actually given any hints as to what we can expect from it. After the series went back to WW1 with Battlefield 1 there really is room to go anywhere in the future. 

An Anthem appearance

Those at the event will also get the chance to play the 2019 roster of EA Sports titles which will include FIFA 19 and Madden 19. 

Despite the fact that its release date has been pushed back to 2019, EA’s next big title, Anthem, will also appear at the show. It doesn’t look like fans will be able to actually play the game as EA has only promised “an inside look.” Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see a little more from the game after its brief teaser at E3 2017.

Tickets for EA Play will become available this spring and EA says it has changed the system “to give players better hands-on access to their favorite games.” What the new system will involve hasn’t been revealed just yet but more details about tickets and the event itself will be revealed in “coming weeks.”
