Electronic Arts announced that EA Play 2017 will provide new looks and deep dives into its biggest games, new reveals and more. According to the press release, Electronic Arts' conference will feature eight games and "more surprises".
While press release mentions eight games, Electronic Arts has only confirmed six of those eight games so far. The confirmed titles include FIFA 18, Madden NFL 18, NBA Live 18, Need for Speed Payback, Battlefield 1, and Star Wars Battlefront II. What the other titles and the "surprises" are remains unknown, but we can probably expect some indie titles and the official reveal of new unannounced titles. Earlier this year, Electronic Arts announced that Bioware was working on a new IP, making this a strong candidate to appear at the show. EA community manager Daniel Lingen also teased Skate 4, although Electronic Arts later flat-out said that the game was not in development.
Live @ EA PLAY will also showcase the first live multiplayer match for Star Wars Battlefront called “Assault on Theed”. The match will utilize a prequel-era map and feature 40 of the biggest YouTube influencers in the world, including StoneMountain64.
Immediately following the press conference, on EA.com the livestream will continue until 3pm PT with a behind-the-scenes look at what’s happening in the FanFest at EA PLAY. The livestream will provide a closer look at five games – Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, Need for Speed Payback, Madden NFL 18, FIFA 18 as well as a 64-person multiplayer match of the all-new Battlefield 1 map, Nivelle Nights.
EA Play 2017 will take place today at 8:00pm BST/12:00 PM PT. You can watch the show here.
