For the past two years, publisher Electronic Arts has opted to have their own event known as EA Play where they showcase their upcoming slate of games on their own rather than attending E3. This year, EA will be doing that once again.

Electronic Arts today revealed their plans for EA Play 2018 where the show will again be occurring at the Hollywood Palladium. Like last year, the event will run for three days beginning on Saturday, June 9 and concluding on Monday, June 11.

What’s interesting to note so far is that the current plans for EA Play 2018 don’t specifically mention any sort of opening press conference, which has become the typical manner in which the event kicks off every year. This doesn’t mean that a press event won’t be happening, though, and EA might not be announcing specifics until closer to June. The description for the event does however say,  some of the biggest global community creators in the world will be sharing early game footage and live streams directly from the show floor for players viewing from home.”

As far as what games will be at EA Play 2018, fans can expect to see the typical new slew of EA Sports titles like Madden and FIFAThe Sims 4, the new Battlefield game that has been confirmed to release this year, and also the highly-anticipated Bioware action game Anthem which was recently delayed until 2019. All of this, plus a few surprises are what has been confirmed so far.

If you’re going to be in Los Angeles area in June and want to attend EA Play 2018 yourself, then you’ll have the opportunity to get tickets later this spring. The event is free to get into so you shouldn’t have to worry about spending any money. And if you’re watching EA Play from home, there will no doubt be plenty of surprises for you as well.
