Just like Sony this year, Electronic Arts is also skipping E3 this year and instead of the traditional conference we’ve all come to expect since the start, EA plans on live streaming a series of events in the week leading up to E3. This allows the company the opportunity for game reveals leading up to start of E3. With EA Play 2019, expect a weekend of hands-on demos for those attending.
EA Play 2019 kicks off on Friday, June 7, 2019, and with no media press conference this year, that leaves more time for gamers with “multiple live streams that will air during the first two days of the event, bringing you more of what you’ve told us you want – more gameplay and insights from the teams making the games.”
Following that, the weekend of Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9, is where all the hands-on demos occur in the LA area and won’t cost anything to those attending.
Then, “We’ll also have content creators streaming live from our Creator’s Cave in the Hollywood Palladium providing gameplay content to our players viewing online,” said EA. “Players can get behind-the-scenes with our games via exclusive gameplay reveals, developer talks and breaking news.”
Sure, EA do your thing. Hopefully, it’s not a bad event and you show something that isn’t a sports title or another Battlefield. Either way, it’s happening so let’s make the most of it.
