The closer we get to E3, the more details we’re getting about what publishers and developers are planning for the event. Electronic Arts has been going its own way for the last few years staging something called EA Play. On Thursday, the firm let it be known at least some of the things they have planned for EA Play 2017.

The company has said it will be kicking off the event with its standard press conference at 3 pm EST on June 10. The conference is going to be live streamed and we’ll be able to see some of the biggest games that are planned for the rest of 2017.

Those biggest games include the best look we’ve gotten yet at “Star Wars: Battlefront 2”.

EA Game Changers Creators Cave

Once the EA Play press conference has officially kicked off, visitors to E3 will be able to get their hands on some of Electronic Arts’ offerings at the Game Changers Creators Cave. The “Cave” will allow creators talk with and interact with developers. There will also be the ability to capture some rather early game footage. Members of the media will be able to live stream right from the show floor as well.

As has been the case in the past, EA Play 2017 will have fun events such as game demos, community contests, live music, and hands-on gaming stations. The tickets to the event are free and will be offered up on a first come, first serve basis starting on April 20.

Games on Display at EA Play 2017

While we don’t know the full list of games slated to debut at this year’s event, we do know “Star Wars Battlefront 2” will be shown off as well as “FIFA 18”, “Madden NFL 18”, another new entry in the “Need for Speed” series.

Electronic Arts is also apparently going to be showing off yet another attempt at “NBA Live 18”.

This game series has been fraught with problems over the last few years. There have even been several years where EA didn’t put out a version of the title because there were so many problems during development. It will be interesting to see if the company can finally figure out a way to make a game that can compete with the “NBA 2K” series.

Those who aren’t as keen on sports titles might be excited to get their hands on the new “Need for Speed” Electronic Arts has already said they are planning on releasing this new installment sometime in the next fiscal year. EA Play will be taking place and letting people know more from June 10 to June 12 at the Hollywood Paladium. "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" is set to be shown off later this month.
