Following in Sony's footsteps, EA just announced that they're skipping the press conference at E3 this year. In its place, they'll have multiple livestreams from game developers at their EA Play event the weekend before E3 starts ups. EA claims this is what their player base wants, and reiterated that the EA Play event will be free to attend while offering hands-on experiences with some of EA's upcoming releases. It all starts this year on Friday night, June 7, 2019, with an all-new EA PLAY kickoff event. We're skipping the press conference this year and are replacing it 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. Weekends are meant for play, and this year we've moved the EA PLAY fanfest to Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 where players will get hands-on with our games. 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. EA.com will be the home for all online EA PLAY content. Players can get behind-the-scenes with our games via exclusive gameplay reveals, developer talks and breaking news.
