As usual, EA won’t be attending E3 2019 this year. However, they will be hosting an EA Play 2019 on June 8-9. Here’s the schedule for the presentations.
EA Play 2019 Schedule
Instead of holding a press conference this year, Electronic Arts are airing a couple of live-streams that will be dedicated to their upcoming games and the gameplay. The live-streams will be featured on their website and via YouTube. The schedule is as follows:
- 9:15am (PT): Countdown to EA Play
- 9:30am (PT): Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
- 10:00am (PT): Apex Legends
- 10:30am (PT): Battlefield V
- 11:00am (PT): FIFA 20
- 11:30am (PT): Madden NFL 20
- 12:00pm (PT): The Sims 4
Currently, 3 of these games are already released which means we can probably expect updates on those.
The EA Play 2019 Games
Obviously, as this year’s presentation is game focused, it makes sense to say a little bit about the games that will be shown.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to come out November 15, 2019. It will be a single player adventure game centred around Palawan Cal Kestis, the only living Jedi. This game is highly anticipated so it’s no surprise that it’s first up in the schedule.
FIFA 20 hasn’t received an official release date as of yet. However, fans of the game can expect to see gameplay. Hopefully, this gameplay will show some new features, game modes and general improvements on the game.
Madden NFL 20 is set to launch in August of this year. The presentation will most likely focus on the new career mode, QB1. This mode lets you pick a college team, play the Quarterback and work your way up to get scouted for a real NFL team.
In addition to this, Apex Legends is already available so the presentation will most likely feature aspects of new updates that Respawn Entertainment are planning to roll out.
Battlefield V was released in 2018 as part of the first person shooter franchise. The presentation will most likely focus on the new battle royale mode, Firestorm, which was launched earlier this year. Additionally, it will focus on its fourth chapter “Defying the Odds” which is set to launch in June.
Finally, the Sims 4 will have its own presentation. With new content having been added recently – this could be a talking point in the presentation. As such a huge franchise, it’s no surprise that Sims is getting a mention at this year’s EA play.
