Electronic Arts has announced when its EA Play 2017 stream will be when E3 rolls around. The livestream, which will cover the EA Play presentation, will take place on June 10, at 12 p.m. Pacific Coast Time, or at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. EA will be showing off its upcoming games at the show.
This date puts EA three days ahead of the start date of E3 2017, giving it plenty of time to get ahead of the rest of the crowd. Exactly how far ahead, however, depends on when other big publishers and studios are going to want to hold their own conferences.
Bethesda, for instance, may hold its own E3 conference several days before.
Considering how many developers and games are at E3, one can’t really fault EA for wanting to make their own games as distinctive as possible, before everyone else can get lost in the excitement of E3.
However, the EA Play 2017 stream won’t be the only thing that shows off the EA press event.
EA has also said they’ll have an EA Game Changers Creators Cave at the heart of the Hollywood Palladium stadium, where hundreds of gamers will be able to gather and capture early game footage, edit it, and upload it to the internet.
They’d also be able to interact with the development teams of the games.
Also a part of the onsite event is a Player Fanfest, where over 140 hands-on gaming demo booths, demos, live music, and more will all be available for attendees. These attendees will be able to get hands-on coverage of various upcoming games like Star Wars Battlefront 2, and the upcoming Need for Speed games.
You can watch the EA Play 2017 stream on June 10, and tickets will be available for free on April 20. If you’re close enough to go and be there physically, be on the lookout for when the tickets are available.
