EA PLAY 2019 will feature:

  • First hands-on with some of our biggest games.
  • Exclusive content from some of the most popular creators in the world.
  • Free for all to attend.

The event is being split across a few days so everyone has a chance to absorb what's going on either in-person, or through livestreams. EA has moved the EA PLAY fanfast to Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 where gamers will get some hands-on time with EA's countless games. THere will be content creators streaming live from their Creator's Cave in the Hollywood Palladium, with being the home of all of the online EA PLAY content.

There will be behind-the-scenes goodies for gamers, as well as exclusive gameplay reveals, developer tgalks, and breaking news.
