A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

Electronic Arts revealed the games such as the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront sequel that it will show to gamers at its EA Play event during June.

EA Play is a fan event that takes the place of EA’s former booth at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). EA withdrew from the big game trade show in Los Angeles, but it still has a presence through EA Play, which is a fan event taking place in Hollywood from June 10 to June 12. Tickets for the event go on sale on April 20 at 9 a.m. Pacific time.

The games that will be displayed include the new Star Wars Battlefront and Need For Speed titles, as well as sports tiles Madden NFL 18, FIFA 18 and NBA LIVE 18. EA will also have more unannounced games as well.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.

“Beyond the hands-on experience in Hollywood, we have an extensive content program for our players joining us online,” EA said in a blog post. “Throughout the three-day event we will be providing you with detailed gameplay deep dives, competitive events and exclusive interviews with the development teams. So whether you’re experiencing EA Play in-person or watching online, be sure to join us starting June 10.”

The event will be at the Hollywood Palladium.
