EA Play was one of the most surprising things at E3 last year leaving the regular show and putting on a great display of games at a separate location. I attended last year as press and believe I am again, the email wasn't exactly too precise for that yet seemed to confirm so. With that out of the way let's go over what to expect from EA Play 2017. The first thing to know is that EA has this system down perfectly, its well set up and feels completely modern. You get a special wrist band for going to locations and unlocking certain things.
These can be photos sent to your email or even tweet what you're doing, it's amazing. I hope that comes back again as it was an easy way to share what I'm doing and perhaps it'll be expanded upon with their creator sharing focus. This year they've noted that there will be creation stations for influencers to capture direct feed gameplay or stream, so who knows what sort of awesome things others or myself might be able to share while attending.
When it comes to games we know the roster with all the sports games; Madden 18, Fifa 18 and NBA Live 18 with NHL 18 apparently being excluded (sad face). When it comes to other titles there will be Need for Speed 2017 and Star Wars Battlefront 2. They've also mentioned that some unannounced titles will be there though I'm unsure what exactly might be there considering all the big titles came out recently. There might be some Mass Effect Andromeda DLC shown and perhaps some new EA Indie Games since they've been doing a good job of supporting those in recent years.
This is mostly what's been confirmed for the event and it's a great time. I was particularly blown away last year as the the location (different this year) was fancy, well setup for games and had a clean direction for what to do. It's something that fans will love to attend for the latest demos and press will also love considering the quiet hours that were provided last year. I'm looking forward to EA Play 2017 and I believe that the ever improving EA will put on a good show.
