Sure, EA might technically be the first E3 press conference this year, but only in spirit. Today’s presentation is actually the start of EA Play, which sees the publisher abscond from E3 proper to host its own fan/press event in the adjacent Novo Theater, and simultaneously in London. Watching the online stream probably proceeded as normal, but it was certainly strange to be in the audience—half of the presentation took place in the room, while the other half was livestreamed to us from Europe, via Peter Moore.
Regardless, the result is lots of games—most that we already knew about, including Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, and Mass Effect Andromeda. There were some small surprises though. Play to Give and EA Originals, anyone?
