EA’s announced it’s to stream its gamescom press conference tomorrow afternoon on its website, as well as confirming a public 64-player multiplayer area for Battlefield 3 and hands-on with PvP in The Old Republic.

We have a very powerful set of games for today’s consoles, and now we offer that IP to players as year-round entertainment across all of their devices and platforms,” said SVP of publishing at EA Europe, Jens Uwe Intat.
