EA has announced some of the games those attending its E3 2017 satellite event, EA Play, will be able to try their hand at.

Those who attend the event will be able to go hands on with the next Star Wars: Battlefront and Need for Speed games along with upcoming Battlefield 1 content and EA Sports titles Madden NFL 18, FIFA 18 and NBA LIVE 18.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is slated for a holiday 2017 release so it’s a rather obvious entry in the line-up. Same with the new Need for Speed title, as it’s expected to be released sometime before March 2018.

According to the company, that “isn’t all,” as it will have more to share on the event and what’ll be on-hand in the coming months.

We’re hoping we’ll hear at least something on Visceral’s Star Wars game, even if it’s not due until sometime before the rapture. We just want to know more about it.

EA Originals Fe and Sea of Solitude will probably pop up, and we’ll likely hear more on how EA plans to support Switch with titles other than FIFA 18.

You never know, but we might see a tease at least on Dragon Age 4 if it’s on the slate. If so, we can probably expect it sometime around 2019 or 2020. If we’re lucky, earlier, but we’re not putting money on that horse.

Those who are unable to attend EA Play will be able to watch the goings on at home online. Throughout the three-day event the company plans to provide detailed gameplay deep dives, competitive events and interviews with the development teams.

As usual, EA will host a press conference and livestream it, and to keep yourself up-to-date, you can  sign up with EA for notifications on the schedule.

The EA Play event runs June 10-12, and tickets for the event will be made available starting April 20 at 9am PT/12pm ET/5pm UK. More details on how to obtain tickets will come closer to that date.
