"Weekends are meant for play, and this year we’ve moved the EA Play fanfest to Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 where players will get hands-on with our games.

"We’ll also have content creators streaming live from our Creator’s Cave in the Hollywood Palladium providing gameplay content to our players viewing online."

At this year's free event, attendees can expect hands-on with some of its biggest games, and exclusive content.

EA Play kicks off on Friday, June 7 the weekend event will feature livestreams of behind-the-scenes content, gameplay reveals, developer talks and more. Expect more news on Anthem, Apex Legends, FIFA, other sports titles, and gameplay for Jedi: Fallen Order.

Tickets will be available starting next month.

Last year during EA Play 2018, the company's main focus was on Anthem and Battlefield 5. It also teased Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and announced Origin Access Premier.
