EA Play 2018: Exactly When and Where the Show Will Take Place


E3 is like Christmas for gamers. A place where publishers and developers alike take to the stage to share their big plans for the year, with more than a few surprises. EA previously announced that they would once again be holding their own celebration with their EA Play showcase that will be taking place from June 9th until June 11th.

The showcase will officially kick off at 11 AM PDT on June 9th. The mega publisher promises big news and a few "big announcements," while BioWare fans get to finally experience some hands-on time with the upcoming action RPG Anthem.

Here's what EA had to say about the festivities after their major showcase:

EA PLAY is heading back to the city of stars this June, and we're bringing you the biggest games of the year.

Where: Hollywood Palladium
When: June 9-11, 2018
