Make room for EA Play 2020. A week after Sony unveiled a bunch of games for the PS5, EA is back with its own annual event. It usually takes place alongside E3, but since the year’s biggest gaming event is cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, EA Play 2020 is going online-only. Still, there won’t be any compromise on games. New FIFA and Star Wars titles? Guaranteed. Apex Legends cross-play? Highly likely. A new Dragon Age? Maybe. A Mass Effect trilogy remaster? Rumoured.
What we do know for sure is that every new game revealed at EA Play 2020 will have support for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. It would be foolish not to, what with the next generation of consoles less than six months away from launch. We’re much less sure about the length of EA Play 2020, though. Last year, EA Play ran for over three hours. But given that it’s happening virtually, that might be not the case this time around.
Don’t worry, we’ll be here for all the important news. If you’d rather stick around yourself, here’s what you need.
