EA Play Live Will Focus On Games 'Coming Soon', Rather Than The 'All-To-Distant Future'

Even though E3 has been and gone, we're still not out of the woods yet when it comes to game presentations. We're still in the realm of Summer Game Fest, and as a result, have more showcases on the way. One of which will be EA Play Live - a 40 minute show from the publisher on July 22 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 5PM UTC / 6PM BST. But instead of focusing on games that are far away, it's now been confirmed to be focusing on games closer to release.

In a recent blog post from the company, it said it had "a lot" to show during the main event. Some of the games in attendance have also been revealed. Battlefield 2042 and Apex Legends will be showing their faces, but we'll also get a first look at the gameplay from Lost in Random - the 3D Tim Burton inspired platformer. There's also said to be a few more games shown, but as for those, fans will just have to "wait and see."

It was also mentioned the show will be a "fast-paced one", focusing on "new gameplay reveals, a few giveaways and other surprises". Obviously the one that's on everyone's mind is the Dead Space revival. Will this be the place we see the long rumoured remake?

EA also has a lot of other events planned in the run up to its main event. On July 8 it will be looking at The Future of First-Person Shooters, before moving onto July 13, where the EA <3s Independent Studios stream will focus on smaller developers. Finally, July 19 will see Madden NFL 22 All-Access, which will focus on the next instalment.

There's a lot to get through, but the main attention is going to be directed to EA Play Live. Last year's event was a bit lacklustre, so hopefully the feedback has been taken into consideration and we can have a punchier showcase this time around.
