With E3 2019 now only a couple weeks away, there's seemingly been no shortage of leaks and rumors surrounding some of the content that could be shown. While companies like Microsoft and Bethesda continue to hold their cards close to the chest, Electronic Arts has taken a different approach this year. Fans not only know the full schedule of EA Play 2019, but all of the games that will be shown off as well.
EA Play 2019 is now 10 days away and company has updated its website with the livestreaming schedule and all of the games to be featured. Festivities start at 9:30am PST at the Hollywood Palladium with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order followed by a different game getting the spotlight every half an hour along with gaming personality hosts like Greg Miller, Julia Hardy, and Alex Mendez. In addition to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, confirmed games include the second season of Apex Legends, Battlefield V, EA Sports FIFA, Madden 20, and The Sims 4.
While fans across the globe can tune into the streams, EA has also provided additional details for fans who purchase tickets to attend EA Play 2019 in person across June 8 and 9. Fans can check out a custom EA Sports FIFA soccer pitch, try to score a touchdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers wide reciever JuJu Smith-Schuster, take part in a theater experience and photo opportunity for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and purchase new merchandise onsite as well.

It'll be interesting to see how EA approaches E3 2019 considering the up and down year the company has had so far. The year started off fairly well with the surprising debut of Apex Legends from Respawn Entertainment, going on to be massively successful in terms of player engagement. Unfortunately, things took a dark turn a few weeks later with Anthem, a game from BioWare that has seen plenty of controversy since launch.
At this time, it's been about a month since BioWare has said anything definitive about the future of Anthem, leaving many in the community to feel a bit abandoned or wondering if the game has been left for dead, outside of a recent, small update. Most fans expected Anthem to be featured heavily at EA Play with plans for the future, but shockingly neither Anthem nor BioWare's other project, Dragon Age 4, are currently listed on the event schedule.
EA Play begins Saturday, June 8, 2019.
