EA Play 2019 recap, gameplay trailers, and announcements

Did you miss the marathon EA Play 2019 live stream during E3 2019? We got you covered with all the trailers and games from the show in Hollywood.


EA Play 2019 held an action-packed thrill ride of a live stream earlier today from the Hollywood Palladium in southern California. Shacknews was covering the news as it broke from the event as well as on the ground with hands-on previews of the games, but we figured why not break down all the reveals and gameplay trailers. Please take a look at EA’s version of an E3 2019 extravaganza.
