E3 2021 might have come and gone, but there's still at least one other big summer game event to look forward to: EA Play 2021.

EA opted for its own presentation this year, which will air later today. We have some details about what we could see, including Battlefield 2042, Apex Legends, and indie game Lost In Random.

However, we could see some surprises, like a revival of Dead Space and maybe even some brand new indie games.

Latest News

July 15 - No Star Wars

EA confirmed there will be no Star Wars news announced during EA Play 2021 but teased new announcements... next year.

July 1 - Lineup Announcements

EA announced a set of panels connected to the showcase called the Live Spotlight Series:

  • The Future Of First-Person Shooters, July 8
  • EA Originals <3 Independent Studios, July 13
  • Madden NFL 22 All-Access: Scouting - How the Community is Shaping Madden NFL 22, July 19

In a separate announcement, BioWare said it won't be showing up at EA Play, but is still hard at work on Dragon Age 4 and Mass Effect 4.

EA Play 2021 Date

EA Play 2021 will take place July 22 at 10 a.m. PST/6 p.m. BST with a pre-showcase. The full presentation starts after that, and EA's chief marketing officer, David Tinson, revealed it'll last around 40 minutes.

“The show is a fast-paced one, coming in around 40 minutes and will feature what’s next for games like Battlefield 2042 and Apex Legends. You’ll also see the first gameplay for Lost in Random, featuring explosive dice battles, time-freezing tactics and card collection."
"We’ll have a couple other games to highlight as well, but for those, you’ll just have to wait and see.”

How to Watch EA Play 2021

EA hasn't yet announced how we can watch EA Play 2021, but we'd be surprised if it doesn't stream on the publisher's YouTube and Twitch pages.

EA Play 2021 Host

EA announced G4TV host Austin Creed will host this summer's event.

Battlefield 2042

Following the Battlefield 2042 officially reveal, we can expect it to show up in some capacity.

Apex Legends

Respawn's battle royale has been a huge success for EA. Could we see some of Season 10's content shown off?


A new FIFA game is hardly surprising, but EA Play would be as good a time as any to announce FIFA 22.

The Sims 5

Don't get your hopes up for this one. We’ve been seeing updates to The Sims 4 for years now, and while there are plenty of changes we'd like to see in a new Sims game, it doesn't seem like EA plans on abandoning this one anytime soon.

Dead Space

Rumours of an IP revival have been floating around that EA is planning to bring Dead Space back, so we could see this announcement here.
