EA Play Has a Date and Time, and I Hope it Shows More Dragon Age Than a Glowing Tree

The event is still a month away.

EA Play, the Electronic Arts showcase that is definitively not part of E3, but part of Summer Game Fest, finally has a time to go along with its July 22 date.

The company has announced it will be holding its showcase at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern time on that Thursday, beginning with a pre-show before the main event. The show will be hosted by Austin Creed.

The show has previously been pretty much a Star Wars and sports game showcase, but there’s a lot to hope for based on some reports, as well as just knowing that some companies are doing stuff they might get to finally talk about. A report has hinted EA Motive is working on a revival of a previously dormant IP, and there’s reason to believe it might be Dead Space. If we’re lucky, we might hear something new from Bioware as well, which we know is working on the next entries in the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series. Although it’s more likely that we’ll see the former than the latter, given that the next Mass Effect seems to still be in early development. Hopefully this time we see more than some test footage of a glowing tree.

While it is distanced by about a month from everything else, EA Play is part of Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest, which kicked off with a show that was more company neutral earlier this month.
