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.
