New Battlefield playable at EA Play before E3

New Battlefield playable at EA Play before E3

In a press release, EA promises players who attend will get the chance to play the next "Battlefield Experience", and get an "inside look" at Anthem.

Tickets for the event are free so, expect big crowds and even bigger explosions coming from the monitors as Battlefield 2018 gets its first public showing.

EA DICE is cooking up a brand new Battlefield game for 2018 and you'll be able to play it long before the final version arrives this fall.

With Battlefield 1 taking place during WWI, the next game could similarly leap in time-here's hoping for a return to Vietnam where the series had an excellent entry in 2004, taking advantage of the open space and jungle canopy. While the wording is deliberately ambiguous - "experience" sounds like it's been force-fed to PR staff by a hotshot executive - it's pretty unbelievable that a game would debut with such fanfare - and shows the confidence that DICE and EA have in the product. EA chose to go north, last year, to the Hollywood Palladium for an epic outdoor event.


Battlefield 2018 rumors originally pointed at Bad Company 3, but a report from Eurogamer claims that won't be the case.

Rather than being a part of E3 proper, Electronic Arts will once again host its own dedicated event just prior to the start of the gaming industry's major event in June.

Tickets will be available this Spring. Last year, fans traveled from all across the world to get to LA a couple of days before E3, with eyes set on playing at EA Play. Bioware and EA wowed the industry a year ago with an early look at the game.
