    EA Play 2020: Start Time, How to Watch Live Stream

    Make room for EA Play 2020. A week after Sony unveiled a bunch of games for the PS5, EA is back with its own annual event. It usually takes place alongside E3, but since the year's biggest gaming event is cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, EA Play 2020 is going online-only.

    Still, there won't be any compromise on games. New FIFA and Star Wars titles? Guaranteed. Apex Legends cross-play? Highly likely. A new Dragon Age? Maybe. A Mass Effect trilogy remaster? Rumoured.

    What we do know for sure is that every new game revealed at EA Play 2020 will have support for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. It would be foolish not to, what with the next generation of consoles less than six months away from launch. We're much less sure about the length of EA Play 2020, though. Last year, EA Play ran for over three hours. But given that it's happening virtually, that might be not the case this time around.
    Don't worry, we'll be here for all the important news. If you'd rather stick around yourself, here's what you need.

    EA Play 2020 start time and date
    EA Play Live 2020 kicks off today (June 18) at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET. If past years are any indication, the show will likely be available for replay after it initially airs.

    EA Play 2020 live stream
    You can watch EA Play 2020 live on the official EA website. EA has yet to reveal official live streams for YouTube or Twitch, but we'll be sure to update when we spot them. At first glance, EA seems to have partnered with the likes of GameSpot and Engadget on YouTube.

    Is there a 4K 60fps stream for EA Play 2020?
    There's no word from EA if the EA Play 2020 live stream will be available in 4K 60fps. That said, all the new EA games to be announced will run at 4K resolution on compatible platforms.

    Sports fans have plenty to look forward to, as we'll see the gameplay premiere of FIFA 21 as well as a deeper look at Madden NFL 21. Respawn Entertainment has also asked fans to tune into EA Play to see "what's next" for Apex Legends, its wildly popular battle royale game. A Way Out director Josef Fares has also said his next game will be teased at EA Play, so expect yet another immersive narrative game from the popular creator.

    GameReactor reports that a Mass Effect Trilogy remaster is in the works for Fall 2020, so an EA Play reveal would certainly get fans excited. And while it's a long shot, we'd love to see more of Dragon Age 4, which was last teased all the way back in December 2018.
