We already knew most of the games that will be available when EA hosts its EA Play event this weekend from Los Angeles ahead of E3 2017.
Apparently, though, there are a couple more games making an appearance that EA doesn’t want to spoil ahead of its press event on Saturday afternoon.
The announced games are:
- Battlefront 2
- Need For Speed: Payback
- FIFA 18
- Madden 18
- NBA Live 18
- Battlefield 1
As far as the unannounced games, there is potential for at least one of them to be a brand new IP. In addition to the unannounced games, EA is teasing “more surprises” for those in attendance.
