With E3 2017 just around the corner, major publishers are preparing to host their own press conferences over the coming days. Electronic Arts will be the first up, with a briefing scheduled to start later today as a part of its "EA Play" showcase. Over the course of the conference, we can expect to hear more information on previously announced EA games, the debut of upcoming projects and some changes to existing products.

As previously mentioned in our expectations roundup, Star Wars Battlefront 2 will headline the show, where the game will be getting its multiplayer reveal. Although footage of the game leaked earlier today, we still expect to learn more about the multiplayer changes (and maybe some single-player if we're lucky too.)

Other games to watch out for will be the recently announced Need for Speed Payback as well as this year's installment of its soccer series, FIFA 18. EA sports games, such as Madden, NHL, and NBA Live are also likely to see appearances at the show, with annual refreshes. Similarly, existing EA titles, such as Battlefield 1 and Mass Effect Andromeda are expected to see their next DLC expansions. We'll be seeing some new game reveals too, although we're yet to have any indication of what these may be.

For those hoping to catch the show, the EA Play conference kicks off at 3 PM ET / 8 PM BST on Saturday, June 10. You can watch the entire show live on the company's YouTube and Twitch channels, or follow our coverage at Windows Central. What are you looking forward to from Electronic Arts? Let us know your predictions in the comments.
