Conspicuous by its absence, Sony Playstation has surprised many by deciding not to attend E3 this year. According to Gamespot, Sony has decided against attending the video game conference this year for the first time in E3 history to “explor[e] new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019.”
EA Play 2019, while not being an official E3 conference, still gave out plenty during a set of livestreams in the early hours of Sunday morning. Headlined by a gameplay reveal for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, EA also unveiled expansion packs for Sims 4 and Season 2 of Apex Legends, among others. Fans of popular franchise, the FIFA series, will also be pleased to hear that FIFA 20 will bring back a de-facto ‘FIFA Street’ mode—FIFA 20 Volta Football.
More updates (and full rundowns of conferences) will be provided as E3 2019 progresses, including details on Microsoft’s Xbox Project Scarlett and the upcoming Halo Infinite.
