Instead of having a big press conference at E3, Electronic Arts chose to have its own event: EA Play 2016. Here's everything you need to know and all the trailers you need to see.

Electronic Arts offered a first look at their EA Originals program. Originals is EA's way to introduce games by smaller studios to a wider audience. The company says they're "committed to finding great new games that we know players are going to love, and working with small developers to make sure those games get discovered and into the hands of players."
The first EA Originals title is Fe, developed by a small studio in Gothenburg called Zoink.
Battlefield 1 is probably one of the most anticipated shooters this years, and EA did not dissappoint.
Also, Snoop Dog showed up to actually play the game. Here's over 45 minutes of Battlefield 1 gameplay. (Thanks for capturing and uploading, Eurogamer!)
Although the first Titanfall was a Microsoft-exclusive (Xbox 360, One and PC), Titanfall 2 will be a true multi-platform game. And it's looking good!
We feel like it's been way too long since we've visited the Mass Effect universe. Early 2017 we can finally go back, with Mass Effect: Andromeda
Electronic Arts also gave us a look at what's next for the Star Wars franchise. Free Battlefront content, more content for Galaxy of Heroes and The Old Republic and even a new Battlefront game next year. But beyond that, we can look forward to a new Star Wars action adventure game by Visceral Games and a very mysterious new title by Respawn Entertainment.
You didn't think they would skip FIFA 17, right? The big announcement this year is The Journey, a new game mode where you experience the story of Alex Hunter, a rising star in the Premier League.
Where Europe has FIFA, America has Madden. Madden 17 promises to have the deepest Franchise mode in the franchise, improved balance and fresh ways to play modes such as Ultimate Team and Draft Champions.
Here's the entire EA Play press conference, in case you want to re-watch it. The show starts around the 40-minute mark.
