Battlefield 1 E3 Livestream Will Showcase 64-Player Battles
Not much longer to wait to see more of the World War 1 shooter.
Battlefield 1's first livestream will take place at E3 2016 in June, Electronic Arts has announced.
The stream will begin at 2 PM PST / 5 PM EST on Sunday, June 12, which is one hour after EA's E3 briefing begins that day.
"Excited to see Battlefield 1 in action? Tune in on June 12 at 2 PM PT for Battlefield Squads, where 64 players will take part in the first-ever livestream of Battlefield 1 gameplay," reads a line from the event's description on the Battlefield website (via GameZone).
Battlefield fans Battlefield Friends - Noob and StoneMountain64 will server as captains, while their teams will be made up of "some of the most well-known YouTubers and Twitch streamers around, as well as a few special guests."
Anyone has a shot at attending the event and participating in the livestream. To win a trip to E3 for the EA Play event, you need to follow @Battlefield and tweet @Battlefield with a video explaining why you should get the gig. Entries must be submitted by June 3.
