EA's big summer showcase was on July 22. Here's what was announced.
EA Play Live was today, presenting around an hour of information on new and ongoing games from the publisher's catalog. We heard news about the long-awaited return of a classic series, more information on the upcoming Battlefield 2042--and it's fancy new mode--as well as an ambitious racing game from the newly acquired Codemasters. Below, we've outlined a recap of the entire show so you can get caught up in a hurry.
Here's what was shown and announced at EA Play Live.
Yes, a full remake of Dead Space. This isn't a remaster, but the original game remade from the ground up. EA Motive is working on the project, with senior producer Phillippe Ducharme saying he joined the studio specifically to make Dead Space. Additionally, longtime fans have been consulting on the project, giving feedback to help make sure it's satisfying for new and returning players.

Apex Legends is entering Season 10 with Emergence, which features the new Seer character. Seer focuses primarily on stealth to track enemies without getting detected, and he's voiced by Halo 5 and Mass Effect 3 actor Iké Amadi. The season kicks off August 3 after the conclusion of the Thrillseekers event.
Grid Legends is a brand-new racing game from Codemasters, a developer and publisher that EA acquired several months ago. An ambitious single-player story mode includes live-action segments, with Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa playing a major role, and it will make use of Extended Reality technology similar to The Mandalorian for an immersive experience.
Lost in Random
The latest game in the EA Originals line, Lost in Random is from developer Zoink, who previously made Fe and Stick it to the Man. The Burton-like adventure features a unique take on combat with a companion named Dicey, and it pays homage to stop-motion animation in its world and character designs. for all consoles and PC.
Knockout City: Season 2
Knockout City is getting a new content season focused on the magic of filmmaking in Hollywood. In this case, it's Holowood, at least for the game's new map, and there is a soda-powered ball that can obscure players' vision with its fizzy payload so you can go in for the knockout.
