Fans can tune in to watch the EA Play conference on June 9 on the EA website, or you can catch all the action on Twitch and Youtube.

Change the paint job, apply decals (one design looked suspiciously similar to the Mass Effect N7 suit), and even change the shape of the suit itself to suit your fancy. First up was the announcement of Sea of Solitude. "Instead of coming out of the gate and sprinting like we really wanted to, we had to take a step back and make sure that we were delivering a game that players really wanted".

Moving now to some Indie games, EA has come up with the sequel to Unravel which had a challenging puzzle platform gameplay.

At the very least, we can rest easy knowing that Battlefield V and Anthem, two of the most exciting upcoming games, won't be reaching into our pockets at every given opportunity.

Now EA did have some great showings for indies and that deserves some credit.

As for the story, we're still only getting high-level details, but here's what we know.
