If you tuned in for the Xbox E3 2015 event earlier today, you might find it hard to believe that other studios have to follow up one of the most impressive presentations in recent E3 history. But the show must go on, and EA is in the unenviable position of holding its own press conference right after Microsoft.

FROM EARLIER: Video: This is the HoloLens Minecraft demo that just blew everyone’s mind at E3

Thankfully, EA has plenty that gamers want to see as well, most notably Star Wars Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – two reboots of popular franchises that many of us thought would never again see the light of day. Mass Effect might get a segment of its own as well – we already know that BioWare is hard at work on something in the franchise.

We already learned that EA will be bringing some of the generation’s biggest games to EA Access subscribers at Microsoft’s briefing, but expect to hear even more during EA’s presentation. EA also has a new lineup of sports games to unveil and we’ll finally get to see gameplay from the recently announced Need for Speed reboot.

The stream for the EA’s E3 Live Event begins at 1:00 p.m. PDT / 4:00 p.m. EDT. You can watch it via Twitch below and follow along with our live blog at the bottom of the page.

Not a bad way to end the conference! Our Ubisoft live blog will start up in just a few minutes, so don’t go anywhere!

Multiplayer gameplay trailer is already up on YouTube.

Just in time for Star Wars Battlefront!

Jacob Siegal

Looks like the Twitch stream cut out for a minute. Seems to be back now though.

Jacob Siegal

Madden 16 this time.

Jacob Siegal

Looks like a triple dip of sports. Definitely smart of EA to split it up like this rather than make everyone sit through a 30 minute sports block.

The website for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is live: comes out on February 23rd, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Totally open world.

Jacob Siegal

Finally, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.

Hey, Pelé at E3.

Jacob Siegal

Back to sports with FIFA! Kind of all over the place, aren’t we?

Jacob Siegal

Spending some time on Minions Paradise, another mobile game. Looks like a Simpsons: Tapped Out kinda deal.

Jacob Siegal

New collectible card game called Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes coming to mobile devices. It’s the year of the branded card game.

Jacob Siegal

Taking a break from the console games to talk mobile.

Jacob Siegal

A new scanning app will be available soon to put your face in NBA Live 16.

Jacob Siegal

They’re really blasting through the sports lineup this year. NBA Live 16 up now.

Jacob Siegal

The new PGA Tour game looks pretty incredible on the Frostbite engine.

First up, a gameplay trailer for NHL 16.

Jacob Siegal

Sports time!

Jacob Siegal

To be honest, I’m still thinking about that Mass Effect trailer.

Almost all of your unlocked characters from GW1 will transfer to GW2.

Jacob Siegal

There will be a new co-op mode and a single-player experience against AI or with local split-screen.

And in case you missed the announcement trailer from the Microsoft conference…

Jacob Siegal

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. People really loved the first one, and the brand is basically unstoppable, so not too surprising to see the team go back for more.

Well Unravel looks like the cutest darn thing in the world. Eat your heart out, Yarn Yoshi.

Jacob Siegal

New game called Unravel. It’s a puzzle-platformer of some description.

Jacob Siegal

More betas and playtests for players to participate in this year.

Jacob Siegal

Oh, and it’ll be free!

Jacob Siegal

Knights of the Fallen Empire, a new expansion, is coming out on October 27th. Apparently this will be more story-driven, BioWare-like than anything the team has done with the game in the past.

Jacob Siegal

Time for some updates on Star Wars: The Old Republic, an MMO that some people are definitely still playing.

Jacob Siegal

The world definitely looks livelier than the world from Rivals, at least based on what we’re seeing now.

Jacob Siegal

That’s a lot of drifting.

Jacob Siegal

FMV. FMV. FMV.

Jacob Siegal

Ventura Bay will be the city of the new Need for Speed, an open world environment twice the size of Rivals. I hope it’s more open than Rivals was.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is coming out next year. Faster turn around than I would have expected, honestly.

Jacob Siegal

Starting off with a Mass Effect trailer?

Jacob Siegal

We’re just a few minutes from the start of EA’s event. Who’s ready for some Battlefront?
