Predicting what will come along at EA Play Live is no easy task - but we've had a good go.

IN TO BATTLE - Battlefield 2042 is expected to feature

Sims 5 is the game we ALL want to see, but with Cottage Living also going live today, we may be disappointed.

As for FIFA 22, this could be Career Mode or an Ultimate Team deep dive - with EA perhaps using this showcase to show off some upcoming racing games due to their recent acquisition of Codemasters.

Check out the other things we want to see right here.

FIFA 22

Following on from the Madden 22 Spotlight showcase - FIFA 22 was the next title to be shown off ahead of EA Play Live.

We got a closer look at Next Gen Gameplay featuring the new Hypermotion Technology.

We've already seen a sneak peak with Kantcho Doskov, FIFA Gameplay Director stating that Hypermotion shows off the "intensity and athleticism" of players.

Expect to see more from FIFA 22 during EA Play Live, with a deep dive into Ultimate Team - or possibly into Career Mode - most likely.

Madden 22

Madden 22 is still likely to feature at EA Play Live, but it received its own spotlight event on Monday, 19 July.

Thanks to the fan movement #FixMaddenFranchise, there was significant pressure on EA Sports to give the once-beloved and now oft-criticized game mode some much-needed TLC.

Check out our take on the showcase right here.

What else to expect?

EA Sports will have plenty to say during EA Play Live with the likes of FIFA 22, Madden 22, NHL 22, PGA Tour, NBA Live, and College Football all expected to feature in some capacity.

After EA's acquisition of Codemasters, there could be space for F1 news somewhere too!

Elsewhere, away from sports and racing, it's not that clear what will be shown off. We know for sure that Battlefield 2042 will show up in some capacity, probably to show off maps and modes.

Otherwise, we know more about what won't be there than what will. Mass Effect, Star Wars, Skate, and Dragon Age have all confirmed that they won't be making any announcement.

What we are hoping for, though, is more detail on Apex Legends Season 10, a reveal of The Sims 5, and finally some information on the rumoured Dead Space remake. Anything else will be a complete surprise.
