This came out of nowhere, but apparently, Electronic Arts is testing an open pre-alpha build for Plants vs. Zombies 3 on Android. If you'd like to get in, simply navigate to the new Play Store listing and then install the game. At first, I had trouble getting past the splash screen, but eventually, I was able to jump into the title's first stage. So if you'd like to check out what EA has up its sleeve for the next iteration of Plants vs. Zombies, now's your chance. Read More
Last week we learned that Command & Conquer: Rivals would be launching worldwide on December 4th, which is today. Lo and behold EA has stuck to the release date as the game is now available for download from the Play Store. It's billed as a fast-paced real-time strategy game, but really it's just a Clash Royale clone with a C&C skin. Read More
Last month Electronic Arts released a standalone gameplay beta for FIFA Mobile, and it would appear many of the changes tested in that beta have finally made their way to the official FIFA Mobile. Along with the start of a new season, you can expect a new engine, a new VIP program, and plenty of other enhancements over last year's seasonal update. Read More
A new season for FIFA Mobile is coming soon, and it will bring with it a few new gameplay elements, but more importantly, it will also bring a new graphics engine. So in order to test this new engine out, Electronic Arts have released a small segment of the upcoming season inside of a free limited beta release on the Play Store. It is appropriately called FIFA Soccer: Gameplay Beta, and you can test it out right now. Read More
Electronic Arts have struck a deal with Tencent and Aiyou Interactive Entertainment to create Red Alert Online for Android and iOS. It will release in China sometime in the near future. There is no word if it will ever see the light of day in the West, but I imagine if it does well, we may actually see a release here. At the very least, this means the franchise isn't dead and forgotten just yet. So maybe if there is a lot of interest, EA will get off its behind and finally give us a new AAA PC game worthy of the license. Read More
That's right, after almost a year of The Sims Mobile existing as a soft launch testing release, Electronic Arts has finally seen fit to open the floodgates and officially push this title out to the rest of the world. But before you get too excited, it is sadly just like every other The Sims mobile game on our platform. This means you can expect plenty of wait timers and in-app purchases that range up to $99.99 per item. Read More
Electronic Arts have soft-launched their new Sims game in Brazil. It is titled The Sims Mobile, and it is offering an experience a bit more similar to the PC franchise. Currently, the majority of us cannot install it from the Play Store but if history is anything to judge by it should be releasing for the rest of us soon. Read More
Remember when console sports games were just about, you know, sports? RBI Baseball back on the Genesis was basically just Street Fighter with nine guys on a side: pick a team, pick an opponent, and go. EA's latest soccer games have season modes, manager modes, career modes, and on and on and on. The FIFA Ultimate Team mode, a mix of franchise management and "fantasy" sports with full-length matches, is designed so that players can pit their team-building skills against online opponents all over the world. (Oh, and also spend a bunch of money on in-app purchases for a $60 game). Read More
Last year EA released a companion app for the NBA Live console game that let you stick your face on a basketball player. This year, forget the gimmicks. You get a full blown NBA Live experience to play on your touchscreen.
NBA Live for Android has been undergoing geo-limited testing for quite the while now, with millions of people having already downloaded the title. Now it's openly available on Google Play. Read More
Match-three games are inherently derivative at this point - there's only so much spin you can put on a genre so played-out that even your grandma is probably getting a bit bored swapping kitty cats for lollipops in a landscape best described as the pink-and-yellow paletted fever dream of a six-year-old. But if you're looking for yet another match-three indulgence that sits in at least one of the more desirable mid-outer circles of hell, you might enjoy the latest take on the genre from one of its earliest innovators, Pop Cap, in the form of Bejeweled Stars.
Bejeweled Stars is, essentially, insane. Read More
