Electronic Arts has launched its new SimCity BuildIt game for iOS and Android devices. The game is designed for gamers on the go and is free to play. The game takes advantage of touchscreens supporting gestures like pinch, zoom and rotate.
The Steam Summer Sale is in full effect, but Electronic Arts has something to say about it. They are offering one of their blockbuster games Titanfall free for 48 hours! I guess they are hoping to grab attention away from the Steam Sale.
It looks like Electronic Arts has made Battlefield 3 free on the Origin store, yes FREE! The game was one of the biggest games through 2011 – 2012 until it was replaced with Battlefield 4, which came out in October of 2013. The game will be made available free under EA’s “On the House” program where they give away titles for free for a short period of time.
EA has just announced that they will shut down online services for 50 games by July. Some of the bigger games on the list are part of the Battlefield Series and not only PC versions, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for PlayStation 2 will be shut down as well.
