It looks like Electronic Arts isn’t wasting any time supporting Samsung’s newly announced addition to the Samsung Galaxy line of phones. Last night Samsung held their event in New York where they officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S IV, as most of you probably know already, and EA is going to be ready to support the new phone right at launch with a big selection of games.

Electronic Arts earlier this week made a statement that all future games would come with built-in microtransactions which the entire gaming industry took as being PC and console games. It’s not a far leap to come to that conclusion after EA recently included optional microtransactions in their new Dead Space 3 game. Well EA has come out to clarify their previous statement to calm all of the console and PC gamers out there. Unfortunately, it’ll probably anger all the mobile gamers instead.
Electronic Arts released not too long ago a dedicated widget for gamers to use in order to keep track of all the sales EA tends to have with their ‘Daily Deals’ promotion. This widget landed on Google Play in November 2012 and after basically three months of being live on Google Play, EA has retired the Daily Deals widget.
Electronic Arts has announced during an interview with Polygon that they will be bringing a new Ultima game to the world but for mobile gamers to enjoy. The top-down dungeon crawler will be arriving with a ridiculous amount of content and gameplay time along with both online and offline gameplay available.
Real Racing 3 has not yet launched on Android, but as some of you may have already known, it is out in Australia and New Zealand for iOS. After receiving widespread condemnation from the mobile gaming community (including us) for an abhorrent timer-based freemium structure, it looks like EA is listening to feedback (gasp!) and making some tweaks.
By now, you would’ve known that Real Racing 3 is due to be a freemium game employing a timer-based mechanic. I had my reservations about it, but reading the initial impressions of journalists from established gaming publications regarding the way the timer-system worked, I thought it won’t be so bad after all.
If you aren’t already agitated at the news that Real Racing 3 will be a free-to-play game when it lands on Android on February 28th, 2013 then maybe this will push you there finally. EA is planning to release the first ever freemium Tetris game onto Android and iOS this Spring. This Tetris game will officially be called Tetris Blitz which EA is saying will off a new twist to the original game mechanics.
So we have seen a couple of trailers, a few developer diary videos and a variety of screenshots regarding EA’s upcoming Real Racing 3 game. We’ve also been hit with the news that Real Racing 3 will be a free-to-play game where players will be able to buy the game’s secondary currency, Gold Coins, in order to speed up vehicle repair and upgrade times.
Release a game onto Google Play but don’t let anyone download it right away. That little scenario has happened a few times in the past with other games such as Avengers Initiative which sat on the Google Play store dormant for a couple of months, with not a single person able to download it. Well EA has released The Simpsons: Tapped Out onto Android finally but no one seems to be able to actually download it just yet.
It has been a few months since EA released a video of any kind relating to their upcoming racing game Real Racing 3. To re-stoke your interest back into the game, EA has released a new developer diary showing off more of the game, this time specifically taking a look at the tracks players will be racing on.
